Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

I would like to send out a big thank you to all the sup­port­ers of this years’ Spring Fling sup­per and dessert auc­tion. It was a huge suc­cess with 26 beau­ti­ful live auc­tion items that ranged from an im­pres­sive multi-lay­ered Cana­dian pride con­fec­tionery cre­ation; pies of many flavours - Saska­toon, flap­per, cherry, le­mon meringue; cream cheese, whipped cream, candy cov­ered cakes; old fam­ily recipes of cook­ies, muffins, loaves of bread and dough­nuts that our bid­ders knew would be de­li­cious and worth that high bid; and, of course, choco­late, choco­late and choco­late de­lights. There was some­thing for every­one and it sure re­flected in the bid­ding as the items av­er­aged $650.00. The silent auc­tion items also gen­er­ated a good deal of fun rev­elry be­tween friends and neigh­bours. Thanks again to our auc­tion­eer and his crew, Travis Caweizel and his dad, Craig, and sis­ter, Brit­tany, as they worked hard to grab those bids from the crowd and get the do­na­tions flow­ing for the Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety. They sure gen­er­ated a lot of laugh­ter along the way as well. In to­tal, our com­mu­nity gen­er­ously raised $17,598.00 to­ward the up­keep and gen­eral rev­enues of the Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety as we con­tinue on for an­other year of fun ac­tiv­i­ties.

On Thurs­day, April 26, our lo­cal 4-H youth will be out and about col­lect­ing bot­tles and bat­ter­ies for their an­nual re­cy­cling fundraiser. If you haven’t been called or you find that your re­cy­clables are still un­der snow, they will be will­ing to come by af­ter this date to col­lect, just give Jill and Kent Holowath a call at 403-368-3733. They will also be hav­ing their Mock Achievement field day at the Rum­sey Ag Grounds on Sun­day, April 29 where they bring in their calves and give them that fi­nal train­ing to pre­pare them for the show ring on June 4. Feel free to come to Rum­sey on Sun­day and watch our youth in ac­tion as they work with their calves and learn new things.

Linda Helmer stopped in to let me know about the St. Mary’s Lodge birth­day party from April. Donna Sen­gaus was the host­ess with three birthdays to cel­e­brate. In Ex­tended care, Chris­tel Ja­cob and Ma­bel Baker. In the Lodge, Leo Knievel was the only cel­e­brant. In May, the birth­day party will be moved to Tues­day, May 22, be­cause of the long week­end. Pat Hatt will be the host­ess. If you would like to join in on the fun, con­tact Linda Helmer as they are al­ways look­ing for new vol­un­teers.
