Rumsey & District Register
I hope everyone has been enjoying this bit of sunshine after that last down pour. I think I can finally take off the rubber boots when doing the chores. The M orrin Grads are getting excited as they approach the final weeks of school. There will be exams to get completed but also their graduation ceremonies will be held at the end of the month, June 30, a tt he R umsey Hall. We have quitea few Rumsey students graduating this year: Quinn Nelson, daughter of Me lanie and Tracey Nelson, Levi Hampton, son of Alan and Gwen Hampton, Shelby Primrose, daughter of Tim and Betty Primrose, Shelbi Couturier, daughter to Terry and Sabrina Couturier, Ky ra Grid ley and Karson Gridley, daughters of Me lanie and R andy Grid le ya nd Jamie H ussey, daughter of Jim Hussey and Elizabeth Wylie. The other grads from M orrin are Kayla Adams, Bray den Up ton, Braydon Davidson, Nicole Sharpe, Kiara Flot ten and Austin Charlton. At one point this class had t he distinction of teaching 3 sets of twins! Also, there are quite a few ‘ youngest in t he family’ children within this class which also marks a milestone for those parents who will join the ‘ empty-nesters’ club. Good luck to all the students as they work hard towards a promising future. Please let me know if I have missed a graduating student from our area.
The Rumsey Sports Days are coming up quick. They are planned for July 14– 16 and it seems like a ways away now but time always goes too fast in the summer time. We still have space for one more team if anyone is interested, give me a call at 403-368-3820. There will be lots of b all played of course but also hot pancake breakfasts each morning, roast beef supper on Saturday night, Movie night at the hall on Friday night for all ages, dance in the agriplex on Saturday night. The 2018 Morrin Grad class will be running the concession all weekend including during the danceso there will be lots of good things to eat. Don’t forget to support them. It should bea fun weekend.
The S. T.A.R.S ride is set for Sunday, August 13 down at the TL Bar Ranch. You can get your pledge sheets from Ernie Goddard and Mary Newton and start collecting now. It is such a good cause that it is easy to fill up a pledge sheet. There is a minimum of $20 in pl edges required to go on the ride.
I hope you enjoy this weeks’ joke:
A cat die sand goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, “You have been a good cat all of these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask.”
The cats says ,“Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors.”
God says ,“Say no more .” And instantly, a fluffy pillow appears.
A few days later ,6 mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made the cat. Them ice said ,“All our lives we’ ve had to run. Cats, dogs and even women with brooms have chased us. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn’t have to run anymore.”
God says ,“Say no more .” And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.
About a week later, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently wakes him and asks, “How are you doing? Are you happy here?”
The cat yawns and stretches and says, “Oh, I’ve never been happier in my life. And those Meals on Wheels you’ve been sending over are the best!” Have a great week!
