Annie and Clarence Harder were in Ottawa for a week at the end of May. They visited their son Dave and Kari Harder and celebrated their granddaughter Emily’s Grade 12 graduation.

While there, they also attended the Tulip Festival, where there were over 20,000 tulips planted. Each year these tulips get dug up to be replanted the following year.

Congratulation to Cheryl Wiart, the daughter of Paul and Sharon Wiart of Castor, on being successfully nominated to receive the EMS Exemplary Service Medal. She has been serving in the EMS field for 20 years, with her career starting in Castor. From there, she worked in Edson, then Barrhead. The ceremony was held in Edmonton on May 29 at the Shaw Conference Centre.

Francis Turnbull sent this interesting bit of info in to me this week: Kassidy Visser, grandson of Rosealie Payne, has written and composed seven songs for his album “Passing Tides,” which was launched in Lethbridge on June 5. Rosealie drove down to Lethbridge to surprise him at the concert celebrating the launch.

Kassidy (who is fondly referred to as Kooz by his friends) attended high school in Castor. Kassidy works at a large hotel in Lethbridge and also does graphic design. He and his band have been touring to other cities with another band “Alone I Walk.”

The Castor Farmer’s Market on June 7 was a bustle of activity. About 20 vendors had their items up for sale at the Castor Community Hall. A lunch of burgers and Caesar salad was available for hungry market-goers. Mark your calendar for the next market, coming up July 5.
