Matlock loses a wonderfully warm resident

It is with sadness that we say goodbye to Marjorie (Marj, Margie) Meisner, who passed away suddenly in her home on Monday, March 27, 2017. Marjorie will be missed by husband Ron, and everyone who knew her. She always had a smile for everyone she encountered. Marjorie (on the right) playing the ukulele. Marjorie is best known for her musical talents. She loved to sing, and played the guitar, the tin whistle, and the ukulele--probably others, as Marjorie's life was greatly enhanced by her musical connections.

Marjorie loved to gather with friends and was a member of the informal music group that meets at the Matlock Rec Club. Do give Ron Meisner a hug when you see him.

farewell to Donnie Alexander

The Matlock Rec Club lost a wonderful friend on Friday, September 18, 2015, when Donnie Alexander passed from this world. Donnie really loved dogs and is pictured here with Hero, who will miss him tremendously. Donnie was a great supporter of the MRC and all community events. He started the Walking Club several years ago, sat on the MRC Board of Directors for the past five years, and volunteered in many capacities including playing Santa Claus at our Breakfast with Santa and selling raffle tickets. Donnie Alexander (left) selling tickets at the MRC  Donnie asking Santa for a trip to Mexico at the MRC Breakfast with Santa  Donnie always had a great big smile, and was known throughout the community as having the best tan in town! We will all miss Donnie tremendously. Here are a few more photos that will undoubtedly bring a smile too your face. Donnie really loved his dog Rambo Donnie's final vacation was to Osoyoos, BC
