The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIED­S - Terry Arm­strong

Thank you to the Hus­sar Ma­sons for their gen­er­ous do­na­tion to the Hus­sar Ru­ral Fire As­so­ci­a­tion new fire en­gine and tools for it. The new en­gine is un­der con­struc­tion and about two months away from de­liv­ery. The as­so­ci­a­tion has now raised enough funds to pay our share of the truck. We are just rais­ing ad­di­tional funds for some high vol­ume hose and a few other tools for the truck. We are re­ally grate­ful to all the donors and we will be hon­our­ing them (In­di­vid­u­als, Or­ga­ni­za­tions and Cor­po­rate) when we of­fi­cially put the new truck into ser­vice in June. Thank you again from your fire­fight­ers!

The hockey and ringette sea­son is wind­ing down for many as teams move into play­offs. For those that make play­offs con­grat­u­la­tions and for those that don’t re­mem­ber the fun, the friend­ships and the phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity. Noone will re­mem­ber all the games that were won and lost how­ever the fun times will re­main with you for­ever. Re­mem­ber to thank all the coaches, man­agers and other vol­un­teers – with­out you the kids would not have the sport to re­mem­ber. Also, re­mem­ber to thank all of the par­ents and spec­ta­tors who came to watch and cheer. Re­mem­ber how lucky you are to have the health to be able to do phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties – there are many who do not.

The Hus­sar Lions have set out eye glass col­lec­tion boxes at Chi­nook Fi­nan­cial, the Sun­down­ers’ and the Hus­sar Hall. As well as pre­scrip­tion lenses you may also drop off non-pre­scrip­tion sun­glasses and also “Read­ers”.

You can also drop off parts and pieces of glasses (lenses, screws, etc), as long as those pieces are in plas­tic bags. The Hus­sar Lions thank you in ad­vance for your do­na­tions.

Mark your cal­en­dar! The Hus­sar Sun­down­ers will be spon­sor­ing a fun evening April 7 at the Cen­tre fea­tur­ing The Good Time Boys. The evening will kick off with a pot-luck sup­per at 6:00 and en­ter­tain­ment at 7:00. All are wel­come who want to have a “good time”.

The com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions meet­ing will be held on April 23 at 7:30 at the Hus­sar hall so mark your cal­en­dars. This meet­ing has been an an­nual event where the groups re­port about their plans for the up­com­ing year, what they did in the past year and their fi­nan­cial sta­tus. Each group in Hus­sar is asked to send a rep­re­sen­ta­tive to speak on be­half of their or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Sr High mixed curl­ing team for win­ning sil­ver medal in In­dus – Emma Arm­strong and Lane Wil­son played from here.

A group of Hus­sar Se­niors went on a bus trip on Valen­tine’s Day. Thanks to John and Rene Jensen for all the plan­ning. For any on face­book you could see the pic­ture with the cap­tion “Se­nior bus leav­ing for high risk in­vest­ment meet­ing at cash casino”. There were no high rollers how­ever a won­der­ful day of vis­it­ing in­cluded lunch and then sup­per in Strath­more. Many played crib when they got back to Hus­sar. Con­grats to Rori Holm and The Rock­y­ford Ringers U12 who played Cochrane and Air­drie this week­end. They walked away with one win and one tie which ad­vanced them to provin­cials. They will play Provin­cials on March 10-12, in St. Al­bert. Good luck to the team!

Sounds like many peo­ple from Hus­sar en­joyed one of the 9 shows of Garth Brooks con­certs in Ed­mon­ton.
