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 4...is 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!
