Happy New Year to ev­ery­one in the com­mu­nity! I hope you en­joyed a won­der­ful Christ­mas sea­son with fam­ily and friends and are now ready to jump into a brand new year with lots of ad­ven­tures ahead for ev­ery­one.

The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety would like to thank Robert Rich­mond for bring­ing Santa to the Christ­mas party just be­fore Christ­mas. Con­sid­er­ing how busy Santa is at that time of the year, Robert must have done a great job talk­ing him into tak­ing a bit of time to visit with all the chil­dren. The or­ga­niz­ers of the Christ­mas party would also like to thank the Big Val­ley Elks and Royal Pur­ple for their do­na­tions to the Christ­mas party mak­ing it all that much more fes­tive. The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety held a suc­cess­ful New Year’s Eve dance with over 50 peo­ple at­tend­ing.

It is with sad­ness that I have to pass on the news that Marie Hamp­ton passed away on De­cem­ber 21, 2016. She was born De­cem­ber 22, 1929 into the Grif­fith fam­ily and mar­ried Dawn Hamp­ton in July of 1951. Marie and Dawn were ac­tive mem­bers of both Row­ley and Rum­sey and had two chil­dren, Stan­ley and Neil then later two grand­chil­dren from Stan­ley and his wife Wanda, Karen and Tara. Marie was also able to en­joy her 4 great-grand­chil­dren, Mor­gan and Macy Block and Jay­den and Cameron Van­den Pol.

The Men’s bon­spiel is quickly ap­proach­ing at the end of the month so if you are in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing a team please con­tact Jackie and Brooks Watts at 403-368-2357. Also, don’t for­get to get your tick­ets for the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Clubs fundraiser on Fe­bru­ary 4 fea­tur­ing the “Five of Di­a­monds”; doors open at 8:00 p.m.

The De­cem­ber birth­day club held their party on the 19 with Dariel Mc- Naughton bring­ing the cake. There were quite a few birth­days to cel­e­brate for the month of De­cem­ber; in ex­tended care, Edna Stennes and in the Lodge there were Ellen Jewell, Bud Nel­son, Dorothy Dryer, Mary Green, El­dred Maerg and Phyllis Stein­bach. Diane Meller sang and Ken Swal­low played the man­dolin with Shirley Smyth play­ing the or­gan. Judy Stone­man will host on Jan­uary 23. I would like to send out a big thank you to the or­ga­niz­ers and hostesses of this club for tak­ing the time to en­ter­tain the mem­bers of the St. Mary’s lodge ev­ery month. It’s a great thing.

For those of you who haven’t made their New Year’s Eve res­o­lu­tions yet, here are some to con­sider:

I have only one res­o­lu­tion. To re­dis­cover the dif­fer­ence be­tween wants and needs. May I have all I need and want all I have. And;

In 2017, may all your trou­bles last as long as your New Year res­o­lu­tions.

Have a great week.
