Rumsey & District Register
What a beautiful weekend of sunshine and humid weather. The silage and haying equipment is running up and down the roads so take care when you see them. Every farmer works hard at being safe as they enter and exit their fields but there are lots of blind spots on the big equipment when a smaller vehicle can be invisible to them.
As everyone is busy with field work or vacation, there is very little news to tell you about. The history book sales are progressing well so if you haven’t purchased your copy yet make sure you do. There are plenty of copies available at the library or you can call Dariel McNaughton and Mary Newton. The library will also be hosting a Minecraft day for the kids on August 9 if you have a young one who would like to learn more about the game or how to join the library’s online site. Keep in mind that a library membership is affordable for anyone to join and there are so many things available through the website that books are only a small part of what we have to offer. Come in and check out what there is, I think you will be impressed.
The S.T.A.R.S. Ride is fast approaching so get your pledge sheets filled out and join in on August 7 for a fun day of horseback riding, silent auctions, games, raffle, breakfast, lunch and dinner, poker hands; the list goes on.
Hats off to the fellow who is taking care of the Rumsey corner. He has been doing such a good job. It really draws the eye as you go by or turn into town. His name is Sean Proud and is sharing yard space up at Greg Primroses so not far from town. If you see him working up on the corner, make sure you give him a honk or a wave to let him know how much his work is appreciated. For you vacation goers:
A tramp knocks on the door of an inn known as St. George and the Dragon. The landlady answers. “Could you give a poor man something to eat?” asks the tramp.
“No!” yells the woman, slamming the door in his face. A few minutes later, he knocks again. “Now what do you want?” the woman asks. “Could I have a few words with St. George?” Have a great week.
