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!

If you paint it, they will come
