Morrin Community Calendar
And we have our local White Elephant Sale coming up right here in Morrin at the Morrin Community Hall. Not sure what the date will be just yet...stay tuned on that as you sort through any gently used items you would like to donate. And for a modest admission, the Hall Board will be hosting the annual lovely, delicious Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday, May 14 from 9:00 – noon, come one come all!
Also, the 4H kids have been out and about with a recycling drive with ongoing pickup (call Melanie Nelson 403-7720000) as they gear up for the April 22 sorting blitz and then Achievement night set for Wednesday, April 26.
So...sad news...we lost someone dear. In the 10 years we have lived in Morrin, we have met many acquaintances, but very few friends...this man was a good friend and good neighbor to us. He was a man of few words but sincere, he called a spade a spade and when he spoke...you listened. He offered to spray our weeds when we went on summer holidays. He gave generously of the bounty of his small backyard garden and flowers. When he made homemade butter/coconut caramels at Christmas we often got a batch. A good family man, he loved his community and that inspired him to be a guiding voice on the village council for many years... even right up to his last days, helping to direct the affairs, care and maintenance of the Village of Morrin.
And so, dear neighbor, Al Bremer, so hard to say goodbye. You had a long, rich life but still, I feel you were taken too soon, too quick. One thing that gives me comfort today is to put my heart and talent to work and write about the good man you were. You always thought I was a good reporter, so this one’s for you Al. It will be bittersweet to look outside now and see your place and know that you are gone, but to a better place, with no suffering or pain and one with a glorious garden and village. I don’t know what heaven is like, or what we will get to do. I just know Al had his heart in the right place and honored God in his life, work and family. And Al, snooker champ, I hope you get to clean up the table every day. I will miss you. I will miss your wave. I will miss your smile and your
