Rumsey Rowley 4-H Beef Club’s annual bottle drive on April 11

4-H members will be calling soon for donations, so get your bottles and batteries ready!

RUMSEY RECORD — It was easy to enjoy the spring-like conditions this weekend as the ground is drying up and the calves are arriving quickly day after day. I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine.

On Saturday, April 8, the Morrin Lions are inviting the public to celebrate their 25th anniversary as a club. They have booked the musical duo “The Great Plains” aka Saskia and Darrel. They will entertain the crowd with folk, country and Celtic music followed by some treats and fun. The whole family is invited to join in on the celebration. It will be held at the Morrin Hall. The Morrin Lions will also hold their annual Easter Ham Bingo on Wednesday, April 12 so add that to your calendars too.

The Ag Society’s Spring Fling is fast approaching with a steak supper offered up for everyone and a fun live auction of some very delicious desserts to buy. It is a great opportunity to support our local Ag Society and all the great things they do for the community, hall and curling rink. Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 15. Supper starts at 5 p.m., with live and silent auctions to follow.

Rumsey Rowley 4-H Beef Club annual bottle and battery drive is on Tuesday, April 11, and 4-H members will be calling soon for donations. If you do not get a call and have bottles or batteries you would like to donate please call Kent or Jill Holowath at 403-368-3733 and they will make sure a 4-Her comes and picks them up. Thank you to the community for their generous support to the 4-H club!

Here’s something to make you giggle:

Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 p.m. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the television.

The 10 p.m. news was on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump. The blonde looked at Jack and said, ‘Do you think he’ll jump?’ Jack says, ‘You know what, I bet he will.’ The blonde replied, ‘Well, I bet he won’t.’ Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, ‘You’re on!’

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, ‘Fair’s fair… Here’s your money.’ Jack replied, ‘I can’t take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o’clock news and knew he would jump.

‘The blonde replies, ‘I did too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.’

Jack took the money.

Have a great week.
