Rumsey Record

Don’t forget about the Rumsey Sports Days to be held on July 19, 20 and 21.

Don’t forget about the Rumsey Sports Days to be held on July 19, 20 and 21.

Derek Krywcun and Doug Hodge will be taking entries for the tournament, so if you are interested in getting a team in, phone them early as it usually fills up quickly. There is lots to look forward to: the concession will be running as usual, with the proceeds going towards Morrin Grad Class of 2014; beer gardens down by the diamonds, free camping, supper on Saturday night served up by the Country Cookers, with a dance to follow.

Team entries include admission to the dance — for everyone else, it’s $5.

Pancake breakfasts are on tap both mornings to get you going and, of course, there’s lots of ball games to watch. Hope to see you there!

Ernie Goddard once again attended the Ponoka Stampede, which is an annual event for him. This year, he was accompanied by his sister, and we presume it was as exciting and enjoyable as it always has been!

We have received a report that one of our newest residents, Vel Longman, located on the old Deering place, has been having serious heart problems and has even been sent to Red Deer. We wish her well and hope for a complete recovery!

Rowley has been a busy place lately as the Amateur Dog Trial folks took over the place for five days. There were a lot of them and they enjoyed the facilities and the warm welcome to their group.

The Drumheller Canada Day Parade was very well-attended and local folks enjoyed it immensely! Even people from Fort McMurray attend this event every year, namely, Jeremy, Nancy and Simon Foesier, along with Julie and Jayden from Nanton, joined with their Drumheller hosts, the Guidololins, to watch the panorama passing by.

Rowley is planning its 100-plus birthday party on July 27, as well as hosting Pizza Night. Free face-painting for the kids throughout the afternoon. And 100 pieces of birthday cake will be cut at 4 p.m. There will be continuous music as we are planning an indoor band and an outdoor band. Hotdogs will also be available.

A little info on three local communities: Rowley, Rumsey and Craigmyle were never incorporated, so there isn’t any way to actually say when they started. The history book is the source that says Rowley had a store in 1911, changed hands in 1912 and 1913, so that is why we are saying 100-plus for the celebration!

Two more visitors in Rowley for this week are Teasha and McAyla Foesier, from Calgary, out for a vacation and sharing time with Auntie Jamie and Chris.

A gentle reminder: The STARS ride will be coming up in August and we hope everyone will exhibit their usual generosity when asked for sponsorship of the participants.
