Haven’t we had some lovely warm days? It makes you want to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

Gayle Parker and Grace Reed were in Olds last Thursday evening to attend the University of Alberta Mixed Chorus and the Faculty of Education Handbell Ringers. Both were conducted by Dr. Robert de Frece. Some of you will remember Bob when he lived with his parents here in Three Hills.
