Mother’s Day is this Sun­day so I hope you are think­ing good thoughts of your mom all this week, heck, you should have lov­ing thoughts all year long! The Rum­sey Fire­men will be prepar­ing their an­nual de­li­cious break­fast on Sun­day, May 13, for all Moms in the area along with their fam­i­lies so plan to head in to Rum­sey. The break­fast will be served be­tween 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. so don’t be late.

The Rum­sey His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety had a meet­ing last week and they have de­cided to go ahead with plans to cel­e­brate Rum­sey’s Cen­ten­nial next year, 2019, on the week­end of July 13 and 14. The Rum­sey Cen­ten­nial com­mit­tee will meet on June 13, 2018, 7:30 p.m. at the hall, to cre­ate some pre­lim­i­nary plans for this big event. If you are will­ing to help out, they will hap­pily wel­come any ex­tra hands. One thing for sure, there will be a pa­rade so if you want to put in an en­try you can con­tact Dariel McNaughton. All ideas are wel­come.

The Rum­sey Con­nec­tion Golf Tour­na­ment is sched­uled for Thurs­day, June 21. This has been a fun event to join in on for many years now and with new or­ga­niz­ers it is sure to con­tinue. Please con­tact Danna Nel­son at 403-321-0195 or Mitch Herd at 403-8205346 to en­ter. En­ter early so you are cer­tain to se­cure a spot. The en­try fee in­cludes 9 holes of golf, cart, sup­per and prizes. Shot gun start at 5:00 p.m.

As the ground warms up and ev­ery­one starts plan­ning their gar­den and flower beds, the Red Deer River Gar­den Club would love all the young ones in our com- mu­nity to con­sider plant­ing a Ju­nior Gar­den plot. The max­i­mum size of the plot is 12 feet by 12 feet, there is a list on Rum­sey’s com­mu­nity events page on Face­book with the list of re­quired veg­eta­bles and flow­ers but the rest is up to your imag­i­na­tion. If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing in the fun please regis­ter with Mary New­ton at 403-368-2121 and she can fill you in on all the de­tails. The Gar­den Show is on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 29. The plots will be judged dur­ing the week prior to the show.

Also, keep in mind as you are tak­ing your sum­mer pic­tures, that the Rum­sey Library will be hold­ing our Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar photo con­test at the Gar­den Show again this year. Cat­e­gories are each month of the year plus the cover page, each pic­ture must be de­vel­oped into a 5”X7” size, taken within the last 3 years and from the lo­cal area. You can bring your pic­tures to me any time of the year and I will make sure they are on dis­play at the show if you are un­able to at­tend. I would love to see more en­tries this year. Gig­gle of the day:

One of the youth league soc­cer coaches didn’t care much for my ref­er­ee­ing and had no prob­lem let­ting me know it. Fed up, I threat­ened him with a penalty if he didn’t can it. He calmed down, but an older woman took up where he left off.

“You’d bet­ter con­trol your side­line.” I warned the coach.

The coach turned to the woman and barked, “Knock it off, Mom!”

Have a great week.
