Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Bev Bergman 403-665-2492

Spring seems to have sprung and every­where one goes there is talk of gar­den­ing, crop seed­ing and other re­lated spring ac­tiv­i­ties. Now, if Mother Na­ture re­mem­bers to turn the “tap” on fairly quickly, it will in­deed be a good start to spring!

Our wee ham­let is wel­com­ing spring, as well, and is hop­ing that folk will step up to the plate to help make the ham­let look as good as it did last sum­mer. The Craigmyle Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion Com­mit­tee is look­ing for one or more vol­un­teers to plant and care for a few pots of flow­ers in the new Cen­ten­nial Park. Vol­un­teers would be asked to con­trib­ute noth­ing but their time, as all sup­plies would be paid for. Wa­ter is also avail­able at the park. If you would be will­ing to plant, wa­ter, fer­til­ize and dead­head for the up­com­ing sea­son or any por­tion of it, please call Gail at 665-2492 or Su­san at 665-2270.

It has been said that it takes a whole vil­lage to raise a child; in this case a whole vil­lage could main­tain the beauty of a park that Craigmyle can be proud of. Please call one of the above if you can con­trib­ute to this project in any way, how­ever small if may be.

Last week’s Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety meet­ing was pro­duc­tive. The CHS is spon­sor­ing a Ham sup­per with all the trim­mings, in­clud­ing a dessert bar, on Sun­day, April 17 in the Craigmyle Church base­ment. An ex­cel­lent menu has been planned and as Craigmyle cooks have a rep­u­ta­tion of ex­cel­lence you won’t want to miss this spring meal!

Plans were made for the CHS to man­age the older chil­dren’s wear ta­ble at the Hanna Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary Rum­mage sale on the last week­end of April. If you would like to vol­un­teer to help in this ca­pac­ity, call Bev R. at 665-2237 to see if she can use your help.

It was de­cided that the CHS should con­sider a spe­cial project for our fa­cil­ity to be pur­chased from the funds that were dis­persed to the CHS from the Craigmyle Her­itage Foun­da­tion fol­low­ing the most suc­cess­ful Cen­ten­nial event last sum­mer. Sev­eral ex­cel­lent sug­ges­tions were put for­ward, but the CHS wel­comes even more.

Dis­cus­sion also re­volved around how to in­cor­po­rate more ef­fec­tive base­ment stor­age, while main­tain­ing a use­ful base­ment space. Again, sev­eral ideas were pre­sented to be con­sid­ered later, along with more re­search.

A date was set for the An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing, which will in­clude a reg­u­lar CHS meet­ing. The date is May 16, 2016.

Fol­low­ing the CHS meet­ing the Craigmyle Church Women fi­nal­ized plans for the an­nual Mother’s Day Tea to be held on Wed­nes­day, May 4 be­gin­ning at 2:00 pm. This year the theme of this no-charge event is “Mother Goose.” Lunch, favours, pro­gram, dec­o­ra­tions and door prizes were planned with ei­ther Mother Goose or Mother’s Day in mind. Ladies from in­side and out­side the com­mu­nity are in­vited to at­tend this fun filled free event.

Com­ing up quickly is the Ham sup­per and com­edy hyp­no­tist show in Delia on April 30. This event is spon­sored by Delia High School’s “Dream Team.” For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or tick­ets, call Delia School (364-2030) or Debi Olm­stead (854-6507).

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Mac Gor­don on April 18 and Zach­ery Rees on April 19. Happy An­niver­sary to Al and Sheila Rohrback on April 20 and Everett and Sheri Alderdice on April 20. Have a great day!
