Hope you all had a very blessed and Merry Christ­mas and it was a lovely White Christ­mas in­deed! Not as good for high­way trav­ellers but I’m sure there were many happy, en­er­getic kids who got to go slid­ing on the snow-cov­ered hills.

And school is out now for a well-de­served break af­ter fin­ish­ing up with a gym packed ap­pre­cia­tive crowd who showed up to sup­port the an­nual K-6 grade Christ­mas concert. The chil­dren shone as al­ways and hats off to staff for a job well done. And spe­cial thanks to piano teacher Chris­tine Bur­field, who has been com­ing to the school to teach half hour lessons with a num­ber of Mor­rin stu­dents this year and she ac­com­pa­nied sev­eral groups with their mu­si­cal se­lec­tions. I got to pitch in with some gui­tar ac­com­pa­ni­ment as well but I sure like to see our piano be­ing played again, so thanks so much Chris­tine for your teach­ing ef- - SEC­TION A from Pub­lic Works Fore­man David Benci who stated there are re­pairs to be made to the vil­lage back­hoe and half ton. Also of in­ter­est, with the last bit of snow and ice that has come our way, you may want to pick up some ice-melt. The Mor­rin Lions have some good stuff for sale and the vil­lage has pur­chased a bag or two to scat­ter around town. John Neill (403-772-3847) is tak­ing calls to help you out if you wish to get a 35 lb bag for 20 bucks... good deal ...think we may snag a bag for the win­ter now that the snow is fall­ing. Also at the meet­ing, I noted that the Star­land Re­gional Wa­ter Au­thor­ity has been in­formed there will forts and for help­ing with the concert. Your tal­ents are much ap­pre­ci­ated!

And Reach worker Katie re­ports that the “mit­ten tree” was a suc­cess again this year as stu­dents read­ily gath­ered up toques, scarves, leg warm­ers and even a ski suit to pass on to the Sal­va­tion Army for dis­tri­bu­tion. Thanks to all the kids who shared win­ter cloth­ing to help oth­ers.

Also, you will no­tice here, the pic­ture of two of our Mor­rin School stu­dents, Malenna and Mackenna who both won awards for their win­ning work on the far-reach­ing Christ­mas card con­test. Malenna won for her in­side words “you are as unique as a snowflake”...short and sweet but such a mirac­u­lous con­cept when you think of how God, in His bril­liant cre­ative glory, has not made one snowflake the same as an­other...just like peo­ple. And Mackenna won for her lovely de­sign and art­work en­ti­tled “baby it’s cold out­side” on the out­side of the card. I don’t believe the pair worked on the card to­gether and I thought it was re­mark­able how they un­know­ingly com­pli­mented one an­other’s imag­i­na­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions to both girls on bag­ging the big prize as there were hun­dreds of en­tries that came in from 9 school dis­tricts in our PLRD di­vi­ ex­cep­tional ac­com­plish­ment. Each girl re­ceived a framed pic­ture of the com­pleted Christ­mas card and $100.00 pre­sented by school board trus­tee Lyle Caw­iezel... so, well done, you make us proud!

And the monthly vil­lage coun­cil meet­ing was held last Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 21 and I jot­ted down a few points to pass on. There is al­ways the on­go­ing main­te­nance re­port soon be higher wa­ter rates for our ar­eas and the vil­lage will likely have wa­ter me­ters in­stalled at some point in the near fu­ture, so stay tuned for more info on that.

And lastly, the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Club will be host­ing their an­nual ma­jor fundraiser, and this year the club will bring “Five of Di­a­monds” to the Rum­sey Com­mu­nity Hall on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 4, 2017 for a dance party and serve up a de­li­cious mid­night lunch. This band hails from Hanna and I am told they play a broad mix of coun­try, rock and pop mu­sic. Here is what they say about their group... “we al­ways have fun and so does our au­di­ence”... sounds like a good time to me and you may get tick­ets for this event from club mem­bers.

So, if you have days off through this re­lax­ing week be­tween Christ­mas and New Years...en­joy the fleet­ing magic and may all your dreams come true. And as this New Year be­gins, I wish for all, this lovely Judeo Chris­tian bless­ing...“May the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gra­cious to you. May He lift up His coun­te­nance, smile and kind­ness upon you and give you His peace”. Amen! So be it! Cheers!
