Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Darcy Gra­ham 403-772-3747

So, just a cou­ple of more weeks left in this first month of the new year and it sure has been a chilly, blus­tery be­gin­ning. This past Sun­day brought milder temps and sun­shine our way and that was a most wel­come re­prieve from the cold.

And you might need to get your­self some ice-melt as some of the side­walk and drive­way ar­eas get slick. The Mor­rin Li­ons have a good prod­uct avail­able that comes in a big 35 lb plas­tic pail. John Neill may help you out with that if you give him at call at 403-772-3847 and we dis­cov­ered last week that there is also a sup­ply of this prod­uct on hand at the Moun­tain View Credit Union. And I men­tioned last week that the Mor­rin Li­ons are serv­ing up the an­nual Valen­tine’s break­fast at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 12.

Also on the first Satur­day night in Fe­bru­ary on the 4th, the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Club will be host­ing their ma­jor fundraiser at the Rum­sey Com­mu­nity Hall. They will be putting on a dance party and mid­night lunch for 18 and over and the band “Five of Di­a­monds” from Hanna will pro­vide a va­ri­ety of pop, rock and coun­try mu­sic that evening. We got our tick­ets...how ‘ bout you!

So that’s about all the newsy news I have for this week. On a per­sonal note, a big part of our Jan­uary fam­ily fun has been the ac­qui­si­tion and train­ing of a new black lab pup “Loni”...she is lots of work and ex­cite­ment for sure, nice to have a dog again! And we have been watch­ing a bit of curl­ing...yay for Team North Amer­ica who de­feated the World for the 5th year in a row! And, this Fri­day we will def­i­nitely be tuned in to the In­au­gu­ra­tion of the 45th Pres­i­dent of the United States, Mr. Don­ald J. Trump. A prime func­tion of a leader is to keep hope alive. He had a strong mes­sage and in­spired tens of thou­sands to come out to his cam­paign ral­lies across Amer­ica, day af­ter day for months, and as a re­sult over­whelm­ingly won the elec­toral col­lege and the vote of 63 mil­lion Amer­i­cans, white, black, male, fe­male etc. It is dis­heart­en­ing (from my view­point) to see the petu­lance of many democrats in power as they re­bel­liously shun the voice of the peo­ple, vow­ing to boy­cott this his­tor­i­cal, peace­ful trans­fer of power. What a bunch of sour grapes! Any­way, we will wait and watch and see and maybe even the naysay­ers will soon be cheer­ing him on. I don’t think I have ever seen the press so an­i­mated, many of them might even be­come true jour­nal­ists again...let’s hope for the best! And I hope you en­joy the slightly warmer weather for the next few days as we push through to the end of the month...cheers!
