The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIED­S -

We are so proud of the young peo­ple in our com­mu­nity ! On Fri­day, June 24, 2016, two of these young peo­ple, Raine McDougald and Avril Wil­son, were hon­oured at Canada Olympic Park in Cal­gary when they re­ceived their cer­tifi­cates for earn­ing Gold Level of the Duke of Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Awards of Canada. Their awards were pre­sented by his high­ness, Prince Ed­ward, Earl of Wes­sex on be­half of his father the Duke of Ed­in­burgh. There were 148 re­cip­i­ents from all over Al­berta. These young folks had pre­vi­ously re­ceived a gold pin for their ac­com­plish­ments. Both Avril and Raine re­marked that Prince Ed­ward had a great sense of hu­mour as he spoke to each of them. Raine McDougald was hon­oured to give the thank you speech to the Prince on be­half of all the re­cip­i­ents. Both par­ents, Brad and Koren McDougald and Der­rick and Con­nie Wil­son were present for the cer­e­mony. How spe­cial is it to have two from a small farm com­mu­nity re­ceive such recog­ni­tion. Also to be con­grat­u­lated from this area are Madi­son Col­berg from Drumheller, Mo­riah Ohlhauser from Car­bon and Low­ell Nel­son from Mor­rin. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all these fine and spe­cial young peo­ple.

Our sym­pa­thy to Karen Leon­hardt and part­ner Ken Staples of Ed­mon­ton and Lac La Biche on the pass­ing of Ken’s mother Made­line Staples at the age of 97 years. Ron and I and Les­lie at­tended the fu­neral in Fort Saskatchew­an on Mon­day, June 20.
