Spring Fling can’t come soon enough for winter-worn residents

Well, wasn’t that a pleasant weekend. How did you make out in the winter storm?

Well, wasn’t that a pleasant weekend. How did you make out in the winter storm? Let’s hope the Spring Fling this weekend is really a reason to celebrate. It starts at 5 p.m., with supper and auctions to follow.

Minor ball is in the air. Kent Holowath stopped in to let me know he is taking registrations for all ages from ECS to 18 years old, or Coach Pitch to midget ages.

He wants to start practices the first week in May and is also looking for coaches and managers for each age group. Give him a call at 403-368-3733.

The Morrin 4-H Multi-Club hosts its achievement day April 27 at the Morrin Hall, starting at 2 p.m. Come and see what the children have built this year. The projects are varied — from small engines and sewing to photography.

The Multi-Club would also like to put out the word that they are collecting Co-op till tapes as a fundraiser. Glenda and Serena will gladly collect any you have at the Spring Fling this coming weekend.

All Co-op till tapes that they collect and hand in will generate them a donation. Our Rumsey kids involved in this club are Serena Michie and Levi Hampton.

Helen Steen would like to pass on that all volunteers at St. Mary’s are invited to the appreciation tea on May 2 at 2 p.m. at Trochu Baptist Fellowship Centre. Please RSVP by April 25.

Also, come to Trochu’s St. Mary’s Strawberry Tea and Bake Sale on April 20 to be held at the lodge, starting at 2 p.m.

This is great way to support the extracurricular activities that the residents partake in.

Our local radio station, 1580 on the AM dial, is willing to promote any Rumsey news that is upcoming. If you’re interested in listening to old-time radio drama shows while you work away the day, and if you’re lucky enough to be within the 10-mile radius, tune in and see what it is all about.

The Rumsey Community Library has its annual book sale, so stop in and pick up some great books, in great shape, for only a buck a book. There are lots to sort through.
