It’s that time of year again when the ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties are start­ing up and you will have lots of op­tions to get out and get in­volved. The Rum­sey/ Row­ley 4-H Beef Club will be hav­ing their or­ga­ni­za­tional meet­ing on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 25 for all chil­dren in the area from ages 9 to 21. It will be held at the Rum­sey curl­ing rink start­ing at 7:00 p.m. The Ag So­ci­ety would like to thank all the par­tic­i­pants of the Drumheller District Ex­change Group which con­sisted of chil­dren from our Rum­sey/Row­ley 4-H Beef club, Mor­rin Multi-club and the Delia Beef Club. On July 8, th­ese 12 mem- bers plus 12 mem­bers from On­tario painted all the ta­bles in the hall as well as the bleach­ers at the base­ball di­a­monds. As part of the ex­change itin­er­ary, th­ese young peo­ple did a com­mu­nity project here and an­other in On­tario when the kids went back there. You have to ad­mit – 4-H is great!

The Curl­ing rink is gear­ing up for an­other sea­son, Brooks re­ports that the ice is de­vel­op­ing nicely and they plan to start Su­per League on Novem­ber 4. The Ladies League will start the fol­low­ing Tues­day, Novem­ber 8, the Open League on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 10 with the Ju­niors start­ing the fol- low­ing Tues­day, Novem­ber 15. If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing the Ju­niors, please call Brooks at 403-3682357 and for the other leagues, give Rod a call at 403-368-2401.

The Mor­rin Lions are plan­ning to have an aware­ness/in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on Novem­ber 22 about Di­a­betes. This meet­ing will in­clude in­for­ma­tion about the types of di­a­betes, pre­di­a­betes, ex­er­cise, nutri­tion and a chance to get some ques­tions an­swered. They are just in the plan­ning stage now and will send me more in­for­ma­tion as they get closer to the date.

The Big Val­ley Ag So­ci­ety is also plan­ning a Post-Har­vest cel­e­bra­tion on Oc­to­ber 29 fea­tur­ing the co­me­dian Brad Muisel. The tick­ets in­clude a sup­per to go along with the great en­ter­tain­ment, starts at 6:00 p.m. Our Fall sup­per will be the Satur­day after this, Novem­ber 5 start­ing at 5:00 p.m. I also no­ticed in the post of­fice all the posters ad­ver­tis­ing fall sup­pers around the com­mu­nity. Boy there is no rea­son to miss out on a tur­key sup­per and sup­port a good cause in the next month or so.

Keep in mind that the Rum­sey Li­brary will be start­ing up our Craft Nights on Tues­day, Novem­ber 8 at 7:00 p.m. We will start with ex- plor­ing the fun of knit­ting so bring in your projects, learn from skilled knit­ters or just come and sit and knit and visit if that ap­peals to you. Love to see you come out. The 2017 Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar will be avail­able soon so plan pick­ing one up for your­selves or a friend.

The Rum­sey Drop-In will be start­ing up a Crib­bage and games af­ter­noon on Sun­day, Novem­ber 20 start­ing at 1:00 p.m. The Drop-In has lots of space so we don’t have to stick to crib, we can set up ta­bles for other games, there is also a pool table and shuf­fle­board table in the base­ment that could be used as well. We will try this date as our first event and if enough peo­ple would rather switch to a week­day evening, we can do some changes. I am open to sug­ges­tions. Stop in at the li­brary and let me know.

Quote of the day: “Some­days my de­ci­sion mak­ing skills re­sem­ble that of a squir­rel when cross­ing the street.” Have a great week.
