It’s al­most Christ­mas so now I will start­ing count­ing the days. I’m sure ev­ery­one is a lit­tle fran­tic to get the last of the prepa­ra­tions done be­fore the rel­a­tives and friends ar­rive.

The Su­per League had their play­offs this week­end with Brooks Watts and his team of Leah Watts, Dawn Wright and Cheryl Richen tak­ing home the big prize of first place. They played against Jim Kry­w­cun’s team with his sons Dal­las and Derek, Jim Tay­lor on the team with Brett Ho- lowath fill­ing in for Jim Tay­lor on the week­end. The third place win­ners were Tim Prim­rose, Curt McNaughton, Brett Adams and David Webster and the Rod Nel­son team tak­ing the 4th spot in the fi­nals. His team con­sisted of Kevin Helmer, Mark McNaughton, Mike Steen with Bradley Nel­son tak­ing Mike’s spot on the week­end.

The Chil­dren’s Christ­mas party was held this past Fri­day with a crowd of 23 chil­dren com­ing from near and far to en­joy Santa’s com­pany. They dec­o­rated cook­ies and built a Christ­mas or­na­ment for their tree, en­joyed a visit with Santa and watched a movie all while in their pa­ja­mas so it was loads of fun. Thank you to the or­ga­niz­ers of this event as it re­places the Christ­mas con­cert and is great fun.

The Ag So­ci­ety had their Gen­eral Meet­ing on Mon­day where the mem­bers who have fin­ished their 3 year terms hand over their knowl­edge to the new mem­bers who have agreed to take their place. This years’ changes are: Alex Jensen hands over his pres­i­dency cap to Al Hamp­ton, Jackie Watts takes on the job of Vice Pres­i­dent, Trina MacFar­lane signs on as Sec­re­tary, Curt McNaughton stays on as Trea­surer, Rod Nel­son con­tin­ues as Curl­ing Co-or­di­na­tor, Cayle Grif­fith will con­tinue as En­ter­tain­ment plan­ner, Sharon Walker takes on an­other year as Re­cruiter of new mem­bers, Sandy McNaughton con­tin­ues in the busy po­si­tion of Kitchen co-or­di­na­tor, Baylee Nel­son stays on as Gar­den Show rep, Tara Rich­mond as 4-H and S.T.A.R.S rep, Lorna Hodge comes on as our new Pub­lic­ity rep, Doug Perry will con­tinue to do a great job as our Handy­man, Phil McBride and my­self haven’t been as­signed a ti­tle which means we get the worst jobs, just kid­ding. B.J. Perry will be our Hall and Rink Book­ing Lady from now on. The Ag So­ci­ety would like to thank the mem­bers who have com­pleted their 3 years: Alex Jensen, Claire Kry­w­cun, Angie VanS­traten, Travis Caweziel and No­rah Watts. Brooks and Jackie Watts will con­tinue to be the peo­ple to call for any bon­spiel in­for­ma­tion and to sign up your­self or a team to curl. The next big event for the Rum­sey Ag so­ci­ety will be the Mens bon­spiel start­ing on Jan 23 to 28. Brooks Watts and Tim Prim­rose will con­tinue on as our ice men and Mary New­ton and her Coun­try Cook­ers crew will take care of our big cater­ing jobs so we would like to thank them for their work be­cause it would be ex­tremely dif­fi­cult to do the big events without them.

The Rum­sey – Row­ley 4-H Beef Club held their De­cem­ber meet­ing last week as well and added a food drive as part of their com­mu­nity work. They will be tak­ing the do­na­tions down to the Drumheller food bank. They will be go­ing on a feed­lot tour on Jan­uary 2 to Cal­houn Feed­lot down at Acme and then bowl­ing in Three Hills as their Christ­mas party.

The Mor­rin High School Girls curl­ing team headed up to Cam­rose this week­end for a cash bon­spiel hosted by the Au­gus­tana Univer­sity. Shelby Prim­rose, Kayla Adams, Tay­lor Olm­stead from Delia and Amanda Holowath won all 4 games mak­ing it well worth their time to drive up there so con­grat­u­la­tions ladies.

I will con­clude my col­umn with a fa­mous quote from the Grinch who stole Christ­mas:

“Maybe Christ­mas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.” “Maybe Christ­mas …per­haps…means a lit­tle bit more!”

Thanks Dr. Seus, you said it well once again. Have a won­der­ful Christ­mas ev­ery­one.
