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.
