Rumsey Christmas party is fast approaching

Elks Turkey Bingo coming up at community hall

By Patty Steen Rumsey Record

Welcome to the season of Christmas. The Christmas party is fast approaching for the little ones in our community. It will be held on December 16 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. with Santa coming to hear your child’s wish. Everyone is invited to come and visit, of course. There will be a Christmas craft and movie. Parents are invited to drop off their special packages in the kitchen with Santa’s helpers, make sure you add your child’s name. It should be a fun afternoon for everyone.

This Wednesday, December 6 will be the first of the Elks Turkey Bingos and will be held at the Rumsey Hall starting at 7:30 p.m. with the second bingo to take place in Big Valley the following Wednesday. Come out and have some fun. Morrin also will be having a turkey bingo on December 13 starting at 6:30 at the hall, all proceeds will go towards the Morrin Community Center.

The 4-H Beef club is chugging along with feeding their calves and taking care of business. At their December 12 meeting, they will be having a guest speaker, a nutritionist will share some information so that will be helpful in the coming months as they work towards packing on the pounds on their favorite bovine friends.

If you are stumped for Christmas gifts don’t forget about the Rumsey history book. There are still some available through any of the historical society members: Mary Newton, Dariel McNaughton; or myself at the library. The Rumsey Library is also selling calendars featuring some beautiful photos taken by local photographers as a fundraiser for the library so stop in and take a look.

I would like to pass on that Elaine Weisse is recovering happily from her second knee surgery. Both surgeries have gone very well and she looks forward to getting out on the golf course again next spring.

This is the last call for volunteers to attend the Rumsey Ag Society’s Annual General meeting to be held on Monday, December 11 starting at 7 p.m. The Ag Society does lots of things in the community and works hard to maintain the two beautiful buildings and grounds that we have in town so it is important that we keep this going. I hope you can help out.

That’s it for this week so I’ll send you on your way with a giggle, I hope:

An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. “Where would you like to sit?” he asked politely.

“The front row please,” she answered.

“You really don’t want to do that,” the usher said: “The pastor is really boring.”

“Do you happen to know who I am?” the woman inquired.

“No,” he said.

“I’m the pastor’s mother,” she replied indignantly.

“Do you know who I am?” he asked.

“No,” she said.

“Good,” he answered.

Have a great week.
