Morrin Community Calendar
Well, that is pretty much a wrap for the summer...school starts up again this week and harvest to come. Definitely have been noticing the cooler temps, almost turned the fireplace on one chilly morning last week but resisted...whew! Hopefully the high twenties forecast for the upcoming few days is correct ... farmers need some sunshine.
Also, if the weather conditions are good, work on the “sanitary sewer and water main replacement” will begin soon on First Avenue North in the village of Morrin. Grayson Excavating Ltd. submitted the winning project details and bid at the cost of $747,601.31 so this is really good news for homeowners and residents in this area of town. The construction work is quite a process and those affected during this time may be under some slight inconvenience as the street will be dug up. Village leadership will do the best they can to deal with any issues that may arise and they thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as the work proceeds.
And another productive town project happened this summer over at the Village of Morrin Library. The roof of the 10’ x 50’ ATCO trailer that houses our library collection was badly damaged and leaking. Foam feeders Inc. from Stettler were contracted and came out at the beginning of August and got the roof all primed up and repaired. Now that the exterior roof has been fixed, the sagging, waterlogged ceiling panels in the front portion of the interior of the library will also be replaced. The Library Board wishes to thank the local Western Financial Office and Jacquie Boulet (who helped so much to get the grant!) for the $5000.00 they awarded to the Morrin Library last year. This infrastructure money covered the cost of the roof repair with enough left over to replace the damaged inside ceiling panels and maybe even possibly finish up with some outdoor landscaping. There is something very satisfying about restoring things that are broken...carry on! Cheers!
