Rum­sey & District Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

I would like to ex­press my deep­est con­do­lences to the Michie fam­ily with the pass­ing of Ge­orge this past Tues­day. Ge­orge and Linda have been a part of our com­mu­nity for many years liv­ing, farm­ing, grow­ing a fam­ily and con­tribut­ing to com­mu­nity events in both Rum­sey and Row­ley for many years. It will be hard to see a main­stay such as Ge­orge dis­ap­pear from our so­cial gath­er­ings in the hall and curl­ing rink. He will be missed by many. The fu­neral will be held on Thurs­day, March 2 at the Rum­sey Hall at 2:00 p.m.

The Mixed Dou­bles bon­spiel wrapped up this past Satur­day af­ter some long nights of curl­ing ac­tiv­ity in the rink. There were 32 teams of 2 en­tered this year so the curl­ing went late on both Thurs­day and Fri­day night then all day Satur­day but the games were en­joyed by ev­ery­one. The 1st in the 1st was won by Shelby Primrose and Justin Miller af­ter a very close game against Betty Camp­bell and John Schofer. Third in the 1st event went to Mark McNaughton and Danielle Bur­rows with fourth in the 1st go­ing to Tammy and David Web­ster. In the Sec­ond event, Diane Blanchette and Justin Wolfe came away with first spot leav­ing Peggy Free­man and Steve Webb with sec­ond. Third in the Sec­ond event was won by Tracey and Larry Coveney with Dawn and Barry Ma­son tak­ing home 4th. In the Third event, Joanne and Rick Schi­noor suc­ceeded in tak­ing 1st place leav­ing Ch­eryl Richen and Mitch Martin with sec­ond. Third in the Third went to Ser­ena Michie and her dad, Ian with fourth spot go­ing to Derek and Claire Kry­wcum. I have to con­grat­u­late Jackie and Brooks Watts for putting on such an ex­cel­lent bon­spiel and sup­per with beau­ti­ful prizes for ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pated in the event. Thank you again for all your hard work and love of the game. The next event on the Curl­ing cal­en­dar will be the Mixed Bon­spiel in March 6 - 11. If you are in­ter­ested in sign­ing up, call Brooks or Jackie to get your­self reg­is­tered – 403-3682357. The curl­ing sea­son is rapidly com­ing to an end for an­other year and with that in mind the Ag So­ci­ety will be once again auc­tion­ing off the ice spots and boards at the Mixed Bon­spiel sup­per on Satur­day night, March 11. Keep in mind if you are the win­ning bid­der, this will guar­an­tee you two years of ad­ver­tis­ing from one night of fun bid­ding.

Judy Stone­man was the host­ess at St. Mary’s Lodge in Trochu this past week to cel­e­brate Fe­bru­ary’s birth­days and there were 3 birth­days on the cal­en­dar. In Ex­tended Care, Bessie Fraser and Elmer Wik and in the Lodge, Bernie Boy­den. Thank you to Judy and the other helpers who give of their time to do this event. Bev Mor­gan will be the host­ess on March 20.

From the mouths of babes:

Joan in­vited some peo­ple to din­ner. At the ta­ble, she turned to her six-year-old daugh­ter and said, ‘ Would you like to say the bless­ing?’

‘I wouldn’t know what to say,’ the girl replied.

‘Just say what you hear Mommy say,’ Joan an­swered.

The girl thought for a minute, then bowed her head and said, ‘Lord, why on earth did I in­vite all th­ese peo­ple to din­ner?”

Have a great week.
