Rumsey-Rowley club hosts 4-H show

.

Rumsey Record

The week started off a very busy one for all the 4-H members as Monday, June 6th was the annual show and sale. The Rumsey-Rowley club was the host club this year so everyone was even more busy. The afternoon banquet held in the Delia hall after the show was catered to by “Country Cookers” who are our own Mary and Doris and helpers. The roast beef supper was delicious.

Members of the club having female projects were; Jorden Ferguson, Garrett Holowath, Brett Holowath, Lowell Nelson, Samantha Richmond, Tiffany Richmond,and Rachel Robinson. All these members also had steer projects along with Justine Johnson, Mickey Johnson, Morgan Lawerence, Bradley Nelson, Erica Nelson, Quinn Nelson,Mesha Olsen Clayton Steen and Russell Steen.

The Rumsey-Rowley club did very well, taking the grand and reserve championship as well as grooming and showmanship. Jorden Ferguson had the highest rate of gain with her calf gaining 3.4 lbs. per day on average on the days on feed. Congratulations to all the winners and to all others who had projects as well.

Tuesday, June 7, members of the Rumsey Drop-in travelled to Delia to attend the Senior’s Appreciation Tea. This was sponsored by the FCSS (Family and Community Support Services) and the county of Starland. These are the groups that the Drop-in Center was able to obtain grants that allowed us to put in the new furnaces and new hot water heater.

FCSS was launched in January 2010 and is a funded partnership between the province and municipality that develops locally driven preventive social initiatives to enhance the well being of individuals, families and communities.

Members of FCSS plan to visit the Rumsey Drop-in soon as they were excited to know that we had obtained our grant and that the work was already completed.

On June 23, the Morrin ECS will be having their orientation. Any child who will be five years old by December 31 is more than welcome to attend. The time is from 8:45 – 11:30am at the Morrin School.

Friday, June 17 the Morrin School is having a volunteers luncheon at the school for anyone who has every volunteered in any way at the school. The time is 11:45 to 12:45. Please call the office at the school 772-3838 to RSVP.

The final church service prior to the summer break will be held in the Morrin United Church on Sunday, June 19th. at 10:30 a.m. when Rev. Harold and Amy Hunter will be doing the service. Everyone is invited to come to the service and stay for the pot-luck luncheon that will follow the service. There will be no services over the two summer months.

Several folks from here took in the “Relay For Life “ held in Drumheller on June 10th doing the survivor’s walk. . The weather was very cooperative with just enough breeze to keep the mosquitoes at bay.
