Hello Hand Hills and Wel­come 2019…..I hope every­one had a great New Years Eve where you talked about the old and won­dered about the New Year. The Club had about 25 peo­ple take part in the party and although it was a very quiet night it was a great way to catch up on fam­ily and friends. We need to be ready for any­thing this new year throws at us. Bring it on!

Ed Gammie had knee re­place­ment surgery three weeks ago. Any­one who knows Ed will know this is a hard man to keep down but Nurse Tina has him un­der con­trol. Take the time needed to heal!

Robert Hoff also had knee surgery on both knees in No­vem­ber and I hear he is re­coup­ing well.

There is just some­thing about the New Year that speaks love to every­one. There were two en­gage­ments that I have heard of.

Ta­mara Quaschnick, in her own words, got to Ring in the New Year as Dar­ren Schultz asked and she said Yes!!! Dar­ren you are get­ting the com­plete deal with this gal! Con­grat­u­la­tions to this great cou­ple!

Jaydee Bixby sur­prised Meghan Spicer when he got down on his knee and popped the big ques­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions to this cou­ple. Grandpa Fred get ready for a party!

Spencer and Kent Fried­ley found the per­fect way to start a new year. They wel­comed a baby girl into their world. Grand­par­ents Shel­don, Su­san Lock­hart and Kevin and Shirley Fried­ley are sure to love cud­dling Brooke Spencer! Con­grat­u­la­tions! Wel­come to the Grand­par­ent Club Lock­harts!

At the be­gin­ning of De­cem­ber the Tommy Vre­de­goor fam­ily hopped on a plane and flew to New Brunswick for a 10 day hol­i­day. Gabrielle’s Grand­fa­ther was cel­e­brat­ing his 90th birth­day and it was a great rea­son to visit all the fam­ily on the east coast. While there, they rented a ve­hi­cle and toured the coast. Our Christ­mas card from them was a pic­ture of them at Peggy’s’ Cove. They had a great time.

Ray Siep­pert had open heart surgery on De­cem­ber 16 and at present time he is in the Hanna Hospi­tal. (by now he might be at daugh­ter Michelle’s’). I am sure he would en­joy a visit. Get well Ray we are all pulling for you. A crew made up of the neigh­bours got to­gether to gather and ship Ray’s calves while he was un­der the weather and that is how the world should work.

Get your tick­ets for the Valen­tines Steak and Lobster on Fe­bru­ary 9. They are avail­able by call­ing this re­porter.

Please mark Jan­uary 24 on your cal­en­dar as that is the date for the An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing of the Club. Let your voice be heard!

Till next time….let me know what is hap­pen­ing in your world. Lots of peo­ple love my col­umn and I need your help to keep this Grapevine go­ing.
