Hello Hand Hills...as we leave Au­gust be­hind and head into the month of Septem­ber it leaves one won­der­ing where the time has gone. The kids are back in school, har­vest is hap­pen­ing and life just goes faster and faster. Take some time to un­wind and re­lax. En­joy the last dog days of sum­mer!

It was a very fit­ting party for a great cou­ple! Bob and Pinky Ta­bor cel­e­brated their (early) 50th Wed­ding An­niver­sary at the Club­house on Satur­day, Au­gust 25. Their four kids and their fam­i­lies were all there. Nancy and Steven and Dorothy and Eileen came from Leth­bridge, Heather and Eg­bert from Cal­gary, Suzanne and Jamie and Liam and Kim came all the way from Ot­tawa and Brian came from Olds. Ex­tended fam­ily was there. Bob’s 3 brothers and his sis­ter and Pinky’s two brothers and a sis­ter along with two of her aunts en­joyed the night. The top from their orig­i­nal wed­ding cake was on the head ta­ble. From 2 1/2 months and up to the age of 75+ friends and fam­ily en­joyed a great Hand Hills sup­per, awe­some old time mu­sic from Bert Hoy and the Bad­lan­ders and lots of laughs and vis­it­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions Bob and Pinky! You know how to throw a party! The day af­ter the party, Bob and Pinky donned their wed­ding out­fits and yes they still fit! I have the pic­ture!

A very fa­mil­iar sight when Bob and Pinky get to­gether is the Big Six Group. This group con­sists of six col­lege friends of Bob’s who have been get­ting to­gether every year for the last 55 plus years. At the party they were miss­ing one of them I be­lieve. How of­ten do you hear of that hap­pen­ing? (I think that there is a news­pa­per story that needs to be writ­ten about this!)

Also tak­ing in the cel­e­bra­tion was Don and Bev Hall and Stan and Lo­rilee Mar­shall who both have passed the 50th mile­stone in their mar­ried life. It was great to see them out on the dance floor and en­joy­ing the night. Does my heart good to re­port on these good hap­pen­ings!

Ella Beck, daugh­ter Lorna and hubby Brian took an 11 day trip to Van­cou­ver. Ella used her time on the Is­land to visit with son Dar­rell whom she had not seen in a few years. Dar­rell lives in Say­ward where he has worked at the Fish Hatchery for 10 years. They picked black­ber­ries and plums and en­joyed the walks along the beach col­lect­ing seashells and sand dol­lars. Lorna, Brian and Ella toured Che­mai­nus and fur­ther south on the Is­land. Sounds like a great trip!

I heard that the Corb Lund, Tim Hus Con­cert held in Drumheller was a great event. A dozen peo­ple that at­tended the con­cert, stopped in on their way home to fin­ish off their evening at the 50th An­niver­sary Party. Two great events in one night is a win-win!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Char­lie Field­ing as he is cur­rently in the Hanna Hos­pi­tal. Stop in and have a visit with this great guy. Also heard his sis­ter Ada was in the hos­pi­tal but is back at the Lodge do­ing good. Hello Char­lie and Ada !

Off to Grade 1 in Delia is Mairi Rosin and Rowan Hardy. This is the start of some­thing good. En­joy it! Any other Grade On­ers I missed? Please let me know. Larry Rosin is back driv­ing school bus. This has been a long time job of his!

Till next time... maybe the Fall sea­son has ar­rived.... en­joy all the good things it has to of­fer!
