There is sad news that Ethel Hollihan, a dear friend and a founding member of the
club back in 1989 passed away recently. Ethel and
Merv worked long and hard as club members and executive, Ethel being our
sec/treasurer for more years than most can remember and always an organizer and worker
for our annual show at Tees AB. The club will be honoring her in some way for her
vast contributions over the years.
The club has been approached by the Lacombe Days Parade Coordinator
to see if any of our members are interested in going in the July 23rd parade in

see members there.
