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.”
