Lots of candy left over from Halloween

We had the pleasure of see some very cute and some scary costumes this past Saturday on All Hallows Eve.

We had the pleasure of see some very cute and some scary costumes this past Saturday on All Hallows Eve. Still have candy left over so if you are passing by come and get a bag full so I don’t eat it. Now my sons’ favorite season starts, hunting season. I hope everyone has good luck with filling their tags and, as farmers and landowners, I hope everyone who travels across your land is respectful.

I sadly have to pass on to our community the news of Ken Couturiers passing. He had been in hospital for some time now and the family held a very nice service at the graveside on this past Saturday honoring his life and all that he contributed to our community. He leaves to mourn a wonderful, big family who will miss him dearly.

The St. Mary’s Lodge Birthday club celebrated on October 19 with Lois Kiemele hosting the party. In the Lodge, Ruth Gordon and Bob Delaney celebrated their birthday and in Extended Care, Paul Gelinas and Muriel Stephenson also celebrated another great year. Next month, the Birthday Club will be held on November 16 and Elaine Weisse will be the hostess.

The Service of Remembrance for the Morrin Community will be held at the Morrin Hall on Sunday, Nov. 8 at 10:30 a.m. The Hall Board is putting on a breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 10 finishing in time for the service. Donations to be taken at the breakfast. After the service, those who wish can visit the cenotaph at the cemetery for the laying of a wreath. Everyone welcome.

In Rumsey, there will be a Remembrance Service held on November 11 at the drop-in. It will start at 10:45 out front of the building at the Cenotaph with fellowship to follow inside after. Please make a point of attending, it is so important to remember our past so as not to make the same mistakes in the future.

The 4-H Beef club is having their weigh day on November 15 so if this club would interest you and your children, give the Holowaths a call to get signed up. 4-H is one of the best rural organizations we have going, it teaches the kids so much, it is definitely worth considering if you want to get your kids into a good club.

Have a great week.
