Fraser community news

Last week Mother Nature must have thought she needed to get our attention. She sent a thunder and lighting storm on Thursday evening and early Friday morning. The thunder crashed, the lighting flashed across the sky and the wind blew. When the rain started, we didn’t know which windows to close from one minute to the next, because the wind kept changing directions. Branches were blown out of the trees and we had a major clean up job the next day.
The Fraser community celebrated a number of birthdays over the weekend. Cody Bird turned five years old on Aug. 5. His mom Katie reported they celebrated his birthday on Saturday, Aug. 7 with a homemade pizza party. The theme for his party was “Toy Story”, his grandma Gayle decorated his cake with Buzz and Woody characters from that movie.

Cody’s gifts included clothes, toy cars, a scooter and books; he also learned to ride a two-wheeled bicycle over the weekend. Now he can be seen riding all over the farm. Nothing like getting your first set of wheels to make a five year old grow up fast. Have fun Cody.
Katie reported her parents are having a new home built on the farm. They hope to be residents of the area next year. We send an early welcome to Evan and Margo from everyone here in Fraser.

Her grandparents Donna and Danny, Uncle Brad, Uncel Derek, Aunt Caresse and cousins Emma, Parker and Nathean, Tony and Heather Christopherson, Carl and Betsy Stemrich and their family Ian and Sarah and the McCollums joined the family to help her celebrate. They enjoyed tacos for dinner followed by cake and ice cream. We bet you can guess how her cake was decorated; it was a “Sock Monkey” of course! Happy birthday, Caitlin.

their home on Friday, Aug. 6 to help Reggie celebrate his birthday. Jan

She and her sister Robin did make one trip to see the Alaskan Pipeline and she also took pictures of Robin and Steve’s home and the neighbors’ wheat fields.
