Survey going on for new seniors’ facility

I am sure the community is fully into spring calving and so there are babies in the fields nearby most farm yards, don't they look cute?

RUMSEY RECORD — I am sure the community is fully into spring calving and so there are babies in the fields nearby most farm yards, don’t they look cute? I hope the weather is as warm as it has been since January but I am sure we will get a storm or two before May is over.

I don’t know how well the first week of minor ball registration went, but I hope some people got talking about it and we will soon see kids on the diamonds in Rumsey getting a little practice in. It would be good to have a few teams in town. If you didn’t get a chance to call Sandy McNaughton last week, let her know that you are interested so she can add your child’s name to the list.

The Rumsey 4-H Beef club will be calling around to collect bottles and batteries in the next two weeks as they plan to have everything collected by their April meeting date of Tuesday the 12th.

Audrey Nelson sent me some news about exploring the idea of a new seniors’ independent/long-term care facility in Trochu. A very dedicated group around Trochu and the larger surrounding area are striving to provide a new facility that would support seniors to live independently after they choose to retire from their homes. We are convinced that we really do have a need for a facility such as we are planning. So, therefore, we would appreciate everyone completing the survey we have compiled to get feedback on this issue. There are several locations in Trochu that have the survey available, plus Audrey Nelson, Dariel McNaughton, Tammy and David Webster and in town the library. Once you have completed the survey, please return it to the location or person you got it from. Please include at the bottom or back side of the survey the name of your town or county so we can get an idea of how broad of an area this facility will be servicing. Feel free to call Audrey at 403-442-2545 if you have any further questions.

The Rumsey drop-in has started a collection for their roof repair fund at the post office. Karrie is taking care of it there, so a big thank you to her for that. We hope to get started on it soon to avoid more spring rains leaking through.

The next event on the calendar for the Rumsey Ag society will be the spring fling on April 16. This is always a lot of fun because of the dessert auction so don’t forget to attend.

Enjoy a giggle and a good week;

A farmer is walking with a prospective buyer when they see a beautiful pig in the yard, except it has a wooden leg. The buyer asks, “Why the wooden leg?” The farmer replies, “That pig is so smart, I let it drive the kids to school.”

“Great, but why the wooden leg?”

“The pig is so smart it has a degree in horticulture and philosophy.”

“Amazing! But why the bloody wooden leg?”

“Well when you have a pig that smart you don’t eat it all at once!”
