The boys in the local teen band, Paper Bag Skirt, are putting on a benefit concert on June 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. and the proceeds will go to the Slave Lake disaster effort. Also appearing is the band Tork. They will appreciate your support.

All of the Mother Teresa students and the staff, Veronica Pinkosky, Mike Courtney, Eric Neilson, Tracey Solden and Maxine Baird, journeyed to Edmonton on June 1 for their annual year end field trip. At 11 a.m., they attended a baseball game between the Edmonton Capitals and Calgary Vipers. The afternoon saw them at the ”virtually inclined” rock climbing gym where they received training techniques and had a great time.

Congratulations to Leif Neufeld for winning an award for his entry in the Remembrance Day poster contest.

Grades 1 to 6 students attended their track meet on May 28 at the Gus Wetter school. Participating school were Christ King, Brownfield, Theresetta, Gus Wetter and Mother Teresa. Students receiving awards were Liam Grice, winning standing broad jump and Tiana Gamroth who won standing broad jump and running broad jump. On May 31, the Grades 4 to 8 students attended the East Central track meet in Provost. Placing first were Wyatt Kent in Discus; Tiana Gamroth with medals in the 50 M dash and standing broad; Haley Grice in shot put and Madelyn Schauer for shot put.

Thankyou to the school students who once again were able to clean up the town.

District Deputy Dale Kent and Matthew Koenraadt were recently in Drayton Valley attending the Provincial Elks conference. Also attending was Pat Annett from the Castor Elks.

Bette Hronek, Donna Howe, Donnas daughters, Erin, Jill and Leanne and Wendy Howe are to be commended for participating in the MS walk in Red Deer on May 29.

On June 11 and 12 the Howe girls will take part in the MS bike-a-thon from Leduc to Camrose on day one and back to Leduc on day two. They are busy testing out comfy bike seats.

It was great to see Dave and Linda Chick home for the weekend.

We join the family of Raymond and Juliette (Fetaz) Cordel in wishing them a happy 65 wedding anniversary. They were married June 3, 1946.

Friends of Patsy Sorensen will be happy to hear that she is now a resident at the Heritage House in Stettler.

It was nice to see Anne Thibault from Forestburg on Friday, and she wishes to be remembered to her friends. She was one of the many former neighbors and relatives who returned to attend the funeral services for Melvin Haeberle.

Sympathy is extended to Melody and Dale Kent and family on the passing of Mel’s uncle, Ken Pfeiffer of Stettler on Thursday.

Friends and family gathered Saturday to help Roy Haeberle celebrate his 89th birthday, although the actual date is June 9. Have a great day, Roy.

Donna Howe and her daughters attended a Frasier family reunion at Blackfalds camp ground last week. The Frasier family are on her mom, Dot Rowland’s, side; Grannie Booker was a Frasier and they hadn’t met any of these relatives before, so it was a great experience.

Coming up: June 15 – Community meeting at the Hall for the 100th anniversary. 7pm. Everyone is invited.
