Happy New Year every­one. I hope your hol­i­day sea­son was all you had hoped for.

The lucky win­ner of the Mun­son 400 Raf­fle draw for De­cem­ber 22 was Don­ald Adams and the big­ger win­ner for the fi­nal draw of the year on De­cem­ber 29 was Paddy Ken­wor­thy of Drumheller. Con­grat­u­la­tions to you both and thank you for sup­port­ing the Mun­son and Area Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion.

The win­ner for the Jan­uary 5 and first draw of the year was Chris Bo­bra of Drumheller. There are a few tick­ets left if you didn’t get yours be­fore the first draw and are still in­ter­ested please give me a call.

It’s back to school and back to the usual rou­tine.

The Mor­rin 4H Multi Club is sell­ing a set of 10 all oc­ca­sion note­cards. The pho­tos on the cards were all taken by 4H Mem­bers. They would make great Christ­mas gifts as well. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Me­lanie Nel­son at 403-7720000.

It is time to be mark­ing your cal­en­dar for com­ing events. On Jan­uary 25, High Five will be en­ter­tain­ing at the Mun­son Com­mu­nity Hall for their se­cond an­nual Beach Bash. Last year was a huge suc­cess and this year will be just as much fun. Break the win­ter dol­drums and put on your Hawaii finest and join us for mu­sic, games and snacks.

March 29 will be the an­nual Ladies Night with fash­ion show, home party ta­bles and great times with your friends.

Pre­cious Cargo will be back for us to dance away the night af­ter a de­li­cious steak sup­per on April 13.

If you have any ques­tions about the com­ing events be sure to check the Mun­son Com­mu­nity Face­book page or give one of the com­mit­tee mem­bers a call.

Our con­do­lences to the fam­ily and friends of Jimmy Pear­son of Delia who passed away re­cently. May he long be re­mem­bered for his love of science and the dis­ap­pear­ing grain el­e­va­tors across the prairies. He be­lieved in pre­serv­ing our farm­ing and prairie his­tory. Thank you for that Jim.

My thought for the day is: Be se­lec­tive with your bat­tles. Some­times peace is bet­ter than be­ing right.

Have a good week and be kind to those you meet. Edith (Peggy) Pa­tri­cia Brit­ton (nee Davis) passed away peace­fully in her sleep Jan­uary 6, 2019 at the age of 94. Born Oc­to­ber 27, 1924 in Van­cou­ver, BC to Jack LIewellan Davis and Molly Christina Inkster. Peggy, the old­est of four chil­dren was raised in St. Marks, Man­i­toba, and moved to Van­cou­ver to at­tend High School and sec­re­tar­ial col­lege, join­ing the Beta Sigma Phi Soror­ity. Upon com­plet­ing school in Van­cou­ver, Peggy re­turned to Man­i­toba to fur­ther her ed­u­ca­tion by en­rolling in Suc­cess Busi­ness Col­lege in Win­nipeg. Fol­low­ing her train­ing, Peggy worked at the Canada Rev­enue Agency and CP Rail in Win­nipeg, where she met her fu­ture hus­band: Robert Brit­ton. The two mar­ried and re­lo­cated to Al­berta to be­gin new ca­reers – Peggy worked at the Al­berta Trea­sury Branch. She leaves to mourn three daugh­ters: San­dra (Clay­more) Brit­ton, Rob­bie (Rod) Brit­ton-Audy, and Donna (Jim) Vi­gar. Peggy's pride and joy were her grand­chil­dren: Justin Vi­gar (Leth­bridge), Jor­dyn (Braden) Dews­bery (Drumheller), Megan Audy (Drumheller), Shae-Lynn Audy (Ot­tawa), and two great-grand­chil­dren Grayson and Wy­att Dews­bery (Drumheller). Ad­di­tion­ally, she leaves to mourn nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews. Peggy was pre­de­ceased by her fa­ther in 1929, sis­ters Doreen and Mae in 1975 and 2001 re­spec­tively, hus­band Robert in 1999, and brother John in 2010. Peggy will be most re­mem­bered for the sprawl­ing gar­dens she grew ev­ery year - filled with beau­ti­ful flow­ers and fresh veg­eta­bles, and the love she spread through­out her fam­ily. Funeral ser­vices for Peggy are Satur­day, Jan­uary 12, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. at St. Ma­gloire's Angli­can Church, Drumheller, Al­berta. The fam­ily is grate­ful for the gra­cious, and com­pas­sion­ate care of­fered by the staff of Con­tin­u­ing Care dur­ing our Mother's stay. Do­na­tions can be made to the Drumheller Health Foun­da­tion, Recre­ational Ther­apy. Court­ney-Win­ter's Funeral Homes are in care of the ar­range­ments.
