Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

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

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 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
