Ladies Bonspiel underway this week in Rumsey

Morrin Lions Club planning ‘Heart and Stroke’ event February 11

By Patty Steen Rumsey Record

The Ladies Bonspiel is underway at the curling rink this week and there will be some good curling to enjoy if you happen to wander that way. The concession is also in full swing with homemade soup and pies every day, oyster night on Thursday evening and the banquet on Saturday night which is always open to everyone not just the curlers. Come and join in on the fun as Norton and the Nerds will be providing entertainment after the supper to get you up and dancing. It should be a fun night.

February is Heart and Stroke month so if you would like to support this cause and get a delicious pancake breakfast as part of the deal, join the Morrin Lions Club on Sunday, February 11th from 9 a.m. to noon for their fundraiser at the Morrin Hall. All proceeds from this event will go towards the Heart and Stroke foundation. Additional donations are welcome and receipts will be issued for any donations over $20.

The 4-H Beef club will be having their second weigh day soon at the Holowath farm so good luck to all the kids and their calves, I hope those calves are getting quieter and will lead onto that scale like a favorite pet. The children are also preparing for that dreaded event, 4-H public speaking! I know our kids never got too excited about this day but then it paid off big as they had to do more public speaking as they grew older. It is good to get the nerves out of the way when you are young. The public speaking will be held at the Rumsey Hall on February 18 starting at 1:30 p.m.

Elaine and Warren Weisse are pleased to announce the arrival, on January 22, of another wonderful grandson, Jace Anderson Weisse to their son Paul and his wife, Karen. He weighed 7lbs 11 oz and big sister Natalie is thrilled. Congratulations to all the Weisse’s and their continuously growing family. What is a wonderful blessing.

And finally, I hope you get a chuckle out of this:

A blond and a brunette are skydiving. The brunette jumps out of the plane and pulls the cord – nothing happens. She pulls the emergency cord and still nothing happens. The blonde finally jumps out of the plane and yells “Oh! So you want to race, huh?”

Have a great week.
