Several events are coming up quickly in Craigmyle. You might want to mark your calendar so you do not miss them. On Sunday, April 17, there will be a Ham Supper, with all the trimmings, including a dessert bar, in the church basement from 4:30-7:00.
Wednesday, May 4, is the annual Mother’s Day Tea to be held in the church basement beginning at 2:00 pm. This no-charge event is open to all who would like to attend. This year’s theme is “Mother Goose”, so you might want to brush up on your nursery rhymes before May 4! A fine “Mother Goose” luncheon will be served as well as a short program with lots of laughter and socialization.
For many, the Craigmyle Centennial celebration remains a warm memory and a digital scrapbook has been produced capturing a good many of those memories. The first printing of this book has arrived with all copies taken. A second printing is planned and you can order one of these beautiful full colour photo memory albums (cost of production or less) by contacting Bev at 665-2492. If you wish to view a copy of this album prior to purchasing, stop by the church basement Tuesday or Thursday mornings; come to the pancake breakfast planned for May 1; or view it at the Mother’s Day Tea on May 4. Pre-orders are necessary, as no extra books will be ordered.
Verdant Valley, our neighbouring community to the south-west has an event you just won’t want to miss! On Saturday, April 16 from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm Verdant Valley will be hosting a Horticultural Workshop. Alberta’s top horticultural authority, Jim Hole, will be doing a presentation on “Garden Myths”. Also featured will be Tim Schowalter, a local natural history authority. Preregistration, which includes lunch, is required by April 8. Contact Pat at 321-0210 or Toni at 321-0061. This event is sponsored by the Verdant Valley Ag Society and Starland County. Sounds to me like a great opportunity to get a jump-start on our early spring gardening.
On Thursday, April 21, Delia, our neighbour to the west, is hosting “The Queen’s High Tea” to commemorate the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. The tea will take place at the Delia Drop In Center from 2:00 till 4:00 pm. There will be a contest for the best hat with judging to take place at 3:00 pm. There is no charge for this event; however donations can be made to support the Delia Museum.
This past Sunday the monthly Craigmyle pancake breakfast was well supported with all in attendance having a good time. The draws for decorated cupcakes were won by Craigmyle’s Mary HeathersUpshaw and Hanna’s Murray Johnson. All tickets purchased went into the “big chocolate basket” draw to be made at the Mother’s Day tea. Even if you didn’t win on Sunday, your big win could be on May 4! The next pancake breakfast will be held on May 1.
