Morrin Lions to host pancake breakfast on Feb. 12

The Women’s Bonspiel will be well under way as you read this column, with Oyster Night on schedule for tomorrow night.

RUMSEY RECORD — The Women’s Bonspiel will be well under way as you read this column and Oyster Night is on schedule for tomorrow night so you don’t want to miss it. There will be great curling all week at the rink as well as good homemade soups and pies with your burger and fries at the concession. Make your way up to the rink and join in on the fun.

The 4-Her’s are getting their public speaking skills warmed up for their annual public speaking date of Sunday, Feb. 19. It is set to start at 2 p.m. at the Hall, so if you want to see our future in action take a wander into town and see what they are up to on that Sunday.

The Morrin Lions are hosting their annual pancake breakfast this coming Sunday, Feb. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon. They have decided that since February is the month of the heart, they will be donating all the proceeds from this breakfast to the Heart and Stroke organization. Come on down and enjoy a delicious breakfast and support a good cause. They will issue a donation receipt if you would like one.

Next on the calendar for the curling club in Rumsey will be the Mixed Doubles to be held from Feb. 23 to 25. For this event you will need a two-person team, one male and one female. Call Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403-368-2357 to enter.

The Rumsey Drop-in is hosting a Coyote Derby this coming Saturday as well as a fundraiser and would encourage all our good hunters to sign up for a day of fun. You can contact me at 403-368-3820 or for a registration form. It is a one-day hunt and there will be prizes for the most coyotes brought in by that Saturday evening. We will be serving a chili supper for all the hunters so give me a call or email for more information.

Since it is “Heart Month,” I took a look at the ‘Heart and Stroke’ website of Canada and will share a little information with you:

Your blood pressure, which is a measure of the pressure or force of blood against the walls of your blood vessels (known as arteries). Your blood pressure reading is based on two measures called systolic and diastolic. The systolic (top) number is the measure of the pressure force when your heart contracts and pushes out the blood. The diastolic (bottom) number is the measure of when your heart relaxes between beats. High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for stroke and a major risk factor for heart disease. High blood pressure is when the blood pressure in your arteries is elevated and your heart has to work harder than normal to pump blood through the blood vessels. It is important that you have your blood pressure checked regularly by your healthcare provider.

Happy heart, everyone, have a great week.
