The Rum­sey/Row­ley 4-H group en­joyed an ed­u­ca­tional day at Cal­houn Feed­lot on Jan­uary 2 when they went for a tour and learned more about the real life ap­pli­ca­tions of feed­ing, treat­ing and gain­ing pounds and profit to those calves. After the tour, they had their Christmas party at the Three Hills bowl­ing alley where ev­ery­one en­joyed a few games of pins. Their next event out­side of their meet­ings will be at the Cam­rose Bull Congress on Satur­day, Jan­uary 28 when they will join in the judg­ing clinic held there as part of the congress.

The Mor­rin Girls and Boys curl­ing teams have been busy with a U18 bon­spiel spon­sored by Servus Credit Union in Red Deer this past week­end. The Girls lost out in the B event on Sun­day and the boys lost out on Satur­day in the D event. The boys team con­sists of Brett Holowath, Jack Adams, Tony Hux­ley and Bryce Kop­jar. The girls team has Shelby Prim­rose, Tay­lor Olm­stead, Amanda Holowath and Kayla Adams. Both teams will be head­ing to In­dus on Jan­uary 15 for a cash bon­spiel. Good luck, ev­ery­one.

It is bon­spiel sea­son with 4 Rum­sey teams driv­ing over to Three Hills to com­pete in the Men’s Bon­spiel this past week. They must be get­ting ready for the Men’s Bon­spiel that will be start­ing here in town in a cou­ple weeks’ time. You should be see­ing the bon­spiel con­ces­sion sched­ule in your mail­box soon. Hope­fully you will be able to work your shift as it is only a lit­tle time out of your win­ter and a great way to see some of the com­mu­nity and catch up. If you are un­able to work your shift please let Sandy McNaughton know as it is re­ally tough if peo­ple don’t show and there is no one to run the kitchen for that shift. Thanks to ev­ery­one who will­ingly work ev­ery year for those 3 hours, it means a lot to the or­ga­niz­ers. If you have a team for the Men’s, please con­tact Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403-368-2357 to en­ter.

The Rum­sey Li­brary is hop­ing to sell a few more 2017 cal­en­dars so if you haven’t picked the per­fect one for your kitchen or of­fice wall, maybe come in and see the beau­ti­ful pic­tures fea­tured in ours. It is the only fundraiser that the li­brary has and I would love to see them all go out the door. I will also be look­ing at an­other craft night soon so if you have some ideas of crafts that you have al­ways liked to ex­plore, stop in and let me know and I’ll see what I can do. The Book Club book for the month of Jan­uary is ‘A house in the Sky: a mem­oir’ by Amanda Lind­hout, a lo­cal Red Deer Pho­to­jour­nal­ist who was kid­napped by Is­lam ex­trem­ists for 460 days. She writes about her time in cap­tiv­ity, life be­fore and after. If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing in on this months’ read, let me know and I’ll get you a copy.

Have a great week.
