It’s simply a good week to enjoy reading a book

On Monday evening, Oct. 22, the STARS committee of the Rumsey Agricultural Society met in the lobby of the Agri-plex.

On Monday evening, Oct. 22, the STARS committee of the Rumsey Agricultural Society met in the lobby of the Agri-plex.

Not all members were present, but the beefs and bouquets from the past summer ride for STARS were discussed and noted.

It was a long-overdue follow up meeting after our last ride in August.

Harvesting always seemed to interfere in meeting plans.

A reminder again that the open league curling season is here and for anyone wanting or thinking of curling this winter, call Ken at 368-2128 and get on a team.

This is scheduled to begin in early November. There will be three categories — men’s, women’s and mixed curling nights.

Super league will begin as soon as the rink is ready, and it’s a worthy spectator night, as there’s some good curling displayed.

Super league is played each Friday evening, with two draws each time — 7:30 and 9 p.m.

Wow, what a week of no sunshine and clouds, snow, shovelling snow, slipping and sliding around — falling like Pastor Skip of Morrin did. Very depressing. It was a good week to spend reading a book.

Folks went to Morrin Community Hall on Saturday to take in the estate-auction sale for Marie Jensen. Many went home with their treasures that they wanted and some treasures that they didn’t really want. So go auction sales …

We had a chance to meet the new folks in our community at the sale on Saturday — Barrie and Vel Longman. If you see them at the fall supper, be sure to introduce yourself. They will be the folks with Lorrain and Gerald Foesier, as they’re among their closest neighbours now.

This Sunday at the Morrin Community Hall, there will be a time of “Remembering” when the Bethany Lutheran Church and the Morrin United Church join together and share the service, laying of the wreath at the cenotaph and a time of fellowship afterward.

This coming weekend, there’s a co-ed volleyball tournament at the Morrin School gym. There are boys’ teams from Carbon, Trochu, Donalda and Morrin. The girls’ teams are from Erskine, Trochu, Olds and Morrin.

The host school coaches are Betty Primrose and Melanie Nelson. Good luck to all participants.
