Trochu News August 11, 2010

Usually one goes to the library to borrow books, but this month is different at the Trochu Library. Thanks to Arts Alive In Kneehill and Librarian Sheri Campbell, quilting by Shirl's Girls is on display for the month of August during library hours. Articles are well displayed from small ones like soft books for young children, to runners for coffee tables and of course, quilts for beds. You'll have to stop in and see for yourself. Perhaps you'll find a book to borrow or use a computer to vote for Troy Niemi.
Did you know that a new tree sculpture has been done at the Arboretum? This is the second one done by Darren Jones of Rimbey and adds another item of interest on your next visit to the facility. You can check it out at the next Farmer's Market day August 12.
Congratulations to Brian and Amanda Newton on the birth of Aston Layne Wynford at the Olds Hospital on July 21. Aston weighed in at 7 lbs. 4 ozs. and is the grandson of Trevor and Mary Newton and Robert and Laurie Painter. Lucky Aston has great-grandmas Laura Pennock and Elsie Painter to help spoil him.
Winners of the Trochu Elks 200 Club for the month of July are Marlene Reddikopp, Bruce Guard,  Michelle Wagstaff, Mary Newton and Nill Hengen.
Visitors to the Trochu Drop In have been enjoying a few free coffees and cake lately as July birthday people Ed and Phyllis Henkel and Jim Deering did the honours collectively and then Phil and Ilona Noble treated guests as they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Best wishes and thanks to all these folk.
The Trochu Museum is waiting for your list of ten most influential citizens past or present. Since 2001 is the community's 100th Anniversary year, input is important. A hundred people will be selected from these lists and you can make more than one list. Get your selection in as the committee may have a difficult time choosing the final hundred.
