Visitors enjoyed central Alberta museums

Haying is in full swing, with a bit of a break for a much needed inch plus of rain on Friday.

Haying is in full swing, with a bit of a break for a much needed inch plus of rain on Friday. The wind did minimal damage in the area.

Joe Hansel was first place winner at the Heritage Place cribbage tournament last week. Max Ginther came in second and the booby prize went to Jim Hoover. Everyone is welcome to join the card players this Thursday, July 31 at 1:30 pm. The rumor has it that there is a lot of fun going on there.

Percy and Paulette Heer have enjoyed a week of visiting with friends from North Platte, Nebraska – Clyde and Alice King, Sheyanne and Marissa. While here, they toured the Tyrell Paleontology Museum in Drumheller, along with Reptile World (where Sheyanne and Marissa got to hold one of the snakes), as well as the Valley Doll Museum.

A must on the way home with a quick stop at the Jimmy Jock Boardwalk in Big Valley where they enjoyed the Art Gallery and Granny’s Fudge Shop.

While driving around the country side on Saturday, Clyde and Percy spotted four buck elk south of Gadsby, near Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren’s farm.

Donna McKay, along with six ladies (all Heartland Belles) drove to Drumheller last Wednesday for a picnic in the Park. Other Red Hat groups were there for the day, with five “Queens” (leaders) present. Happy Birthday to Donna, who has the honor of wearing the purple hat for the month of July.

On Saturday, Donna and Lexie drove to Camrose where Lexie took part in the Augustana Campus (U of A) workshop, guided tour and course registration for the coming year.

We wish Lexie great things for the year. Meanwhile Donna visited her Aunt Bunny, Alice Lewis, in Rose Haven in Camrose.
