I hope you all en­joyed a won­der­ful Canada Day and the wet, wet weather since. I have heard re­ports of storms drop­ping as much as 3 inches and 3/10’s south of town so that is tremen­dous! It is Stam­pede week and typ­i­cally rainy weather. I hope if the hay has been cut at your place you will be able to get it baled up with­out too much rain dam­age.

This com­ing week­end is ex­cit­ing for our com­mu­nity as it is our an­nual Sports Days. The slow pitch games will start on Fri­day night and con­tinue all Satur­day with the fi­nals be­ing played Sun­day af­ter­noon. The con­ces­sion will be run­ning all week­end as well. The money raised from it will go to­wards the 2017 grad class of Mor­rin High School. There is also a sup­per and dance on Satur­day night plus free camp­ing though we do ask all trailer own­ers to be con­sid­er­ate when they park their campers. I know every­one likes to “cir­cle the wag­ons” but some­times that cir­cle be­comes so big that it elim­i­nates many park­ing places for more trail­ers. We would like to en­cour­age as many peo­ple to camp, tent or just park them- selves some­where safe at our Sports Days so that we don’t have peo­ple driv­ing home af­ter they have been drink­ing. It will be a fun week­end for our com­mu­nity so be sure to come up and en­joy the ball games.

The S.T.A.R.S Ride is also fast ap­proach­ing. It will be held on Sun­day, Au­gust 7 start­ing at 9 am. There will be a break­fast avail­able dur­ing reg­is­tra­tion, lunch pro­vided by the Grouch crew and sup­per pre­pared by the Coun­try Cook­ers. There will also be a si­lent auc­tion and raf­fle go­ing on all day so even if you choose not to ride through the beau­ti­ful coulees, you can sit in the sun­shine, lis­ten to some lo­cal en­ter­tain­ers, maybe take a dip in the river and en­joy some de­li­cious food.

Here’s some­thing for those re­cent grad­u­ates, en­joy;

Reach­ing the end of a job in­ter­view, the Hu­man Re­sources Of­fi­cer asks a young en­gi­neer fresh out of the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, “And what start­ing salary are you look­ing for?” The en­gi­neer replies, “In the re­gion of $125,000 a year, de­pend­ing on the benefits package.” The in­ter­viewer in­quires, “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks va­ca­tion, 14 paid hol­i­days, full med­i­cal and den­tal, com­pany match­ing re­tire­ment fund to 50% of salary, and a com­pany car leased ev­ery two years, say, a red Corvette?” The en­gi­neer sits up straight and says, “Wow! Are you kid­ding?” The in­ter­viewer replies, “Yeah, but you started it.”

Have a great week.
