So...it was a pretty, cold, snowy, “spring-ahead” Sun­day in Mor­rin, and Satur­day for that mat­ter as well. Don’t put your snow shov­els away yet folks. Thanks to neigh­bor Rod who fired up his snow-blower ma­chine and cleared off our side­walks a few times over the week­end...so much ap­pre­ci­ated. I no­ticed even our pub­lic works fore­man David Benci tried to stay ahead of the re­lent­less flur­ries and spent some time plow­ing the vil­lage roads on Satur­day...prob­a­bly not the way you wanted to spend part of your week­end and day off but thanks Dave! March has def­i­nitely come in like a lion so hope­fully it will be go­ing out like a lamb as the old say­ing goes.

And the Mor­rin Arena Sportsplex was a flurry of ac­tiv­ity this past Sun­day as the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Club mem­bers were pumped to per­form the yearend Car­ni­val “Dance Party”! A lot of these kids have been skat­ing for a num­ber of years and they sure have come a long way. Thanks to the club for all the hours of prepa­ra­tion through­out the sea­son, and for put­ting on an­other great show and also to par­ents, friends, helpers and com­mu­nity for all the cheer­ing and sup­port.

And as has been the cus­tom, fol­low­ing Car­ni­val, there will be free cook­ies and hot choco­late on hand dur­ing pub­lic skat­ing this Sun­day, March 19 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. com­pli­ments of the Mor­rin Lions. The Lions are a gen­er­ous group as they fre­quently put on events, make a lot of do­na­tions and just do nice things...they re­cently gave a lit­tle money to the Mor­rin Li­brary to go to­ward put­ting to­gether a new first aid kit. And as this year marks 25 years for the Mor­rin Lions, they are plan­ning to host a party at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall on Satur­day, April 8 at 7:30 p.m. with live mu­sic, snacks and fun for all and tick­ets are avail­able at the Moun­tain View Credit Union.

Also on Tues­day, March 21 at 7:00 p.m. the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall As­so­ci­a­tion will hold their an­nual gen­eral meet­ing and ev­ery­one from the com­mu­nity is wel­come and en­cour­aged to at­tend.

And, would like to put in an­other plug for the new Archery Club in Mor­rin...Bad­lands Bucks and Bows. Me­lanie Monaco is post­ing info on the Mor­rin Cor­ner and Area page if you want to give her a call or check it out. The range is ren­o­vated, rolling and ready for prac­tice Mon­day, Wednes­day and Fri­day from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. in the old curl­ing rink at the Mor­rin Arena Sportsplex.

And lastly, I guess the next big thing com­ing up and re­ally quick...the Drumheller Mu­sic/ Arts Fes­ti­val and wish­ing all the best to all the par­tic­i­pants and in­struc­tors. And, in a month’s time...Easter cel­e­bra­tions! Cheers!
