Fun coming to Rumsey Hall on Saturday

Hope you all had a good weekend. It was a crushing blow for all the Edmonton Eskimo fans out there to watch them get stomped

Rumsey Record

Hope you all had a good weekend. It was a crushing blow for all the Edmonton Eskimo fans out there to watch them get stomped on by the Calgary Stampeders, but really they just were not playing as good as they could have and Calgary deserved the win. So good luck to Calgary next weekend in the Grey Cup. It is great to have a team from Alberta in the final game.

The Big Valley Inn is hosting a Grey Cup Party on Sunday, Nov. 30 starting at 4 p.m. Tickets only cost $20 and will include beef on a bun and snacks during the game. Half of the ticket sales will go towards the Big Valley School’s breakfast program. So if you want to get on your favorite team jersey, whether it is Calgary or Hamilton, and join everyone at the Inn, it sounds like a great time.

Sandy McNaughton called to let me know that the Christmas concert practices are all lined up and ready to go, just need the kids to show up. The first practice will be held on Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. with the following practices on Dec. 7 and 14 at 3 p.m. The big show will happen on Friday, Dec. 19 starting at 7 p.m. So far they have planned that Michies will be playing and there are plans in place for a play directed by Darcey Graham called “Angel’s Alert”. I also heard a rumor that Santa will be stopping by, so if you have your list ready by then, you might just get a chance to convince Santa in person that you really have been good all year.

There is a fun night coming up at the Rumsey Hall this coming Saturday, Nov. 29 starting at 7 p.m. The Alberta Avalanche (Morrin) Basketball Team is presenting the Atomic Improv Comedy company, who will be performing at 8 with the Suit Jacket Society band getting you out on the floor at 9:30. The tickets are $25 and you can get them from Betty Primrose at 403-368-3726 or Melanie Nelson at 403-772-0000.

The Rumsey/Rowley History Book committee is looking for stories from anyone who presently lives in and around Rumsey or Rowley or who lived here in the past as we are compiling the third edition of our history book. If you already have a story in the second edition, please continue your story from where you left off. We have information letters available to help people with the construction of their stories. Please submit your stories and pictures to For additional information, contact Dariel McNaughton at 403-368-2120

There will be a regular meeting for the Morrin Blooming Prairie Seniors on Wednesday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at the drop-in centre, Morrin Arena. Everyone 55+ is welcome.

The Morrin Lions are holding their annual Santa Breakfast on Sunday, Dec. 14 from 9 until noon. Santa will put in an appearance around 10 to 10:30. There will be a coloring contest, craft and treats for the kids. This will all be held at the Morrin Community Hall. We will be accepting donations of cash or food for the Drumheller Food Bank. Everyone is welcome.

And finally, I thought I would include some Grey Cup trivia to conclude this week’s news:

● The 1912 Grey Cup game between Toronto and Hamilton was delayed for an hour while officials looked for a football until a dressing room door was kicked in and the precious pigskin was found

● In 1995, the Baltimore Stallions won the Grey Cup as Canada’s best football team, the first and only American franchise to win the trophy

● The week before the 1939 Grey Cup in Toronto, the weather turned wet and then cold. In an attempt to soften the rock-hard turf, the grounds crew poured 400 gallons of gasoline on the field and set it ablaze the day before the game.
