Rumsey & District Register
The Rumsey 4-H Beef club had their club level Public Speaking event this past Tuesday, February 23 and all 11 members did very well, making the judges think long and hard about the winners who would go onto Districts in Carbon this Saturday, March 5. At the Senior level, Brett Holowath took home first with Vanessa Richmond taking second. In the Intermediate group, Noel Kiemele came out on top with first and Amanda Holowath got 2nd. In Juniors, Ryley Mappin received first with his brother Brady celebrating second spot. There were also presentations as part of the evening and Corbyn Stoneman taking home first in Intermediate and his brother clearing first in Junior level. Congratulations to all the brave speakers and presenters that successfully got up and delivered a polished performance.
The Morrin High School Curling groups headed off to Zones on this past Friday and did very well. The young ladies team consisting of Katy Primrose, Amy Adams, Shelby Primrose and Kayla Adams came away with Gold and are heading off to Provincials in Ponoka with their coach Betty Primrose. Congratulations to them for doing so well. The boys had a little more of a tough time, they lost out in a tie breaker game in their pool so could not advance on in the competition. That team consisted of Brett Holowath, Jack Adams, Anthony Huxley and Bryce Kopjar and Coach Kent Holowath. There was no mixed team this year.
The Morrin Figure Skating Club went to a competition in Hanna called Highway 9 Skate Challenge. Our Rumsey skaters were Mattie Jensen, Tyler MacFarlane, Alyssa Wilkins, Karson Gridley, Kyra Gridley and Amanda Holowath. They all did well and had good experiences so congrats to them. They will be hosting their Carnival on Saturday, March 6 starting at 2 pm. Come out and enjoy.
The mixed Bonspiel will be starting next week so call Brooks and Jackie Watts if you are interested in signing up your team. There is always room for more.
The Rumsey Drop-in center will be having a meeting on this Thursday, March 3 at 10:00 a.m. to talk about what are the next steps to take with the Drop-In building so would love for all people interested to make a point of attending this meeting. Hope to see you there.
At St. Mary’s Lodge in Trochu, there have been a few birthdays in the past two months that I have neglected to mention. Thanks to Linda Helmer for passing on the information. In January, Cathy Wagstaff from Extended Care and Frank Smith from the Lodge celebrated their birthdays. In February, Jean Richmond hosted the birthday party with Bessie Fraser and Elmer Wik from Extended Care and Bernie Boyden from the Lodge celebrating another year. Bev Morgan will the be hostess for March and the party will be held on Monday, March 21. I hope you have a giggle and a great week. Mr. and Mrs. Brown had two sons. One was named Mind Your Own Business & the other was named Trouble. One day the two boys decided to play hide and seek. Trouble hid while Mind Your Own Business counted to one hundred. Mind Your Own Business began looking for his brother behind garbage cans and bushes. Then he started looking in and under cars until a police man approached him and asked, “What are you doing?” “Playing a game,” the boy replied. “What is your name?” the officer questioned. “Mind Your Own Business.” Furious the policeman inquired, “Are you looking for trouble?!” The boy replied, “Why, yes.”
