Orkney Or­a­cle

The Drumheller Mail - - News - Cathy Bell

As the weather gets cooler, some peo­ple are tempted to stay by the home fires. Oth­ers are stay­ing close so they can fin­ish a long, drawn out har­vest. Ei­ther way, it seems to have been a quiet week in Orkney.

Wanda Moar re­turned from a week’s stay in Regina vis­it­ing her sis­ter and brother-in-law, Ta­mara and Steve But­ton. She en­joyed her stay there and had a chance to see the new­est mem­ber of the Berg/But­ton fam­ily, Leia But­ton, who is Ta­mara and Steve’s first grand­child. While there, the fam­ily went to Swift Cur­rent to in­tro­duce Leia to Ta­mara and Wanda’s mother, and the baby’s great grand­mother, Cathy Berg. Baby Leia is Cathy Berg’s first great grand­child, so a spe­cial ad­di­tion to the fam­ily.

Jens and Pat Kaack also re­turned from trav­el­ling, and made their way to their Orkney cabin to do some gar­den cleanup. They re­port hav­ing a re­lax­ing time in Ma­jorca with Jens’ brother and sis­ter-in-law from Den­mark. Af­ter that they took a tour of Croatia which they en­joyed very much.

The com­mu­nity would like to ex­tend con­do­lences to the Ber­gos fam­ily at the re­cent loss of Mar­garet Clem. Mrs. Clem of Kam­loops, was Alex Ber­gos’s youngest sis­ter and aunt to Sharon Schafer Boese and Grant Ber­gos. The Clems had a son, David, who is also from Kam­loops, and a daugh­ter, Deb­o­rah, who lives in Kelowna. Alex and his sis­ter, Jean, of Ed­mon­ton, are the last of the Ber­gos sib­lings who were raised here in the Orkney district.

Har­vest­ing has re­quired more than the usual amount of pa­tience this year. Here’s hop­ing for warmer, dryer weather so the farm­ers can safely fin­ish bring­ing in the crop.
