Morrin Community Calendar
And it is another beautiful, blue-sky, sunshiny day as this new week begins. Thank the Lord, we are getting the sun, we are getting the rain and we are getting the warm...a good summer season.
So, I reported last week about the Village of Morrin Council meeting I attended. I will quickly recap...highlights mentioned were that repairs to sewer/water lines on 1st avenue north are soon to commence once qualified bids are assessed and discussions are done with engineers and contractors...a lengthy process for our village council. Also, good to know...garbage bags and mowed grass bags for weekly pickup should not weigh more than 25 lbs. As far as recycling goes... we have two metal bins, one for newsprint and one for cardboard...please ensure cardboard is flattened as per request from the Drumheller Landfill workers who process our cardboard and this speeds their job along. Also at the meeting, we learned that the Village of Morrin recently received from Municipal Affairs... the “Alberta Safety Recognition Award” 20 years strong...well done!
And as some may have noticed, the Eastern Central Alberta Newspaper has been regularly sending reporters out to our village to see how we are all doing. I am always curious as to what their headline is going to read... the latest following the same council meeting I attended was...“Morrin Council, streets have more cracks than asphalt”. There are some broken up streets around Morrin, mostly from ancient water main breaks and leaks and heavy vehicles that rumble through town. And as the lines get replaced the costly job of repaving will follow... “down the road” ...little play on words ha ha! Anyway, for now our Public works foreman David Benci is doing his best to fill in the rough patches and potholes...all things considered, it sure beats gumbo!
And so those are all my newsy thoughts for today. I would like to wish all the staff and students at the Morrin School a happy, restful, fun-filled and safe summer break. To any teachers that are retiring this year, God bless you and thank you for your dedication and faithful service to do this most important work...time to enjoy a new stage of life and adventure...carry on!
