RUMSEY RECORD — Calving season is fast approaching and the weather is doing its usual flip flop as the temperatures are likely to bounce between the double digits on both sides of the zero. Good luck to all the ranchers in the area as their busy season gets started.
Our Morrin High School Girls curling team succeeded. They’ve come home with their heads held high as they will once again hang a Provincial Banner in our home town rink. Well done, Kayla Adams, Amanda Holowath, Taylor Olmstead and Shelby Primrose. What a great feeling it is to have worked hard with your coach Betty Primrose and have it all come together like that.
The Richmond family will be hosting their bull sale this coming Friday, March 10 at 1 p.m. out at the ranch. Head out for a good meal, bid on a good bull or a group of heifers and visit with the neighbours. I hope they are blessed with good weather and a big crowd for the day.
The Mixed Bonspiel will be well under way as you read this column so don’t forget to head into town for a good homemade meal and some great curling as this will be the last one of the season and there are lots of teams entered. Tomorrow night, Thursday, March 9 will also be the last Oyster Night to take part in until next season so get in early for a delicious meal. As I had mentioned in previous columns, at this years’ banquet the Ag Society will be auctioning off the advertising boards and spots in the ice so if you have a business in mind that would enjoy all that free advertising for two years let them know to come and join us on Saturday night for a great meal and some fun bidding.
The Morrin Figure Skating Club is also getting very excited about their big day of celebration as they put the final touches on their performances for the Skating Carnival on March 12 starting at 2 p.m. at the Morrin Arena. Join them as they entertain you with all the new skills they have learned throughout the winter. It will get a great show.
On Saturday, March 25, the Morrin Ag Society is hosting a fundraiser with the Dueling Pianos. This is a great show with very talented musicians who can play any type of music you request. Along with the show, the Morrin Lions will be doing a silent auction to raise money for their many good causes so if you love good music and want to support a couple good organizations, this will be the place to go.
Have a great week.
One Sunday a pastor told the congregation that the church needed some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in the offering plate. He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out “three hymns.”
After the offering plates were passed, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000 bill in the offering. He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his congregation and said he’d like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate.
Have a great week.
