Fireman’s Mothers’ Day Breakfast set for Sunday morning

This is a longstanding tradition that always promises a good breakfast and usually a good visit with the neighbours.

RUMSEY RECORD — Winter is refusing to leave us this year it seems. We had a taste of spring and now Mother Nature is laughing at all of us who put away the winter gear and attempted to enjoy the warmer, brighter days and evenings. Just think, the grass will be greener and the flowers will be brighter; just stay warm until it’s over.

The birthday club held their monthly celebration at St. Mary’s Lodge on Monday, April 17 with Donna Sengaus as hostess. There were two birthdays in extended care: Christel Jakob and Mabel Baker. In the lodge there was only one birthday, Leo Knievel. It was a celebration all the same; doesn’t matter if there are few or many. Thank you to all the ladies who commit their time to this fun, monthly event. Next month, the party will be held on Monday, May 15 and Pat Hatt will be hosting.

Linda Helmer stopped in to let me know that Josie Heck passed away on Thursday, March 16 in Calgary. Frank and Josie were part of our community from 1969 to 1972 while Frank worked in the Federal Elevator. He continued to work for the Federal until the Alberta Wheat Pool bought them out. They moved to Crossfield in 1972 where Frank continued his work as an elevator agent and Josie worked at the Seniors Lodge there. They had five children Shirley, Lyle, Brenda, Bonnie and Patsy.

Don’t forget the Fireman’s Mothers’ Day Breakfast on Sunday, May 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. This is a longstanding tradition that always promises a good breakfast and usually a good visit with the neighbours so mark it on your calendar. Next in May is Kennady Gridley and Justin Anderson’s wedding shower to be held at the hall on May 26 at 7:30 p.m. There are two more showers in the books for June: Cody Goddard and Baylee Nelson’s on June 1, then Drew Tolman and Shayla Sandum’s on June 8. Also, Colby Couturier and Alyssa Yavis are getting married in July so since they have moved away but we never forget a hometown boy, we are collecting money for them with Karrie or myself as a wedding gift from the community.

Drumheller and District 4-H are celebrating 100 years with a party down at Rowley on June 10 starting at 2 p.m. They have plenty of games and entertainment planned along with a special guest, Blake Reid, on stage at 3 p.m. Tickets are $5 each and you can get yours from Melanie (403-772-0000), Janice (403-364-2040) or Koren (403-823-4048).

Finally, a chuckle from my son to brighten your day.

There was this preacher who was an avid golfer. Every chance he could get, he could be found on the golf course swinging away. It was an obsession. One Sunday was a picture perfect day for golfing. The sun was out, no clouds in the sky, and the temperature was just right. The preacher was in a quandary as to what to do, and shortly, the urge to play golf overcame him. He called an assistant to tell him that he was sick and could not do church, packed the car up, and drove three hours to a golf course where no one would recognize him. Happily, he began to play the course. An angel up above was watching the preacher and was quite perturbed. He went to God and said, “Look at the preacher. He should be punished for what he is doing.” God nodded in agreement. The preacher teed up on the first hole. He swung at the ball, and it sailed effortlessly through the air and landed right in the cup 350 yards away. A picture perfect hole-in-one. He was amazed and excited. The angel was a little shocked. He turned to God and said, “Begging Your pardon, but I thought You were going to punish him.” God smiled. “Think about it who can he tell?”

Have a great week!
