A Spe­cial Events com­mit­tee has been formed in Hus­sar to cel­e­brate Canada’s 150th Birth­day on July 1. A big day is planned start­ing at 1 pm with games and en­ter­tain­ment, a catered roasted pig & turkey sup­per, street dance, and fire­works. The in­ten­tion is for this to be a cost free day for ev­ery­one. Af­ter­noon ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude pedal cars, bouncy cas­tle, var­i­ous races, dunk tank, show and shine, card and board games, horse­shoes, ball games, and pos­si­bly more.

Of course, this all costs money. The com­mit­tee has can­vassed local busi­nesses and or­ga­ni­za­tions, and they have been very gen­er­ous with their sup­port. How­ever, they are still in need of fund­ing. All do­na­tions (busi­ness or per­sonal) will re­ceive a tax de­ductible re­ceipt from the vil­lage. Do­na­tions can be made at the vil­lage of­fice. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Dianne Taubert, Sandi Vi­cic, Lois Thomp­son, Marie Faye, Dawn Zim­mer­man, Ca­role San­terre, or Corey Fisher. Hop­ing for your sup­port with fund­ing, vol­un­teer­ing and your at­ten­dance.

Linda, Ethan, and Everett Thomp­son along with Linda’s par­ents spent April 12-21 in North Carolina vis­it­ing her brother and his fam­ily who re­side there. They left Dad home to man the farm at this busy time of year. High­lights for the boys in­cluded a night Easter egg hunt, play­ing on the beach and see­ing the At­lantic Ocean for the first time, and of course, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing an early sum­mer with their cousins as tem­per­a­tures were in the mid to high twenties for their trip.

Base­ball sea­son has started and the Hus­sar Mi­nor Ball As­soc. has a Midget team. They played their sea­son opener game on Thurs­day, May 4 against Sik­sika win­ning 21-5. Wel­come back to our Midget coaches Kyle Gor­don & Wes Kirk­patrick. Please come cheer the team on when Strath­more comes to Hus­sar for the home opener at 6:30 pm on Wed­nes­day, May 10.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mary San­dum, Grace Gre­gory, Dex­ter Hale, Jordan Holm, Mor­gan Peake and Ethan Thomp­son who re­cently com­pleted a Hunters Ed­u­ca­tion course with Russ Thomp­son. All were suc­cess­ful in earn­ing their cer­tifi­cates and hav­ing some fun along the way.

On May 5, Wheat­land Cross­ing School, hosted an all-day Stu­dent Con­fer­ence. The day started with a per­for­mance by Sa-fire who de­lighted us with her hula hoop­ing and fire per­for­mance. Then, all stu­dents from K-12 at­tended three dif­fer­ent ses­sions through­out the day. Ses­sions var­ied from can­vas paint­ing, clay, bumper balls, disc golf, drama, nu­tri­tion, and more. The day cul­mi­nated with a per­for­mance by the acapella group Hoja. Lots of learn­ing took place to cel­e­brate Ed­u­ca­tion Week.

It’s fi­nally here! By the time you read this, the keys will have been handed over, the boxes are be­ing packed, and we are ex­cit­edly look­ing for­ward to mov­ing into our new build­ing. Wheat­land Cross­ing School is open to all stu­dents on Mon­day, May 15. In prepa­ra­tion for the move, there will be no school for all Wheat­land Cross­ing stu­dents on Fri­day, May 12. There will be an of­fi­cial grand open­ing at a later date so stay tuned for de­tails. If you just can’t wait to see it, Mrs. Moczulski is sure that she can give you a tour in ex­change for some box un­pack­ing help…ha ha.

Thank you to all who of­fered their help to in­stall Wheat­land Cross­ing new play­ground on May 9-12. The stu­dents are thrilled to have both a new build­ing and a new play­ground in the same week. Re­mem­ber to check the Wheat­land Cross­ing web­page for all the lat­est hap­pen­ings at the school.

On Satur­day May 6, the Hus­sar 4-H Multi Club par­tic­i­pated in the High­way Cleanup. The mem­bers picked up garbage on High­way 56 be­tween High­way 564 south to High­way 561 and then do­nated their time to clean the stretch be­tween High­way 56 go­ing west into town. They ended the morn­ing en­joy­ing beef on a bun for lunch at the hall.

On Sun­day, May 7, a beau­ti­ful bri­dal shower was held to honor Beth Lein (bride­elect of Brad Dun­das) at the Hus­sar Com­mu­nity Hall. Rae-Ann Knud­sen was the MC for the af­ter­noon and she thanked Yvonne Thew for mak­ing the towel cake. Flow­er­girl Mad­die Schu­man sang a song and then Marli and Jac­que­lyn San­dum per­formed solo dances. Ni­cole San­terre or­ga­nized the purse game and then Beth’s sis­ter Tara gave the trib­ute to the bride. A de­li­cious lunch was served by the shower com­mit­tee and then Beth opened her gifts. Brad & Beth will be mar­ried on July 8 in Hus­sar. The com­mu­nity wishes them the very best.
