LHS Graduating Class 2017 ceremonies Touching, funny, historic, and personal pursuit of dreams

After the ceremonies concluded on Friday evening, the LHS Grad Class 2017 tossed their caps in the air in celebration of their achievements. By KERRY ANDERSON The 65th Graduating Class from Lamont High School had its ceremonial send-off on Friday at a nicely decorated LHS gymnasium before a packed crowd of family, friends, teachers and dignitaries. The ceremony was touching, funny, historic and personal in a way that can only be done in a small town school like Lamont. The graduates in grad robes and caps walked in pairs before a cheering audience from the back of the gym to take their seats of honour on stage. Brittney Lopushinsky and Laine Lysyk were Mistresses of Ceremonies and handled the chore professionally all evening long.

Many words of praise and advice give back to your community.” Lamont Mayor Bill Skinner, were given to the class, beginning with Board of Trustee Colleen Holowaychuk Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hatch and who gave an inspiring and passionate Lamont County Councillor Robert Malica each wished speech. the graduates well in Fort Saskatchetheir future endeavwan-Vegreville MLA This class is ours and all three Jessica Littlewood folsmart, gave heart-felt guidlowed: “Elk Island ance as the class Public Schools does determined and embarks on its future. such a good job growfilled with ideas.

But it makes

sense, “All Walt Disney movies inspire the imagination.” This class is smart, determined and filled with ideas, she added. The Principal then sprung the biggest surprise of the evening on the gathering by bringing a graduate of the very first LHS graduating class up to the front, former long-time Mayor Fred Pewarchuk. She presented him a grad robe and cap, while he surprised her with a sweater from his grad class. Pewarchuk gave a historical account of LHS when he attended and a humorous rundown of prices of goods and traditions of the era, as well as some of the technology which hadn’t yet been invented.

Lamont County Regional Fire Chief among organizers at weekend conference About 200 fire chiefs from across Alberta gathered at the Sheraton Hotel in Red Deer from June 10 to 14 for the 70th annual Conference and Trade Show of the Alberta Fire Chiefs Association (AFCA). “This annual event is extremely important as it provides an opportunity of Alberta’s fire chiefs to learn new skills, share ideas and prepare to better lead their local departments,” says Peter Krich President of the Alberta Fire Chiefs Association and Camrose Fire Chief. “Co-chairs David Zayonce, Regional Fire Chief Lamont County and Brad Straty, Fire Chief County of Two Hills” have developed an exceptional program that will enthuse and motivate our members,” adds Krich. “Their theme

for this year’s conference was Leadership and Building Together.” One of America’s best known fire fighter, instructor, author and speaker, Frank Viscuso, Deputy Chief, Kearny New Jersey, spoke for the first time in Canada. His topic “Step up and Lead” was the focus of several of his keynote addresses. Other speakers included former MLA and author Doug Griffiths, retired Prince Albert Fire Department Chief Les Karpluk and retired Lamont County Regional Fire Chief Randy Siemens. Part of the annual AFCA conference was a Medal Ceremony where commitment and service is recognized. This year 193 medals were presented to outstanding firefighting professionals from throughout

Alberta. Her Honour Lieutenant Governor Lois Mitchell attended both the Opening Ceremonies and Medal Ceremony. Also, joining the official events were Alberta’s Municipal Affairs Minister, Honourable Shaye Anderson. Another highlight of the Conference was the

annual Trade Show where exhibitors present and occasionally demonstrate the newest equipment and technologies for firefighting, emergency response and fire department management. “We also said a fond farewell to our retiring Executive Director Bill Purdy who has helped

us so much over the past ten years. His energy and never-ending commitment to the goals of the AFCA will certainly be missed,” concludes President Krich.

The Alberta Fire Chiefs Association, formed in 1948, is comprised of fire chiefs from 450 fire departments from throughout Alberta.

4 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Opinion Are you or your town "friendly" and/or "welcoming"?

There's a difference I finally had the opportunity to hear former MLA Doug Griffiths' presentation called "13 Ways To Kill Your Community" at the newspapers meetings, AGM, and conference in Calgary recently. I enjoyed the speech, but there was one particular line that really caught my attention, and it is something I had noticed before, but had never differentiated. Mr. Griffiths said: "A person can be friendly, but not welcoming. There's a difference." The same thing can be said about a community. If you recognize people in a store and you say "Hi" or ask them how their day is, there is a very good chance that you are a friendly person. That doesn't mean you are welcoming however, and it is one of the ways Mr. Griffiths says you may be unintentionally helping to kill your community. It's a good point. I have lived in a lot of small communities over the years, and I would have to say every single one of them has been "friendly." But you always hear about people saying some towns or some people can be cliquey. It's understandable. Those people grew up in that small town and they already have their friends. Often whole families are friends. There is little room for inclusion it seems. Goodness, sometimes friendship is more habit than enjoyment. People change but often friends remain the same. So being welcoming along with friendly can be something that is just never really thought about by many people. Welcoming, Mr. Griffiths' says, is when a person might take a different approach. In fact a welcoming person might actually be a less friendly person in some cases, but what makes them welcoming is "inclusion." A welcoming person might recognize someone new at a community function and ask them if they would like to join their group at a table. A welcoming person might make sure their children are including new kids at the school, and are learning to be both friendly and "welcoming" to them. Most long-time residents to a town, many with generational ties, are very good people. Differentiating "friendly" and "welcoming" may to them be just as much of an epiphany as it was to me when Mr. Griffiths warned of the difference. But one thing's for sure, the more people in a community who are welcoming to new residents and visitors will result in more people wanting to live there or visit often. Kerry Anderson

Letters to the Editor Campground doesn’t belong in Hillside Park neighbourhood Dear Editor: What say you? Apparently the town and parks committee are proposing a municipal campground in Hillside Park. Living in the hillside community I really don't think a municipal camp-

ground belongs right in the middle of a neighbourhood.   So many factors bother me: traffic, noise, vandalism, public intoxication, and especially fire. Not to mention the cost to the taxpayer for upkeep and maintenance, and build-

ing in the first place. Doesn't make a lot of sense to spend that money when the town is having a hard time maintaining what they already have ( ball parks, potholes, roads in general, sewers, wages) and I'm wondering what

benefit it is to people (the taxpayer) who live here? So have your say, contact your local town councillors and town office or become a member of the Parks and Recreation committee.  Sylvia McDonald

Letter: Jean needs to be turfed from new provincial Conservatives It’s praiseworthy to unite like-minded conservatives under one political entity. This July both the PC and Wildrose parties will vote to merge into one entity called the United Conservative Party. The proposal, while laudable on its surface, raises some serious questions

about the motives and integrity of the architects of the merger. Among the fundamental principles of conservatism is the basic tenet of limited government. Thus the Wildrose party’s popularity soared on a wave of opposition to the landowner Bills 19, 36,

and 50. Not surprising, the PC party’s popularity correspondingly dropped. What happened? Simply put, those in power stopped listening to Albertans, and concluded that a centralized authoritarian government was preferable to a messy democratic

Crystal Inverarity Ad Sales

process that allowed for local participation. To exacerbate matters the bureaucracy had evolved into a netherworld of nepotistic appointments. Since 2012 the Wildrose has embraced nepotism. Hypocrisy is rampant! Continued on Page 5

EINP has wildlife discussions Michelle Pinon Editor Elk Island National Park (EINP) recently held a series of open houses in Lamont and Edmonton to gather input on sustaining its population of bison, moose, elk and deer in the park. Robyn O’Neill, Partnering, Engagement & Communications Officer at EINP, said 30 people attended the open house in Lamont on May 25, and 200 people attended the open house in Edmonton on June 1. O’Neill said Parks Canada likes to get feedback from the public when it is changing management plans, and said it is always good to be able to get first hand

feedback. The main focus is to ensure a healthy ungulate population, stated O’Neil. During discussions a couple misconceptions came up and were addressed at that time. O’Neill said the two biggest misconceptions; authorizing of hunting within the park as well as disease outbreak in relation to safety. “Visitor safety is our number one priority. If we decide to move forward with hunting there would be perimeters and regulations in place.” She said they will also be taking into account what other parks have done in respect to sustaining their ungulate populations and a healthy ecosystem. The issue of chronic wasting disease was also

raised during discussions, and O’Neill said to date there has been no detection of chronic wasting disease in EINP but the reason it can’t translocate elk presently is because there was a case of chronic wasting disease detected and verified in a deer within 100 kilometres of the park back in 2013. The last translocation of elk from EINP to the Nordegg area took place in February 2012. O’Neill said they are accepting feedback until June 30. After that, a draft plan will be submitted to the national office of Parks Canada, and final plan forthcoming after that. As to how long the process will take altogether, O’Neill said they presently do not know.

Now members are asked to support an agreement that gives absolute authority to Jean’s appointees to approve candidate nominations. The vote in July should be a vote of no confidence on Jean’s leadership, and Marciano’s future with the party. Surrendering grassroots rights for an authoritarian power grab to become what led to the PC party’s demise is a bad start. Jean and his

obsequious MLAs need to be turfed! The PC membership voted on Kenney’s agenda. Jean hid his agenda from the Wildrose membership for two years, thus denying them an opportunity to vote. Like his successor, Jean is sabotaging the party’s sovereignty. Why rush? A no vote resets the clock.

LHS Valedictorian Speech Stephanie Taylor gives composed and rousing send-off for Class of 2017 BY Stephanie Taylor Good evening everyone, and thank you for coming to celebrate Lamont High School’s graduating class of 2017. I am honoured to have the privilege of speaking to you as this year’s valedictorian. On behalf of my peers, I would like to express our appreciation to you, family, friends, teachers and faculty members, for all the support you have given us. I would like to extend a congratulations to everyone sitting behind me. I think that it is important to acknowledge that no two of us took the same path to get here, and yet here we are. Graduation is an accomplishment to be proud of, and I hope that you will all cherish this feeling. We have been extremely fortunate in our opportunity to go to high school, though I know many of us didn’t feel this way the entire time. Education is a privilege that not everyone gets, and we are so lucky. Though we may not feel like what we learned in school is relevant to our futures, it’s not the subject material that is important. We can attribute the development of skills such as problem solving, analyzing, understanding and empathizing to our education. These skills are vital to our transition into adults. They give us the ability to think independently, and are necessary in creating a cooperative society. Entering adulthood, we become the generation with the biggest capacity to change the world. We become trusted with decisions that, unbeknownst to us, will pave not only our future, but the future of humanity. This might seem like way too big of a responsibility, but I believe we should take it as just that; a responsibility. Going forth into these decisions, use your skills as an educated member of society and make a difference. Use your newfound voice and vote informedly. Immerse yourself in the challenges of others around you, and lend a hand. Think innovatively. New problems won’t be solved by old solutions. We are the future of this world, and its up to us to decide its course.

Our time at Lamont High has shaped us into the people we are today. We might feel like who we are, right now, is finite, that we’ve finally grown into the people we are meant to be. The truth is, we haven’t. There is so much room left for us to grow. I don’t believe that life is predetermined by destiny. The future is ma leable, and just as you have changed in the past, you have the power to change in the future. Moving into the next chapter of life will come with its own set of challenges. It’s important you give yourself permission to both succeed, and fail. It’s hard, I can speak from personal experience: I don’t like to fail. But living your life in fear of failure has so many more negatives than positives. It might feel safe, but its draining, and its boring. So, if I promise to dive head first into the future, and to not be afraid to fail, I hope you all will too. So from here, what’s next? Graduating is daunting for all of us, but I believe in every single person on this stage. I know the question, “What do you want to do in life?” is nerve-wracking. And, while I know the connotations of this question imply career choices, I think a more literal interpretation should be made. What DO you want to do in life? Make a list. Go out into the world with drive and passion, and find things that you love to do. It’s an overused cliche, but we really do only have one life to live. When you feel stuck, remember, we are all still learning. That’s what our education has prepared us for; we have been taught how to learn. The word valedictory loosely translates to farewell, so I’d like to say just that. As we head off in our separate directions, I hope that each one of us can look back on our time at Lamont High School with gratitude, and feel prepared for our future. Remember the lessons that have shaped you into the person you are now, and know with certainty that you have always got support, from the people gathered here to celebrate you, from your peers, from me. Thank you.

Entering adulthood, we become the generation with the biggest capacity to change the world. We become trusted with decisions that, unbeknownst to us, will pave not only our future, but the future of humanity. - Stephanie Taylor

From Where I Sit:

Do the Little Things

By Hazel Anaka Living on a farm has its share of blessings and pain-in-the-butt realities. We are largely responsible for our own affairs. If you want potable water, dig a well and run a line into your house. If you want to trade in your coal oil lamp for something with a few more lumens, you need to trench in a power line from the service running in front of your property. If you need natural gas, tie into the local utility company. If you’re old enough to remember landlines and want a ringy dingy telephone of your own, call Telus to connect the line. If you prefer a flush toilet instead of a two-hole outhouse, you’ll need a septic tank and field or pump-out. Each one of those come with price tags in the thousands and thousands of dollars. Hiring a trencher and operator, plumber, electrician, gasfitter, and general contractor. Calling Dial Before You Dig. Putting up with the mess and inconvenience. Eventually, it’s done and you live your forever after country dream life. Until, decades later stuff starts happening. Awhile back our phone line went dead. Not as big a deal as it used to be before cell phones, but a damned nuisance anyway. Turns out a wire broke in the underground cable a few miles

from home. Last fall we noticed that, for no apparent reason, the lights in the house would dim. We put up with it and tried to explain it away. Quite soon, we (okay, I) got scared that the house would burn down because something was obviously wrong. Very wrong and electricity scares me at the best of times. A service man came and tightened something. Problem persists. Second guy repairs the connection at the house. No go. Third guy replaces a breaker at the transformer on the pole in our yard. When I can longer run the oven, do a load of laundry, and make a piece of toast simultaneously, Roy calls again. This time, it seems replacing the transformer with a higher amperage one should be the answer to our prayers. So while we were away from home, the guys replaced the transformer. A disgusting toxic overwhelming smell greeted us when we opened the door of the house. We couldn’t place it. We tried to locate the source. Eventually we figured it out. Guess what? Surge protectors work. It partially melted, looked scorched, and smelled like hell. But the Lenovo laptop, iMac desktop computer, Sony CD player, phone charger, and extra monitor all appear unscathed. Then we discovered a second protector fried. Nothing much plugged into that one. Whoa, close call. The moral of the story is this: we need to do the little things to protect the big things. Otherwise, those investments are in jeopardy through complacency or neglect. Plus you may dodge having to file an insurance claim, from where I sit.

Lamont Laker pride: LHS athletics has special event to celebrate achievements Michelle Pinon Editor The achievements of athletes from Lamont High School (LHS) will be formally recognized the evening of Thursday, June 15. Cory Kokotailo, Director of Athletics & Physical Education at LHS, is very excited about the inaugural event. “We have sponsors for all 58 awards we will be handing out. Winners get their name on an annual trophy that will remain in the trophy case for years to come.” Awards will be presented to junior and senior high student athletes. “We have Most Valuable Players, Most Improved Players, a heart and hustle dedication award for all volleyball and basketball; top player awards for badminton, curling, track, cross country and golf; top academic athletes and male and

female athletes of the year,” stated Kokotailo. Even though the students have heard a bit about the awards, Kokotailo believes they won’t be ready for the full event or imagine how great it is going to be. “We are planning many events that night to really make this first ceremony and the year of athletics a very memorable event.” He went on to say, “Athletics is an important part of our school community as is academics. Separating the athletics awards brings more attention to the program, to the student athletes, and allows us to recognize those students who are excelling in athletics. The ability to get all our athletes into one event, recognize their achievements, individually and as teams, will hopefully build enthusiasm for what we’re building, increase expo-

sure to the community and give all student athletes that feeling of pride for what has been accomplished.” Kokotailo is also of the mind set: “If they build it, they will come.” He pointed out that many of the high school athletes are pioneers, at the beginning or rebirth of athletic programs like men’s volleyball, women’s basketball, curling and cross country. “With their leader-

ship and youthful push, the program, this awards night and the support we receive from the school and the community, the future looks bright for the Lamont High Lakers Athletics Program.” Right now there is “great enthusiasm” around athletics, noted Kokotailo, with “buy in” from younger grades and hopes that the future brings some exposure for our program and around the province.

Lamont County students enjoy Farm Safety Day Almost 600 students were bussed from across Lamont County on Friday for Lamont County’s Farm Safety Day at the Lamont Ag. Grounds. The students were from Grades Kindergarten to 9, and enjoyed a full day of demonstrations, fun and learning about farm safety. Lamont County supplied lunch bags

for the huge gathering of children, prepared by the St. Michael Ag. Society. Some 700 lunches were prepared, starting Thursday evening at St. Michael Hall when the Ag. Society volunteers washed and cut fruit and vegetables for six hours. “There were 14 of us washing, cutting and drying including some FCSS

Melissa Shiach and Cindy Wendorff, FCSS volunteers, helped put together the lunches.

volunteers who helped,” said St. Michael Ag. volunteer Mae Adamyk. Friday morning at the hall, a gathering of around a dozen began making the sandwiches and putting everything together in the 700 lunch bags paid for by Lamont County. “Bags had a healthy lunch of a sandwich, juice box , a treat, veggies. fruit

and a napkin,” said Adamyk. Volunteers in five SUVs, stuffed full of freshly prepared lunches, left the St. Michael Hall late Friday morning for the short trip to the Lamont Ag. Grounds. Children worked up an big appetite on the drizzly chilly day, and lined up to receive their lunch.

Hundreds of school children enjoyed the day despite chilly weather.

St. Michael volunteers are; (back row L – R) Tom Adamyk, Allen Borys, Albert Stelmach, (Front Row) Marie Stelmach, Joan Borys, Emily Kostiuk, Florence Stelmach, Mae Adamyk and Cindy Wendorff.

Mundare School students have own community garden Students at Mundare School are getting their hands dirty and learning about the benefits of growing local. Recently, students at the school planted various types of seeds to grow a community garden. “Every year, the Grade 4 class plants a

garden offsite,” says Dalton, a Grade 8 student at Mundare School. “So, to have one here at the school is exciting for all of us. I’m not sure I’m going to like everything we’ve planted but I’ll try it all.” For years the school

has wanted its own onsite community garden but hasn’t had the proper boxes to grow produce in. That’s all changed thanks to students enrolled in Vegreville Composite High’s Career and Technology (CTS) con-

Mundare School students check out their community garden, with boxes built by Vegreville Composite High School.

PUBLIC MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

LAMONT COUNTY – ALBERTA’S INDUSTRIAL HEARTLAND AREA STRUCTURE PLAN (ASP) UPDATE Date: Thursday, June 29, 2017 Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm Location: Lamont Meeting Room, Lamont Arena, 4844 - 48 Avenue, Lamont

JOIN US FOR PUBLIC MEETING 3

This meeting will include a presentation at 6:00 PM to outline the draft preferred concept for the revised Area Structure Plan (ASP). You will also have an opportunity to provide feedback and questions through discussion with representatives from the County and Stantec.

struction program, who recently built two garden boxes for the school. “When we heard Mundare School wanted to grow a community garden it just made sense to have our students build garden boxes for them,” says Joseph Clark, the director of Learning Services at Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS). “Not only is it cost effective it also offers our students valuable learning opportunities—new skills, high school credits and community building.” The garden boxes are being cared for by leadership students at Mundare School, made up of more than 40 individuals in grades 7 and 8. All the produce harvested—radishes, lettuce, cilantro, dill, chives, sage, peppermint, basil and tarragon—will then

be distributed throughout the school community. Next year, students plan to plant even more produce including squash, carrots, beans, garlic and strawberries— ingredients needed for a balanced, nutritional plate. “The garden will complement what students are learning in class through a hands-on learning approach to gardening,” says Liane Schultz, the principal of Mundare School.

“Ultimately, we want to foster a lifelong appreciation for local healthy food by teaching our learners about the food they eat, where it comes from and the resources required to grow it— skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.” Involved in the project are EIPS, Vegreville Composite High and Mundare-based Darvonda Nurseries Ltd.

The reply from the teachers was pretty hilarious thanks to teachers Bryan Dussault and Allan Hope (right).

The guest speaker chosen by the Grad Class of 2017 was Alison Theissen, a world class curler who has played on the international stage for Canada. “My most proud achievement was as skip of the LHS curling team which won Provincials in 2010.” Theissen said teachers influence grads more than even they realize. She said it was LHS teachers which encouraged her to follow her curling dreams and ambitions. “Curling has brought me so many opportunities,” she said. But Theissen also said the students must not only be ambitious but also overcome obstacles and never give up. She told a story of her most crushing curling disappointment and how down the whole team was on themselves. However, she said when she got back home she was welcomed by her family who simply said how proud they were of her. She said the class will need to work hard, believe in themselves and develop a good support group of family and friends. “I can’t wait to see what great things you all accomplish.” Valedictorian Stephanie Taylor left little doubt as to why she was chosen for this honour to represent the class, giving an almost perfect address. “Entering adulthood, we become the generation with the biggest capacity to change the world,” she said. “We become trusted with decisions that, unbeknownst to us, will pave not only our future, but the future of humanity. “I believe in every single person on this stage,” said the Valedictorian. Don’t be afraid to fail, she stated. Remember we’re all yet learning. “That’s what our education has prepared us for.” Kaylee Connors gave the tribute to the teachers, which was replied to by teachers Allan Hope and Bryan Dussault. The teachers gave a humorous account of their dealings with the Class of 2017 through the years and even handed out special comedic tributes to some select students. Luke Farrell, Ainsley Lopushinsky and Nicholas Ridland, Co-Class-Presidents gave a heart felt thank you to teachers, parents and students. “We finally made it.” Asha Ram was presented with a thank you for organizing the event, and then each student was brought forward and presented their individual graduation certificates by Curtis Starko; and a rose from Principal McLean who slid their cap tassels to the left side of their caps representing a high school graduate. Each student wrote a summation of their schooling and gave multiple thanks to parents, teachers and fellow students who helped them along the way. The personal accounts were read by Ms. Ram flawlessly. Proud parents in the crowd could be seen choking up as their son or daughter was announced. Before the ceremonies concluded the class tossed their caps in the air on stage in celebration, and then filed out to a luncheon meet and greet. On Saturday photos were taken followed by a banquet and dance at the community hall.

Grads on stage get ready for the celebrations.

Kaylee Connors gave the tribute to the teachers.

Valedictorian Stephanie Taylor address the crowd on behalf of the Class of 2017.

Teacher Bryan Dussault got a huge laugh when he presented Jacques Pinon with a turkey wrap, fearing itʼs the longest heʼd ever seen the grad without pulling something out to eat.

LHS grad Braydon Berezanski and escort are introduced to the crowd gathered in the community hall for the graduation banquet (supper).

Author to visit local libraries Michelle Pinon Editor Shari Narine had this idea rattling around in her head. She wanted to try something different, something she couldn’t do as a working journalist. “I joke that I wanted to embellish, but figured doing so in the newspaper articles I wrote would only get me in trouble so I decided to write fiction.” Now Narine will be sharing passages and some insights into her newly published novel Oil Change at Rath’s Garage at the Lamont Public Library on Monday, June 19 at 1 p.m. “This is a story of quiet, desperate hope, the fulfillment of which depends upon altering fate, adjusting to change,

and transforming one’s spirit.” Those words form part of a synopsis of the novel which hit the shelves in May, and which is also available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. N a r i n e explains, “The story is about how untidy and difficult life can be told through the interactions of 2 families: the Humphreys, Shari which consists of a father and his two sons, and the Rutgers, father, mother and three daughters. The Humphreys are always on the move as dad Jack tries to run away from his grief. They end up in the fictional Alberta town of Delwood, where they meet up with the town born and bred

Rutgers. Their lives examine man's capacity to change.” Between June 19 and 28, Narine will be visiting 17 libraries. Besides Lamont, Narine is scheduled to appear at the Mundare P u b l i c Library on June 27 at 12 Noon. The recently published author says it is exciting and Narine satisfying to have written a novel and is looking forward to her upcoming tour. Narine has traveled through Lamont, but never stopped in, and is excited she’ll have a couple of pit stops during her whirlwind tour, and everyone is encouraged to attend.

20 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Cenovus Energy gives $5,000 to Lamont Library Company will be introducing library mascot “Rosie” who will live in library tree Cenovus is marking Canada’s 150th anniversary by giving $5,000 to all libraries in operating communities, including the Lamont Public Library. “We chose libraries because it aligns with our strategy of supporting learning, and also our history of investing in literacy. We also recognize the tie to history, as well as the importance of a library as a community hub, and the different services that are offered and accessible to all different demographics that will help serve the community through the next 150 years,” said a company news release. “The parameters around the donation are that we want the library to use the funds for something tangible, something that will last for the next 150 years as opposed to program or operating funding. Though we know those are both extremely important, the reason is we want the donation to contribute to a 150 legacy for the library; maybe its new resources, technology, an upgrade to a physical space like a reading corner etc. “So the board decided the money was going to go towards new furniture for the children’s section, to create the tree in the library, a mascot, and what was left over would be put into purchasing laptops for the library. We look forward to introducing our new library mascot. A hint for everyone her name is Rosie we are looking at introducing her as Reading with Rosie… she will live in our tree in the library. This decision was made to honor our former librarian Rose Konsorada who devoted many years to the library and the community of Lamont.”

Huge group photo of the participants and organizers of the Meteorite Cup, a street hockey tournament held in Bruderheim on Saturday.

Great competition and great fun, the perfect mix for Bruderheim street hockey tournament KERRY ANDERSON It was another great success for the Meteorite Cup in Bruderheim, filled with competitive street hockey and family fun on Saturday. The third annual Meteorite Cup street hockey tournament drew seven competitive and skilled teams this year, playing hard inside the arena due to rainy weather. “Every year it seems to rain,” said Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch, who said all funds from this year’s tourney will go towards a skate board park. A Fort Saskatchewan

team from GFL proved to bring the most skill to the event, downing the Dekes of Hazard 7-6 in the final. “You could tell that a lot of those guys had played some high level hockey,” said the Mayor. Medals were handed out to each member of the winning team, as the Meteorite Cup seems to alway be able to attract great sponsors. Hauch said a very important element to the tourney is the participation of the Maschmeyer family. “Thirty little kids played against the Maschmeyer clan,” said

Mayor Hauch. “For the little kids that was a thrill to shoot against players of that quality. Emerance Maschmeyer and Genevieve Lacasse, Canadian National Women’s Team goalies were there; along with Brittaney Maschmeyer from the U22 Hockey Canada Team, Bronson Maschmeyer from DEL Bremerhaven, Brock Maschmeyer from the Northern Michigan University hockey team, as well as Seyara Shwetz from Saint Mary’s University team, and Kanesa Shwetz from the U of A Pandas.

“It’s nice to see the family come home and help us out and give the kids some fun,” said Hauch. Little kids were taking shots, and playing against these top level athletes. “It was pretty exciting for them.” Parents were taking pictures. Players and spectators were enjoying the beer gardens and Bruderheim Minor Sports even had a bake sale during the day. Fort Saskatchewan provided a mascot as did the RCMP. “It was a fun day.”

The competition was fast and furious, with fans having the opportunity to see some great hockey skills from players who have played high level hockey over the years. The Meteorite Cup was won by the GFL team downing the Dekes of Hazard. Funds raised on Saturday will go towards a skate board park in Bruderheim. Below Fort Saskatchewan mascot Auggie the sheep entertained the children and did a little babysitting of young Ryker Purdy while at the street hockey tournament in Bruderheim.
