Good Rumsey curling staves off cabin fever

Christmas market this coming weekend at Rumsey Hall

Well, the calves are in the feedlot and the cows have settled down for winter. We have all settled down to chores and some winter fun. The curling at the agriplex is in full swing and everyone is enjoying a good game now and then. The Super League is curling on a few Sundays, December 3 then December 16 and 17 will be their play-offs. This would be a great opportunity for you to come in and enjoy a lunch from the concession and watch some good curling. It will be the best way to stave off cabin fever, guaranteed.

The Christmas Market is planned for this weekend at the Rumsey Hall and it will be a fun day for all. We have lots of vendors and crafters coming with their products to sell so come and see what you can pick up for someone on your Christmas list or maybe a treat for yourself. There will be lunch also for all to enjoy during the day, come and join us from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday.

The Big Valley Elks will be hosting their Annual Turkey Bingos on Wednesday, December 6 in Rumsey and Wednesday, December 13 in Big Valley; start time for each bingo will be 7:30 p.m. They will have turkeys for door prizes and $20 gift certificates for all the bingos, cakes for ties. The prices to play have remained the same for many years now with the master card costing $10 and each extra card will be $1. The Elks do so much good in the community that this is hard to ignore, make sure you get out and join in the fun. The Big Valley Ladies Club (formally the Royal Purple) also supply the refreshments for each evening so you will be supporting two good clubs in one night. There will also be a turkey bingo at the Morrin Community Hall on December 13, pre-call at 6:30 with all proceeds going toward the Morrin Community Association.

The Morrin Lions will be hosting their annual Santa Breakfast on December 3 at the Morrin Hall from 9 a.m. to noon. Our Christmas Party with Santa is planned for December 17; if there is a change I will be sure to let you know. We don’t want any little ones to miss out on visiting with Santa.

I hope this will bring a smile, have a great week; Eighty-year-old Bessie bursts into the recreation room of the retirement home.

She holds her clenched fist in the air and announces, “Anyone who can guess what’s in my hand, can take me out to dinner tonight!”

A witty, elderly gentleman in the rear shouts out, “An elephant?”

Bessie thinks a minute and replies, “Close enough!”
