Hope ev­ery­one en­joyed Fathers’ day Sun­day with their fam­i­lies around them. My friend Doreen came up from Drumheller for the day, and as we have nei­ther fathers nor our chil­drens’ fathers any­more, we went out for church, a nice din­ner and a lovely drive in the coun­try, stop­ping to visit friend Joan along the way. Thanks Doreen, for mak­ing what could have been a sad day into an en­joy­able day! Some­times mem­o­ries make us sad, but a good friend at the pre­cise mo­ment is a life­saver – well, a mood changer any­way.

The Delia Drop In Cen­tre was a busy place on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, as Mrs. Johnson brought her stu­dents to the Cen­tre to visit the mem­bers. The chil­dren brought gaily dec­o­rated plant pots with them and to­gether the mem­bers and chil­dren planted petu­nias while dis­cussing school days past and present. We thor­oughly en­joyed spend­ing time with such a nice group of chil­dren. Thank you, Mrs. Johnson, for think­ing of the Drop In mem­bers, we are look­ing for­ward to hav­ing the chil­dren visit again soon.

The June Birth­day party at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre was also held on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, af­ter 2 o’clock, with eight mem­bers in at­ten­dance, with Doreen and Eva as hostesses for the day. The birth­day girl for the day was Peggy Anderson who had a birth­day in May. Char­lotte also had a May birth­day but was un­able to at­tend the party. Card bingo was played for en­ter­tain­ment, while an orange “poke” cake with Kool Whip was served for dessert. Peggy won the door prize, a pot­ted pink Be­go­nia. The next Birth­day party at the Drop In will be held in Septem­ber.

The gen­eral meet­ing at the Drop In Cen­tre will take place on Thurs­day, June 22, at 10 in the morn­ing. Ev­ery­one wel­come to come and hear what the Drop In is plan­ning, as this will be the last meet­ing un­til Septem­ber.
