Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Darcy Gra­ham 403-772-3747

Hey, we did it...we made it through Jan­uary...had a few chilly, snowy days along the way but it sure ended on a nice warm note with the Chi­nook blow­ing through last snow on the of­ten does that hap­pen in Jan­uary?

And it is of course Valen­tine’s month and that means the Mor­rin Lions are set to serve up a de­li­cious com­mu­nity break­fast to all at the Hall 9-noon on Sun­day, the ac­tual Hearts day, Fe­bru­ary 14. They will take up a col­lec­tion that morn­ing and gen­er­ously do­nate it to the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion...thank-you thankyou.

Also, I an­nounced last week that there will be a “cre­ative week­end” com­ing up at the end of the month Fe­bru­ary 26 – 28 so, time to get out your crafts and quilts and cre­ate away and en­joy the meals to­gether which will be pro­vided with reg­is­tra­tion. Marj (403772-3814) is field­ing calls for those who are in­ter­ested in sign­ing up. They plan to set up ei­ther at the Bloom­ing Prairies Se­niors Drop-In Cen­ter or the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall de­pend­ing on how many folks de­cide to come out. It is cer­tainly not my forte but my lit­tle daugh­ter loves to sew and we are ex­tremely grate­ful for the lo­cal 4H multi-club and the sewing group that meets ev­ery other Thurs­day af­ter school. What a great op­por­tu­nity for our kids to em­brace this prac­ti­cal skill and tackle sewing projects un­der the watch­ful eyes and help­ing hands of vol­un­teer in­struc­tors Diana Wolf and Suzie Lacher. This Thurs­day they are plan­ning a field trip to the sewing store in Drumheller where the kids will have some time to browse and find some ma­te­rial or fash­ion fab­ric and ac­ces­sories for their pro­ject and later, en­joy some pizza to­gether... sounds like fun to me. Thanks for putting the time and ef­fort into teach­ing our kids... much ap­pre­ci­ated ladies! And just a shout out to all the 4H or­ga­niz­ers and vol­un­teers who help run the dif­fer­ent clubs... small en­gines, sewing, equine, ca­nine, pho­tog­ra­phy, rock band and cleavers.

And some more good things hap­pen­ing this month...the new se­mes­ter has be­gun for high school stu­dents and mid month break this year for all will be Fe­bru­ary 15 – 19...good chance to plan a lit­tle get­away or just hang out and re­lax. And as I read on through the school news­let­ter, I thought hey, this is pretty newsy.

Mr. Rau­gust re­ports that the CTS trailer will soon be on its way to Delia. They have made the most of it and have com­pleted many qual­ity projects. The group ex­tends a big thank you to the Pat Wil­son fam­ily for pro­vid­ing both tools and ma­te­rial. And also to Matthew McNaughton who spent count­less hours and lend­ing his time and skill to work on a CNC ma­chine. He has at­tended SAIT since he grad­u­ated 2 years ago and last spring he was able to sort out the pro­gram­ming dif­fi­cul­ties to get the ma­chine op­er­a­tional...way to go Matthew!

And many of you know the Mor­rin School has held a fundraiser valen­tine tea for many years. Pub­lic at­ten­dance hasn’t been as strong of late, so or­ga­niz­ers did some brain­storm­ing and de­cided to change it up a bit and in­stead of the tea, put on a Cul­tural about that! This ex­cit­ing new school event will hap­pen later in the spring...per­haps May or early June. Dur­ing the evening, you will get to see a drama show and take part in both a live and silent auc­tion. The cul­tural part of the evening will give stu­dents a chance to dis­play their tal­ents in theatre, cook­ing, art and wood­work­ing and the pub­lic will be in­vited to bid on the items the stu­dents have cre­ great is that! And, that is and choco­late to you...cheers!
