Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

Hey there! The sun is shin­ing, it’s a beau­ti­ful Mon­day morn­ing as I write and spring is just around the cor­ner...less than a week away. Lots to smile about...lots to be grate­ful for. We have had quite an amaz­ing win­ter but re­ally look­ing for­ward to get­ting back out­side. Our fam­ily has been hit hard with the flu over the last two weeks...even Dr. Bob who hardly ever gets sick...so let’s hope all those flu bugs just get blown away with the winds and warmth of spring.

So on with the news...with spring soon to come Mor­rin, school kids will be out to do a cleanup around town. And while you are think­ing about what to throw away, re­mem­ber the 4H Multi-club will be around to pick up all your re­cy­clables. Their pickup drive will be in April so you have time to save up bot­tles, cans, plas­tic milk jugs and elec­tron­ics. This fundrais­ing drive helps the club a lot and they spend a whole day sort­ing ev­ery­thing after­ward and that will be at the Nelson farm on April 16.

And Easter is com­ing which means the Mor­rin Lions will be host­ing their an­nual Ham Bingo night be­gin­ning at 6:00 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, March 23 at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall.

Also the Mor­rin Bethany Lutheran Church plans to cel­e­brate this up­com­ing Palm Sun­day, March 20 by mak­ing break­fast for you...how great is that! So come for break­fast and stay for the ser­vice if you wish. Food will be served at the church this Sun­day morn­ing from 9-10:30 a.m. and ev­ery­one is wel­come.

So, that is it for to­day...it has been a good win­ter weather-wise but not so great for all the peo­ple out of work and los­ing work con­tracts in our prov­ince. Some folks from our Mor­rin com­mu­nity area at­tended the grass-roots rally for “Al­ber­tans First” at the Ed­mon­ton Leg­is­la­ture last Tues­day. We had a con­voy of buses that drove to Ed­mon­ton from Mor­rin, Hanna and Stet­tler and there were many other con­voys just like ours. I hope the Al­berta NDP Govern­ment pays at­ten­tion to the 180,000 sig­na­tures that were brought to them on be­half of oil work­ers, farm­ers and fam­i­lies. Rachel Not­ley once said that she would no­tice 500 that marched in protest. We had sev­eral thou­sand who gath­ered and waited in the cold last Tues­day as the Al­berta govern­ment met to be­gin their spring ses­sion. The mo­tor­cade ar­rived in all its pomp and cir­cum­stance and the Premier chose to take a dif­fer­ent way into the build­ing. She did not ap­pear. We are still un­der Bri­tish Monar­chy and if the NDP and Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nor ig­nore us, maybe the Queen will lis­ten to our plea. Keep plug­ging Al­ber­tans...never give up, never sur­ren­der! And hey...we kept the Scot­ties and Tim Hor­ton’s Brier tro­phies in Al­berta! Cheers!
