Rumsey library to start ‘Craft Nights’

RUMSEY RECORD -- Happy hunting season for all the local hunters in our community. Be safe out there as you search out your big game.

RUMSEY RECORD — Happy hunting season for all the local hunters in our community. Be safe out there as you search out your big game. For all of you who are coming into our community to hunt, be respectful, ask permission first. No landowner likes to come across a carcass of an animal mistreated. That will be my rant for today.

The fall supper will be held this Saturday, Nov. 5 starting at 5 p.m. There will be lots of delicious homemade food and desserts and great people to visit with.

Gramma Donna is hosting a Meet and Greet for her newest grandson, Elias Sengaus, on Sunday, Nov. 6 from 1-4 p.m. It will be a wonderful afternoon to visit and hold the new baby.

The Morrin Lions are hosting a Diabetes Awareness Night at the Morrin Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 22 and encourage everyone to attend. Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. There is no cure for diabetes. People with diabetes need to manage their disease to stay healthy. There are three major types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. If you would like to learn more about this topic be sure to attend the information night.

It is with sincere sympathy that I share the news of Steven Kashuba’s passing on Friday, Oct. 28. His funeral will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at the Rumsey Hall at 2 p.m. He was well known for his mechanical skills in his shop in town, helpful to many community members and travellers who happened to wander into our little hamlet on their last drop of gas. He also farmed for many years as well as being the caretaker and ice maker at the Rumsey curling rink. He kept his smile and good sense of humour in spite of recent surgeries that reduced his ability to get around easily. Thank goodness for his golf cart, he could still get around town to get the mail and visit with neighbours.

Keep in mind that the Rumsey Library will be starting up our Craft Nights on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. We will start with exploring the fun of knitting, so bring in your projects, learn from skilled knitters or just come and sit and knit and visit if that appeals to you. Love to see you come out. The 2017 Community Calendar will be available soon so plan picking one up for yourselves or a friend.
