Rumsey & District Register
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.

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.
