Ghost Pine News - May 13, 2015

Mother's Day weekend has just passed. We hope all the Moms were well remembered. Don't you think this celebration should last all year?
Just a reminder, the Three Hills History Book Committee has started working on "A Town On The Move". Volume Two. They need your help to make this edition complete. Look for the flyer in The Capital, for all the details.
Here are the results of our very enthusiastic Whist players. On April 30 "Fiddlers On The Roof" were Pearl Hansen, Bette Sitler, Marlene Luijkx and Jim Sailer. Those drumming in the basement were Mic King, Mel Hansen, Art Luijkx and John Wytenbroek.
On May 7, they played again. Those enjoying the sunshine were Jim Sailer, Mic King, Edna Cary and Bernice Huxley. Those who had to use umbrellas were Art Luijkx, Bill Martin, Marie Olmstead and Bette Sitler.

The Mother's Day weekend was a special time for Dianne Leaf. Rik Leaf had a three hour wait in the Calgary airport between flights on Saturday; so daughter, Julie, picked Dianne up and they enjoyed breakfast together in Airdrie. On Sunday, Julie's family gathered to celebrate mom and grandma with a delicious brunch at Julie's condo. Ron and Bonnie Leaf, from Rocky Mountain House, also joined the Sunday morning brunch.
Ghost Pine's population grew by one on April 28 with the arrival of Ashtyn Kate to David and Lori Webb's household. Big sisters Jordyn and Kelsie are very happy with their new sister, as are grandma and grandpa Harold and Jan, Auntie Cara and Daryn. Ashtyn weighed 9 lbs 12 oz, 22" long and was born in Drumheller. On Mothers Day, everyone along with great Grandma Evelyn King, and Daryn's parents Bonnie and Rene Hebert and sister Jaylin gathered at the Bell restaurant for dinner. The Webb's and King's were also celebrating finishing up seeding that day.
Andy and Irene Nakaska attended the baptism of their great-grandson Oskar Prescott at St. Bonaventure Church in Calgary on Sunday. Family and friends gathered at the home of Brianna and John Prescott after for a luncheon and visiting.
Celebrating Mother's Day and a birthday, Jackie Ruby was spoiled over the weekend by most of her children who came from Black Diamond, Calgary, Huxley, Trochu and Three Hills. She had phone calls, dinners out and many bouquets of flowers and other treats. How blessed she was!
