I would like to start my column today by welcoming back our editor-in-chief, Mustafa! This news has given us the booster shot we needed. The community news columns are very important; they keep the smaller towns and surrounding countryside connected. A birth, a wedding, a coming event and yes, even a death is important to all. Please give me a call, let me put you on my call list, e-mail or text me. Let the world know we are alive and well!
On that note, Donna Gordon and baby Julia, along with Donna’s daughter Shelly; Courtney and her daughter Halayna were joined by Donna’s sister Lanna, her daughter Sabrina and granddaughters Brooke and Breanna on an all-girls trip to Hawaii where they stayed a week at the Disney Resort. When asked what the highlights were, Donna replied, “A week in the sun!”
After a trip to Mexico, Don and Elsie Yates took turns traveling to Maryland, USA. Don spent a week at son Glen and Alma’s and enjoyed granddaughter Sophia. Then it was Elsie’s turn, she stayed for two weeks, making sure Sophia remembers Grandma. They too enjoyed the sunny climate.

The Big Knife 4-H Beef Club took part in the public speaking regionals at the Stettler Agriplex as non-participants helping with setup, cleanup, timers.

At the time of this writing I could not find out any results. The club will be doing their community service this Friday at the Roughstock Rodeo in Stettler.
