Craigmyle Car­di­nal

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

Farm work is be­gin­ning in our area. There is much buzz about when to “seed” as most pro­duc­ers have be­gun weed spray­ing their field. Although al­most an un­prece­dented early spring, there is the fear that “Old Man Win­ter” may de­cide to re­mind us that he is still around!

This past week­end saw a hub of ac­tiv­ity for our com­mu­ni­ties. The ham sup­per at the Craigmyle Church on Sun­day was an ex­cel­lent meal, although at­ten­dance was a bit dis­ap­point­ing. It was won­der­ful to see Melvin Met­zger feel­ing well enough to come out and en­joy sup­per and vis­it­ing. Melvin and Vi were given many well wishes, as the day of the sup­per was their 67th wed­ding an­niver­sary. Con­grat­u­la­tions Melvin and Vi.

Re­ports out of Delia are that the Brent Butt comedic pre­sen­ta­tion was a “rolling on the floor” suc­cess, with the Cana­dian co­me­dian liv­ing up to this rep­u­ta­tion. The stage Hanna pro­duc­tion, “What the Bell­hop Saw” def­i­nitely was an­other suc­cess this year. Ku­dos to the many vol­un­teers who work so hard to give the rest of us an evening with a won­der­ful din­ner and side-split­ting en­ter­tain­ment at such a rea­son­able price.

The re­cently pro­duced al­bum of a cross sec­tion of the Craigmyle Cen­ten­nial event was on dis­play at Sun­day’s ham sup­per. A sec­ond or­der for this marvelous pic­ture record will be placed some­time in the fu­ture. Ex­tra books will not be or­dered, but any­one wish­ing to or­der a copy can do so by call­ing Bev Bergman at 665-2492. Books are be­ing han­dled through the His­toric So­ci­ety and will be sold at cost price. Any­one wish­ing to view the book should stop by the church base­ment Tues­day or Thurs­day morn­ings dur­ing cof­fee time or at one of the up­com­ing events in the Craigmyle church.

The Craigmyle Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion Com­mit­tee is look­ing for vol­un­teers who would be avail­able to give a small amount of time this sum­mer in help­ing to main­tain the new Cen­ten­nial Park in Craigmyle. Vol­un­teers will be ap­pre­ci­ated for what­ever time they can give. The only cost to vol­un­teers will be the cost of their time. If you can spare a bit of time this grow­ing sea­son, call Su­san at 665-2270 or Gail at 665-2292 and vol­un­teer.

Have you got your tick­ets for the ham sup­per and comedic hyp­no­tist show in Delia on April 30? Tick­ets are still avail­able for this very rea­son­able priced evening by call­ing Delia School (364-3777) or Debi Olm­stead (854-6507).

Com­ing up quickly is the an­nual Craigmyle Mother’s Day Tea sched­uled for Wed­nes­day, May 4 be­gin­ning at 2:00 pm. This year’s theme is “Mother Goose” and prom­ises to be a lot of fun. Hint: you might want to re­fresh your mem­ory about the old nurs­ery rhymes be­fore at­tend­ing this no-charge event! How­ever, even if you have forgotten them all, you are still very wel­come to at­tend.

The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety will be hold­ing its An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing on Mon­day, May 16 be­gin­ning at 7:00 pm, fol­lowed by a reg­u­lar CHS meet­ing. All are wel­come to at­tend this meet­ing. The CHS is ac­tively seek­ing new mem­bers, so this would be an op­por­tu­nity for any in­ter­ested folk to “try out” this or­ga­ni­za­tion to see if it is a fit.

Mary Heathers-Up­shaw was thrilled to be part of the au­di­ence at the re­cent dance recital in Drumheller. It was her plea­sure to watch her grand­chil­dren, from Olds, par­tic­i­pate in the two-day event. The young­sters def­i­nitely im­pressed their grandma, as they earned a high-gold rat­ing for their ef­forts.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Susie Lenfesty and Linda Nor­lie shar­ing April 24; Robyn Mor­lock on April 25; Ken Rees on April 27 and Danielle Olm­stead on April 28. Have a great day!
