Hey there...must be­gin to­day with a “hat’s off ” to the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Club for putting on a fan­tas­tic show on ice this past Sun­­ally, re­ally good! It was a fun, colorful “car­toon crazy” pro­gram and as cus­tom­ary was heartily at­tended by the com­mu­nity. Job well done skaters and helpers and also it is just such a nice thing to have our con­ces­sion run­ning on a reg­u­lar ba­sis thanks to the Benci fam­ all around great af­ter­noon! And an­other re­ally nice thing I would like to men­tion is that I saw sev­eral Mor­rin School teach­ers who came out to sup­port their stu­dents and lots and lots of kids cheer­ing on their class­mates... pretty cool lit­tle cor­ner of the world we live in.

And some other ex­cit­ing ice news...I no­ticed on the Mor­rin School face­book page that the Mor­rin girls high school curl­ing team re­cently won the pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onship...yay! Way to go girls! Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the play­ers and coach... you make your school and com­mu­nity proud. The boys did very well too. Curl­ing has be­come an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar sport and wouldn’t it be neat to see some of our kids get into Ju­niors down the road and watch them some­day on TV...go for it! Our young teams are show­ing how skilled and com­pet­i­tive they are at the win­ter sport...keep it up.

So, mov­ing on to Mor­rin Lions news...the group will spon­sor pub­lic skat­ing this com­ing Sun­day March 13 from 2-4 p.m. at the Mor­rin Arena and they will have hot choco­late and cook­ies on hand to share with ev­ery­one. Then later in the month on Wed­nes­day, March 23, they will host the an­nual Easter Ham Bingo at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall be­gin­ning at 6:00 p.m.

And a bit of Mor­rin Li­brary­ager Carla has some used DVD’s and pa­per­back books to un­load for a buck apiece if you want to check that out. Also for par­ents and kids who need a fun out­ing, she has a won­der­ful kids room in the back with a va­ri­ety of read­ing ma­te­rial and a few toys. She is hop­ing to run story time for lit­tle ones in the af­ter­noons so moms and dads come on down. You may call her at 403-772-3922 to find out times. The Mor­rin Li­brary is open Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day from noon-6 p.m. and if you pur­chase a sin­gle or fam­ily mem­ber­ship you have ac­cess to movies, e-books, books, com­put­ers, pe­ri­od­i­cals, print­ers, fax ma­chine, mu­sic and more.

So, we still have the white snowy signs of win­ter around but it def­i­nitely is warm­ing up and melt­ing and feel­ing more ‘springy.’ My hus­band Bob and daugh­ter Charly got out­side to­gether on Satur­day af­ter­noon and spent a cou­ple of hours chip­ping away the sun-soft­ened ice on our front side­walk...good job you two...looks great!

And lastly, a heads up to ev­ery­one that the hard­work­ing, con­sci­en­tious 4H multi club mem­bers will be out in full force in April to col­lect re­cy­clables so please save your bot­tles, cans, plas­tic milk jugs etc. And, that is all I have for to­day...cheers!
