Remembrance Day ceremonies coming to communities next week

Rumsey Record

I wonder if summer is over. With the arrival of that snow on Sunday, it really makes me wonder but it is Alberta after all and anything can happen, so I will wait and see.

Lois Kiemele served cake at St. Mary’s Lodge last week and they celebrated five birthdays. In the extended care, Paul Gelinas and Muriel Stephenson celebrated their birthdays and in the lodge, there were Anna Meding, Ruth Gordon and Bob Delaney celebrating. It was a good crowd that got together, so thanks to Lois and her helpers for making it happen.

Doris (Jacobs) Irving is celebrating her 90th birthday on Nov. 8 and the family has decided to have a party. The open house will be held at the Porch Light Common Room at 124-7th Ave N in Three Hills from 2 to 5 p.m. Her daughter wanted to pass on that everyone is welcome to come over and join in the fun.

I would like to thank Marilyn Trentham for passing on some news from Morrin. The Morrin Lions are raising money for the Morrin School swim program by holding an after harvest breakfast on Sunday, Nov. 2. It will go from 9 until noon at the Morrin Hall. They have also been doing a little work at the playground and have plans for more in the spring.

Morrin seniors have some events coming up that people may be interested in. The quilters are holding a retreat on November 14, 15 and 16 at the Seniors’ Drop-in Center. A good chance to get some projects done for Christmas or grab some free advice from the experts. Contact Marj Chapman at 403-772-3814 if you are interested.

Larry Anderson is organizing a bus trip to Red Deer for Wednesday, Nov. 12 to the Jackpot Casino and for shopping. It will only cost you $20 to jump on board. That is a good deal and all the responsibility is off your shoulders. Contact Larry by October 30 at 403-772-3772

Pickleball is being played at the Morrin School gym on Thursday nights at 7:30, so join in on that if you are curious what pickleball is.

Remembrance Day services will be coming up soon for every community. I know that Morrin will be holding theirs on Nov. 9. Big Valley will hold a service at the school on Nov. 7 then the community one on Nov. 11. Rumsey will also have a service at the drop-in on Nov. 11 with a social to follow. All of these will start at 10:45 so the bugle will blow at 11 sharp.

With the recent events in Ottawa, I believe that Remembrance Day is becoming more and more important every year.

I am hoping to have the 2015 library calendars ready for the fall supper on Nov. 1, so I hope you will plan to include it in some of your Christmas presents this year. They look really good and include all local pictures from local talent.

My joke of the week is picking on blonde, so I will apologize in advance but it is funny so hope you find the humor in it. Enjoy.

A blonde canvassed a wealthy neighbourhood looking for odd jobs. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had anything for her to do.

“Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?”

“How about $50?”

The man agreed and told her the paint was in the garage. A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

“You’re finished already?” he asked.

“Yes,” the blonde answered, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.”

Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50.

“And by the way,” the blonde added, “that’s not a Porch, it’s a Ferrari.”

Have a great week.
