Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

Thank you to all who at­tended the An­nual Christ­mas mar­ket this year. It was a won­der­ful suc­cess for ven­dors and shop­pers as they braved the roads to join in on the fun. The lunch was all sold out so we will def­i­nitely plan for more soup and chili next year. Later in the af­ter­noon we had the plea­sure of watch­ing all our chil­dren from the com­mu­nity and sur­round­ing area en­joy the games and visit from Santa. It’s al­ways fun to watch a lit­tle ones’ re­ac­tion as they are put on Santa’s knee. It’s usu­ally po­lar op­po­sites of ut­most joy to to­tal ter­ror as they as­sess this big, jolly bearded fel­low who is try­ing so hard to get them to smile for the cam­era.

The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety’s An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing will be held next Mon­day, De­cem­ber 10, start­ing at 7:00 p.m. We wel­come all ideas and con­tri­bu­tions from the com­mu­nity at this meet­ing so come and join us and see what is hap­pen­ing be­hind the scenes.

The Rum­sey-Row­ley 4-H Beef Club will be hav­ing their De­cem­ber meet­ing on the 12th and wel­come all dona­tions to the Drumheller food bank at this meet­ing so keep that in mind if you have a lit­tle ex­tra in your pantry that you could send along to a fam­ily more needy.

This might be short no­tice but a quick re­minder that the Elks Bingo will be at the Rum­sey Hall this evening, De­cem­ber 5 start­ing at 7:00 p.m. This is such a good or­ga­ni­za­tion to sup­port and a fun way to do it. If you can’t make it tonight, they will be re­peat­ing their bingo fun in Big Val­ley next Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 12, start­ing again at 7:00 p.m. The Big Val­ley ladies club which has Rum­sey mem­bers will be serv­ing snacks and pop at each event.

The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety has de­cided to host a New Year’s Eve Party this year at the Hall. It will be on De­cem­ber 31 with doors open­ing at 8:30 p.m. and mu­sic to start at 9:00 p.m. Come in and visit with your neigh­bours.

Linda Helmer stopped in with news from the St. Mary’s Lodge birth­day club. They held their birth­day party on No­vem­ber 19 with Mary New­ton host­ing the event. There were quite a few birth­days to cel­e­brate this month; in ex­tended care there were Martha Kruger, Ge­orge Fabian, Eva Young, Jean Sarasin, Melvin Lin­de­man and Marth Do­erk­sen. In the Lodge, Roy McNeil was the only cel­e­brant. The next party will be held on De­cem­ber 17 with Linda Helmer host­ing. Keep in mind that if you ever want to join in with this fun club, it doesn’t take much of your time but sure leaves you with a warm feel­ing in your heart for bring­ing a lit­tle sun­shine to the se­niors.

Have a great week, every­one.
