Well the fields are get­ting a good soak from the heav­ens this grow­ing sea­son. I see sun­shine and blue sky this morn- ing so hope farm­ers are off to a good start and that the seeded ground is sprout­ing and thriv­ing with all the mois­ture and the warmth.

And with only two weeks to go, things are wind­ing down at Mor­rin School. Of­fice work­ers Shan­non and Kim have sent out a let­ter to par­ents that reg­is­tra­tion for the next school year will be on­go­ing through the month of June. So, next time you are at the school you may pick up your reg­is­tra­tion pack­age for your child. If you can­not make it to the school be­fore the end of June please con­tact the of­fice 403-7723838 and they will ar­range a way to have it sent to your home.

And the Mor­rin School Ele­men­tary stu­dents are look­ing for­ward to their June 26 yearend-fun-field trip and this year they all get to go to Her­itage Park again for the day. They will de­part from the school at 9:00 a.m. and re­turn at 5:00 p.m. I re­mem­ber tag­ging along last time and we sure had a great day there ex­plor­ing and play­ing. Hav­ing a park like this so close is a treat and such an in­ter­est­ing way to learn the his­tory of our fore­fa­thers and ear­lier home­stead­ers. It is so good for young peo­ple to see this valu­able her­itage and way of life pre­served. I al­ways have a twinge of nos­tal­gia walk­ing through the olden days imag­in­ing the peo­ple then, their fam­i­lies and their lives. It is some­how com­fort­ing to go back in time and take a ride on the an­tique carousel and cater­pil­lar and won­der about those who rode them back in the day. Any­way, it is one of the finest her­itage parks I have seen so wish­ing a wonderful day to ev­ery­one! And then on June 28, they all get to go to Three Hills to en­joy the swim­ming and splash park for a fi­nal romp. Let’s hope the group gets nice warm sun­shiny days to en­joy the out­door ac­tiv­i­ties.

And on be­half of the Mor­rin and District His­tory Book Com­mit­tee, Diana Wolf sends out an im­por­tant an­nounce­ment. The group put their ideas to­gether and came up with “totes of cheer” to help raise money, to pub­lish a new Mor­rin and District His­tory Book. If you would like to take a look, the pack­ages will be on dis­play along with raf­fle tick­ets, at the Moun­tain View Credit Union and also at the Western Fi­nan­cial Group Of­fice in town and thank you for your sup­port!

Also Bad­lands Bucks and Bows have been draw­ing more and more folks down to the Mor­rin Arena Sport­splex to try out the new Archery Range. If you do not have a mem­ber­ship, there is a dropin fee. The group also has a Face­book page you may check out for in­for­ma­tion and up­dates through­out the sum­mer.

Fi­nally, just wanted to make a cou­ple of cor­rec­tions on ear­lier re­ports... the stu­dents that will be work­ing for the Sum­mer Fun Pro­gram are not from Mor­rin School, they have been hired through FCSS and also Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award win­ner Quinn Nel­son is from the Mor­rin area, not Rum­sey, silly me! So, carry on and bless­ings to all... cheers!
