It is so nice to go for a walk and not have to worry about slipping on ice.
Congratulations to Kim and Michelle Neil of Hanna, this week’s winner of the 300 Club Raffle draw which took place on March 26. Thanks for buying a ticket.
The Morrin Lions Easter Bingo on Wednesday March 23 was well attended and lots of fun. Thanks to the Lions for putting on such a good family event.
This week is Easter Break and no school for the students. It’s hard not to think about digging in the dirt when it’s so nice outside. It’s still a little early yet and I have a bad habit of digging too deep and finding bulbs I forgot I had planted. I’m waiting until May!

The Drumheller and District Rural Crime Watch Association are looking for new members to help with coverage of the area. With the first year membership you get a gate sign and a post sign. If you would like to join you can get an application form from the website, www.drumcrimewatch.com, or contact Dorothy Gwyn nat crime watch@ star land county. com. There is a website, facebook page, twitter account and the phone tree where we can call, email or text people with fanout information about criminal activities in the area and when the meetings are held. There is also a quarterly newsletter which will be sent out by email to members. Members of the Rural Crime Watch are the eyes and ears of the community. With the rise in criminal activity across the province it is important for everyone to be aware of what is happening in their community and surrounding areas. The next meeting is April 20 in the upstairs meeting room at Freson Brothers at 7:00 pm.
There are a few tasks that we need help with at the new hall. If you have time and are interested in volunteering please contact Terra Adams (403) 823-4510 or myself at 403823-0433.
Have a great week.
