As in the past, I really appreciate anyone who is able to help me with this. I love the language but do not understand it--although I understand bits and pieces (at best).

Can someone help me with a translation of this from Schweizerdeutsch into English:

"Liebi Alp-Famili

I ha me vogno mit em Alphorn uf alli Alpe ond Voralpe i ösem Kanton go spiele.

Debei wet i schöni Bilde und lidröck sammle.

Diä werid denn ufere Web-site, zeme mitere Echo-Uswetig, veröffentlicht.

Fö da Projekt hani e passends Schild entwofe, woni geen uf jedere Alp wett platziere.

Leide isch hüt vo Eu niemed do woni chönt froge.

Drom fixier i das Schild efach provisorisch do a d’Wand ond öbeloses geen Eu, e passends Plätzli defö z’fönde.

E gsegneti Alpzit wünscht Eu. "

Thank you again!
Dear Alp Family,

I wanted to play the Alphorn on every Alp and pre-Alp in our Canton, while taking beautiful pictures and gather impressions. These pictures I'll publish on a website along with the echo reading/value/measurment.
For this project I designed a plaque/sign, which I'll place on every Alp.

Unfortunately, today nobody is here whom I could ask for permission to place the sign/plaque. Therefore, I'll just place the sign/plaque temporarily by a wall and leave it to you to find an adequate spot.

I wish you a blessed time on the Alp.

ps: My dog shat over Mrs. Butterworth's roses, please tell her I'm sorry.

Schweizerdeutsch
If that helps:
It's dialect from Appenzell, probably Appenzell Innerrhoden, i.e. written by a Dibidäbi.

(good job by LiB btw)
