Here we are at the last week of August already and school is fast approaching for all the young people in our community.
Morrin School is set to open their doors on Aug. 31 for their students. Big Valley and Stettler will start on Sept. 2 and Trochu will open their doors for students on Sept 1. Good luck to all the students who are returning and to all students who are heading off to post-secondary somewhere.
I know you will just be reading this on Wednesday so you will barely have time to get some clean clothes on and head to the Garden Show, which will be held at the Agriplex. The doors will open to the public at 4 p.m. and supper will start at 5 p.m. to last until 7, with the children’s flower arranging to happen at 7:30. The awards ceremony will follow after that.
Also, remember that the library will be holding the photo contest during the open hours of the show and I will call upon the general public to be my judges for the favourite photos for next year’s calendar. It will be a good evening in town, so I hope you will plan to attend.
Congratulations to Gene and Betty Pennock as they will be walking their oldest daughter, Katie, down the aisle this coming weekend at the Rumsey Hall. I hope all goes well, I have heard from mom that Katie is always very well organized so it sounds like a wedding well under control.
Barb Luhti called me last week to say that Jorge has been spending some time in the Red Deer hospital feeling a little under the weather so keep him in your prayers and I hope he gets feeling better quickly.
My thought for you this week is:
If you cannot do great things, you can at least do small things in a great way.
Have a great week!
