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.
