Rum­sey & District Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

What warm weather we have been hav­ing lately. I was vis­it­ing with a friend last week and she said the last time that she re­mem­bers a win­ter like this was 18 years ago when they were build­ing their house so I guess ev­ery­thing has its cy­cles. Makes you won­der what next win­ter will bring (but I am get­ting ahead of my­self).

The fam­ily of James Hussey Sr. asked me to let the com­mu­nity know that Big Jim, as he was af­fec­tion­ately known, has ended his long strug­gle with ill­ness on March 1 in the Red Deer Hos­pi­tal. He will be missed by his wife, Al­lie and large fam­ily of chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. There will be no fu­neral. The fam­ily may de­cide later to have a pri­vate me­mo­rial but at this time there are no plans.

I know it is a lit­tle early to let peo­ple know but the Rum­sey-Row­ley 4-H Beef Club is plan­ning their Bot­tle and Bat­tery drive for April 12. They will be call­ing around the com­mu­nity prior to that date to do their col­lec­tions. If you have any bot­tles or bat­ter­ies that you would like cleared out any time be­fore the 12th, I am sure a 4-H-er would love to come and pick them up. You can call Kent and Jill Holowath and they can set some­thing up – 403-368-3733.

The Mor­rin Lions are spon­sor­ing free hot choco­late and cook­ies at Pub­lic Skat­ing in the Mor­rin Arena next Satur­day, March 13 from 2 to 4 p.m. It will soon be time to let the ice go in the dif­fer­ent are­nas around the area so you best get in that last skate soon. They will also be host­ing an Easter Ham Bingo at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall on Wed­nes­day, March 23. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

The Mixed Bon­spiel in Rum­sey started on Mon­day night of this week with 21 teams en­tered. Don’t for­get about the Oys­ter Night Ex­trav­a­ganza on Thurs­day night, you can en­joy Oys­ters, Steak or both with a baked potato, salad, gar­lic bread and all the fix­ings. Come early for it is the last one of the sea­son. There is also the ban­quet on Satur­day night open to all the com­mu­nity and, of course, the con­ces­sion is open all week with home­made soups and desserts on of­fer plus good curl­ing to watch.

The Rum­sey Drop-In had a good meet­ing last Thurs­day and lots of de­ci­sions were made, mo­tions car­ried and new coun­cil was ap­pointed. The big­gest de­ci­sion that was made was to go ahead and fix the roof as the build­ing still has lots of use in the com­mu­nity as a nice op­tion for host­ing smaller par­ties/meet­ings that may be too big for a per­sons’ home and too small to rent the larger hall or curl­ing rink at a very rea­son­able rate of $50 a day. We are hop­ing the work on the roof will get started this spring as the dam­age is only get­ting worse.

There will be a Hor­ti­cul­tural Work­shop on Satur­day, April 16 at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­tre with guest speak­ers Jim Hole and Tim Schowal­ter. Jim Hole is Al­berta’s Top Hor­ti­cul­tual Au­thor­ity and he will be pre­sent­ing on “Gar­den Myths”. Tim Schowal­ter is our Lo­cal Nat­u­ral His­tory Au­thor­ity. Pre-reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired by April 8 and lunch is in­cluded. This will be a great way to get your green thumb warmed up. To reg­is­ter con­tact: Pat at 403-321-0210 or Toni at 403-321-0061. I hope you get a chuckle to brighten your day; Teacher: “If I gave you 2 cats and an­other 2 cats and an­other 2, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Seven.” Teacher: “No, lis­ten care­fully... If I gave you two cats, and an­other two cats and an­other two, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Seven.” Teacher: “Let me put it to you dif­fer­ently. If I gave you two ap­ples, and an­other two ap­ples and an­other two, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Six.” Teacher: “Good. Now if I gave you two cats, and an­other two cats and an­other two, how many would you have?” Johnny: “Seven!” Teacher: “Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!” Johnny: “Be­cause I’ve al­ready got a cat!”

Have a great week!
