Sun­day be­gan with a prom­ise when large wet fluffy flakes of snow be­gan to de­scend on our dry ground – then abruptly quit. Even white mois­ture would be wel­come right now.

There are sev­eral events com­ing up in Craigmyle this com­ing week. You might want to mark your cal­en­dar so you don’t miss them!

Sun­day, May 1 is the next pan­cake breakfast in the church base­ment from 9:00 - 11:00 am. Come out and en­joy a great spring breakfast with your friends and neigh­bours.

Wed­nes­day, May 4 is the no-charge ever so pop­u­lar Mother’s Day Tea in the church base­ment be­gin­ning at 2:00 pm. This year’s theme is “Mother Goose”; be pre­pared for en­ter­tain­ment, a fine lunch, a favour for each guest to take home, and the op­por­tu­nity to win a door prize. All ladies from Craigmyle and hin­ter­land are in­vited to at­tend. Come out for an af­ter­noon of fun and laugh­ter!

Our beloved Queen El­iz­a­beth II cel­e­brated her 90th birth­day this past week. What a mile­stone that is! She is an ex­am­ple of grow­ing old with com­pe­tence and grace. That be­ing said, Craigmyle also has folk who are 90 plus; have with­stood the rav­ages of time and still have com­pe­tence and grace. The fol­low­ing come to mind: Mable Bur­rows, Joyce Brinkman, Betty Rew, Hughie MacDon­ald, Ludy Moe, Char­lie Thomp­son, and Melvin Metzger. My apolo­gies for any I may have over­looked. Our lo­cal 90 + folk have not re­ceived in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion, but this com­mu­nity rec­og­nizes and ap­pre­ci­ates their long term faith­ful­ness and com­mit­ment to our small piece of the Cana­dian prairie.

One in this no­table group, Char­lie Thomp­son, will cel­e­brate his 90 years on May 7 along with his fine and good sized fam­ily. One day of cel­e­bra­tion is never enough for Char­lie so the fol­low­ing day, May 8, he will be avail­able to re­ceive your good wishes at an open house at the Delia Drop In Cen­ter from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to come out and spend time with Char­lie and his fam­ily. Know­ing Char­lie, he will likely be up for an­other cel­e­bra­tion the next day!

The Craigmyle Historic So­ci­ety will be hold­ing its An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing on Mon­day, May 16 at 7:00 pm in the church base­ment. All are wel­come to at­tend.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Marylin Nor­lie on April 29 and Tim Len­festy on May 4. Happy An­niver­sary to Bar­ney and Sandy Ir­win on April 30. Have a great day!
