Change of seasons opens door for weekly drop-in gatherings

The whole community must be busy with fall work, harvesting the grain and taking in the produce from the gardens.

The whole community must be busy with fall work, harvesting the grain and taking in the produce from the gardens. Social life is at a standstill, so there’s very little to report from the Rumsey region.

The local drop-in sessions have started again after having the summer off. It has been decided that they will be held each Wednesday throughout the winter, so mark your calendars and come to visit. We welcome more folks to participate.

In our family, our thoughts and prayers are with our son, Ken, and his wife, Sharon and their family as they prepare for Sharon’s father’s memorial service, set for Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Glenwood Memorial Gardens in Sherwood Park. Sharon is an only female in that family. She has two brothers — Dwight, Kathy and their family live in Edmonton and Brad and his wife and their family make their home at Grande Prairie.

We have received word from the north country that Ernie’s brother, Russell, has now been transferred to Fairview hospital, which is in the vicinity of his Peace River home. He had quite a time of it in Edmonton, but thanks to the care from doctors and nurses there, he’s now recovered enough to start his way to getting back home.

Word has been received of the passing of Myrtle Upton, who made her home for the past few years at St. Mary’s Health Care Centre in Trochu. She passed away Sunday morning. She celebrated her 91st birthday this past July 10. She and her husband, George (Bud), moved there when it was no longer feasible for them to live on the farm.

Sympathy to their two sons and their families; Ron and Kathryn-Kane Upton of Rumsey and Cliff and Ida Upton of Morrin.
