Morrin Community Calendar

And here we are closing in on December and out in Morrin we have had a skiff of snow in the mornings. The harvest is in, the machines are quiet and the Morrin Community Hall Association put on a tasty turkey fall supper to celebrate. Thanks to all the volunteers who donated food and/or their helping hands to make the evening dinner so successful, as the old saying goes, “many hands make light work”... ‘tis true.
So, the Morrin History Book Committee has a meeting tonight, Wednesday, November 23 at 7:00 p.m. at the Starland County Building. The group has invited community members CEO Ross Rawlusyk, the Morrin AG Society, the Morrin Homecoming committee and the Morrin Sod House Society to brainstorm about financial options and ideas as they move forward with planning.
And, of community interest, the Marigold Cow Bus came to town last week and library manager Carla said that the advertising was effective as a few young families came out see what it was all about. They had a fun time of reading together for a few hours as visitors came and went and when the team wrapped up the afternoon, they generously left behind 50 brand new kids books for our little library...nice!
Also, reporting from the monthly Village Council meeting...and the biggest news is that some really cool new playground equipment has been installed at our school, thanks to financial help from the Starland MD, the Morrin School and the Village team. The sewer/ water line reconstruction on first avenue north has been completed and now awaits a final inspection. Council also received word from Drumheller & District Chamber of Commerce/ ECD Coalition/Town of Drumheller that there is free family indoor playtime from 2-4 p.m. most Sundays, for families 0-5 years at the Badlands Community Facility Fieldhouse. So that is a nice thing and lastly, Public Works Foreman Dave Benci reports the village Christmas lights are up.
And with that...now it is time to get ready for Christmas... got my tree up, lights are on and it truly is “the most wonderful time of the year”! The annual Santa breakfast is all set to go at the Morrin Community Hall on Sunday morning, December 4 from 9:00 – noon.
And right after the Santa Breakfast, the Morrin Community Hall Association will be hosting the Annual Turkey Bingo on Thursday night, December 8 with pre-call at 6:30 p.m. and games start at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come out and play and try to win yourself a turkey.
Also, last week I was telling you all about the elementary kids singing “somewhere over the rainbow” at the Morrin School Remembrance Day Service. “And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true”. Here are some more of their hopes and dreams... “My dream is be able to ride horses every day, even in winter”. “I want to turn into a cat”! “My dream is to become a pet rescuer”. “My dream is to become a professional dancer”...“to become a photographer or film-maker”. “I have a dream to be a horse trainer”... “buy a cool boat”... and “my dream is to be in the Olympics”. Stay tuned for a few more next week. Way to go kids...they are all imaginative and inspiring... love it! Cheers!
