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!
