There isn’t a lot of news this week except the tales about the terrible snow storm on Thursday, April 7. Among the tales are the story of Ken Goddard coming home from Red Deer in the early evening. The normal travelling time is about one and a half hours depending on speed but that night it took over three hours with travelling speed of 15 km. per hour at times. Many other folks have similar stories to tell, I’m sure.
Congratulations to Betty Primrose, who celebrated her birthday with a party at the agriplex on Saturday night. There seems to be a lot of 50-year-olds this year. Maybe it’s because our son became that age last November and it’s easier to remember. Tim turned 50 in early December and so did Tony Deering. That’s just to name a few.
Stella Sengaus celebrated her 80th birthday with friends gathering in the common room at her new home in Three Hills. Donna baked a delicious cake for all to enjoy and a great time was had by all.
There are several folks turning 80 around this time. Helen Weiland of Lethbridge, formerly of Rumsey and Trochu celebrated hers in February. The formal party will held on July 17 in Lethbridge.
It is nice to be able to report that John Griffith is now home from Red Deer hospital with his new knee. Walking will be much easier now, eh John?
Had a chat with Jean Richmond today and she is doing well at home with her new knee.
Give me a call and let me know what you did over the Easter holidays. We had our great niece, Sierra Morse of Sylvan Lake staying with us for a few days. Young legs and quick hands helped out with some spring cleaning.
