Spring Fling is next month

What a snowstorm, I hope you didn’t get stuck out in it.


What a snowstorm, I hope you didn’t get stuck out in it. It will provide the land with a lot of much needed moisture, so is very welcome.

It is with such sadness that I pass on the news of Doris (Pennock) Cawiezel’s funeral last Friday. She passed away on March 15 at the young age of 64 years, after a yearlong battle with cancer. She leaves behind her husband, Lorry, three sons, Craig, Lyle and Lee with their families, many extended family members as well as all of our community who knew her to be a real contributor to all that was going on in and around Rumsey.

It will be sad not to see her smiling face at every function from now on, I can only extend our sympathies to the family.

The Cawiezel family would like to encourage anyone who would like to make a donation in Doris’s name to donate to the Rumsey Hall Kitchen Fund. You will receive a tax deduction for your efforts and you can give it to any Ag Society member, but Kendra will be the best.

The Ag Society will be hosting the annual Spring Fling on April 18. Supper will run from 5 to 7 with the live and silent auctions to follow. There are always delicious desserts up for offer so you don’t want to miss out on this event.

The prize committee members will be calling around soon to different community people to see who would like to make those wonderful creations for this year, if you haven’t been on their list for a year or two, you might be up for one this year.

The Historical Society is busy at work getting the stories collected, so if you haven’t submitted one yet, hurry and get it together you don’t want to miss out on a chance to get your story in. If you are having trouble putting the words to paper, stop by the library on Wednesdays and I would love to help you with it. Remember the deadline is June 30, which isn’t very far away and the busy-ness of spring might get in your way.

I will wrap things up this week with something to lighten the mood, enjoy:

In the backwoods of Arkansas, Mr. Stewart’s wife went into labor in the middle of the night. The doctor was called in to assist in the delivery.

To keep the nervous father-to-be busy, the doctor handed him a lantern and said, “Here, you hold this high so I can see what I’m doing.” Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world.

“Don’t be in a rush to put the lantern down. I think there’s yet another wee one to come.” Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered another baby.

“Now don’t be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern, young man. It seems there’s yet another!” cried the doctor.

The new father scratched his head in bewilderment and asked the doctor. “Do ya think it’s the light that’s attractin’ them?”

Have a good week.
