Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Calendar

So...school’s out for the sum­mer, and a dandy one it is. I took a drive out to Stet­tler last week and it is so pretty driv­ing that way any­way but oh my, the fields looked fan­tas­tic! What a beau­ti­ful sea­son...gar­dens are bloom­ing and crops are flour­ish­ing.

And the Sod House is al­ways a neat part of sum­mer tourism in Mor­rin. Word from Bill Mont­gomery is that the Sod House will be open ev­ery Mon­day and Wed­nes­day through­out July and Au­gust from 10:00 – 6:-00 p.m. We live di­rectly across the lane from the Sod House Park and we see a lot of peo­ple who drive up to take a peek and then stop to en­joy their pic­nic lunch...so thanks to the Sod House Com­mit­tee for mak­ing this hap­pen for sum­mer vis­i­tors.

And yearly Mor­rin prop­erty tax as­sess­ments/state­ments were sent out in the mail re­cently with a fol­low-up no­tice in the wa­ter bill that there was an er­ror on the due date. The due date and last date be­fore penalty should read July 31.

Also wanted to of­fer quick con­grat­u­la­tions to Mor­rin res­i­dent An­thony Hux­ley who ap­plied for and won the job of sum­mer stu­dent worker and got to start in the po­si­tion just this week. An­thony will be an as­sis­tant to our Pub­lic Works fore­man David Benci who will wel­come the added help, es­pe­cially to keep up with the mow­ing and weed-whip­ping around town.

So the days are warm and the rain comes in the evenings...pretty much per­fect for all those who like to be out­side and for all things grow­ing. This past Sun­day morn­ing my daugh­ter Charly and I were scan­ning for the flax crop as we neared the Drumheller Val­ley. As we got close to the des­cent into town, we were de­lighted to see a hint of the beau­ti­ful laven­der flow­ers be­gin­ning to bud in the field to the right side of the high­way.

And ev­ery­thing was quiet and peace­ful on Sun­day in Drumheller com­pared to the ear­lier Fri­day, July 1st cel­e­bra­tion, which was as won­der­ful as ever and the weather was fan­tas­tic for the Canada Day pa­rade... “In all thy sons com­mand”! And happy July 4th shout-out to all our Amer­i­can friends...cheers!
