Lots of quantity but low quality in Rumsey

Do hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving with family and friends. At our house, we were divided. Ernie had thanksgiving dinner with Ken and his family and then went to combine. I went to Red Deer to have dinner and visit with Charlene and her family.

Combines were busy most of this week with a lot of grain being taken off. The grade is not very good but the quantity is there. Lots of straw.

Just a few reminders of things to come:

– The dormitory reunion is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Midland Hall. Tell all your old classmates.

– Rumsey fall supper is Saturday, Nov. 6, from 5-7pm.

– Trochu fall supper is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 29 from 5-7 p.m. in the Trochu Community Hall. This is put on by the Trochu Golf and Country Club.

– Nov. 20 is the Morrin figure skating fundraiser in the Rumsey community hall.

The harvest had better get done soon as with all the events to attend, there will be no time to work in the fields.

The Morrin United Church is participating in “Operation Christmas Child”. Marilyn Trentham is coordinating this with Vi Aidie. All boxes need to be in by Nov. 15. Marilyn has some boxes if anyone is in need on one. Just give her a call.
