Change of days for Rumsey drop-in for winter months

Due to the early deadline for the long ‘Thanksgiving’ weekend, news is rather repetitive from previous weeks.

Mornings with heavy dew continue to plaque the farmers as they try to get the grain harvested. The crops are heavy also making for needing more drying time.

Dates to keep in mind; The Morrin Figure Skating fundraiser on Nov. 20th in the Rumsey Community Hall featuring the “Chevelles” from Lethbridge. See any of the skating families for tickets.

Another exciting event coming up is the “Dormitory Reunion”, Oct. 23, in the Midland Hall. Pass the word along to everyone that you know that lived at the ‘dorm’.

Many folks from the area attended the funeral services for Tom Lynch on Wednesday, Oct. 6. in the Trochu Baptist Fellowship Center. Stories and remembering and visiting along with laughter and tears, Tom was remembered. He was one of the true cowboys of his time. As the casket was transported to the cemetery for internment, folks stood in awe at the beautiful horse drawn carriage as it ‘clip-clopped’ down the pavement. It was a very fitting send-off to a very fine man of 96 years.

As is usual at an event such as this, it was nice to see so many of the family members and renew acquaintances.

The next church service in the Morrin United Church will be Sunday, Oct. 17 at 10:30 a.m., when Rev. Harold and Amy Hunter will be taking the service.

Beginning the first Thursday in November, drop-in will be held on Thursdays instead of Wednesdays for the winter months. The ‘cowboys’ have their coffee clutch on Mondays and Thursdays and having drop-in on the same day makes a saving in the power and heating bills. The boys meet in the mornings and the drop-in is in the afternoon. When the snow gets deep on the sidewalks, the boys keep them clean for the older folks to come to drop-in also.
