Rum­sey & District Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

I am sure the com­mu­nity is fully into spring calv­ing and so there are ba­bies in the fields nearby most farm yards, don’t they look cute! I hope the weather is as warm as it has been since Jan­uary but I am sure we will get a storm or two be­fore May is over.

I don’t know how well the first week of mi­nor ball reg­is­tra­tion went but I hope some peo­ple got talk­ing about it and we will soon see kids on the di­a­monds in Rum­sey get­ting a lit­tle prac­tice in. It would be good to have a few teams in town. If you didn’t get a chance to call Sandy McNaughton last week let her know that you are in­ter­ested so she can add your childs’ name to the list.

The Rum­sey 4-H Beef Club will be call­ing around to col­lect bot­tles and bat­ter­ies in the next two weeks as they plan to have ev­ery­thing col­lected by their April meet­ing date of Tues­day the 12th.

Au­drey Nelson sent me some news about ex­plor­ing the idea of a new se­niors in­de­pen­dent/long-term care fa­cil­ity in Trochu. A very ded­i­cated group around Trochu and the larger sur­round­ing area are striv­ing to pro­vide a new fa­cil­ity that would sup­port Se­niors to live in­de­pen­dently af­ter they choose to re­tire from their homes. We are con­vinced that we re­ally do have a need for a fa­cil­ity such as we are plan­ning. So, there­fore, we would ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery­one com­plet­ing the sur­vey we have com­piled to get feed­back on this is­sue. There are sev­eral lo­ca­tions in Trochu that have the sur­vey avail­able plus Au­drey Nelson, Dariel McNaughton, Tammy and David Web­ster and in town at the li­brary. Once you have com­pleted the sur­vey, please re­turn it to the lo­ca­tion or per­son you got it from. Please in­clude at the bot­tom or back side of the sur­vey the name of your town or county so we can get an idea of how broad of an area this fa­cil­ity will be ser­vic­ing. Feel free to call Au­drey at 403-442-2545 if you have any fur­ther ques­tions.

The Rum­sey Drop-in has started a col­lec­tion for their roof re­pair fund at the Post Of­fice. Kar­rie is tak­ing care of it there so a big thank you to her for that. We hope to get started on it soon to avoid more spring rains leak­ing through.

The next event on the cal­en­dar for the Rum­sey Ag so­ci­ety will be the Spring Fling on April 16. This is al­ways a lot of fun be­cause of the Dessert Auc­tion so don’t for­get to at­tend.

En­joy a gig­gle and a good week;

A farmer is walk­ing with a prospec­tive buyer when they see a beau­ti­ful pig in the yard, ex­cept it has a wooden leg. The buyer asks, “Why the wooden leg?” The farmer replies, “That pig is so smart, I let it drive the kids to school.”

“Great, but why the wooden leg?”

“The pig is so smart it has a de­gree in horticulture and phi­los­o­phy.”

“Amaz­ing! But why the bloody wooden leg?”

“Well when you have a pig that smart you don’t eat it all at once!”
