Greet­ings & Sa­lu­ta­tions! Here’s what’s new this week in the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity…

What’s fun­ner than a field trip? Not much! The Stan­dard Mu­nic­i­pal Li­brary has once again been the re­cip­i­ent of a grant from WFCSS to pro­vide this event. Kids age 8 & up are in­vited to join in on Thurs­day, July 25 to visit Rose­bud Val­ley Honey, EH Farms (Pigs & Chick­ens), and a lo­cal Hut­terite Colony. Li­brary mem­ber­ship not re­quired, but as al­ways en­cour­aged! Reg­is­tra­tion & per­mis­sion slip re­quired by Saturday, July 20. For more in­for­ma­tion please call Adreena at 403 644 3995, or stop in at the li­brary.

Did you know… Bees have 5 eyes and 6 legs. Honey bees har­vest nec­tar and pollen from flow­er­ing plants. Male bees in the hive are called drones and they do not have a stinger. Worker bees are fe­males. They do all the dif­fer­ent tasks needed to op­er­ate and main­tain the hive. Honey bees live in large groups called colonies, and an av­er­age bee­hive can hold around 50,000 bees.

Quote of the week… “Noth­ing beats an ex­cit­ing hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence to deepen learn­ing. The magic of a field trip isn’t just the sub­ject. It’s a break in rou­tine and ad­ven­ture that opens up chil­dren’s minds to new things.” – Anony­mous

This is Adreena re­port­ing for the Vil­lage of Stan­dard. Dead­line for sub­mis­sion is Friday for the fol­low­ing week. Please sub­mit newz items to the stan­dard­[email protected] , phone 403-644-3995 or stop in at the li­brary.
