Delia is look­ing gor­geously green this week – what a dif­fer­ence the rain made! Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom have the flower tubs planted, Delia gardeners have their bed­ding out plants in the ground, and the lilacs have never been more beau­ti­ful. Spring is here!

It was a busy Satur­day in Delia, the li­brary held their an­nual garage sale, well at­tended by sup­port­ers brows­ing through the great va­ri­ety of items for sale, so the Delia Li­brary Board would like to thank all the peo­ple who made the 6th an­nual garage sale a suc­cess. Angie and Don Moe, Pat and Murray John­son and Bill Sanger for all the work in set­ting up on Fri­day. Then a big thanks to all the vol­un­teers, Laura McDou­gal, Angie Moe, Seren­ity Wood that worked on Satur­day and a spe­cial big thanks to Fraser Dool (Hanna) who packed boxes and moved ta­bles, and was a su­per worker. Also thanks to ev­ery­one who do­nated and who pur­chased. We made $550.00 and this will go to the sum­mer read­ing pro­gram. Thanks to all.

The mem­bers of the Drop In Cen­tre were busy on Satur­day, serv­ing up that red rhubarb pie and cof­fee –thanks to all who stopped by the Drop In for dessert, we re­ally do ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port.

We are so sad to hear that the Delia Gen­eral Store will be clos­ing its doors next month, as the own­ers look for­ward to re­tire­ment. Diana and Terry have been real cham­pi­ons for our com­mu­nity, we wish them the very best and hap­pi­est re­tire­ment pos­si­ble, al­though we are go­ing to miss them ter­ri­bly.

Dates to re­mem­ber in June: June 8 – Birth­day Party at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre for mem­bers and friends June 9 – Gen­eral meet­ing at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre at 10 in the morn­ing June 12 –: Pan­cake Break­fast spon­sored by the Delia Elks and Royal Pur­ple June 11 – Bridal shower for An­drea Daly at 1 p.m., at the Nacmine Hall June 16 – Pot Luck at the Drop In Cen­tre 12 noon sharp.

The mem­bers at the Drop In Cen­tre are go­ing to miss Betty Clark, who has gone home to New Hazel­ton. Betty has been vis­it­ing her daugh­ter, Terry Trefz, and fam­ily, and was a fre­quent visi­tor to the Drop In. She was an avid card player and man­aged to beat the rest of us badly at any card game she chose. It won’t be as in­ter­est­ing at our card games now, Betty al­ways had a story to re­gale us with! Hope you come back soon Betty!

An­niver­sary con­grat­u­la­tions to Shirley and Gor­don Den­zler on June 2, to Shirley and Kevin Fried­ley on the 3rd of June, Eleanor and Rick Fair will cel­e­brate their spe­cial day on the 8th of June. Jor­dan Stiles has a birth­day on the 3rd, Terry Trefz and Dar­ren Den­zler share a birth­day on the 11th of June. Have a per­fect spe­cial day!

There is no snooze but­ton on a cat that wants break­fast.
