Has spring really arrived?

Can you really believe that spring is here? It looks like it in our part of the work over the weekend, but our family members that live in Blackfalds say that Saturday was a blizzard. I guess it matters where you live whether March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb or vice versa.

Tuesday, March 29, a baby girl was born in Drumheller hospital to Jamie Foesier and Patrick Charron. Baby Jayne Marley came into the world at eight pounds but decided to cause a little excitement for everyone, so her and her mom travelled to Calgary to spend the next five days in the Neonatal wing of Foothills Hospital. All is well that ends well, as baby and mom returned home to Rowley on Sunday, April 3. Congratulations to everyone.

Best wishes to Glen Trout as he tries out his new living conditions at Heart Haven lodge in Stettler. It’s his turn to be looked after as he looked after everyone else for years when he was a faithful school bus driver in our area.

Several folks from the area travelled to Red Deer on March 31 to attend the funeral services for Margaret Harty, a one-time resident of the Rumsey area. Sympathy to all the family.

Friday, April 1, Sheldon Kashuba and his bride Laurel Walker, both from Edmonton, were married at Oasis Edmonton Conference Center with Becky Kowalchuk doing the ceremony. Carver Johnson was one of the four groomsmen attending and the two ring bearers were Corrinna’s son Jack and Shauna’s boy Davin.

The community gathered monetary wishes and sent them with relatives to the happy couple who will be making their home in Edmonton. Best wishes to you both from your friends here at home. Sheldon is the son of Anna Kashuba and the late David Kashuba.

Coming up this weekend, the library is hosting a rummage sale at the Agriplex from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The drop-in will be having a table there and anyone who has anything to donate for sale, please bring it to our table. It’s the same old story “The drop-in needs money”.

Next weekend is the annual “Spring Fling” sponsored by the Ag. Society. This includes supper and a live dessert auction. It’s a fun evening, so plan to attend.

The Rumsey-Rowley 4-H Club are the hosts for this year’s show and sale to be held in Delia, Monday, June 6.

The two ‘Primrose Lane’ signs are no longer visible as they were. Someone took it upon themselves to break them down over the weekend and remove parts. This is very irresponsible and completely unnecessary.
