4 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Opinion Time to get away; a time to reflect and recharge I was so glad to be able to get away from the office for a couple of outings in the country this past week, and both experiences were so well worth it. On Thursday I went out in the countryside 17 kilometres east of Andrew to Emjay’s Prairie Berries to learn more about the local business and all it has to offer, and on Friday I went on a bus tour to the farms and acreages of the 2017 yard beautification winners scattered throughout Lamont County. I was just as thrilled as a kid in a candy store to be able to experience the vast countryside and what nature has to offer during two beautiful summery days. Sometimes breaking away from the normal routine is just what a person needs to recharge the batteries, and these two road trips were just what I needed to lift my spirits. I’ve always enjoyed spontaneity and just being able to hit the open road with no plan or particular destination in mind. Just to be able to have unscheduled time and the time to explore the things I enjoy. It’s that sense of freedom that sets the tone for

adventure. You don’t have to venture too far from home to find interesting places and people. Even though I was born and raised in Alberta there are still so many places to discover, things to do and learn that I don’t think I’ll be able to tick all those boxes off before I kick the bucket. I have never created a bucket list, but I think it is a great idea because you have to be able to take ideas and by writing them down on paper formulate what you want to do, where you want to do it, and when you want to do it. I often say that if you want to do or see something different you have to carve time out of your regular work schedule, normal family time and planned extra curricular activities to try something new. Normally I take most of my holidays in July and August like most people, but this year I pushed it back to the first part of September since my son recently graduated from high school and we wouldn’t have the same school commitments as before. I am looking forward to having no set schedule, and time to be able to do what I want when I want. I just hope there’s

a lake or two involved in there somewhere. This year it’ll be more of a staycation than anything, but getting a break from the everyday will be a welcome change. I don’t know if many people feel this way, but after 10 straight months of work, I mentally and physically need a break. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy what I’m doing, but what it does signal is that a breather is necessary for a person’s health and well being. My Dad always says: “If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.”It’s is so true, and if my parents had waited until they retired after 65 years of age to travel, they would have only had about four years to be able to fit in 20 plus countries they visited since the mid-70’s. My perception and perspective of time has changed a lot since I turned 50. Now, I am seeing many of my aunts and uncles reach the point where they’ve had to sell their farms and homes to receive more care in lodges and long term care facilities. Despite the fact that their advanced ages, physical limitations and mental capabilities have been diminished, their spirit and will to take joy and

pleasure in the everyday is a true testament to their courage and optimism. It takes great optimism and determination to make the most of the ordinary. So often it is tempting to look at the glass half empty rather than the glass half full. I, too, am guilty of that at times. but I often think and look to my Dad, who will be turning 90-yearsold on August 31, for his positive outlook, incredible optimism, strong will, helpful advice and sage wisdom. He too, loves to just go

for a drive and see where the road takes him. That is a bit harder now that he no longer drives, but my brother is great for picking him up for coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner when he’s not working. I wish I could do that more often, but when I do get away for a visit with him I always enjoy our time spent together. I am very fortunate to still have my father in my life, and there isn’t a highway or gravel road I wouldn’t travel with him, and with such a significant

Cliff Bjornson milestone approaching I’m happy to say he’s the best father and mentor I could ever have. Happy 90th birthday Dad! Love, Michelle

This is a screen shot that was found on a recent Facebook post with the question: “Who would fall for that?” While it might seem obvious to many that this is a scam, for others, who may not be as savy, it might be easy to fall into this trap. Best advice would be to share the information with other people.

Capital projects approved Michelle Pinon Editor

Lamont town council met on Tuesday, August 8 for its regular council meeting, and while the meeting was short, council did approve three motions in regards to infrastructure improvements. The largest project that was approved were upgrades to the town’s lift station. Q.Q.R. Mechanical Contracting Ltd.’s bid of $423,098 was accepted. The other two projects

that were approved were improvements to the walking trails, playground and ball diamonds at Hillside Park. Kantrax was awarded the contract for the walking trails which came in at

$91,567. Randall’s Earthworks was secured as the other tender for the ball diamonds and playground upgrades at a cost of $28,500. Funds for that project will be taken out of reserves.

Savour the best berries at Emjay’s Michelle Pinon Editor Emjay’s Prairie Berries owners Judy and Marvin Hrudey recently published a collection of heritage recipes that is dedicated to her mother Helen. Sitting at the kitchen table in their Andrew area home Judy said her mother died way too early, (53-years-old), but is happy to continue her mother’s legacy. In the book’s dedication she states: “Mother left us with a huge collection of recipes that will be cherished and used for generations to come!” Baba Helen Makowichuk was a terrific hostess, but a better cook. In fact, her culinary talents were legendary among her family and friends and one of the most popular recipes was her Graham Wafer Cake that was always requested for family gatherings. “Family always came to the farm,” said Judy. Her mom’s cinnamon

MICHELLE PINON PHOTO

Andrew area producers Marvin and Judy Hrudey hold up the original and completed version of the Heritage Recipe Collection. buns and pickles were also at the top of the list. Judy grew up south of Willingdon, and spent a lot of time in the kitchen as well. Her mom kept her recipes in a three ring binder and included such tasty things like: Alivinch (Romanian Cheese Bread), Homemade Noodles, Beet Horseradish Relish, Cabbage Rolls, Honey Cookies, Hairy Hill Dill Pickles, and so much more! Judy also added her own batch of recipes to the collection, recipes such as: Sour Cherry

Buckle, Haskap Lemon Pound Cake, Saskatoon Crunch, Chokecherry Wine, etc. While Marvin doesn’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen, he is busy in the orchard for months on end with acres of fruit trees. “I like to try different varieties,” said Marvin, who gives guests a personalized tour on his Kubota ATV. He currently has between 12 and 15 varieties of fruit trees and berries. While the Andrew area couple have been in business for around 10 years now, they say 2017 is probably their busiest season yet. The Haskap berry is continually rising in popularity and her expects it will become the Canadian berry sometime during the next generation. He is continually learning and sharing his knowledge and experience as a grower, and added that the exposure during Farmer’s Markets has been great. They bring their boun-

ty to several markets a week, and have added their own Facebook page, which has been a great edition to their marketing efforts. Even though Aline Dubuc had never heard of Emjay’s until last week, she said she will be definitely back. The Lamont resident and her partner Ed Sampson were picking raspberries, and were amazed by the quality of the berries they discovered at the orchard. She loves canning, making jams and pickles, and tries to eat as many fresh and healthy farm fresh products as possible. “Most definitely, I will be back next year,” raved Aline. Those words couldn’t be sweeter, and Judy and Marvin are hoping many people will travel two kilometres east of Andrew and north on Range Road 163 on Sunday, August 20 to enjoy Alberta Open Farm Days at their place. Visitors are welcome to come between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

As children head back to school, it’s important that they are set up for success. You can help by making them an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam.

Volunteers needed for Babas & Borshch Ukrainian Festival Michelle Pinon Editor

“Where’s Lamont?” That was the most asked question Babas & Borshch Ukrainian Festival Co-ordinator Hazel Anaka received during the recent Calgary Ukrainian Festival. “Over and over I explained. I even did a Facebook & Twitter post showing Lamont circled on an Alberta road map,” stated Anaka. “We see Babas & Borshch as an incredible opportunity for the community but we can’t do it alone.” That’s why she is putting out the call for volunteers. “I can’t think of a better way for Lamont (and other) residents to get involved and support this tourism initiative. We are doing all the “heavy lifting” in terms of advertising and promoting the festival in its new location, but to truly be successful there needs to be buy in from the local residents and business community.”

is during the festival because they need to serve guests, performers and participants, and stay on schedule. “Friendly, timely, competent service is what we aim for, and what the county, the town and the festival will be judged on.” Anaka and her core group have four years of experience behind them, but what remains the challenge is figuring out how best to lay out all the activities and attractions so they both serve visitors, vendors, performers and participants, she noted. “The first time is always the hardest! We’re grateful to Colin Peddle and his staff for answering all our questions, (often more than once), offering advice, and generally working hard to make sure the festival site and grounds are in tip top shape.” She went on to say, “We’re also grateful to the Lamont Ag. Society who will be running the bar and beer garden for us. Their can-do attitude

gram months in advance, there are always some changes. Cancelling something is always hard, but it can’t be helped. Luckily, we always have additions too, so maybe it balances out?” For a complete listing of events and activities go to the Babas & Borshch Ukrainian Festival’s website.

With Babas & Borshch Ukrainian Festival less than two weeks away the co-ordinator is putting out the call for volunteers to help make the Lamont edition a success. The two-day event takes place August 26 and 27 at the Lamont Recreation Grounds.

Whether they come, come back, recommend it to friends, create memories, extend their stays, spend money in the community are just some of what’s at stake here.” As to the number of volunteers needed? Anaka said the larger number of volunteers the better. “I don’t think it’s possible to have too many because the more people available, the shorter everyone’s shift is and the more time they have to enjoy the festival.” The most critical part as to when to volunteer

and enthusiastic embracing of the Ukrainian theme will enhance the visitor experience.

Lamont County Division 1 Councillor and Deputy Reeve Dan Warawa presented Elton and Mandy Chmilar with their Beautification Award.

Michelle Pinon Editor

Lamont County’s Agricultural Service Board hosted its annual Beautification Tour on Friday, August 11. The first “hidden gem” was the expansive property of Eddie and Joan Nowicki, adjacent to Highway 16 just west of Range Road 192. Division 2 Councillor and Reeve Wayne Woldanski thanked the couple for opening up their yard and allowing board members and guest to view the work they have done over the years. The Nowicki’s have a quarter section in total and part of that is a four acre parcel where they have their home, outbuildings, a large garden, and a large landscaped yard with 21 different species of trees. “It takes a lot of time and energy to develop and maintain such an attractive yard site, and Ed and Joan take great pride in their work, and we commend them for that,” stated Woldanski. They raised Simmental and Simmental cross cattle for many years and participated in a special wetland project on their property between 1997 and 2000 involving the PFRA, Ducks Unlimited and Lamont County which was surface flow constructed wetland to treat runoff from the winter feeding site for approximately 50 beef cattle. They received a Conservation Award for participating in the project. Next it was off to Trent and Janine Whiting’s place northeast of Lamont. The couple and their two daughters Shaelyn and Jocelyn

moved onto the nine acre property in 2006. Most of the property was bush, and Janine can attest to picking many roots over the years. One particular feature that is the couple’s absolute favourite is their greenhouse they constructed by hand. They carved out several areas for lounging and relaxing as well as a garden plenty of lawn to enjoy in the summer months. “You’ve done an absolutely phenominal job here,” stated Division 5 Councillor Robert Malica before presenting them with their award. After lunch it was time to head over to Allen and Iris Kliachik’s place. Allen’s grandfather immigrated from Hawaii and his grandmother immigrated from Poland. They settled and farmed in the Chipman area. Their son Michael met and married Jennie Zabelski from the Skaro area. They moved to their new home and farmyard in 1945 where they raised their family. Allen farmed with his father and moved to the family farm in 2002 with his wife Iris, daughter Claire and son Robert. Allen is a grain farmer and seeds around 650 acres of land a year. Their yard was very clean and tidy, there was plenty of wide open spaces and beautiful landscaping to enjoy. Allen and Iris have had two close calls with fire and a bad windstorm since they moved there, but feel very fortunate to have been spared from extensive damage and harm to them or their property. Division 3 Councillor Roy Bryks was pleased to honour the couple with the Beautification Award. Next it was on to Don and Tammy Evans, who

were married on the original homestead of Gino Nikolai and Malania. They had five children, one of whom is Lucy, Don’s mom who also lives on the property with her husband Tom Evans. “Donald’s mom and dad (Lucy and Tom), started farming the land in 1973 and did so until 2008. With a strong desire to keep the farm in the family, Donald’s name was added to the title on this farm,” stated Division Four Councillor Roy Anaka who presented Don and Tammy and their daughter Medow with the award. The final stop of the day was at Elton and Mandy Chmilar’s sprawling 10 acre property that was a wedding gift from her father-inlaw. They took the bare land and started building and planting trees in 2009. “We planted 1,200 willows seven years ago,” said Elton. The talented mason and his wife also designed their beautiful home from the ground up and spend lots of time mowing lawn. They have also incorporated fruit tree stands into the landscape, and spend as much time as possible with their seven-year-old son Caleb. Elton, a fourth generation farmer, is also excited to live only a mile south of “Great Grandpa Joe” who settled there in 1899. Division 1 Councillor and Deputy Reeve Dan Warawa presented the award to the couple. All of the properties share a rich history, true to pioneer roots, and they are all happy to be able to live on the same land as their ancestors and continue to enjoy their family’s heritage.

Second annual Andrew Car Show a shining success story

Kulwinder Kundan purchased this former RCMP patrol car during a fleet auction several years ago. This is a photo in its original state.

Kundan had a chance encounter with Cst. M.D. Roberts at the Kitscoty RCMP Detachment, who used to drive the patrol car only two days before the show ʻn shine. Cst. Roberts was so touched he gifted him the original key tag which has the serial number engraved in it as well as 3B95.

MICHELLE PINON PHOTOS

Andrew residents Barbara Engman, Jason Miereau and Douglas Engman couldnʼt take their eyes off this 1955 Bel Air, similar to the one her parents owned when she was a young girl. Called “Porkyʼs Revenge” this classic was one of 82 automobiles who showed up at the Show & Shine on main street Saturday, August 12.

Employment Opportunity Kundan was also fortunate to be able to purchase an original RCMP cap in 2015. Michelle Pinon Editor Kulwinder Kundan was one of about 80 entrants in the second annual Andrew Car Cruisers Show ‘N Shine on Saturday, August 12. Vintage, classic and current models of cars and trucks were on display on main street and the weather couldn’t have been better as it was warm and sunny with a temperature of 24 degrees celsius. Stan and Vicky Norlander were happy for the pleasant weather as it snowed during last year’s event at the Garlic Festival. Organizer George Keddie has spent most of the past year promoting the event and travelling to all corners of the province spreading the news to one and all. Keddie was happy with the amount of entries and turn out of car enthusiasts. Members of the Andrew Lions Club, which hosted a pancake breakfast, were also happy to have served 96 people earlier in the day. Members of the Andrew Fire Department served up scrumptious beef on a bun, and it was nice to see some local vendors on hand to sell their wares.

St. Michael Regional Landfill is accepting applications for a: Ardrossan residents and members of the Alberta Mustang Owners Assoication Stan and Vicky Norlander walked away with some hardware and great memories of the Andrew Show ʻN Shine. The couple displayed their beautiful and classic 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback in a bright custom made colour. The rotissaire rebuild started in 2014 and took about a year and a half to complete.

Andrew Rainbow Club celebrates its 40th anniversary Michelle Pinon Editor

Past and present members of the Andrew Rainbow Club as well as invited guests gathered Saturday, August 12 to celebrate the organization’s 40th anniversary. President Cindy Rusnick welcomed around 100 people to the mid-afternoon gathering before going into a brief history of the club. Even though the club began operating in 1977, the official records only date back to 1989. Rusnick said members had to be 65 years of age to join the

club in the beginning which has now been changed to 50 plus. Currently, there are 20 paid members, and they are hoping more local residents will join. It’s only $5 per year or $50 for a family membership. The club has a total of 41 life members. Elizabeth and George Hrehorets, who were in attendance for the event, enjoy coming for coffee and attending special events, including the monthly perogy supper. Mary Fedun was also in attendance and her late husband Joe’s parents Cassie and Prokop MICHELLE PINON PHOTOS
