Rumsey Elks turkey bingo coming Dec. 7

Rumsey Santa Party at community hall soon

This year’s Christmas Market was a great success as reported by everyone who attended. The organizers would like to send out a big thank you to all the vendors and home crafters who took the time and effort to brighten our hall with the sights and smells of Christmas while displaying all their wonderful wares. Also, all of the community members who came in for lunch and to shop, thank you for supporting our market and making it a success. We will be sure to plan another for next year.

The next event on the hall calendar is the Elks Turkey Bingo on December 7 starting at 7:30 but come early to get your bingo cards and snacks and get settled because they want to start the balls rolling right at 7:30. This event supports two great organizations; the Elks and the Big Valley Ladies Club (formally known as the Royal Purple); who give back to our communities in many ways so be sure to support this fun night. The Elks also have a turkey bingo in Big Valley the next Wednesday, December 14, so if you miss this one you can always attend the next one or, heck, go to both!

The Santa Party at the hall is planned for Saturday, December 16, in the afternoon. I don’t have an exact start time but I know there will be fun and games, a movie and, of course, a visit with Santa for everyone young and old.

I would like to send a big thank you out to Karrie’s and my local hero, Phil McBride. We had been struggling with a non-functioning furnace in the post office/library for close to two months with no solution appearing any time soon when Phil took it upon himself to come in and take a look. Within an hour or so he had things figured out and heat finally coming through the duct work. Thank goodness for good people! I will really look forward to heading into work this next week with the inside feeling a lot better than the outside.

The Super League curlers will be heading in this Sunday, December 3, for another full day of curling so if you are interested in watching some good curling and enjoy a home cooked meal from the concession then this is the place to come. I believe the first game will be at 10 a.m. and continue on until the evening so there will be lots of opportunity to wander in.

The St. Mary’s Lodge Birthday crew were at it again with Elaine Weisse playing hostess as they headed over to Trochu to celebrate November birthdays. There were quite a few in the continuing care; Lorraine Robertson, George Fabion, Jean Sorasin, Doris Irving, Martha Doerksen and Martha Kruger. In the lodge there was only one fellow celebrating, Roy McNeil, blowing out his candles out all by himself. In December, the hostess will be Linda Helmer and the date is set for the 18th. If you are ever interested in helping out with this club, give Linda a call and she will be happy to bring you along.

Giggle for the day: “BOOM!”

Mom asked; “What was that?”

Johnny replied; “My shirt fell.”

Mom said, “It sounded a lot heavier than that!”

Johnny replied, “I was in it.”

Have a great week.
