Moisture is wonderful but not very timely

The early part of last week was very busy, with hurry, hurry, hurry to get some seeding done.

We can remember having late spring April snow storms but on May 29 is getting a little late. However, we did get snow and lots of it. Wet, wet stuff that filled the low spots in the fields and the ditches along side of the road. Wonderful moisture but not very timely when all the seeding isn’t done.

The community has been quiet as far as I know this week. Pizza night was Saturday night in Rowley but never heard a report on that so far. It’s always a fun night and with the weather conditions, there were probably more folks than usual.

Remember, drop-in is back to Wednesday afternoons for the summer months so plan to come and have a coffee with us around 3 p.m. There is definitely a need for more members.

Monday, June 7 is the day of the Drumheller and District 4-H Show and Sale in Delia. Members are busy getting the finishing touches on their calf projects. The Rumsey club show and sells second, so plan your day accordingly.

Friday, June 11 is the Morrin High School grad. One of the reasons why this date is very important to us is that our last grandchild will be graduating. After planning to work this summer, he’s off to Edmonton for more studies. The grad supper is to be in the Rumsey Community Hall with the grand march and dance in the school gym in Morrin. Congratulations on all the grade 12 grads this year as there are 12 of them.

Sunday, June 6, at the Morrin United Church, following the morning service, a pot-luck dinner will be enjoyed by all who can come. This will be the last service with the Penfounds prior to the summer break.

Sunday, June 20 the same format will be at the church when there will be a pot luck dinner following the service when the Hunters will be there.

Both ministers have agreed to come back to our church in the fall, God willing and health stays well.

At the annual ball tournament this summer, the 2010 Homecoming will be held at the same time. Please be sure and tell all your friends who live away from here now. There will be invitations sent out to anyone who would not other wise hear about the event. Call Dariel McNaughton 368-2120 for any information regarding the homecoming. Invitations will not be sent to anyone local who would have an opportunity to hear about it from the local papers or by word of mouth.

The agenda for the weekend of July 16-18 is: pancake breakfast both Saturday and Sunday mornings, parade on Saturday morning, church service on Sunday, Saturday evening BBQ supper and dance along with fireworks. Sounds like a full weekend so let’s get the word around.

The grad 12 class of 2011 will be manning the concession at the ball tournament to begin to raise money for their grad next year. The Rumsey library has been doing it, but have given it up this year.

The Barharbour United Church camps are set for the summer schedule. If anyone is interested in their children attending any of the camps, call 403-742-4887 or or email;

This is a great experience for children of all ages and should be a part of every child’s growing up.

The date of another important event in our district in the summer is the 66th annual flower show on August 25.

Prize lists are available by contacting Dianna McBride at 403-368- 2436.
