Skating club fundraiser dinner is this weekend

Linda Helmer stopped in at the library to let me know that the St. Mary's Birthday club celebrated one birthday in November.

Linda Helmer stopped in at the library to let me know that the St. Mary’s Birthday club celebrated one birthday in November. It was Lorrane Robertson’s from Extended Care. Elaine Weisse hosted. In December, there will be a small change of date, Dariel McNaughton will be hosting the party on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at St. Mary’s lodge; so if you would like to help out, don’t forget the date change.

The Rumsey Library 2016 calendar is available now for sale. It is a beautiful collection of local pictures to enjoy all year round.

The Morrin Figure Skating Club is hosting a Spuds and Sundaes fundraiser this Saturday night, Nov. 28, and it will be a delicious meal. After the meal, the figure skating club has arranged for your entertainment, six or eight different acts including singers, bands, dancers, gymnists, silent auction items to bid on and, of course, the bar will be open. Tickets are cheap.

Laverne Bremer asked me to let everyone know that the Bremer clan will be celebrating Al and Eleanor Bremer’s 60th wedding anniversary at the Morrin Hall on Dec. 5 from 1 to 4 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

The Morrin girls had a very successful weekend at zones volleyball tournament, so they are off to provincials this coming week from Wednesday to Saturday in Fairview. If you happen to see Kyria and Karson Gridley, Quinn Nelson, Shelbey and Katie Primrose, Amy Adams, Nicole Sharpe and Mesha Olsen, wish them luck on their next adventure. For a team of eight players, that is quite the accomplishment.

The boys also played their volleyball zones this past weekend in Banff. Since they didn’t have any seniors, they competed as a junior team and had some good games but couldn’t quite pull off a spot in provincial play. Better luck next time, boys.

The junior curling will be starting this Wednesday and you can still enter if you want by contacting Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403-368-2357. The Tuesday afternoon drop-in curling is also started and it is open to everyone who would like to get in more practice, learn the game or just get a bit of exercise. It starts at 1 p.m. every Tuesday.

The Morrin Lions Santa Breakfast is happening on Sunday, Dec. 6 starting at 9 with Santa expected to arrive by 10 or 10:30. He has a pretty busy schedule, so it is so nice of him to take some time to zip down to Morrin for a visit. One of the advantages of living close to the North Pole, I guess. The Morrin Lions are accepting donations of cash or food for the Food Bank on that day.

I would like to wish Amanda Holowath a belated birthday, I heard that it was Tuesday and she has discovered the fact that as you get closer to adulthood, the less likely it is that you can take the day off from everything to celebrate your favorite day. She was complaining to her mom that with school, junior curling and a 4-H meeting all on Tuesday, when would they even take time to celebrate her birthday?

Have a great week.
