RUMSEY RECORD — What a beautiful weekend of sunshine and humid weather. The silage and haying equipment is running up and down the roads, so take care when you see them. Every farmer works hard at being safe as they enter and exit their fields but there are lots of blind spots on the big equipment when a smaller vehicle can be invisible to them.

As everyone is busy with field work or vacation, there is very little news to tell you about. The history book sales are progressing well so if you haven’t purchased your copy yet make sure you do. There are plenty of copies available at the library or you can call Dariel McNaughton and Mary Newton. The library will be also hosting a Minecraft day for the kids on Aug. 9, if you have a young one who would like to learn more about the game or how to join the library’s online site. Keep in mind that a library membership is only $20 for anyone to join and there are so many things available through the website that books are only a small part of what we have to offer. Come in and check out what all there is to offer, I think you will be impressed.

The STARS Ride is fast approaching, so get your pledge sheets filled out and join in on Aug. 7 for a fun day of horseback riding, silent auctions, games, raffle, breakfast, lunch and dinner, poker hands; the list goes on.

I would like to thank the fellow who is taking care of the Rumsey corner. He has been doing such a good job. It really draws the eye as you go by or turn into town. His name is Sean Proud and is sharing yard space up at Greg Primrose’s so not far from town. If you see him working up on the corner, make sure you give him a honk or a wave to let him know how much his work is appreciated.

For you vacation goers:A tramp knocks on the door of an inn known as St. George and the Dragon. The landlady answers. “Could you give a poor man something to eat?” asks the tramp.

“No!” yells the woman, slamming the door in his face. A few minutes later, he knocks again. “Now what do you want?” the woman asks.

“Could I have a few words with St. George?”

Have a great week.
