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 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!
