It looks like this animal came out on top during this contest as a cowboy heads down at a “Brahma Rama” held at Cadogan on Thursday evening, August 24. The crowd in attendance watched this and several other rides just west of Cadogan. Overall winner was 12 year old Billy West of Cadogan who took home a buckle, leather jacket, boots, spurs—and approximately $4,500. The invitational competition featured 30 junior steer riders from the associations of Canadian Professional Rodeo, Lakeland Rodeo, Wild Rose, Foothills Rodeo and Chinook Rodeo.

Rosenheim District Marks Centennial With Celebration
The Rosenheim district south east of Provost marked its 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first settlers with a celebration on Saturday afternoon, August 26.

The event began at St. Norbert’s Church at 3:30 p.m. with O Canada lead by Sandi Specht.

President of the Rosenheim Historical Society, Marion Kelch called forward representatives of the families of the 1906 settlers whose pictures wee carried to the front of the church.

It was noted that in 1922 St. Norbert’s Church was built and a short biography of famed architect Ladislaus de Jurkowsi was given.

Jurkowski’s grandson, Doug Duhamel, was present and addressed the crowd.

Kelch also gave tribute to the arrival of the Mennonites in 1925.

Hymns by singers from the Lendrum Mennonite Brethren Church, Edmonton were heard from both the front of the church and from the back and top area of the church where traditionally German choirs would perform.

The Saturday afternoon celebration also marked the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Rosenheim Historical Society (1976).
President of the German-Canadian Association of Alberta. Heinz Kleist, who lives in Edmonton, brought greetings from his membership of 3,000, ranging from Medicine Hat to Grande Prairie including the Rosenheim Historical Society. He said that the Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bernd Reuscher sends his regrets that he cannot attend the celebration as he is still in Germany, however he sends greetings and well wishes to Marion, her executive and membership, as well as honored guests Dr. Horst Schmid, MLA Doug Griffiths (who was unable to attend) and the five pioneer families who are being recognized at the 30th anniversary of the Rosenheim Historical Society and 100th anniversary of the arrival of the German American settlers. “President Marion continues to enrich, promote and nurture the German culture in Alberta as well as German relations with Germany. I have worked with Marion on different projects when I was president of the German Canadian Business & Professional Association of Alberta 2002-2005. I was very impressed with her enthusiasm and commitment. It with great pleasure that I (Reuscher) present the “German Canadian Friendship Award” in recognition of outstanding support of German Canadian relations to Marion Kelch, at this special occasion.” Kelch said she accepted the award on behalf of all Rosenheim Society members.
