Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Cal­en­dar

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Darcy Gra­ham 403-772-3747

Well, sure do like that Fe­bru­ary break...SO nice to have a week off from the “busy” and the early school morn­ings, and the driv­ing trips to Three Hills for our daugh­ter’s dance classes be­fore March gets re­ally hec­tic with fes­ti­val per­for­mances. And it has warmed up a lit­tle but...still good to stay close to the fire­place. It has been plenty win­tery enough for out­door sports this year, es­pe­cially for snow­mo­bil­ers. This past Satur­day was a clear, calm, sunny day for a snow­mo­bile gath­er­ing and rally in Mor­rin...looked and sounded like a lot of fun!

So, let’s get things started with some 4H news. The Fe­bru­ary 13 Pub­lic Speak­ing Event was very pro­duc­tive...Ju­nior win­ners (1st 2nd 3rd) were Lilly Ro­bi­son, Me­lena Olsen and Hallee Ras­mussen...In­ter­me­di­ate win­ners were Ash­ley McNaughton, Brook­lyn Wright and Jacey Ras­mussen, Se­nior win­ners were Me­sha Olsen, Ser­ena Michie and Abi­gail Web­ster. The sole Se­nior Pre­sen­ta­tion 1st place award went to Kenton McNaughton...and we of­fer hearty con­grat­u­la­tions to all for a job well done!

And, next, mov­ing on with an up­date on how the Mor­rin Ag So­ci­ety is do­ing. Back on Jan­uary 3, 2018, there was an in­for­ma­tive ar­ti­cle in the Drumheller Mail that high­lighted what was in store and needed to keep the Mor­rin Arena run­ning. In the last 2 years, do­na­tions have been pour­ing in and the or­ga­ni­za­tion has em­braced lofty fundrais­ing ideas in hopes to re­pair/re­place fal­ter­ing op­er­at­ing equip­ment in the Sport­splex build­ing. And so, it is re­ally good news that the next big thing, the “Du­elling Pianos” con­cert com­ing up at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall on Satur­day, March 24, was sold out in record time! There may be a few seats left at the in­di­vid­ual ta­bles but all the ta­bles were bought quickly, so peo­ple know how im­por­tant this is and are ea­ger to help. Also, the Ag mem­bers cur­rently still have raf­fle tick­ets on hand to raise ex­tra money for the prize of a “side of beef” and the win­ning ticket for that will be drawn at the pi­ano con­cert on March 24. If you miss out on the con­cert and still wish to con­tribute, the so­ci­ety is gladly ac­cept­ing ad­di­tional do­na­tions (Tracy Nel­son 403-772-0000) and they will put them to good use. The group re­ally ap­pre­ci­ates all the tan­gi­ble com­mu­nity spirit and lo­cal sup­port and to have the goal in sight is very en­cour­ag­ing.

And lastly, we send get well wishes to Mor­rin School teacher Mr. Lerke and his wife Tanja as they are at home for an ex­tended time now re­cov­er­ing from in­juries sus­tained in a re­cent mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent. Prin­ci­pal Don Yavis sent out the word to please keep them in your thoughts and pray­ers as they rest and heal. In Mr. Lerke’s ab­sence, Stacey Hop­pins will come in to sub for the short-term while the school ad­ver­tises for a longer-term re­place­ment.

And so that is all for to­day...next up, we are soon on to March, thank good­ness! Cheers!
