READ ALL ABOUT IT
If you run into the Mayor, make sure you compliment him on his relentless campaign through two governments and four, (or was that three?), Alberta premiers, for over 6 million dollars in money for a renewed attack on flood prevention in the valley. Have to compliment him on keeping up the quest on behalf of citizens, and, though we have to put up some of the funds ourselves, this will go a long way to helping this nagging problem of flood zones.
The Morrin Ag Society is holding a fundraising dance with one of our favorite bands the Chevelles at the BCF on Saturday, April 16th. They play some great music for all ages, and if you like to dance, they don't come any better. Plan to attend.
Ran into Daryll Romeo the other day and he was telling us the story of how Diane outsmarted him last summer.
Seems she was always nagging him to mow the lawn and she hit on a sneaky new way to annoy him. Daryll got home one afternoon and found her out cutting the grass herself with the new power mower. She was, in short, shaming him before the whole neighbourhood.
Furious, he took over and finished the job. When he put the mower away, he disconnected the spark plug so as to make sure Diane wouldn't be able to pull such a stunt a second time.
Several weeks went by and again he came home only to find her out mowing the lawn again.
"There was something wrong with the mower," she told him, "but I called a repair man and he fixed it. And he only charged $100.00."
Another date to note on your calendar is Saturday, April 9th, again at the BCF, for the Annual Golf Club
Dinner and Auction. Always a great evening, this is one of the club's major fundraisers, and people who go will dine on an excellent meal prepared by Chef Peter, and then get to bid on some great golf items, and lots of others not so golf related.
Don't really watch many Oscar nights, but was interested in host Chris Rock's opening monologue, and how he would handle the controversy that came about when no black actors were nominated in any category.
Rock is a masterful comedian in his own right, but although his shows are laced with profanity, he pulled off the MC's job in extraordinary fashion, and it almost seemed like the controversy gave him a whole new bunch of material. Very funny, and he made it work.
Also enjoyed the talent of Lady GaGa, introduced by U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden, and their combined effort to bring awareness about abused young people. Very moving, and such a performance by her. Many special moments, especially the appearance of
Buzz Lightyear and Woody, and three of the Minions.
Well done Hollywood.
