Rumsey & District Register
Welcome to the Christmas season. We had a good start to this season with the Ag Society’s first Annual Christmas Market. There were many people who came and enjoyed the wares of the 18 vendors. There was a wide variety of products to give the buyers plenty of choice so it was a good start to a new tradition. I would like to send a big thank you to Claire Krywcum and Baylee Nelson for their time and energy spent on organizing this event.
The Super League curling will have another full day of curling next Sunday, Dec. 4 if you want to watch some great curling. The concession will be open if you are interested in supporting the curling club and giving the cook a break. They also curl on Friday evenings. This league will be finished soon and the bonspiels will start in January so plan to join in.
Don’t forget there will be a Crib Night at the Drop-In this Wednesday evening, Nov. 30 starting at 7:00 p.m.; everyone is welcome, singles and couples, we will just make teams with whoever shows up.
The Ag Society will be busy in December as well, as they will be hosting the Annual Christmas Party with Santa on Friday, December 16 starting at 7 p.m. The theme is a Pyjama party with Santa, your young ones (and you, too) will be able to decorate gingerbread cookies and do a craft then have milk and cookies with Santa. There will also be a movie after visiting with Santa. These are just a few of the fun ideas that the committee is working on right now so make sure you plan to come. This party will be for all ages, not just the wee ones.
Also on the Ag Society’s calendar is the Annual General meeting where everyone in the entire community is welcome to come and bring ideas for the coming year. This meeting will happen on Monday, December 12 starting at 7 p.m.
The Morrin 4-H MultiClub members are asked to bring in their diaries for the December 5 meeting. Time for the leaders to sign off on those.
Lastly, the Elks Turkey Bingos will be held in Rumsey on December 7 and in Big Valley on December 14 starting at 7:30 p.m.; lots of fun and a great organization to support. Because of the Turkey bingo, I will be moving the library craft night to Thursday, December 8 starting at 7 p.m. We will be creating a Christmas decoration but remember that your craft ideas are also welcome so bring in what you have been working on and share with the group.
Here are some Christmas one-liners for you to enjoy:
“I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note – ‘toys not included’”
One Christmas, my grandfather gave me a box of broken glass. He gave my brother a box of Band-Aids and said, “You two share.”
Q: What did the reindeer say before telling his joke? A: This one’ll sleigh you! Have a great week!
