Craigmyle Car­di­nal

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

The many re­cent show­ers have def­i­nitely cre­ated a lush and green Craigmyle coun­try side. Crops are look­ing good and cat­tle­men are work­ing fever­ously be­tween rains to sal­vage hay, al­ready stunted by the early spring drought. What is good for one is detri­men­tal for the other. Such is the game of farm­ing!

In last week’s col­umn, I re­ported about the “near miss” fire at the Craigmyle Church. Af­ter meet­ing with an elec­tri­cian this week, there is no doubt just how blessed the church was. The gen­tle­man who re­ported the arcs and sparks on the west side of the church in the early hour of July 1 likely en­sured the ex­is­tence of this com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity. Thank you for your dili­gence. Work will com­mence shortly to re­store this re­source to full use again. As an early Au­gust wed­ding is planned to be held in the church, the pres­sure is on. How­ever, the cou­ple wish­ing to use the church have stated that their wed­ding will go on; elec­tric­ity or the lack thereof has noth­ing to do with their com­mit­ment to each other or the fact that the Craigmyle Church has spe­cial mean­ing to them.

The Prince­ton Com­mu­nity Club will be hold­ing their an­nual meet­ing this Fri­day, July 15 be­gin­ning at 5:00 pm at Prince­ton Hall followed by a pot luck sup­per. All are in­vit- ed to at­tend. If you do not feel you would like to be part of the an­nual meet­ing, then still do come by for the pot luck sup­per, which is sched­uled to be­gin at 6:00 pm. Prince­ton Hall is a most amaz­ing fa­cil­ity; one could re­move the ta­bles and chairs, re­place them with vin­tage desks and feel that they had been trans­ported back to the 1950’s. Do come out and en­joy the “coun­try school” at­mos­phere that still ex­ists in this com­mu­nity.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Norma Jean Min­chau on July 15; Susan Rees on July 16; Tanya Smyth on July 19; and Leo John­son on July 21; Happy An­niver­sary to Ed and Lynn Brinkman on July 18 and to Lyle Howard and Linda Rew on July 20. Have a great day!
