Church services resume

onthly birthday party at St. Mary’s Extended Care Center in Trochu. Laura Griffith was the hostess of the month and everyone surely did enjoy her delicious chiffon cakes.

There were three birthdays in August; one being Lulu Berquist who turned 102 last month. Lou Frere also had a birthday as did Mary Chambers. Each received a small useful gift from the Rumsey Ag Society.

It was a very nice afternoon as Marion Stiekle and her group were on hand to play music and tell stories. I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with Ernie’s cousin Ely Goddard from Lousana who has just moved into the lodge.

During the afternoon, Helen and Lenoard Steen arrived with an absolutely huge arrangement of fresh cut glads from their garden. Four sisters, Alma Tolman, Helen Steen, Elsie LaRose (Edmonton) and Linda Helmer sang together “Side By Side”, one they have done many times before.Marion Stiekle played accordion for them.

The September birthday party will be held Monday, Sept. 21, when Linda Helmer will be the hostess. All are invited to join in the party and lend a hand with the serving.

Wednesday afternoon drop-in was held this week after a one week reprieve due to the garden show being last Wednesday.

Harvesting in one form or another is the order of the days this week. Students are back in school and all is well. The days are very warm and the grain is ripening fast.

Morrin United Church services will begin Sunday, Sept. 20 with Rev. Mervyn Penfound in attendance. The following Sunday service, October 4, Mervyn will also be taking the service. Rev.Harold and Amy Hunter will be back the third Sunday of October, which is the 18th.

Due to the early deadline because of the long weekend, news is short.
