Such strong winds that we have been having this week caused a powerline break on Sunday afternoon near Leon Gogol’s farm. Thanks to the quick response of neighbours and the Rumsey Fire Dept., the fire that was started was soon put out without too much damage. Power was soon restored, so all was back to normal.
Further information with regards to “Primrose Lane”. The Starland County has made application to Alberta Transportation to install two “Primrose Lane” signs on Secondary Highway 585, one when approaching from the east and one when approaching from the west, indicating that range road 20-4 south has been designated as “Primrose Lane”.
These signs are in recognition of 46 years of service to the county by the late Donnie Primrose. The designated roadway is the one that goes south past the west side of their yard.
A graveside memorial service was held Friday, Sept. 18 at the Rumsey Cemetery for Gloria Couturier, who passed away last Sunday, Sept 13 in the Drumheller hospital. Mr. Gerry Beskowine of the Knox United Church in Drumheller conducted the very meaningful outdoor service. It was under beautiful harvest sunshine that a dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and wife was laid to rest. At the end of the service, each grandchild was given a helium balloon in the color of their gender, and they released them into the heavens all at once.
The gathering then moved into the community hall for a time of refreshments and fellowship. Gloria’s son, Terry, presented a slide show of his mother’s life on the big screen with the aid of modern technology.
Church services in the Morin United Church began for another season on Sunday, Sept. 20, with Rev. Mervyn and Marilyn Penfound leading the service. There was a lot of chatter as folks got together again after the summer break. The time of the services are 10:30 a.m., with a time of fellowship after the service.
The next service will be Sunday Oct. 4, when Rev. Mervyn will be in attendance. Continuing with the schedule of Mervyn having the service on the first Sunday of the month and Rev. Harold and Amy Hunter of Olds coming for the third Sunday of the month. Harold will be here on Oct. 18. Mark your calendars.
