Hope all the fa­thers had won­der­ful Fa­ther’s Day.

Nice to have the rain last week­end, ac­cord­ing to our gauge about half an inch from Thurs­day to Fri­day. Sure helps with not hav­ing to wa­ter ev­ery­thing and so much bet­ter for the plants to grow. Gar­dens are com­ing along nicely and the aroma from the lilacs are won­der­ful.

In Li­brary news, Minecraft and Story Time with Grant and Jared is on July 6 and Au­gust 17. There are only 12 spots avail­able, so sign up at the Li­brary if you are in­ter­ested. Also con­tact the Li­brary at 403-572-3440 or stop in the sign up for the Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gram.

The GrowRX fundraiser is hap­pen­ing at the Li­brary un­til the end of July. Be sure to check it out, good prod­ucts and sup­ports the Li­brary and a lo­cal com­pany.

Did you know that in 1901, Herb Gib­son sit­u­ated on the creek, he did not re­main long and sold out to Sam Mc­Fad­den some­time in 1902. Wyn­d­ham Bros. (Alex, Tim and Charley) sit­u­ated on the Knee­hill creek about that time. They came from their home place on the Bow river, where the Carse­land bridge now crosses. Their fa­ther Col. Al­fred Wyn­d­ham set­tled on the Bow River in 1886. Alec, the el­dest, came west with the N.W.M.P. to Fort Walsh in 1878.

Have a great week ev­ery­one.
