By the time this paper is printed, students will be back in school and post secondary students will be scattered throughout the province. It will be nice to see the school busses running again on a daily basis. It helps keep the days in order.
Sunday, Sept. 6 is the first Sunday of the month and would ordinarily be the beginning of the fall season of church services in the Morrin United Church. Due to it being the long weekend, there will be no service on Sept. 6. Watch for further notice of services for Sept. 20 which is the third Sunday.
Putting up silage is the order of the days now as the crops seem to be ready and are perhaps better yielding than first thought. The grain fields are also quickly turning color so harvest is just around the corner. Please tell “Jack Frost” to stay away and come later this year.
Sympathy to the family of Gerry Scheunert, who passed away in Olds hospital, Sunday, Aug. 23.
The County of Starland held its BBQ on Friday, Aug. 21 in Rowley. How wonderful it was that a beautiful plaque was presented to the Primrose family in memory of Donnie Primrose in recognition of his 46 years of service with the county. It was announced that Highway 585 is dedicated to be “Primrose Lane”. It is along this highway that Don and Irene have lived for many years. Donnie is my nephew and we miss him dearly. They live just one mile east of our farm.
