Full plate of fall suppers in works

RUMSEY

It was another great week of harvest weather. Farmers are really busy bringing in the harvest, which is of a much better quality than first thought. One never knows what the quality or the quantity will be until it’s in the bin.

Because of the good harvest weather, there isn’t much other news to report, other than word has been received on the passing of Gerry Gogol of Medicine Hat.

Gerry was our neighbour all of his growing-up years. He went to school in Rumsey and then in Morrin. Gerry is the son of the late Nick and Irene Gogol. He had battled cancer for many years, but died last Friday. He had just been in hospital for a couple of days.

Memorial services will be held next Wednesday (Oct. 12) in Medicine Hat. This whole community sends their sympathies to all — Gerry’s wife Peggy in Medicine Hat and their family, his two sisters, Sharon (Ed) Bremmer of Rowley, and Lucille (Terry) Hampton of Rowley, and his brother Leon of Rumsey, plus many nieces and nephews.

Church service was held last Sunday at the Morrin United Church, with Rev. Mervyn and Marilyn Penfound leading the service.

Attendance was low, partially due to the harvest, but those who attended enjoyed the service and the nice luncheon afterward.

It was great to have Hugo and Sharon Gerdung visiting for the service. They are very good friends and “old-time” dancing partners of the Penfounds. Do it again sometime.

The next service will be Sunday, Oct. 16, at the regular time of 10:30 a.m., when Jerry and Judy Beskowine will be leading the service.

Here is a list of the fall suppers to attend: Sunday, Oct. 16, Big Valley; Saturday, Nov. 5, Rumsey; Thursday, Oct. 27, Munson; Sunday, Oct. 30, Handhills.

By the sounds of things, maybe a person should put eating “on hold” for the next couple of months.
