Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

And a happy sum­mer July day to all...as I write a bit of news this Mon­day morn­ing I see a beau­ti­ful blue sky and the sun is shin­ing bright and it looks like a warm high pres­sure weather sys­tem may be set­tling in around us this week. How about that hey! I don’t think I have seen SO much rain, ever in July, and, crazy thun­der and light­ning on a daily ba­sis! Pretty im­pres­sive! With all this mois­ture and now sun this week, the al­ready amaz­ing lush crops will con­tinue to flour­ish as well as our of­ten dry, dusty bad­lands which have trans­formed to vel­vety green...lovely.

So, hope you all got a chance to check the Mor­rin news last week as I in­cluded a piece about Dan Neill, brother of John and Brian, who has gen­er­ously do­nated a 1955 Mor­rin Fly­ers hockey jacket back to our com­mu­nity. Dan was a goal­tender for the men’s win­ning team back in the day. The well pre­served blue and gold jacket will soon be on dis­play in a cus­tom made glass cabinet to grace the halls of the Mor­rin & Dis­trict Arena Sport­sPlex. Thanks to Brad Olsen for pass­ing on this in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion and to the ed­i­tor at the Drumheller Mail for the bright color pic­ture that ac­com­pa­nied the story...much ap­pre­ci­ated!

And, I have to com­ment on the ef­fi­ciency of the paving crew hard at work to resur­face the high­way from the bot­tom of the hill in Drumheller all the way to the Mor­rin Cor­ner. I don’t know much about that kind of thing but wait times are min­i­mal and it sure is nice to drive on the new, smooth as­phalt and, even in spite of all the rain, they are get­ting ‘er done quickly! Good job!

So, with the sum­mer pre­cip­i­ta­tion, we have hardly had to wa­ter the flow­ers or the lawn...and thanks to kind neigh­bors for pass­ing on to our fam­ily, the bounty of plen­ti­ful gar­dens. My daugh­ter Charly of­ten teases me and tells me rather than a “green thumb” I have the “thumb of death” haha...and more fake flow­ers than real ones...in­side, out­side, up­stairs, down­stairs, so I do ap­pre­ci­ate the lo­cal fresh let­tuce and beets that have come our way...yum!

And bless­ings and safe trav­els to all who are on va­ca­tion and to all those ar­riv­ing to at­tend the Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play. We got to go on open­ing night and the newly scripted show from the book of Luke was fan­tas­tic! Looks like the weather is go­ing to be on your side for this fi­nal week­end of per­for­mances of “The Great­est Story Ever Told”! Cheers!
