Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Darcy Gra­ham 403-772-3747

Well, fi­nally we are through with this long chilly win­ter month...what a re­lief! A lit­tle snow and a bit more cold has come our way. And with the end of Jan­uary, Mor­rin ju­nior/se­nior high stu­dents have com­pleted mid-term exams and I am sure they and their teach­ers will all be anx­iously await­ing their test re­sults. Moms and Dads and care­givers, please make a note...there is a teacher prep/no school for stu­dents day, to­day, Wednesday Jan­uary 31, a re­fresh­ing breather after all the hard work and study­ing.

So, Fe­bru­ary is Heart Month and the Mor­rin Lions will be host­ing the an­nual Valen­tine Break­fast at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 11 from 9:00 a.m. - noon. Ad­mis­sion by do­na­tion, re­ceipts will be is­sued upon re­quest and as cus­tom­ary, the col­lec­tion will be passed on to the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion.

And I re­ported ear­lier this month that the Bloom­ing Prairies Drop In Cen­ter had sprung a leak when the hot wa­ter pipe burst. The wa­ter did some dam­age but the room has been dried out and put back to­gether and is open and us­able for ac­tiv­i­ties in the in­terim while the group awaits the in­sur­ance ad­just­ment for re­pairs to come.

And I take no plea­sure in let­ting you all know that Sandy Wolf has re­cently been di­ag­nosed with ALS, a dis­ease that re­lent­lessly at­tacks the func­tion of the mus­cles. Sandy has served our com­mu­nity for many years in var­i­ous prac­ti­cal ways...run­ning her neat and cozy home hair sa­lon (in­clud­ing host­ing the new kinder­garten class at her shop each fall for a walkover field trip) tak­ing a turn at ful­fill­ing a coun­cil term and car­ing for her friends and fam­ily and clients all along the way.

Our thoughts and prayers and as­sis­tance are be­hind you dear Sandy and Rene as it is now our turn to serve. With their knowl­edge, per­mis­sion, and deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion, a trust fund has been set up at the Moun­tain View Credit Union to help with med­i­cal costs and road trips to and from the hos­pi­tal. Lets all pitch in and give them a boost...every lit­tle bit counts! As Sandy is warmly em­braced with love and strength from fam­ily and friends, and with fight­ing hope­ful spirit, we pray she may re­spond to treat­ment/tests and re­ceive miraculous divine heal­ing from the great beloved Physi­cian above...in Je­sus name, amen.
