Entries sprout up at Rumsey garden show

.

Rumsey Record

All are invited to Laura Pennock’s 90th birthday party Sunday at the Rumsey community hall. It runs from 2 to 5 p.m.

On the last day of August, Rumsey hosted the 67th annual Garden Show and the Canadian Society National Show. Entries were up and the show was exceptional.

In 2009, there were 414 adult entries and 26 junior entries. In 2010, there were 281 adult entries and 49 junior entries. This year, there were 491 adult entries and 42 junior entries.

Look for winners’ names in next week’s paper.

The judges were treated to a delicious cold-plate lunch. When the judging was finished, the public enjoyed the show and a lovely roast-beef supper to round out the evening.

The winners in the junior flower-arranging competition, held in the Agri-plex after supper, were: Braydon Burrows, ages six to 10 years; and Jamie Hussey, 10 to 15 years.

Raffle tickets were sold on a garden solar stand set in a flower pot. The winners were Roy and Gail Ashcroft of Trochu.

The members of the garden club are most indebted to everyone who helped put on such a show. Members of the Ag Society are active in setting up for the show and folks come from great distances to bring their entries; Lacombe, High River, Stony Plain and Red Deer.

Monday, Sept. 19, is the date of the next birthday party at St. Mary’s Lodge and Extended Care in Trochu. Linda Helmer is the hostess this month and “Memory Lane” group of musicians from Three Hills will entertain with music and humour.

The ladies from Delia and Morrin were to visit the Rumsey Drop-in Centre today, but the visit has been postponed for a couple of months.
