Good morn­ing to you...good morn­ing to you...we’re all in our places with bright shin­ing faces! Thought I would start things off with a lit­tle kinder­garten ditty from days gone by. And look­ing out at the sky as I write this Mon­day morn­ing, it seems to be a calm, slightly cloudy day with some blue sky peek­ing through. I sure hope it warms up quick and turns out to be a har­vest­ing kind of day and week for all the hard­work­ing farm fam­i­lies.

So, last week I at­tended the monthly Vil­lage of Mor­rin Coun­cil meet­ing, and I have noth­ing out of the or­di­nary to re­port, bills are all paid and there are no coun­cil con­cerns. The water/sewer line re­place­ment work on First Av­enue North be­ing done by Grayson con­struc­tion got off to a bit of a slow start but is pro­gress­ing as ex­pected. It is a steady but te­dious job. They are only able to do one side of the street at a time be­cause there is a lim­ited area to pile the dirt as they dig, is com­ing along and will soon be an­other com­pleted sec­tion. An­other tid­bit I learned at the coun­cil meet­ing is that the Vil­lage of Mor­rin pro­vides an an­nual schol­ar­ship to a de­serv­ing stu­dent at the Mor­rin School. This year the cer­e­mony to de­liver all the awards cel­e­brat­ing aca­demic im­prove­ment, lead­er­ship, ath­leti­cism and ca­reer prepa­ra­tion is set for 7:00 p.m. on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 21 in the Mor­rin School Gym­na­sium.

And an­other im­por­tant piece of news pre­vi­ously men­tioned is that the 4H Mul­tiClub is get­ting revved up and ready to kick off their sea­son. The first meet­ing for vol­un­teer lead­ers and mem­bers will be held on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the Mor­rin School. It’s a great club and with adult/ parental su­per­vi­sion is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for young minds to pur­sue in­ter­ests in the ar­eas of equine, ca­nine, band, small en­gines, pho­tog­ra­phy and pos­si­bly archery.

Also, I wanted to re­mind ev­ery­one that the 55 plus group cribbage/games af­ter­noon started up last Thurs­day at 1:30 p.m. at the Mor­rin Arena Blooming Prairies Drop-In Cen­ter and sounds like they had a good bunch that came out to visit and play and en­joy cof­fee and snacks to­gether. New­com­ers are al­ways welcome and the se­nior so­cial event will be a go ev­ery sec­ond Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

And the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall As­so­ci­a­tion has some fun fall ac­tiv­i­ties lined up and I will post events and times and dates some time in Oc­to­ber. So that’s it...God bless the Toronto Blue Jays, the strong con­ser­va­tive ef­forts of Don­ald Trump and the farm­ers! “Bring­ing in the sheaves”... cheers!
