As the sun continues to shine the farmers continue their frantic pace to completing the harvest. Be safe out there everyone.
The Remembrance Service at the Drop-In was very well attended in spite of people being so busy in the field. It was rewarding to see that so many people are still passionate about remembering our fallen soldiers and the freedom that we enjoy today.
Our first Crib afternoon at the Drop-In will be this coming Sunday, November 20 starting at 1:00 p.m. Come in and join in the fun, bring a friend! Keep in mind that the Drop-In is always available for private rentals. It can seat up to 50 people so works good for small crowds or large families. It is handicap accessible, has a small kitchen with buffet tables for serving food and a pool table and shuffle board in the basement for some fun activities.
The Diabetes Information and Awareness meeting will be held next Tuesday, November 22 starting at 7:00 p.m. This will be a great opportunity for anyone who is diabetic, pre-diabetic or knows of someone who is. The Travelling Diabetes Resource Program van will be in attendance as well as presenters from the Alberta Health Services. This is a free event sponsored by the Morrin Lions so thank you to them for bringing this information to our small community.
The Morrin Lions are also hosting their annual Santa Breakfast on December 4 at the Morrin Hall so keep that in mind as you plan the next few weeks.
The Super League started last Friday with 11 teams registered. They will have two Sundays of solid curling in their schedule, this coming Sunday, November 20 and December 4 so if you would like to watch some good curling and friendly competition head in on those days.
Don’t forget about the first Annual Christmas Market at the Rumsey Hall to be held on November 26 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
Here’s a little giggle to get you through the week:
Eight-year-old Sally brought her report card home from school. Her marks were good...mostly A’s and a couple of B’s.
However, her teacher had written across the bottom: “Sally is a smart little girl, but she has one fault. She talks too much in school. I have an idea I am going to try, which I think may break her of the habit.”
Sally’s dad signed her report card, putting a note on the back: “Please let me know if your idea works on Sally because I would like to try it out on her mother.”
Have a great week!
