Rumsey history book to be updated

I hope all the mothers out there had a nice relaxing day on this past Sunday.

I hope all the mothers out there had a nice relaxing day on this past Sunday. Now you can get ready for the long weekend coming up. May’s long weekend is so unpredictable as far as weather goes, but it is always nice to get out the camper and enjoy the first campfire of the year.

Dariel McNaughton called me to pass on the news that the Rumsey/Rowley Historical Society would like to see a revival happen. It has been 32 years since the big red book was published and I know quite a few people have mentioned that it is time for another addition. So with that in mind, anyone in the Rumsey-Rowley area that is interested in helping with an up-to-date book of history, continuing from the 1982 PIONEER DAYS history book, there will be a meeting on Wednesday, May 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Rumsey Agriplex. A committee and editor needs to be chosen. If you are interested, please attend the meeting or contact Dariel McNaughton at 403 368 2120. This would be a great project for lots of people to get involved with so give it some thought and attend the meeting to find out what you can do.

Alyse Burnett and Devon Sawnson’s shower will take place on Friday, May 23, at 7:30 p.m. at the community hall. Alyse is daughter to Lindsay and Shirley Burnett. What wonderful news, another wedding in the community, their nuptials will take place on July 12, 2014. So don’t forget to attend the shower.

The Rumsey Connection Golf Tournament will take place this year on Thursday, June 12, shot gun start at 5 p.m., so be early. Dariel McNaughton at 403-368-2120 and Elaine Weisse at 403-368-2225 will be taking entries, so don’t procrastinate because it will fill up fast.

Keep in mind the Rumsey Library is planning a community garage sale on the Saturday at the end of the month of May. We are looking for more people to bring their things in, so give me a call to book a table. Also the Rumsey Drop-in members will be selling chili and a bun at lunchtime on that day at the Agriplex so come in and support it all. Remember, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

I thought I would also pass on that the deadline for the Cattle Price Insurance program through Growing Forward II and AFSC is fast approaching. It is May 29 for this year, so if you want to find out more about this new safe guard contact your local AFSC rep for more information. It is tough with so much going on in the spring to remember all the deadlines and programs that might work for your operation.

My joke of the week was a contribution from my son and his co-workers, so enjoy:

What did the grape say when the elephant stepped on it? He let out a little wine.
