The last Sunday of the month, Feb. 26 make sure you come to the Botha Hall for some great entertainment by the band “Ralph and Friends” at the Old Tyme Dance Club. There is no age limit, so come on out and enjoy the music. They are a fantastic band and you will not want to miss out. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The theme of this dance will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, so please wear something green.

It’s been a little over a year since Jace Thorsteinson had his tragic accident and talk about a strong, very determined young gentleman. We are all very proud of him. Jamie, Jace’s mother says they have been really busy still with therapies for Jace, which takes place five days per week. Jace attends school full time as a student and has been roping three to four times per week, which is practice and therapy together. Jace is very proud of his Tuf Kat, which he received earlier this year, and uses it quite a bit for practice.

Like Jamie stated, Neil and herself have learnt to listen to their guts and follow their feelings (as we all should do as parents) by being their children’s advocate and to think outside the box. Jamie has looked for, researched and pursued therapy for Jace that is not considered traditional medicine. There is more out there than medical doctors, it just takes time, money and effort but in the end it’s all worth it. If you try something and it works some but not all the way, try something else. Jamie stated, as parents we know our children and what’s best for them, we are holding our children’s future in our hands, so handle it wisely.

As they say, Don’t fear the strongest, fear the one who will never give up.”
