Delayed Thanksgiving dinner in Rumsey will be on Nov. 25

First of all, I would like to apologize to folks for telling the wrong time for the Remembrance Day service in the Morrin Community Hall on Sunday, Nov. 7. The time of the service was 10:30 a.m. and not 10 as was printed last week.

The service was shared by Rev. Mervyn Penfound of Morrin United Church and Pastor Skip McArthur of the Morrin Bethany Lutheran Church. The service was very nice with members of the Morrin Legion and the Drumheller Cadets in attendance. Following the service in the hall, the congregation went out to the cemetery to lay a wreath there. All returned to the hall for lunch and fellowship.

The next service in the Morrin United Church will be Sunday, Nov. 21 when Rev. Harold and Amy Hunter will be leading the service. The Morrin Lutheran Church also meets at 10:30 a.m. and have church each Sunday.

On Thursday, Nov. 4, folks travelled to Trochu to attend the funeral service for Reg Nelson. A great tribute to Reg in the numbers of folks who attended. Reg belonged to two car clubs and his comrades were there with their antique cars to honour their friend. Two of Reg’s restored cars graced the entrance to the hall, and his friends had their many cars and trucks lining the driveway. His comrades also formed and honour guard as folks left the hall. Following the internment, everyone returned to the hall for more fellowship and remembering with slide show and pictures. Sympathy to all the Nelson families.

On Saturday, Nov 6, the Rumsey community held the annual fall supper. A delicious turkey meal, it was. The variety of salads and pies was unbelievable. It’s amazing how the community works together to have this event. Folks were on hand on Friday to peel vegetables and set up tables and chairs while others were picking up their turkeys to cook for the meal the next day. Everyone in the community has a job, be it cooking turkeys or making salads or pies. Over 380 folks enjoyed the meal.

Another meal is in the offing when the drop-in will be having their pot-luck dinner at noon on Nov. 25. Due to the timing of the harvest in the area, the thanksgiving dinner was put on hold and so will be held on Nov. 25. This will also be the Christmas celebration so plan to attend and enjoy the meal and entertainment.

How many folks forgot to turn their clocks back on Sunday morning? We remembered as we were off to Morrin to the Remembrance Day service.

Thursday, Nov. 11, everyone is invited to join the Legionnaires at the Rumsey Drop-in for the memorial day service at 11 a.m. Plan to stay for refreshments and fellowship after the ceremonies.

Beginning next Thursday, drop-in will be held on Thursdays for the winter months.

Have you got your tickets yet for the Morrin Figure Skating Club fundraiser to be held Nov. 20 in the Rumsey community hall? Call Jill Holowath at 368-3733 for tickets. This evening begins at 9 p.m. with the entertainment of the “Chevelles” from Lethbridge. Plan to support the local figure skating club.

Samaritan Purse shoeboxes are beginning to gather now as the deadline is Nov. 15. Call Marily Trentham as she is spearheading the event.

Have you got your recipes into Brenda Daly for the Munson Centennial Cookbook? This cookbook is being put together to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the town of Munson. Recipes are requested from past and present residents of the community. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the new hall in Munson.

Pat and Fred Holowath plan to move to Trochu in the near future and we wish them well. For anyone wanting to send them off with good wishes, call Dianna McBride, or Linda Helmer.
