Memories evoked at museum Michelle Pinon Editor Local historian Harvey Spak talked animatedly about some of the posters on display at the Basilian Fathers Museum during a visit last Wednesday afternoon. Pointing to the Mundare Stampede poster he recalls his mother talking about the airplane ride she had at the event which was held on July 7, 1936. We move over to the Green the Magician poster. “I saw this man perform in Two Hills,” says Spak, who says it must have been in 1954 or 1955. ”It was said that he was from Mundare, and I was totally fascinated by this guy.” Spak also recalls volunteering to put his finger in the French hand guillotine which appeared to cut it

off. He was definitely relieved when he left the stage with his finger fully intact. “Although no self respecting Ukrainian woman would volunteer to be cut in half,” he said with a smile. He also remembered how Green the Magician berated the crowd for not volunteering to be sawed in half. “I thought that was extraordinary.” Museum Curator Karen Lemiski said there are a total of 30 community posters, plus related items, such as an autographed portrait of Prince Danylo Skoropadsky, entrance tickets, and a letter related to the distribution of a movie. The collection also includes local business calendars, cultural performances, religious congresses, Ukrainian language movies, politi-

cal rallies, etc. While immigration is a standard display topic for museums, highlighted by arrival narratives and cultural artifacts, Lemiski says this exhibit focuses on the next phase and next generation which is also an important topic. Lemiski said she compiled the exhibit to mark the 125th anniversary of the Ukrainian settlement in Canada. “The goal was to show that within a few decades after immigration, there was a thriving cultural life within both the Ukrainian ethnic community as well as in the local towns of Lamont County and other centers with large Ukrainian populations such as Edmonton and Winnipeg.” What Lemiski found most interesting while researching for the display was the range of events and rallies in the local halls, from movies to the fundraising, but also the caliber of performances and artists. Also, when researching the movies, it was interesting to see the development of the Ukrainian film industry.” Several of those special event posters were printed and published by the Basilian Fathers who operated a printing press in Mundare from 1938 to 1949. “In August 1936, the Basilian Fathers fulfilled their long desired dream of opening their

own press in Mundare with the publication of “Is There A God?” a pamphlet written by future bishop Fr. Neil Savaryn, OSBM. After printing a number of

occasional papers and booklets, in 1938 the Basilians also introduced Svitlo (The Light), a religious publication issued twice a month until 1949. It then moved to Toronto

where it was produced until 2016.” The exhibit was opened this past summer and will be on display until the spring of 2018.

Lamont Elementary students treat seniors

By Taylor Fossum and Jolene Derksen Happy Halloween Lamont! This is Jolene and Taylor reporting from Lamont Elementary School. On Tuesday, October 31, Lamont Elementary

celebrated Halloween with an afternoon of special activities. The parties began with a special lunch of pizza buns, vegetables, fruit kebobs with marshmallows and popcorn. After lunch the students got changed into their costumes and had a costume parade through the school. There were some very unique costumes, like a lot of zombies, movie characters, and funny costumes. Mr. Robertson, our vice principal, dressed up as a basket-

ball player with stilts. Every year the Grades K-3 go to Beaverhill Lodge and the Auxiliary Hospital to sing Halloween songs and visit with the seniors. This year the Kindergarten and Grade 1 sang “This Old Ghost”, “Trick or Treat” and “Haunted House”. The Grade 1 and 2 students sang “Pumpkin Bells”, “Halloween Party” and “Monsters are so Loud”. When asked how long LES students have been singing to the seniors, Mrs. Malica, our Grade 2

teacher replied, “We have been singing to the seniors on Halloween for more than 20 years. We like to spread some Halloween cheer!” Some seniors wore funny hats so they could join in the fun of wearing costumes. Later in the afternoon students carved pumpkins, had Halloween themed centres, made Halloween crafts, played Halloween BINGO, and Hot Witches Broom, and watched movies. We hope everyone had a ‘fang’tastic Halloween!

Mundare town council hosts annual organizational meeting Michelle Pinon Editor

Mike Saric looked right at home in council chambers during the Town of Mundare organizational meeting on Monday, October 30. Saric said it was nice to be back in the chair he previously held. “Over the last year or so I started thinking about getting involved again. As the nomination day drew closer I was surprised by the number of people that were encouraging me to run again, so I put my name forward.” At the organizational meeting Saric proposed

Chief Administrative Officer Colin Zyla, left, asks Mayor Mike Saric to repeat the oath of office. council start this new term with a round of public consultations in an effort to determine what the citizens’ priorities are. He pointed out that over the last four years the town has had two “very promising” proposals for development, but in both cases “a considerable number of residents” opposed the location of the proposed business because of its proximity to Mundare School. “Clearly there is potential for highway commercial growth in town but we don’t currently have a viable alternative property that will satisfy both potential business owners and our citizens. To me, that is a clear indication that we need to make other space available that can work. That may mean annexation of some land or the acquisition of land but we need to have the discussion. We will also be reviewing our incentive to see if there is something different that we can do to help attract new business and encourage growth within the existing business community. “ Saric also feels they

need to do more to better position itself for future growth and development, and need to do a better job of planning for the town’s infrastructure needs. “We need to be prepared for opportunities and that begins with identifying our short and long term needs and goals and then having plans in place to achieve them and some tangible way measuring how we are doing.”

Andrew council holds special meeting Michelle Pinon Editor The Village of Andrew held a special meeting on Wednesday, November 1. Mayor Gary Leppek called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. Deputy Mayor Sheila Lupul requested that delegations, business arising from the minutes, minutes of the Oct. 11 regular council meeting and the Oct. 30 organizational meeting, bylaw, accounts payable, committee reports, correspondence, and councillor comments and questions be omitted from the agenda. Council agreed to the request, and proceeded to item eight, new business. The Peace Officer Agreement was briefly discussed. It was pointed out that the current agreement expires on January 1, 2018. Deputy Mayor Sheila Lupul asked if there was a report on the annual revenue. Chief Administrative Officer Pat Skoreyko said no. Lupul suggested they table the item until they get a cost comparison of revenue and expenditures, and council voted in favour of tabling the item. CAO Skoreyko stated that the new Modernized Municipal Government Act was passed on October 26, and she has ordered copies for each councillor. She added that some changes would have to be implemented within nine months and some things would not have to be implemented until two years, but would keep them apprised of those changes. The website contact was discussed. Skoreyko explained they have all the information and passwords so they can get onto it, but they will have to either hire the services of a contractor or enlist the services of a volunteer to update its information. “It (the service) was strictly voluntary up to this point. I’m not sure what it could cost,” stated Skoreyko, but she could look into that and report back to council. That

item was then tabled. Deputy Mayor Lupul asked to have the agendas and the minutes of meetings posted on the website as well. Council was brought up to date regarding the demolition of the arena addition by K o r o l u k Construction. “The final inspection was completed yesterday,” reported Skoreyko.

Opinion The Poppy

From Where I Sit: Been There, Done That

The blood red poppy is a symbol And wearing it is the way we tell That we’ll ever remember the fallen It’s how we mourn the ones who fell Those who fought for our freedom Who are not among the living today But are now resting in many countries They sacrificed their lives in the fray Poppies grow in the fields of Flanders Creating a vivid flowery carpet of red Growing among the white cross markers Bearing the names of the valiant dead Red as their lifeblood shed in battle Poppies are a memorial tribute that we Wear to show that we’ll always remember Those who shed their blood to keep us free This is the way we show our appreciation That for their supreme sacrifice we care A demonstration that we remember them By the symbolic blood red poppy we wear

George (Ole) Olson October 3, 2002.

By Hazel Anaka This summer for the first time in forty‐two years I attended Edmonton’s Heritage Festival. In the past I con‐ sidered and then dis‐ missed the idea of going. It’s so big, it’s so far, it’s so hard to get to where the worrying deterrents. It’ll probably be too hot. Or it might pour. There’s a lot to see and miles to walk; what if the comforts of shade and tables and toi‐ lets were nowhere to be found. But when I found the festival’s little travel guide inserted into the Edmonton Sun it felt more real. The map didn’t look that daunting. It was pos‐

sible to buy food tickets ahead of time. But the clincher was that Hilary agreed to go with me. For affairs like this I rely on her to drive or orchestrate the logistics. The festival runs three days and is a strict no car zone. So we parked as close as we could (outside the Tag & Tow residential areas) and ordered an Uber. Let me just say, the traffic is a freaking gong show. With policemen directing traffic, bumper to bumper park and ride buses, plus normal Sunday traffic, it felt like a parking lot. Eventually we got there. Roy sug‐ gested a cheque payable to the Edmonton Food Bank would be a lot easier than toting a bag of canned and boxed goods. Smart guy. Before leaving home, I’d printed off the menu that itemizes each pavilion’s food offerings and num‐ ber of coupons required. With seventy countries offering over 500 food and drink items, each

coupon being worth a dol‐ lar, and some incredibly long lineups some pre‐ planning made sense. As it was, two of us used sixty dollars worth of coupons! That unbeliev‐ able amount is more a function of price and less of big eaters. An onion cake, five bucks. Four slices of watermelon, five bucks. A heavy fruit‐filled bun from Russia, five bucks. Four spring rolls, five bucks. Three Mexican Tacos de Cochinta, twelve bucks. It all adds up. The grounds were muddy from the previous night’s rain and hailstorm. But there were tables to sit at and dance perform‐ ances to watch. There was shopping to do if your tastes run to clothing, jewelry, souvenir type objects. Everything I saw seemed either over‐ priced or readily available through ethnic stores or mall kiosks. We walked and we walked. I didn’t have the presence of mind to wear my Fitbit but according to

my phone we logged about 8000 steps or 5.3 kilometres. In the heat. This description likely sounds whiny. And in many ways, that’s exactly how I felt. Between the food coupons ($60), two Uber rides ($24), the two donations to the Food Bank ($50) it wasn’t a cheap outing. And yet. There is some‐ thing to be said for the sheer mammoth under‐ taking of it all, the absence of any visible complaints or impatience, the exposure for the eth‐ nicities represented, the food drive, the magnitude of the volunteerism. The fact that 370,000 people attended the day we did makes it truly mind‐blow‐ ing. But maybe the biggest thing is I can scratch it off my bucket list: Attend the world’s largest multicul‐ tural festival in one loca‐ tion. Been there, done that. Now this crowd and traffic hating introverted farm kid never has to go back again, from where I

A poetic story of a Chipman soldier’s survival

Michelle Pinon Editor

World War II veteran George Olson considers himself very fortunate to have beaten the odds. The former air gunner, now 93 years of age, served with the RAF and RCAF was able to survive 48 bombing missions in the span of twoand-a-half years. The odds were only one in four of surviving a single bombing mission. So to survive 48 was absolutely unheard of. “Your lifespan was 25 seconds,“ says Olson. He had 440 rounds of ammunition at his dis-

posal, and could fire off almost 1,000 rounds per minute. He was constantly watching shells exploding all around him, and other planes disappearing from sight and colliding with the grounds several thousand feet below him. Olson said it could just as well have been his plane that was shot down on any one of those bombing missions, and says luck is the only reason he managed to survive. “To take my mind off things I would compose poems of what we were doing at the time. I would jot down my thoughts on a piece of paper and give it to a

crew member. “Expecting to be killed at any moment is almost impossible to describe,” said Olson, who managed to do just that when he composed poems. He became almost afraid to make too many friends because every time he came back to the tent he was stationed in there was an empty cot. He even noticed during his time in the service his transition from a naive farm boy to a disillusioned veteran. “You grew up quickly. Survival was a matter of luck.” He credits his photographic memory and love of poetry for allow-

ing him to keep his sanity during those difficult times. “I wrote down my feelings in poetry. Unfortunately others took to alcohol.” He doesn’t consider himself a hero, just an airman who had to do a job. He found a way through poetry to endure what he was experiencing day in and day out. While he is proud to have served his country, Olson said he is not proud of the things he had to do. “I detest war because of what we went through.” He also hopes that one day there will be an end to war. “When I think about war and Remembrance Day I

think about the fellows who didn’t make it and the fellows that did.” Olson has also thought about the effect his book of poetry “No place to hide,” has had on family and friends who have had loved ones serve in war. Olson said he didn’t talk about his war experiences until after he wrote his book, and while it is painful to talk about those experiences even today, he says it is therapeutic. While he still sees flashes and bright lights during his nightmares, he said the mental wounds will never heal, the healing power of his pen will continue to pro-

Crystal Inverarity Ad Sales

vide solace for him and others who have endured the mental and physical wounds of war. Olson, grew up on a farm near Chipman and attended a two room country school (Paulus School), and developed a love of poetry as a child and credits his grandfather, who was the postmaster in the village for fuelling his imagination and fostering his creativity. Without that encouragement and his skills Olson would not have shared his gift with the rest of the world.

Business incubator to nurture start up companies Michelle Pinon Editor

Patty Podoborozny has hatched more than a few great ideas since taking the helm for the Town of Bruderheim; and now her latest effort to bring a business incubator to the community is about to hatch. The town’s chief administrative officer told council during its recent organizational meeting that her grant application for a business incubator has been approved, and the funding contract will follow. Several months ago Podoborozny applied for $67,000 in funding under the Community and Regional Economic Support (CARES) program. She went on to explain, “The application was to renovate as well as provide resources to help

start or grow business in the community and surrounding region; have access to a business coach and experience events catered toward the needs of the individual business.” For example, “Future business owners will be supported with research service, advice, seminars and workshops to make informed business decisions from concept to start up. The business incubator will provide private office space, meeting room space, administration services, reception, wireless internet, and free access to learning opportunities. Flexible month to month leasing of the office space will start at $500 per month until the small business could set up a permanent facility for their business. She added that, “History in other busi-

ness incubators across the province show that a year is enough time in the incubator before the small business can open its own doors…Small businesses are an important part of the Alberta economy making up 95.5 per cent of all businesses in the province. We are very excited to be able to provide support for the creation of new business opportunities in the community, region and province.” The business incubator will be located in the Bruderheim Infinity Centre, and Podoborozny expects renovations to take a couple of months to complete, and she is targeting January 2018 for opening its doors. To date she has received half a dozen inquiries about the space. Podoborozny is excited about the future

Town of Lamont approves 2018 list of capital projects

Carbon monoxide is an

invisible, silent, odourless killer.

Before the newly elected town council took office on Tuesday, October 24 the former council approved the 2018 capital projects. On October 10 council passed a motion to pass the recommendation from the town engineer, public works and recreation departments for a total of just over $1 million. The infrastructure projects would consist of the lane north of 51 Ave. to south of 51 Ave; 50 Avenue to lane north of 52 Avenue and watermain; and road improvement on 52 Avenue. Public works would purchase a used one ton truck and roof repairs would be done to the shop. Recreation would purchase a new quad cab and equipment for the grooming of ball diamonds. According to the request for decision from Chief Administrative Officer Sandi Maschmeyer the source of funds are based on the amount of the requested fund and the historical information. The planned cost of $1,0210960 will be covered by the fund from the town’s 2018 general operation without taking considerations on debenture or increasing the tax levy in 2018.

Chipman war memorial restored to its former glory

MICHELLE PINON PHOTOS

Thanks to the artistic abilities of Robert Murray of Master Murals, and the generosity of the Village of Chipman, Chipman Golden Seniors, Chipman Agricultural Society and the Chipman Lions Club the veterans memorial has been restored to its former glory. Of course, the key driver in the mural restoration project was the Chipman Historical Foundation which launched the fundraising campaign this past summer to ensure the project came to fruition. The soldiers in the front row from left to right are: Anne Eleniak, George Olson, Walter Melnyk, Stan Warshowski, Anna Pewarchuk and Harry Holowaychuk. Second row from left to right: Louis Holowaychuk, Mac Haines, John Motyka, Peter Pylpow, John Motyka, Frank Paege, and Loris Koch. Third row from left to right are: Glen Paege, Nick Sheptycki, Joseph Letawsky, Neil Deck, Jack Beamer, Howard Calvert, Roy Sheptycki and John Culley. Top row from left to right: Wm M. Sharun and Walter Babbin.

In Their Country’s Service From the Alberta town of Chipman And the district farms that lay all around Came many patriotic young men and women When the clarion’s call to combat did sound Enlisting in Canada’s Navy, Army and Air Force The Merchant Navy and Armed Forces Reserve Where all would valiantly manifest their allegiance Earning the Nation’s gratitude which they deserve They served in Canada and many far countries Battling on oceans, on land, in the sky Where for years they engaged in a conflict To ensure that liberty would never die Serving not for any fame or for glory But because Canada did have a need For them in their Nation’s Armed Forces If Canada’s war effort was to succeed Each Remembrance Day they will be honoured A recognition that we must never let wane As in the battle for freedom’s survival In their Country’s service, they toiled not in vain George Olson

By Michelle Pinon Editor

Thanks to the dedication and generosity of community organizations, residents and driving force of volunteers with the Chipman Historical Foundation the war memorial has been restored to its former glory. Mural artist Robert Murray worked his magic on the cement brick canvas this fall, and said he was pleased to be able to lend his time and talents to the project. “It was a thrill and honour to be a part of the restoration process for such a unique and very important part of the history of Chipman.” Murray, who was commissioned by the Town of

Lamont to do a number of murals this past summer, said he finally got a chance to look at the mural in August. “I finally got the chance to examine the work in August and it was indeed a fading beauty that was in need of some TLC. “The village provided me with scaffolding and I brought the paint. As the days progressed, it was special to see a reawakening of the original mural once more.” Some residents were surprised to learn that the mural was originally painted in colour, added Murray. Bringing the mural back to life has definitely made a positive impression, and thanks go to all those involved in the project. George Olson, one of the men featured on the mural wrote the poem “In Their Country’s Service” to honour the other men and women on the mural when it was originally completed around 20 years ago.

Bruderheim community park gets $10,000 boost Michelle Pinon Editor

Investing in the communities Enbridge employees work and live is a key part of the energy company’s mandate, and on Wednesday, November 1 three of its representatives were on hand to officially present Bruderheim town council with a $10,000 cheque for its community park project. Town of Bruderheim Chief Administrative Officer Patty Podoborozny said approval for the Community Investment Grant was received on October 13, and the funds will be put in the pool of donations that have been collected to date. So far, $119,000 has been raised for the community park with the overall target of $400,000. Podoborozny said the Bruderheim Lions Club has also applied for the CFEP, (Community Facility Enhancement Program), a large funding stream for the park as well as continue looking for other funding opportunities. As well, “The residents have formed a community park committee to look at designs, resources and funding streams. Town council is committed to supporting this amazing group of volunteers to get the shovels in the ground in 2018 to begin construction of our multi-generaltional community park.” Ryan Campbell, chair of the community park committee, has five children between seven and 15 years of age, and said he would like the park to be a family oriented space. Campbell said it would be nice to have a place where all of his family can gather together and enjoy a variety of activities. “I want to build a park that can grow with the community and meet the needs of current and future residents,” added Campbell. The overall plan for the community park would include a skate park, splash pad, com-

munity gardens and picnic area. Podoborozny added that, “The community park would provide diverse opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures to come together to play, connect and build relationships. With the town’s population expected to grow, a need exists to ensure that recreation and parks services not only meets the needs of present residents, but addresses the needs of future residents. Over the last 20 years, Bruderheim has been home to numerous regional recreational activities that truly define Albertans as community partners. The region is connected through shared recreational activities that truly define Albertans as community parnters. The region is connected through shared recreation and cultural experiences within our communities. These connections are the anchor for regional partnerships that extend to emergency management, youth engagement and safe park areas.” Jennifer Downs, a spokesperson with Enbridge said they are very happy to be able to support initiatives that benefit the community of Bruderheim. “As a good neighbour, we are committed to strengthening communities by sporting innovative programs that positively impact the communities that we live and operate in.” Downs said that in order to accommodate its growing facilities, it now has staff working from the Stonefell Terminal, and expect it to be operating 24/7 in December. “For our Norlite Pipeline Project, we are currently finishing up some clean-up work between our crossing at the North Saskatchewan River and our Stonefell Terminal. Our crews will be finishing up some work this coming week and will be returning next summer to complete the remaining work.”

Too far away for sight or speech, But not too far for thought to reach. Sweet to remember her who once was here, And who, though absent, is just as dear. The rolling stream of life rolls on, But still the vacant chair, Recalls the love, the voice, the smile, Of the one who once sat here. What would we give to clasp her hand, Her happy face to see, To hear her voice and see her smile, That meant so much to us. Nothing can ever take away the love a heart holds dear, Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps her near. Today recalls the memory of a loved one gone to rest, And those who loved her best. The flowers we lay upon her grave, May wither and decay, But the love for her who lies beneath, Will never fade away. Lovingly Remembered by Fred, Ken, Lorraine, Ernie, Tammy, Grandchildren, and Great-Grandchildren. 44p
