The Morrin and District Agricultural Society, the overarching group of the Morrin History Book II Committee, was awarded $18,400 for covering publishing costs of the second edition. The society ordered 700 copies but received 680 due to mechanical printing problems. They started collecting stories and working on the book on Nov. 2, 2016. The entire process took 3 1/2 years. The committee consists of 10 community members with many more people helping procure information, write stories and proofread. Blooming Prairie II History Book is now available for sale.
