An­other week be­gins...looks to be a lit­tle cloudy and cooler for the next few days and, we sure are get­ting the se­vere sum­mer rain­storms in the evenings, whoa! The earth got an­other good soak­ing as the heav­ens opened and it re­ally came down this past Satur­day night. But the days are warm and crops are thick and lush...lov­ing the sum­mer.

So, here is a good tid­bit of info...I re­ceived a call from Brad Olsen re­cently and he wanted to pass on some in­ter­est­ing news to every­one. I am told that we had a pretty good men’s hockey team once upon a time called the Mor­rin Fly­ers and Brad has a pic­ture to prove it. For­mer res­i­dent Dan Neill, older brother of John and Brian played as a goal­tender for the club and he has kept safe, a well-pre­served team jacket from 1955...looks brand new! And, he is gen­er­ously do­nat­ing the at­trac­tive blue and gold jacket to the Mor­rin Arena Sport­splex. The gar­ment will soon be on dis­play for all to see in a cus­tom made glass cabi­net. A very nice gift in­deed that will en­hance the dé­cor in the halls of the Mor­rin Arena...so thank you very much Dan Neill for tak­ing such good care of the jacket all these years and for pass­ing back for all to en­joy!

And right across the road from the Mor­rin Arena is of course, the lovely Sod House Park and Bill Mont­gomery is happy to an­nounce that the mu­seum will be open through­out the sum­mer months ev­ery Mon­day and Wed­nes­day from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Levi Hamp­ton was man­ning the fort at the Sod House this past Mon­day and when called upon, also of­fered his help and strength over at the Mor­rin School gar­den, as Mrs. Rus­sell was out to do some care­tak­ing. Thanks to Michelle and all the kids that came out to pull some weeds. My daugh­ter Charly ran over to help as well and this week she is gone to Salem Acres Girls Camp, so miss­ing her a whole bunch! Sigh­hhh....and that is all the news for to­day...cheers! it
