Rumsey area skating, curling and more set to go

Rumsey/Rowley 4-H also getting their calves in a row

Submitted by Patty Steen Rumsey Record

The harvesters took a much welcomed break this past Thursday with the arrival of rain. This rain finally took the pressure off the fear of fire everywhere. Even in the west part of our province where fire was threatening home, the rain and snow damped the ground slowing down the advance of fires from British Columbia and Waterton park. I have to say, I hope we get more before it turns dry again.

As with the start of school there is also the start of many different clubs and organizations. The Morrin Figure Skating Club is getting going and looking for children interested in joining in. Registration night will be this Thursday, September 21 going from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. We offer pre-school, Can-Skate and Star-Skate programs. Jill Holowath will take calls from interested parents, her number is 403-368-3733.

Rumsey Ag Society Curling will be starting up around the first weekend of November with Super League being the first to step on the ice and all other groups shortly after, Open League, Ladies, Juniors, Seniors. If any of these groups sound right to you, you can contact Brooks and Jackie Watts for more information. We are always looking for more curlers to make it more fun.

The Rumsey/Rowley 4-H Beef club will have their organizational meeting during the last week of October. Jill and Kent Holowath are the people to contact for more info on that group at 403-368-3733. Keep this in mind as you are rounding up your groups from pasture and trailing home those big cows and calves. The Morrin Multi-Club will also be starting up on Monday, October 2 at the Morrin School starting at 7 p.m. This club offers many opportunities to explore your child’s interests so if you are interested, contact Melanie Nelson at 403-772-0000. Currently the club offers Equine, Canine, Photography, Band, Cleavers for ages 6 to 8 years of age and Welding. If you have an interest and can find a leader then Melanie would be happy to explore the idea of a new group with you.

The Fall Supper will be held on the first Saturday of November which is the 4th this year. Make sure you mark your calendar of this date as it is always a fun event after a long fall of harvesting.

The Rumsey Christmas Market will be held on Saturday, November 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this year. It is still in the planning stages so the organizers are looking for vendors to come to the market. Contact Claire Krywcum at 403-321-0080 or Baylee Nelson 403-443-8384 if you are interested in showcasing your wares.
