Support your Rumsey drop-in

Social events were at a minimum this week as farmers are still trying to get this year’s harvest in. However, several folks took time off to attend the fall supper held in Trochu on Friday, Oct. 29. Stan and Sheila were the lucky winners of one of the door prizes. Lucky, lucky.

Saturday, Nov. 6 is the Rumsey turkey supper from 5 to 7 in the community hall. Lots of good food and homemade pies. Tell your friends and families.

When you arrive home from the supper, be sure and turn your clocks back as daylight saving time ends at 2 am on Sunday morning.

The Remembrance Day service for the Morrin churches will be held in Morrin Community hall on Sunday, Nov. 7, at 10 a.m. with shared ministry of Pastor Skip McArthur of Morrin Bethany Lutheran Church and Rev. Mervyn Penfound of Morrin United Church. Please come and plan to stay for lunch and fellowship following the service.

Thursday, Nov.11, all are invited to come to the Rumsey Drop-in to take part in the Remembrance Day service in the morning. Plan to arrive before 11 a.m. Lunch and a time of remembering will follow the ceremonies.

Sympathy goes out this week to the family of Reg Nelson of Trochu. Reg was born and raised in this district and continued to farm here after moving to Trochu several years ago.Funeral services are set for Thursday, Nov. 4 at the Trochu Community Hall at 1:30 p.m.

Beginning in November, drop-in will be held on Thursdays of the week, with the exception of Nov. 4 which is the day of Reg’s funeral and Nov. 11, when the remembrance day ceremonies will take place.

Thursday, Nov. 25, the drop-in will be hosting a potluck dinner at 12 noon. Due to the timing of harvest, this will be a delayed Thanksgiving celebration and an early Christmas celebration. Plan to attend and support your local drop-in .

The Morrin United Church is taking part in “Operation Christmas Child” again this year and anyone wishing to put a box together is asked to do so by Nov. 15. Marilyn Trentham is the person to get in touch with if you have any questions.

She also has the boxes for packing. They are at the Morrin United Church.

Anyone looking for a puzzle to put together this winter is welcome to pick one up at the drop-in center as they are there for anyone to take. Maybe you have some you would like to share with others.

The date of the next birthday party at St. Mary’s in Trochu is Monday, Nov.15, when Elaine Wiesse wil be the hostess. Call her if you can come out to help.

Coming up soon is the Morrin Figure Skating Club’s fundraiser. This year, the club is bringing in the “Chevelles” from Lethbridge to entertain from 9-10 p.m. with dancing to follow until 1 a.m. There will be a midnight buffet. Call Jill at 368-3733 or Melanie at 772-0000,or Troy at 772-2165.

Tell your friends from the Munson area who may have moved away and won’t otherwise know about the planned Centennial Cookbook. Send recipies to Brenda Daly, Box 12, Drumheller. TOJ OY0.

Best wishes to John Griffith after his return home from hospital; must have a been a quick oil change or tires rotated because it didn’t take too long. See you at the fall supper, John.

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween and not too many stomach aches from all the candy.
