Rum­sey & Dis­trict Regis­ter

Happy Hal­loween, ev­ery­one, I hope you will be en­ter­tained by many lit­tle gob­lins and ghouls this evening. I have heard the farm­ers of the com­mu­nity made good use of this past week’s beau­ti­ful warm weather com­plet­ing many fields with grain fill­ing ev­ery bin and grain bag. Though it sounds like this week will be a lit­tle cooler, we still might have good enough weather for the last few fields to be emp­tied off and some more bal­ing done for win­ter feed. Good luck to ev­ery­one as we wrap up the fall sea­son.

The Fall Sup­per is planned for this com­ing Satur­day, Novem­ber 3, start­ing at 5:00 p.m. I hope you got a call to come in and help or con­tribute some­thing as this is the one true potluck-type sup­per in our com­mu­nity that brings ev­ery­one to­gether for a de­li­cious meal and good com­pany.

Linda Helmer gave me this news a while ago but I think it is still rel­e­vant. Elaine Weisse was host­ess at the last St. Mary Lodge Birth­day Party held on Oc­to­ber 12 with only a few birthdays to cel­e­brate for the month of Oc­to­ber. In Ex­tended Care, Alice Raczak and Marvin Rec­tor were cel­e­brat­ing and in the Lodge, Mar­i­lyn Roberts was the only birth­day girl. The next party will be held on Novem­ber 19 with Mary New­ton serv­ing as host­ess.

The Rum­sey-Row­ley 4-H Beef Club got off to a good start this year with some new mem­bers bring­ing their mem­ber­ship up to 11. They had their awards ban­quet this past Mon­day so I will have more news on the re­cip­i­ents in next weeks’ col­umn. Their first weigh day will be held on Sun­day, Novem­ber 11 start­ing at 1:00 p.m. at Holowath’s ranch. This will give ev­ery­one time in the morn­ing to at­tend a Re­mem­brance Ser­vice. There will be a ser­vice at the Rum­sey Drop-In start­ing just be­fore 11:00 a.m. so come and join the lo­cals there.

We are on the look-out for more ven­dors for our Christ­mas Mar­ket on Satur­day, Novem­ber 24. Be sure to call Patty at 403368-3820 or Baylee at 403-4438384 to sign up. We wel­come all home busi­nesses and home­made prod­ucts.

The Rum­sey Li­brary has just re­ceived their first copies of the 2018 Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dars. I tried some­thing dif­fer­ent this year in that I have two sizes to choose from; the larger 11”X 14” fam­ily cal­en­dar (great for all that sched­ul­ing) and the stan­dard size 8”X 11” cal­en­dar (for those of us that have less than 42 events per week to keep track of!). The cal­en­dars are made of a hard stock pa­per with a spi­ral bind­ing. The pho­tos are re­ally beau­ti­ful this year again and we have new win­ners who shared their tal­ents with us so come in and see what is new. I will have them avail­able at the craft show in Novem­ber and maybe a few at the fall sup­per if I re­mem­ber.

Have a great week.
