Julie and Jackson Stone had a baby . Wolverton has a new resident. Let’s give him three cheers! Edison Carter Stone was born June 12th at 12.45 am. He was 9 lbs 1 oz and 22 inches long. He can’t fit into newborn sleepers, and three month ones are too short too – wow – that’s a big baby. He’s not at home yet, but he will be soon – June 22nd. He got an infection at birth, but don’t worry, he’ll be okay because they caught it right away. When Leela held Edison she was very happy and she said “no, no, NO” when a nurse came to take his temperature. Leela’s granny is at the Stone’s house taking care of her until the family can be back together again.
Wolverton Welcome Signs Need New Caretaker
11 years ago the people of Wolverton had a parade, sale and potluck to raise money for the Welcome to Wolverton signs. It was the 150th anniversary of Wolverton. They had a huge parade with people dressed up in costumes. They had old fashioned cars and dolls, and even a miniature Wolverton Flour Mill with a tiny horse and buggy beside it. They had games like an egg on the spoon race where you had to go over hay bales. There was also something really funny: there was a sign that said “see the Wolverton Monkey” and when you opened it up there was a mirror! They had a a whole bunch of stuff about Wolverton History including pictures and stuff you could read. I think that would be fun. This is a slide show of some of the pictures taken that day. (Cole was adorable when he was two.)
They raised enough money and they put up the signs, and June Watts has been taking care of the signs since they went up and she needs someone else to take over. It isn’t a really big job – so don’t be scared – but June wants to hand it over to someone else.
For years we have had family, friends and neighbours come over on Canada Day for a potluck and fireworks. We are inviting anyone in Wolverton who wants to come this year. This could be a great way for people to meet each other. Potluck will be at 5, Fireworks will be later when it is dark. Come for one or both – bring your own beverages. Bring food to share if you’d like to join the potluck, and fireworks to share if you’d like to join the fireworks. No need to RSVP – just show up. Potluck is near the silos and fireworks are in the Wolverton Park near the silos.
