RUMSEY RECORD — The Rumsey 4-H Beef club had their club level public speaking event this past Tuesday, Feb. 23 and all 11 members did very well, making the judges think long and hard about the winners who would go onto districts in Carbon this Saturday, March 5. At the senior level, Brett Holowath took home first with Vanessa Richmond taking second. In the intermediate group, Noel Kiemele came out on top with first and Amanda Holowath got second. In juniors, Ryley Mappin received first with his brother Brady celebrating second spot. There were also presentations as part of the evening and Corbyn Stoneman taking home first in intermediate and his brother clearing first in junior level. Congratulations to all the brave speakers and presenters that successfully got up and delivered a polished performance.

The Morrin High School curling groups headed off to zones on this past Friday and did very well. The young ladies’ team consisting of Katy Primrose, Amy Adams, Shelby Primrose and Kayla Adams came away with gold and are heading off to provincials in Ponoka with their coach Betty Primrose. Congratulations to them for doing so well. The boys had a little more of a tough time, they lost out in a tie breaker game in their pool so could not advance on in the competition. That team consisted of Brett Holowath, Jack Adams, Anthony Huxley and Bryce Kopjar and Coach Kent Holowath. There was no mixed team this year.

The Morrin Figure Skating Club went to a competition in Hanna called Highway 9 Skate Challenge. Our Rumsey skaters were Mattie Jensen, Tyler MacFarlane, Alyssa Wilkins, Karson Gridley, Kyra Gridley and Amanda Holowath. They all did well and had good experiences, so congrats to them. They will be hosting their carnival on Saturday, March 6 starting at 2 p.m. Come out and enjoy.

The mixed bonspiel will be starting next week, so call Brooks and Jackie Watts if you are interested in signing up your team. There is always room for more.

The Rumsey Drop-in Centre will be having a meeting on this Thursday, March 3 at 10 a.m. to talk about what the next steps are to take with the drop-in building, so would love for all people interested to make a point of attending this meeting. Hope to see you there.

At St. Mary’s Lodge in Trochu, there have been a few birthdays in the past two months that I have neglected to mention. Thanks to Linda Helmer for passing on the information. In January, Cathy Wagstaff from Extended Care and Frank Smith from the lodge celebrated their birthdays. In February, Jean Richmond hosted the birthday party with Bessie Fraser and Elmer Wik from Extended Care and Bernie Boyden from the lodge celebrating another year. Bev Morgan will the be hostess for this month and the party will be held on Monday, March 21.

Have a giggle and a great week:

A man boards a plane with six kids. After they get settled in their seats, a woman sitting across the aisle leans over to him and asks “Are all of those kids yours?” He replies, “No. I work for a condom company. These are customer complaints.”
