Hello 2018. Sorry for the lack of news over the holidays but we are back to the usual routine now.
There are several Munson 300 Raffle draw winners to announce. For the December 23 draw, it was Judy Cunningham of Rosedale and our final draw for the 2017 Raffle was for $1,000 and Brenda Daly was the lucky winner.
The Munson and Area Community Association committee was very busy through the month of December and managed to sell all 400 tickets for the 2018 Raffle. The first draw of the year took place on January 6 for a bonus raffle of $500. The lucky winner was Amy Adams! Congratulations Amy. I’m sure the funds will be put to good use at University. What a great way to start the year. Thank you everyone who purchased a ticket this year to support the Community Association. It is greatly appreciated.
On January 27, there will be a special event at the Munson Community Hall. The event is a Beach Bash featuring live music by High 5, Drumheller’s newest dance band. Some of the faces in the band are familiar from the old Band of Coots from a few years ago.
The evening will include prizes for best beachwear, hula and surfing contests. Light lunch will be included. Doors open at 7:00. For more information and tickets call David Eberth at 403-8206536. Sounds like a great way to beat the winter doldrums.
The Morrin Alumni Volleyball tournament will take place on February 3. All Morrin School Alumni and friends are eligible to play. Contact Charlese Gridley for more information 403772-2460.
It seems like January is a good time to get rid of some clutter and start fresh. Let’s keep the stuff we don’t want out of the landfill and pass it along to people who can use it. It’s such a great feeling to give items a second or third life.
Have a great week, count your blessings every day and be kind to one another.
