The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - 403-665-2492

Well, I did it again! I for­got last week­end was a long week­end (Fam­ily Day week­end) and missed the dead­line for the pa­per! The Drumheller Mail even sent me a re­minder, but I missed that too!

Be­lated birth­day greet­ings go out to two very spe­cial com­mu­nity mem­bers who both cel­e­brated their birth­days on Fe­bru­ary 22. Ma­bel Bur­rows will be 91 years young and Diane Gre­goire will say good-bye to her 50s. Stay tuned to next week’s col­umn to find out if th­ese two ladies rec­og­nized their birth­days in any spe­cial way.

Two events are quickly com­ing up in our com­mu­nity, so mark your cal­en­dars for March 6 and 17. Sun­day, March 6 is the next pan­cake break­fast in the church base­ment. Thurs­day, March 17 is St. Pa­trick’s Day and the “Coffee Break” will be rec­og­niz­ing St. Pat by a spe­cial coffee time. All at­ten­dees wear­ing green will be el­i­gi­ble to put their name into a draw for a door prize. “The Coffee Break” is a drop in coffee time from 9:3011:00 am and folks from both in­side and out­side the com­mu­nity are in­vited to at­tend.

Con­do­lences go out to Brien Bram­field, Kelly and Billy and their fam­i­lies as well as their ex­tended fam­i­lies on the re­cent loss of Carolyn Bram­field. To quote Kelly, “Mom lived her life in a big way.” Carolyn was to­tally de­voted to her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren; her door was al­ways open to friends and one could usu­ally find the coffee pot on and ready. She will be missed.

The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety and the Craigmyle Church Women meet­ings held on Fe­bru­ary 10 put more com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties into mo­tion. A de­ci­sion was made to pur­chase an in­duc­tion hot­plate to ex­pand cook­ing po­ten­tial in the church base­ment. Bev Rees is to in­ves­ti­gate the pur­chase of Corelle coffee cups for the base­ment with Su­san Rees re­search­ing var­i­ous types of blinds for the Church Sanc­tu­ary.

The date for the an­nual Mother’s Day Tea was set for May 4; a ham sup­per date was ten­ta­tively set for April 10 and the group agreed to man­age the con­ces­sion for the 4-H District Beef Show and Sale held in Delia on June 6. The up­com­ing Hanna Women’s Aux­il­iary Rum­mage Sale was dis­cussed, with Bev Rees tak­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity of re­cruit­ing work­ers for the CHS’s por­tion of the re­spon­si­bil­ity.

It was de­cided to pro­mote the His­toric Church as a venue for in­ti­mate, af­ford­able wed­dings. Bev Bergman is to cre­ate a hand­out which will be dis­trib­uted at the Bridal Fair to be held on March 13 in Drumheller.

New mem­ber re­cruit­ment was also dis­cussed and it was de­cided that cur­rent mem­bers would en­cour­age peo­ple around them to at­tend a few meet­ings on a trial ba­sis just to see if they might be in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a part of the group. Any in­ter­ested per­sons read­ing this col­umn are al­ways wel­come to come to a meet­ing; try out the CHS and then make the de­ci­sion to be­come (or not) a reg­u­lar at­tendee. The next meet­ing will be held on Mon­day, March 14 at 7:00 pm in the church base­ment.

A num­ber of com­mu­nity mem­bers, who do not at­tend meet­ings, sup­port the work of the CHS whole­heart­edly. The CHS would like to ex­tend ap­pre­ci­a­tion to th­ese folk, be­cause with­out your will­ing­ness to pitch in by pro­vid­ing food; help­ing with cleanups; work­ing at events; and con­tribut­ing cash do­na­tions this or­ga­ni­za­tion could not sur­vive. Your con­tri­bu­tions are very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

The Valen­tine’s Tea themed “Think Spring” held in the church base­ment on Fe­bru­ary 13 was a re­sound­ing suc­cess. Well over 40 ladies gath­ered to hear and view an ex­cel­lent pre­sen­ta­tion given by Sandi Checkel from Checkel Green­houses in Cas­tor. The group had the op­por­tu­nity to ask Sandi ques­tions, as well as share gar­den­ing ex­pe­ri­ences among them­selves. Twelve lucky ladies took valu­able door prizes home, thanks to Checkel Green­houses, HB Cre­ations, Cat­tle­mun’s Ranch­ing Gift Shop and sev­eral in­di­vid­ual donors. Craigmyle’s HB Cre­ations pro­vided and served a de­light­ful Valen­tine themed lunch.

Birth­day greet­ings go out this week to Cole Alderdice and Shel­ley Mor­lock both shar­ing Fe­bru­ary 28; Kathy Rew on March 1 and Gor­don Bur­rows on March 2. Have a great day!
