Regular church services resume at Rumsey

Good wishes to Lorry Cawiezel who has had his hip surgery in Red Deer hospital on Tuesday, Sept. 21 and arrived home again on the following Thursday. The miracles of modern medicine are at work again. These belated wishes are late but now we know everything is going well.

Please be reminded of the “Dormitory Reunion” planned for Saturday, Oct. 23, in the Midland Hall. Plan to attend and bring your memories and memorabilia and have a fun evening beginning at 7 p.m. Sure sounds like fun to me as I was one of the students who spent time at the dorm while taking my three years of high school in Drumheller.

Sunday, Sept. 26, Sandy Davie of Big Valley celebrated his 80th birthday party at the Big Valley Jubilee Hall. Many folks from this area attended as Sandy is very well known by a lot of people here. Wonderful party, Sandy.

Belated congratulations to Kyle and Danielle Tolman, who were married in an outdoor ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 25. From all reports, the day was a nice one with lots of sunshine and warmth making it a very beautiful wedding day. Festivities moved to the Trochu Community Hall for the banquet and dancing.

It is good to report that Ken Couturier is home from the Drumheller hospital after spending five days there. More tests are in the future but all this takes time as we all know. As of right now, he’s back golfing and enjoying his family through work and play.

The Morrin Figure Skating club is presenting as their annual fundraiser this year, the “Chevelles” out of Lethbridge. This will be an evening of entertainment and socializing with a midnight buffet offered. For tickets, call Jill at 368-3733 or Melanie at 772-0000 or Troy at 772-2165. Festivities begin at 9 p.m.

This week has seen a lot of swathing being done and some combining. It’s amazing what a few days of sunshine and breeze will do to dry crops.

On Saturday, Oct. 2, Ernie and I were invited to attend the unveiling of the new STARS logo at the hanger in Calgary. It was the new logo of “25 years. of Care in the Air”. It was a beautiful drive to the city in the early morning as the ceremony was at 10 a.m. We made it through all the closed streets and construction areas and enjoyed meeting all our friends that we have made throughout the past 21 years of our association with STARS. Christy McDougal and her husband and family were in attendance as VIP’s. (Very Important Patient). She was the lady who was the guest speaker at our 2010 Ride for STARS last August.

One of the other vip’s was the very first patient flown by STARS 25 years ago. She was a premature baby and now lives to tell of her appreciation for STARS.

Church services in the Morrin United Church have begun for the new season. Sunday, Sept. 18 was the first one with Rev. Harold and Amy Hunter taking the service and then Oct. 3 was the first service of the season with Rev. Mervyn and Marilyn Penfound of Stettler taking the service. The schedule will be the same as in previous years with services the first and third Sunday of each month unless circumstances warrant otherwise.

The 2010 Rumsey fall supper is scheduled for the first Saturday in November. Call your family and be sure that they come as we all like to see family members who we don’t see much during the year.

Please have a nice ‘thanksgiving’ weekend with your family.
