Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE - 403-665-2492

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!
