No news on 4-H yet, but volleyball action underway

Well, looks like we might have another slow week of harvesting and news.

Well, looks like we might have another slow week of harvesting and news. I have heard that the roof of the curling rink is finally finished, so take a drive by and have a look.

There isn’t any news on our local 4-H clubs yet, but I think the contacts have remained the same, so if you have a child interested in joining, get in touch with Melanie Nelson at 403-772-0000 and Gwen Hampton at 403-368-2169.

Morrin Figure Skating Club has had their registration already, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sign up so check that out if you are interested.

The Morrin Senior Boys  Volleyball went to Bassano to compete this past weekend and lost out in the quarter finals. The girls did better in Carstairs by winning silver in their volleyball competition. Our local seniors this year are Garrett Holowath, Daniel McNaughton, John Kiemele, Cody Kopjar, Lowell Nelson and Evan Hampton.

Carol Wilkins is working on starting up a new Seniors Open Curling league on Tuesday afternoons in November after the ice gets in, so give her a call if you are interested. Her number is 403-368-3750.

The Drumheller District 4-H along with ATB are hosting a concert at the Badlands Community Facility on Nov. 21 featuring Gord Bamford. The tickets are $25 with doors opening at 6:30 and show will start at 7:30. If you would like some tickets, contact Jill Holowath at 403-368-3733 or Melanie Nelson at 403-772-0000.

Helen passed this gardening quote on to me for all to enjoy, it seemed appropriate for the fall: “The gardener is… one who has seen everything ruined so many times that (even as his pain increases with each loss) he comprehends-truly knows that where there was a garden once, it can be again, or where there never was, there yet can be a garden.”

And on a lighter note, here is the joke for the week:

Tony and Luke, two brothers, were sitting in Cobbler and Proust’s, the solicitors, waiting room preparing themselves for the reading of their father’s will.

The two began yet another session of bickering about which of them was the favourite son and it was getting into full flow when they were invited, by Mr. Cobbler, into the office.

After a few preliminaries, including the disposal of a few small items to the cousins and old friends, the important bit came: who would inherit the farm, Tony or Luke?

Mr. Cobbler, the solicitor, took a deep breath, looked at the eldest brother Tony and said, ‘Well, Tony, the farm is yours.’

Tony turned to his brother, Luke and complained, ‘See! I told you, Luke, you were the favourite.’

Have a good week (hopefully in the sunshine.)
