Rum­sey & Dis­trict Regis­ter

Well, we got the mois­ture that the ground has been crav­ing over the weekend but un­for­tu­nately some of it was in the form of hail. I hope the crops on the west side of town didn’t suf­fer too much. We are nice and wet here at home so I am grate­ful in spite of the bit of hail we re­ceived.

The Rum­sey Con­nec­tion Golf tour­na­ment was held this past Thurs­day with great suc­cess even with the weather be­ing a bit tem­per­a­men­tal. There were plenty of golfers and every­one seemed to be hav­ing a great time with a de­li­cious steak sup­per after the golf­ing. There were 6 teams that tied for top spot so they had a putt-off to find the win­ners. It was all in good fun.

Linda re­ported to me that Pat Holowath hosted at St. Mary’s Lodge for the June Birth­day party and there were three celebrants from Ex­tended Care; Ada­line Guynup, Marie Elle­ment and Beryl Gelinas. There were no birth­days in the lodge. Ken­dra Kiemele will be host­ing the July birth­day party on the 18th.

The Ag So­ci­ety is gear­ing up for their Sports Days which will start on July 15, 16 and 17. There are al­ready 16 teams com­mit­ted with a few on the wait­ing list so that is good news. Nice to see our tour­na­ment com­ing into de­mand. There will be the usual for­mat of lots of good ball to watch, con­ces­sion ran by the fu­ture 2017 Mor­rin Grads and their par­ents, Satur­day sup­per and dance to fol­low with break­fast pro­vided Satur­day and Sun­day morn­ing by our lo­cal fire­men and the Elks clubs. This is a great chance to come in and visit with friends and neigh­bours so you don’t want to miss out.

The Rum­sey library will be wrap­ping up their book club with the July 6 meet­ing of Girl Run­ner which has been a great read about the first Canadian fe­male Olympic com­peti­tors and the chal­lenges they went through to break through the stereo-types of the frag­ile and frail, fairer gen­der. If you are look­ing for some good sum­mer read­ing, come in and check out what the library has to of­fer. Keep in mind that with your library card you can travel any­where in Al­berta and use this card to get ac­cess to all that a library has to of­fer. If you bor­row from me you can re­turn it some­where else, if you bor­row while trav­el­ling bring it in to me when you are done and I will make sure it gets back to where it orig­i­nated. Of course, all the on­line ser­vices are free to ac­cess with your mem­ber­ship at any­time from any­where.
