I’m sure we are all look­ing for­ward to the warm weather that is fore­cast for the com­ing week. I’m not quite ready to pull out my heavy sweaters and put away the short pants.

The Mun­son 300 Raf­fle Draw lucky win­ners for Septem­ber 10 were Randy and Jes­sica Sharpe. Con­grat­u­la­tions, that makes you part of the sec­ond time win­ner club. Ev­ery­one will want to buy their tickets from you for the 2017 raf­fle.

Par­ent Link is of­fer­ing a free “Stay & Play” pro­gram in Mor­rin. This is a great way to con­nect and meet other par­ents and of­fers an op­por­tu­nity for chil­dren to meet and so­cial­ize with other chil­dren, and par­tic­i­pate in en­rich­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. This FREE pro­gram is for par­ents or care­givers with chil­dren 0-6yrs. Older sib­lings al­ways wel­come. The pro­gram in­cludes free play (puz­zles, blocks, cas­tles, play­dough and more), as well as some great art or sci­ence, singing songs, and read­ing pic­ture books. The pro­gram runs Thurs­days 10:00 to 11:30 am in the Mor­rin United Church; Septem­ber 29 to Oc­to­ber 27 (Hal­loween Party on Oc­to­ber. 27) and Novem­ber 17 to De­cem­ber 8 (Christ­mas Party on De­cem­ber 8). Pro­grams start again in Jan­uary. For more in­for­ma­tion call Yvonne at 403-8205157.

School is in full swing and all four vol­ley­ball teams are get­ting started. The Se­nior Girls have al­ready been to a tour­na­ment in Cam­rose.

The An­nual Awards event is sched­uled for Oc­to­ber 21 at 7:00 at the school gym.

There was an out­stand­ing turn out for the Di­nosaur Val­ley Half Marathon, 10K and 5K on Sun­day, Septem­ber 11. It was so nice to see fam­i­lies out en­joy­ing the day to­gether. Thank you to all the spon­sors and vol­un­teers who helped to make this such a great event in our com­mu­nity.

It was with mixed emo­tion that I heard the old, old Mun­son Hall burned down early Sun­day morn­ing. There were many great events held in that old build­ing. I re­mem­ber sit­ting along the wall watch­ing the adults dance to Bobby Hoy and the Bad­lan­ders. They went round and round and round and round the dance floor. I hope the young peo­ple of our com­mu­nity will build mem­o­ries like that in our new hall.

Have a great week.
