Get ready for the 2011 STARS ride


Rumsey Record

Monday, July 19th, the ladies of the district travelled to Trochu on a very hot, hot day, to host the birthday party of the month of July. Kendra Kiemele took time away from her busy days to bake cakes and host the party. Jonathon and Noel, her two sons accompanied her and were a big hit with the residents who always enjoy the company of young folks.

There were nine residents having July birthdays; each received a small useful gift from the Rumsey Ag Society. Henry Gregg, Norah Scheurer, Dave Mathews, Grace Boyden,Myrtle Upton, Marie Lorenz, Marie Burren, Anne Couch, and Isaiah Reed.

“Memory Lane” group of musicians from Three Hills were on hand to play music and entertain for the afternoon.

August birthday party will be on 15th when Laura Griffith will be the hostess.

On July 23rd a very nice afternoon was enjoyed by all as folks and family gathered at the Tolman ranch site to celebrate 100 years of their farm.

I had the privilege to camp for the week at my niece’s place in Rockyford as she prepared for this weekend of the bi-annual Clausen’s cousins reunion. Over fifty of us enjoyed the weekend visiting, eating, visiting and eating some more. Cousins came from as far away as Vancouver. It was just great.

Coming up very fast is the 2011 STARS ride. This is the 22nd annual ride and to date $478,473 has been raised. We have the honour of being the longest running fundraiser for STARS.

The date of the ride is Sunday, August 7th, and the format for the day is very similar to previous years, with the staff from the office bringing souvenirs for sale. The last of the 20th anniversary T-shirts will be on offer for a reduced price. This year there is a silent auction planned and the poker rally, breakfast cooked up by the Rumsey Fire Dept. and the supper at 4pm. prepared by the ‘Country Cookers’. For anyone who would like more information about the ride, just give me a call and I will try and help you out. 368-2132.

Give me a call with your summer activities as I’m sure we are not the only family that has had a family reunion or some such celebration.

I know the Steen family were at Old McDonald’s campground at Buffalo Lake for a week and Helen said that the count was over 65. That’s just Helen and Len’s family.
