With­out a doubt, this has been a win­ter to re­mem­ber! Mild, a fair amount of snow – now the only prob­lem is the re­cent ice con­di­tion mak­ing walk­ing a treach­er­ous ad­ven­ture. The weath­er­man says that we should have thaw­ing tem­per­a­tures again this week, so hope­fully that will make a dif­fer­ence in the ice con­di­tion.

This Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 13, is def­i­nitely the day to come to Craigmyle. The mild weather has prompted con­ver­sa­tion about spring gar­den­ing plans. The Valen­tine’s Tea this Satur­day is ap­pro­pri­ately themed “Think Spring.” This is a no-charge event spon­sored jointly by the Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety and Checkel’s Green­house lo­cated at Cas­tor. Sandi Checkel will be in at­ten­dance to con­duct a vis­ual pre­sen­ta­tion of in­ter­est to all green thumbs. She will be ad­dress­ing is­sues such as gar­den­ing myths; fer­til­iz­ers; in­ter­est­ing va­ri­eties for our area as well as pro­vid­ing a ques­tion and an­swer pe­riod. The word I have heard is that there are at least eight fab­u­lous door prizes to be won by at­ten­dees. And, of course, re­fresh­ments will be served. This is an event ea­ger gar­den­ers won’t want to miss. See you in Craigmyle on Fe­bru­ary 13!

Last Sun­day’s pan­cake break­fast saw an ex­cel­lent turnout of folks who thor­oughly en­joyed the repast. Hun­gry break­fast seek­ers en­tered the Valen­tine themed church base­ment and en­joyed a fine break­fast. When the “Clay­holt Clan” ar­rived in full force the break­fast “chefs,” were stretched to pro­vide ready pro­vi­sions for the large group. The cooks ap­pre­ci­ated the good hu­mour and pa­tience this fam­ily dis­played as they waited for the next batch of freshly pre­pared food to hit the warmer. Brian, the pa­tri­arch of the Clay­holt Clan, cel­e­brated his 60th birth­day in grand style on Fe­bru­ary 5, with a large num­ber of friends and fam­ily in at­ten­dance. The His­toric So­ci­ety was more than thrilled that this fine fam­ily chose to con­tinue their cel­e­bra­tion by com­ing to our small berg for break­fast on Sun­day. The draw prize, a Thomas Kin­cade light­house and a col­lec­tor plate, was won by lucky Harold Men­nis from Hanna. The next Craigmyle break­fast will be held on Sun­day, March 6.

St. Pa­trick’s Day, March 17, is not re­ally that far away and Craigmyle is al­ready gear­ing up for that green day. The reg­u­lar Thurs­day “Coffee Break” will be rec­og­niz­ing St. Pat’s day with a spe­cial coffee time. Treats will be on hand and, if you are wear­ing green, you will be en­ti­tled to put your name into a door prize draw. Folks from both in­side and out­side of the com­mu­nity are in­vited to come out and en­joy this no-charge St. Pat’s event tak- ing place from 9:30-11:00 am on March 17 in the church base­ment.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Ni­c­hole Clay­holt on Fe­bru­ary 17. Happy An­niver­sary to Larry and Linda Nor­lie, also on Fe­bru­ary 17. Have a great day.
