Mon­day, May 11, the day af­ter Mother’s Day, the ladies from the district trav­elled to Trochu to host the reg­u­lar monthly birth­day party at St. Mary’s Lodge and Ex­tended Care Cen­ter. Pat Hatt was the host­ess for this month and with her helpers served a de­li­cious birth­day cake to every­one fol­low­ing the en­ter­tain­ment. Ray Duft on gui­tar and his part­ner Bob Smith on ac­cor­dian, en­ter­tained with mu­sic and singing.

Those folks cel­e­brat­ing their May birthdays were; Elsie Painter, Sam­mie Samp­son, Bud Up­ton, Florence Clem­mins, Earl Gib­son, and Vi­o­let Robin­son. Each birth­day per­son re­ceived a small use­ful gift cour­tesy of the Rum­sey Ag. So­ci­ety who fund the gifts.

Every­one surely does en­joy the old time mu­sic. Even the folks who have real prob­lems with their mem­ory and such, will be tap­ping their toes and mov­ing their hands to the mu­sic.

The June party will be Mon­day, June 15, when Mar­ion Steikle and her group from Three Hills will be pro­vid­ing the en­ter­tain­ment. All are wel­come to come and help out the day of the party. It’s not a very hard job and is very re­ward­ing. Amongst the cold winds and ag­gra­vat­ing small rain show­ers this week, the farm­ers are try­ing to get the crops seeded. A real mois­ture dump would be ap­pre­ci­ated and needed but it’s not hap­pen­ing yet.

Chris Warner and his com­pan­ion Raeanne Halfkenny are plan­ning their wed­ding for the mid­dle of July and the com­mu­nity has set up a mon­e­tary col­lec­tion to hon­our this day. Gifts can be left with Car­rie Stone­man.

To­day, May 15, Stan and Sheila Rich­mond are away to Hanna to at­tend the grade 12 grad­u­a­tion cer­e­monies for their grand­son, Devon Wade, who is Su­san Rich­mond’s el­dest son. The grad­u­a­tion class is from the JC Charyk High School in Hanna.

Fri­day, June 5 is the Mor­rin High School grad­u­a­tion, with the ban­quet in the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity hall and the fes­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing the grand march will be in the school gym.

Some in­for­ma­tion has sur­faced as to the t-shirt from Patty’s Pub in Rum­sey. Ap­par­ently, the lady that owned the ho­tel at one time, not too long be­fore it burned down, had th­ese t-shirts made up for a give away for some func­tion. Sev­eral peo­ple in the district have them. Mys­tery Solved.

Church ser­vices in the Mor­rin United Church have been post­poned from May 17 to May 24. Please take note and tell oth­ers. The con­gre­ga­tion of the church are proud to say that the two fur­naces in the build­ing have now been re­placed and there is a new wa­ter heater in the kitchen. The units that were re­moved are now up for grabs, per­haps for a ma­chine shed or any other build­ing that needs a lit­tle heat. Call Char­lie at 403-772-3955 for more in­for­ma­tion.

Get well wishes to hospi­tal pa­tients, John Grif­fith and Lenord Steen who con­tinue their stay in the Drumheller hospi­tal.
