To fol­low these ex­cit­ing events, the club went on a ski trip to Canyon Ski Hill on Fe­bru­ary 21. We had 40 4-Her’s and fam­ily mem­bers ski. Some fam­i­lies also at- raspy-voiced, friendly greet­ing when I would per­chance meet you at the Mor­rin food store. And mostly, I will miss watch­ing you open your garage door, which is di­rectly across from my front win­dow. Al­most ev­ery morn­ing of ev­ery day for these past 10 years, af­ter get­ting my daugh­ter Charly off to school, I have no­ticed as you would drive out to get the mail and drive back. I dare­say, I will never look out­side my front win­dow and not think of you... funny how those lit­tle things come to mean so much.

There will be a me­mo­rial ser­vice for Al Bre­mer on Satur­day, May 20 at 2:00 p.m. at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall. tended the 4-H Night at the Cal­gary Flames on March 31. The club also held a food drive in Mor­rin on April 3, and col­lected canned food around town and do­nated the pro­ceeds to the Drumheller Sal­va­tion Army.

The club are gath­er­ing cans, bot­tles, bat­ter­ies, and elec­tron­ics from lo­cals for its An­nual Re­cy­cle Drive to raise funds for our club. So if you have any re­cy­cling you would like to do­nate call Me­lanie at 403-772-0000 be­fore April 22 and she will send a 4-Her to your door.

The Club’s achieve­ment Night is Wed­nes­day, April 26 at 6:30 p,m at the Mor­rin Hall. And so Al, last thoughts... thanks for your pres­ence, your in­tegrity, your sense of hu­mor, your unas­sum­ing way and wis­dom, your hard work, your com­mu­nity spirit, your friend­ship and your good in­flu­ence in so many of our lives. Thanks for car­ing. Thanks for teach­ing us. We won’t do as good as you but we will sure try to take care of things here and hold down the fort. Thanks for be­ing a good friend, ex­am­ple and en­cour­ager to us. God bless your dear wife Eleanor and fam­ily and the won­der­ful le­gacy you leave... “Blessed are they that mourn for they will be com­forted”.
