Well Happy New Year all and what a year it has been! It was a lovely, mag­i­cal, fun, Christmas hol­i­day sea­son and rest­ful break and now it all starts over again. It is hard to get back into the rou­tine after late nights and sleep-in morn­ings but here we go and, a cheery welcome back to all the staff and stu­dents at Mor­rin School.

And now here we are right smack dab in the mid­dle of a chilly, frosty, snowy-white Cana­dian win­ter as school and many ac­tiv­i­ties re­sume. I kind of feel like... okay, Christmas, the best part of win­ter is over... let’s fast for­ward to spring. Jan­uary al­ways seems like such a long, cold, bleak month but once we get through it, there are some fun things to look for­ward to... like Valen­tines and Easter. This year, the Mor­rin Lions will once again be host­ing the Valen­tine Break­fast at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 12. The group serves up a tasty- welcome- all- com­mu­nity break­fast a few times a year... it is al­ways well at­tended and much ap­pre­ci­ated. Just to let you all know, the Santa Break­fast held in De­cem­ber brought in 322 lbs of food and $1000.00 and this col­lec­tion was di­rectly passed on to the Sal­va­tion Army Food Bank. Thanks com­mu­nity for your gen­er­ous do­na­tions and support.

Also com­ing up even sooner, on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary the Mor­rin Fig- ure Skat­ing Club’s ma­jor an­nual fundraiser. This year the vol­un­teers are put­ting to­gether a dance party that will be held at the Rum­sey Com­mu­nity Hall that evening, with the “Five of Di­a­monds” band from Hanna pro­vid­ing the mu­sic. There will be a late midnight lunch to go along with ad­mis­sion and tick­ets are avail­able from club mem­bers so, come out and support the lo­cal skat­ing club and have some fun!

And, that is about all the news I have for to­day. Aside from snow-shov­el­ing and build­ing a snow-fort in the back­yard, our fun mostly has been, the eat-drink-and-be-merry-times... play­ing games, do­ing a 500 piece puz­zle, host­ing some fun-fam­ilyand-friend vis­its, wist­fully put­ting Christmas away, and through the sea­son, we have not strayed too far from the warmth of our gas fire­place. We like to watch movies and our fam­ily- fa­vorite- tra­di­tion on New Year’s Eve is “The Lord of the rings” tril­ogy. I will leave you with one of the most in­spir­ing quotes to start this New blessed year... the hob­bit Frodo tasked with a great bur­den says... “I wish the ring had never come to me... I wish none of this had hap­pened”, and wise Gan­dalf an­swers... “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to de­cide. All you have to de­cide is what to do with the time that is given to you”. God bless... stay warm... cheers!
