Hand Hills Grapevine
Hello Hand Hills…..the weather has been nice but it looks like it is going to take a turn for the worse but hey we are thru January and it wasn’t that bad. It seems like it has been a long winter but all in all the daylight hours are getting longer and it just makes it seem better. Bring on February.
Again my page is blank with things to write about but there are a few items to mention.
The Club Meeting last night was very well attended and after the Elections everyone still had their positions with one exception. Connie Gammie is now the Secretary, replacing Laura McDonald. Welcome Connie and thanks Laura! President is Layton Rosin, Vice is Jacquie Galster, Treasurer is Day Lenfesty, and Directors with one year left are Tally Quaschnick, Keith Quaschnick, Larry McDonald and Mark Landry. Directors on for a two year term are Justin Seely, Kyle Hardy, Larry Rosin and Tamara Quaschnick. Melissa Rosin is the Casino Chairperson, Layton Rosin and Dean McDonald along with Alternate Larry McDonald are the Rodeo Reps. Wagons are looked after by Mark Landry. Keith Quaschnick is the Arena Director.
Kim Larsen has been managing the Gate at the Stampede for many years. She was raising three kids at the time and they spent a lot of time in the Gate Office “helping” Mom. She is stepping down and Amanda Hardy is her replacement. Thanks Kim and Family and welcome Amanda and Family! She too will have her kids in the Office as helpers! If you ever want to help Amanda out please do so. It is a big job she is undertaking and Kim can attest to that.
Have I told you lately that Hand Hills has the BEST volunteers?
There is a Fundraiser for the Victims of the Fire at Hilda/ Empress next month and the Club will be donating 4 weekend passes to the cause. Pay it Forward is a great way to do things. Thanks for the suggestion Tamara Quaschnick.
Get your tickets for the Valentines Steak and Lobster and if you would like to donate to the Auctions please phone Marilyn.
Get your donation ready! The Charity Sale was discussed at last night’s meeting and it is being held on Friday March 9. Tanis Graham will do the auctioneering and the proceeds will go to STARS, Halo Rescue, out of Medicine Hat and Kiddies Corner, in Hanna. The Campsite Auction will feature the same sites as last year. Watch for further details.
Till next week….Remember….Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something.
