And the dry weather just goes on and on. Despite that, when I planted my garden this past weekend, I actually turned up a small amount of damp earth. In our part of the world Mother Nature definitely does the best she can to look after us!
The Hand Hills Stampede is coming up quickly and it is going to be an event not to be missed! This is the 100th consecutive year of the Hand Hills stampede – what a milestone! To find more details on this landmark event taking place on June 3– 5, visit http:// handhills.ab.ca/.
The Craigmyle and Hand Hills communities have been intertwined since the homesteading days and it is wonderful to see these two communities still working together when needed. The Hand Hills community was a key part of the Craigmyle Centennial event and now Craigmyle is paying back.
Volunteers from our community have stepped up to the plate to help out by running the Hand Hills concession for the Friday night Beer Garden. Other volunteers are working feverously on a float to enter into the Hand Hills parade. Of course, the Civic Center members are also organizing their people to provide their regular awesome breakfast for the Hand Hills event.
Coming up quickly in our community is the next pancake breakfast to be held on Sunday, June 5 from 9:0011:00 am. This will be the last pancake breakfast to be held until fall. Come out and share your spring experiences with your friends.
The Drumheller 4-H Beef Show and Sale will be held in the Delia Arena on Monday, June 6. The Craigmyle Historic Society will be serving up their great homemade hamburgers and pies, as well as other menu items. I do have to say that I am a hamburger lover and although I have eaten burgers at many events they have all fallen short of the ones that the CHS serves up. Come out to support the 4-H youngsters’ show and sale and enjoy a really great burger.
Birthday greetings go out to Melissa Marshall on May 20; and to Joyce Brinkman on May 22. Happy Anniversary to Ben and Tanya Smyth on May 20 and to Bruce and Susan Rees on May 23. Have a great day!
