Monday, Sept. 21, the ladies of the district travelled to Trochu to host the regular monthly birthday party. Linda Helmer was the hostess and everyone enjoyed the birthday carrot cakes. Rose and her group from Delburne were on hand to play music for everyone’s enjoyment. Jim Deering played with Rose, (keyboard) and Bill Werner on fiddle.

Prior to refreshments, Ely Goddard, who now is a resident of the lodge, played a couple of tunes on Bill’s fiddle. Right now Ely’s fiddle is broken down, but at his ripe old age of 90, he still fiddles out a lively tune. In his younger years, he played regularly with Bill and Rose.

Those celebrating September birthdays were Ida Sydness, Charles Hayes and Don St. Johns. Each received a small gift from the Rumsey Ag. Society. October birthdays will be celebrated on Oct. 19 when Lois Kiemele will be the hostess. Marian Stiekle and her group from Three Hills will be the entertainment.

Amy Goddard is now home from hospital after spending the best part of the week there. Her gall bladder surgery was on Tuesday, Sept. 22 and all is well. She is very glad to be home but also thankful of the care she received.

The board of St. Mary’s in Trochu are planning a gala event on Saturday Nov. 14 in the Trochu community hall. Business and families can sponsor tables.

The whole week was good weather for harvesting and there was a lot of that done. Some of the farmers are done combining, all that is ready, but Saturday night’s rain put a stop to field work for a couple of days. Nights are really cold now, so it is truly fall.

The Big Valley Elks are sponsoring Brett Kissel on Saturday, Nov. 14 in the Big Valley Jubilee Hall as one of their annual fundraisers.
