STARS reps among those to remember Woods

.

RUMSEY

Last Monday afternoon, women travelled to Trochu to host the monthly birthday party at St. Mary’s Health Care Centre.

Linda Helmer was the hostess this month and “Memory Lane” group from Three Hills was on hand to supply the music. There was just one person celebrating her birthday this month — Ida Sydness. Congratulations.

The October birthday party will be Monday, Oct. 17, when Lois Kiemele will be the hostess. Ray Duft plans to be on hand to sing and play music for the group.

Ernie and I were among the many folks that gathered at the Big Valley Jubilee hall Monday afternoon to honour Shirley Woods’ life. She was a dearly loved lady and had many of her 4-H members in attendance to recognize her work in 4-H circles.

Two women from STARS, Pamela Urlander and Wanda Freeborn, travelled from the Calgary office to honour Shirley for all the work she did in support of STARS over the years.

The Morrin 4-H multi-club will hold an informational meeting at the Morrin school Monday, Oct. 7, at 7:30 p.m.

Youth who will be nine years old by Dec. 31 can become members. The club hopes to offer small engines, sewing, photography and possibly food and crafts projects this year.

Suggestions and ideas for other projects are always welcome, too. There is no obligation to become a member at this meeting, so just come and check it out.

You can also find out more about 4-H online at 4h.ca.ab, or call Gwen Hampton on evenings and weekends at 368-2169.

I would also like to hear about the Rumsey-Rowley 4-H beef club plans.

This has been quite a week, weather-wise. It’s very hot weather in the afternoons and really chilly at night. Combines, swathers, balers, you name it, it’s running. Harvesting is in full swing.

The magazine sale for the Morrin School began Sept. 19 and winds up after Thanksgiving. Everyone is invited to either renew their present subscriptions or purchase new ones. The money raised from this fundraiser goes to fund cultural events at the school, author visits, guest presentations, a travelling art show and busing for sporting events.

Students will be visiting throughout the area, or if you wish, you can contact any student of the school.

The next service in the Morrin United Church will be Sunday, Oct. 2, with Rev. Mervyn and Marilyn Penfound from Stettler leading the service.
