    Averie, 6, daughter of Sandra Graham and Mark Meuchel, and Mackenna, 6, daughter of Sharon and Kurt Walker had hair most women of any age would die for. When they decided to lose the locks, a suggestion was made to perhaps give their hair to those who need it most, and they went for it.

Drumheller recognizes war time sacrifices

Drumheller Remembrance Day ceremonies were held Tuesday, in the DCHS/ Central School gymnasium. The service was followed by a march back to the Royal Canadian Legion, Drumheller Branch.  Veteran Pat Sparrow lays a wreath at the foot of the cenotaph as members of the First Drumheller Scouts, Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Furious, and Air Force Cadets stand guard.  Mayor Bryce Nimmo was invited as guest speaker, Drumheller Institution Warden Mike Hanly brought greetings from the federal government, and Stan Schumacher brought greetings from the provincial government.

Busy Christmas season ahead for Salvation Army

 It doesn’t take long before ghosts and goblins fade into memory, and sugar plum fairies begin their fevered dance and Santa’s elves come to the forefront of our imagination.
    For some, that’s as far as Christmas visions ever get. Even in a close-knit community like Drumheller, there are cracks that people, and even whole families, fall through. Shelter and a warm meal may be the only Christmas wish they are hoping for.
