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!
