Morrin Community Calendar
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!
