Ag Society’s Fall Supper is approaching

What a beautiful October we have been enjoying so far. I hope everyone is approaching the end of their harvest and fall work.

What a beautiful October we have been enjoying so far. I hope everyone is approaching the end of their harvest and fall work. I know the work on a farm is never done but it is meant to be enjoyed as well.

The Rumsey Historical Society is quickly concluding their work as well on the new History Book. Dariel McNaughton sent me a note asking the community to contribute more pictures for the book; Family pictures, special anniversaries, birthdays,pictures from Rumsey events in the past 30 years, anything you think will enhance the stories already submitted. Forward them on to or talk to Dariel or any member of the historical society.

The Morrin Lions will be hosting a Harvest Breakfast on Sunday, October 25 at the Morrin Hall from 9:00 am to noon. They hope to see everyone there. They will be donating the proceeds from the breakfast to the Morrin school for their Breakfast program.

This week is also an important week at the Morrin School because the SADD Chapter is promoting National Teen DriversSafety Week. The Morrin School SADD Chapter is partnering with Parachute for Project Gearshift, a national public awareness campaign aimed at reducing distracted, aggressive and impaired driving the leading cause of death among teens. On Oct.20, SADD Chapter members will be promoting the #PracticeSafeText campaign during the lunch hour, which will encourage others to take selfies in a photo booth to create awareness using social media regarding the issue of texting and driving. I hope this will hit home with some if not all of our teens.

The Rumsey Ag Society’s Fall Supper is fast approaching. It will be held on Nov. 7 and the supper usually runs from 5 p.m. to7 p.m. It will be a busy night, so don’t be late to supper.

The Morrin Figure Skating Club presents Spuds & Sundaes Dinner plus Local Talent night on Saturday, Nov. 28 at the Morrin Community Hall. The doors will open at 5 p.m. with dinner starting by 5:30. The show will start at 7 p.m. You can get your ticket from any figure skating member or locally here from Jill Holowath at 403-368-3733.

The Rumsey Community Library photo contest was a success and we found 13 beautiful pictures to grace a new calendar for the coming year. I have finished proofing it and it should be off the printing presses by the end of the month, hopefully in time for the fall supper.

And my wise words for the week: Always borrow money from a pessimist, he won’t expect it back anyways. Oscar Wilde

Have a great week.
