And the weather is warm­ing up nicely after that heavy, wet snow­storm blew through the area last Sun­day and Mon­day...whoa! Thank­fully, it was warm enough that some of the snow fall­ing was melt­ing dur­ing the day, mak­ing vil­lage streets pass­able, but the high­ways sure were a mess! Grate­ful to the ATCO elec­tric com­pany for restor­ing power after it was down for most of Mon­day. And sure is nice a week later, to see the wind gone, sun shin­ing and snow melted.

So, the coun­cil elec­tions are com­ing up soon on Oc­to­ber 16 and I was asked to an­nounce that the se­niors have in­vited the can­di­dates in our area and are plan­ning an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion at 7:00 p.m. in Mor­rin at the Bloom­ing Prairie Se­niors Drop In Cen­ter on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13.

And I see the work is pro­gress­ing on First Av­enue North...the ce­ment side­walk foot­ings were poured and have cured nicely. It looks like the street has been cov­ered with a coat of oil and as­phalt comes next. It will be so nice for the res­i­dents on the two-block stretch to have a nice smooth sur­face for driv­ing and park­ing be­fore win­ter. The sewer/ wa­ter re­place­ment/street re­pair pro­ject is done in many stages. Thanks to the cur­rent coun­cil and ad­min­is­tra­tion for get­ting it all or­ga­nized, con­tracted out and for see­ing it through to com­ple­tion.

Also, you may have no­ticed a tem­po­rary garbage re­moval sys­tem has been hired in Public Works Fore­man David Benci’s short­term ab­sence and we ap­pre­ci­ate that the ser­vice is be­ing pro­vided.

And a lit­tle Mor­rin Schoo- brag­ging to do, Grade 10 freshies were out in groups with the Grade 12 stu­dent masters on Fri­day haha...al­ways fun to get them to do a bit for a do­na­tion to STARS. I read on the Mor­rin school page that the stu­dents have raised over $42,000.00 over the years for this great res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tion. And this year, their goal was to raise $1500.00 and I be­lieve they got that and more...well done! And one other note­wor­thy school item...Levi Hamp­ton was pre­sented with a PLRD Award of Dis­tinc­tion. It goes to a Grade 12 stu­dent who grad­u­ates with the high­est av­er­age mark in the di­vi­sion, based on re­sults in English 30, SS 30, Math 30, and two of Physics 30, Chem 30, Bio 30 and math 31...so good job Levi Hamp­ton, your hard work paid off! And Awards night at the Mor­rin School is booked for 7:00 p.m. on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20.

And the 4H Multi-Club was all set to hold their first meet­ing last Mon­day and the storm hit so, the meet­ing was post­poned un­til last Thurs­day. The club meets the first Mon­day of each month and you may con­tact Me­lanie Nel­son (403772-0000) for more info on the projects with lead­ers in weld­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, band, equine, ca­nine, sports and cleavers for 6-8 year olds.

And the Fall Sup­per at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall is com­ing up on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 25...time to get to­gether and cel­e­brate the har­vest.

So, hope you all had a good turkey day and time of thanks­giv­ing...so much to be grate­ful for...take a mo­ment to count your bless­ings! Cheers!
