Suspenders in fashion for double-birthday celebration

It was an oversight on my part not to say that several Rumsey folks attended the birthday celebrations for Vaughn Gliesier

It was an oversight on my part not to say that several Rumsey folks attended the birthday celebrations for Vaughn Gliesier of Hardisty on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Newcastle hall.

Their family had a party to celebrate Vaughn’s 75th birthday, but also to celebrate their mom Ella’s birthday, which was Sept. 25.

It was really neat, as Vaughn occasionally wears suspenders — loud and colourful ones — and so most of his family had the same dress code for the party.

A couple of dates that you might want to mark on the calendar — the Big Valley craft sale is set for Saturday, Nov. 17, and the Munson fall supper is Thursday, Oct. 25.

In a recent newsletter from STARS, it was noted that at the Rumsey Ride for STARS last Aug. 12, the merchandise that was sold that day generated more than $1,400. That was really good and appreciated by the STARS foundation.

A gentle reminder that Sharon’s father’s funeral will be held this Saturday, Oct. 13, for anyone who plans on attending. It will be held at 2 p.m. in Sherwood Park at the Glenwood Memorial Gardens. If anyone needs the address, give me a call.

The news is short and sweet this week, as it is a short week because of Monday’s holiday.

It is our hope that everyone enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends around.

We had exciting plans at our house, with all of our family planning to return home, plus our dear friend, Wendell Ebbett from Sunset House.

Elgin Lifeso’s funeral is set for this Saturday, Oct.13.
