Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

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

Good day to ev­ery­one and a bright sunny one it is! We had a lovely week­end in Three Hills tak­ing in 5 shows of our daugh­ter’s bal­let pro­duc­tion of “Thum­be­lina”... a beau­ti­ful story with won­der­ful mu­sic and strong danc­ing...en­joyed it im­mensely! And the weather was gor­geous un­til a chilly storm blew in late Satur­day night. Any­way, the sun is shin­ing bright to­day and looks like it is sup­posed to be a warm balmy week. Soon, we shall see the field­work ac­tiv­ity be­gin again.

And as things warm up and dry up, it is time to clean up ha-ha. Com­mu­nity teams have been and will con­tinue to be out and about re­mov­ing the de­bris of win­ter. If you see any crews out in the ditches, slow down and give them a wave or a honk of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

And with cleanup in full swing, the big metal bins will be com­ing to town June 1 and 2 and will be set up across from the Vil­lage Of­fice, and as usual, one for metal and one for other items. Th­ese bins fill up quickly and are avail­able for Mor­rin res­i­dents only. Please note the land­fill will NOT ac­cept chem­i­cals, paint cans, batteries, tires, Freon ap­pli­ances, build­ing ma­te­ri­als, or propane tanks. If you have any ques­tions you may con­tact An­nette at the Vil­lage Of­fice 403-7723870. Also note THURO will be com­ing to town a few days later on June 5 to flush all the un­der­ground lines. This flush­ing pro­ce­dure may at times cause a bit of backup pres­sure and folks are ad­vised to keep toi­let lids closed when not in use on that day.

So, the big, re­ally ex­cit­ing news to­day...wait for it... “Bad­lands Bucks and Bows” Grand Open­ing is com­ing soon...hip-hip-hooray! It has been in­spir­ing to fol­low the group as they planned out the club and then started the big job of ren­o­vat­ing the old curl­ing rink in the Mor­rin Arena Sportsplex to trans­form it into a pretty cool in­door archery range. The peo­ple in­volved have shown a lot of good pro­duc­tive team­work and ca­ma­raderie to make this hap­pen... well done! Thank you to who­ever started it and to all the helpers along the way. It is a re­ally good thing for our com­mu­nity and mem­bers have been meet­ing ev­ery Mon­day, Wed­nes­day and Fri­day from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. to go af­ter the tar­gets. And no sur­prise, the Mor­rin Lions have stepped up once again in prac­ti­cal aid. This time around they have made a gen­er­ous do­na­tion to help get the club on their feet and the money has been used to pur­chase a num­ber of youth size bows. Any­way, this is go­ing to be a happy party to cel­e­brate all the ef­fort and suc­cess! So, this Satur­day, May 13 from 11:00 – 4:00 p.m. come and see! This Satur­day, they will waive the drop-in fee that day if you just want to come and hang out and try your hand at this in­ter­est­ing, chal­leng­ing sport. They will also have an on­go­ing silent auc­tion through­out the day, and they plan to pro­vide a nice lunch and even cake, how about that! The Mor­rin Lions mem­bers will be there for a photo op so make sure you are look­ing your best ha-ha. It is go­ing to be a great com­mu­nity event so if you’re in town, then come on down...ev­ery­one is wel­come!

And lastly, this Sun­day, May 14, we also get to en­joy a very worth­while, time­honored tra­di­tion...Mother’s Day. A de­li­cious Mother’s Day brunch will be served up once again at the Hall from 9:00 – noon by the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall As­so­ci­a­tion mem­bers. This hol­i­day is a spe­cial day that has been set-aside for over a hun­dred years and ac­cord­ing to a writ­ten de­scrip­tion, it is... “a cel­e­bra­tion hon­or­ing the mother of the fam­ily, as well as the moth­er­hood, ma­ter­nal bonds, and the in­flu­ence of moth­ers in so­ci­ety”...a pretty grand day for a long time in Cana­dian cul­ture and in many places around the world. So, God bless all you moth­ers out there and all of you who in some cases love and are loved like moth­ers...cheers!
