RUMSEY RECORD -- I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is focused on having a happy new year with family and friends around you.

RUMSEY RECORD — I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season and is focused on having a happy new year with family and friends around you. The Rumsey Ag Society would like to thank Robert Richmond for bringing Santa to the Christmas party just before Christmas. Considering how busy Santa is at that time of the year, Robert must have done a great job talking him into taking a bit of time off to show his moves off with the kids at the dance. The organizers of the Christmas party would also like to thank the Big Valley Elks and Royal Purple for their donations to the Christmas party making it all that much more festive.

Mike’s Uncle, John Storch called to invite us to the celebration of his 90th birthday party at the Newcastle Community Hall next Saturday, Jan. 9 starting at 2 p.m. So I took the liberty to forward this invite to all of you who are friends with Uncle Johnny with his pipe and stories to tell. I hope you will be able to attend, I know he will get a big kick out of seeing all his Rumsey friends again.

The men’s curling bonspiel will be starting in Rumsey at the end of this month, so contact Brooks and Jackie Watts if you are interested in entering a team or getting on a team for the event. The dates of the bonspiel are Jan. 25 to 30.

The number one goal of 2016’s new year resolutions are to get fit and stay healthy so here are some fun facts that might clarify that goal for you:

Facts about staying healthy:

-If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

– A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water and is still fat.

– A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.

-A tortoise doesn’t run, does nothing… yet lives for 450 years.

And you are telling me to exercise! I don’t think so!

Here is my new year resolutions:

My goal for 2016 is to accomplish the goals of 2015, which I should have done in 2014, because I made a promise in 2013 and planned in 2012. (If I could only remember them)

Have a great week!
