Morrin Community Calendar
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 week...no snow on the deck...how 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 Night...how 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 created...how great is that! And, that is all...love and chocolate to you...cheers!
