Happy Victoria Day!


May 16, 2014. Welcome to a long weekend unless you’re one of the people who has to work. Bring along Queen Victoria party favors to make the day go by faster. (I have no idea what a Queen Victoria party favor is.)

Lots of things on Scene & Heard today: Curtis Goodman reminds everyone that the registration deadline is coming up for the 45th edition of the Southern Alberta Summer Games. They’re happening in Pincher Creek and is open to everyone. And you don’t have to be athletic. There is even a cribbage cateqory. (Although I’ve heard that can get violent at times.)

Michelle and Peter Etches are organizing the Hear Forever family fun run, concert & outdoor market in support of hearing health. The run is down at Indian Battle Park and the outdoor market and concert goes at Galt Gardens. It all happens on Monday rain or shine. But it never rains on Victoria Day. (insert sarcastic remark here)

The Habitat For Humanity Golf tournament has been away for a few years but it’s back again. It happens Thursday June 19 at Henderson Lake Golf Course and is sponsored by Sutton. It’ll cost you $185 with all proceeds going to Habitat For Humanity. There’s a build going on right now on the West Side. Stop by Sutton at 1010-3 Ave. S. or call them at 403-320-6411.

Agnes Davidson school is going to have a big garage sale next weekend to help renovate their kitchen. As is the case with most schools when there’s something that has to be fixed, you have to fundraise. That’s the case here. As organizer Lisa Weiss says, they’re not looking for marble countertops they’re just looking to make their kitchen functional again. You can e-mail her at for more information.

If you’re expecting, Welcome Wagon has a special trade show coming up at the Sandman Inn next week. Salina Urlickson has the deets tonight on Scene & Heard.
