The Milk River chamber was represented by a delegation comprised of Kenneth Hierath, Milk River, and Archie Wel-cock. Supporting the Milk River delegation as a member was Myron Verburg of Coutts. When a second senior citizens home is built in the County of Warner it will operate under the Warner County Foundation, set up to administrate the business of the home located at Raymond Ridge View Lodge. People who live in the eastern area of the county feel there is a need for a second home. A chamber of commerce committee has made a full study of the needs. The delegation indicated there are a number of people who wish to move into a home should it be located in the eastern area. Ridge View Lodge, at the present time, is operating with enough guests to fill the lodge. There are a number of senior citizens who have spent the winter months at the lodge who have indicated they will return to their own private homes when spring comes. Raymond town council and Mayor Robert Graham took the view as time goes on more citizens will make their home in a home for senior people where they can be independent and still not be alone. Application for a second home must be made through the County of Warner Foundation Board of which Murray Holt is the chairman.
