Isn’t it nice to look out your win­dow and see grass (al­beit not green yet) where snow­banks were a few weeks ago? We didn’t get the late snow­storm that Cal­gary had this week, so Delia gar­den­ers will be out in full force rak­ing lawns and get­ting yards cleaned up for the sea­son. It won’t be long be­fore Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom will be putting out bed­ding out plants to brighten up the Vil­lage.

Here are some events hap­pen­ing over the next month or two in Delia to mark on your cal­en­dar... April 16 of course was the pro­vin­cial elec­tion, vot­ing in Delia was at the Com­mu­nity Hall on Tues­day, so there was no bingo in the hall on Tues­day night -for this week only. Bingo re­turns on April 23, but on April 16 I hope you all got out and voted for the can­di­date of your choice.

The memo­rial for Rick Fair will take place on Satur­day, May 11, at 2 p.m., in the Delia Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

April 18 is pot luck at the Drop In Cen­tre, bring a dish and join the mem­bers for lunch at noon sharp. Ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day is cof­fee morn­ing at the Drop In Cen­tre, ev­ery­one is en­cour­aged to stop in for cof­fee, join in a game of cards or pool if you like, and have a visit with your neigh­bors. The gen­eral meet­ing at the Drop In was held on Thurs­day morn­ing, when plans were dis­cussed for sum­mer ac­tiv­i­ties. The next gen­eral meet­ing will be held on Thurs­day, May 9, at 10 a.m. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend. The next Birth­day party for mem­bers and guests hav­ing birthdays in April, May or June will be held on Wed­nes­day, May 22 at 2 p.m. with Doreen and Eva as hostesses. Mark your cal­en­dar.

Robyn Thompson-Lake has been of­fi­cially ac­claimed as the new Vil­lage Coun­cil­lor for the Vil­lage of Delia, fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of Coun­cil­lor Dawn Ban­croft. Con­grat­u­la­tions Robyn, en­joy your new po­si­tion

The Elks Pan­cake Break­fast will be held on May 12- Mother’s Day- in the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre from 9 un­til noon. As it is also Mother’s Day, this will be a spe­cial treat for Mom, so take her out for break­fast and win some brownie points.

The Delia Li­brary will be closed April 19 - 26. See you again on April 29. Happy Easter.

Happy Birth­day in the com­ing weeks in April to Joan Morrison, Eva Nielsen, Eric An­der­sen, Travis Fried­ley, Carol Sis­ley and Linda Karg. Hope your day is awe­some.

I am tak­ing a break from writ­ing this col­umn for a while, as I have some time con­sum­ing projects lined up for the Spring and Sum­mer, which will keep me busy. If some one would like to take over writ­ing the col­umn, that would be great. For now, then, have your­self a won­der­ful Easter.

En­joy your sum­mer, take care and have a fun sum­mer!
