Santa breakfast this weekend

Thanks to a return to the sunny days, this winter is pretty easy to work our way through.

Thanks to a return to the sunny days, this winter is pretty easy to work our way through. Don’t forget to participate in the Elks Turkey Bingo tonight in Rumsey at the Hall and next Wednesday in Big Valley. Both bingos start at 7 p.m.

There are a couple fun events coming this weekend to take part in. Al and Eleanor Bremer are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary at the Morrin Hall on Dec. 5 from 1 to 4 p.m. Everyone is welcome. On Sunday, Dec. 6, starting at 9 a.m., the Morrin Lions are hosting a Santa breakfast and they are expecting Santa to drop in around 10, so you and your little ones don’t want to miss out on that. They are accepting donations of cash or food for the food bank.

The Rumsey Ag Society’s annual meeting is fast approaching. It will be held on Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. and they are still looking for one or two new members to sign up on the board. Everyone is welcome to attend.

It’s a short news week, so I’ll give you a good joke to enjoy, have a great week:

A lawyer’s dog, running about unleashed, beelines for the local butcher shop and steals a roast off the counter.

The butcher goes to the lawyer’s office and asks, “If a dog, running unleashed, steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?” “Absolutely,” the lawyer responded.

The butcher immediately shot back, “Good! You owe me $7.99 for the roast your dog stole from me this morning.”

The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $7.99. A few days later, the butcher, browsing through his mail, finds an envelope from the lawyer.

The contents read

“Consultation: $25.00.”
