And the rain came down! Fri­day night and Satur­day saw ap­prox­i­mately two inches of rain in our com­mu­nity. De­spite that there are few pud­dles around, at­test­ing to just how thirsty Mother Earth was. The rains we have had have been wel­come; for­tu­nately we have not had the flood­ing con­di­tions other com­mu­ni­ties have ex­pe­ri­enced.

This sum­mer there have been sev­eral mile­stone birthdays recognized in our com­mu­nity. Yes, we have an­other one. Long-time former Craigmyle res­i­dent, Melvin Met­zger will soon be cel­e­brat­ing his 90th birth­day. All per­sons will have the op­por­tu­nity to give Melvin their best wishes at an open house, hosted by his fam­ily, at the Hanna Se­nior Cir­cle from 2:00-4:00 pm. Melvin is look­ing for­ward to con­nect­ing with his friends and fam­ily and says he is look­ing for­ward to his 100th cel­e­bra­tion!

This cel­e­bra­tion rec­og­nizes other Met­zger mile­stones as well. Richard and Char­lotte Pre­ston will be mar­ried 45 years and Mil­ton and Terry Met­zger will be mar­ried 35 years. Do come by and give the Met­zger fam­ily your best wishes as they mark th­ese mile­stones.

The Prince­ton an­nual meet­ing and pot luck sup­per held this past Fri­day saw a dozen peo­ple in at­ten­dance. The meet­ing was called to or­der by Chair­per­son John Cran­ton. In the pres­i­dent’s re­port, John re­counted the suc­cess of Prince­ton’s con­tri­bu­tion to the Craigmyle Cen­ten­nial in the sum­mer of 2015. The open house at Prince­ton Hall, in­clud­ing a fine pic­ture dis­play, was well at­tended. John thanked all those who had worked on that dis­play.

Busi­ness in­cluded the wa­ter leak in the kitchen which ini­tial re­pairs were un­suc­cess­ful in stop­ping; the re­pair of the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing swing set and re­pair of the up­per win­dows. A mo­tion was made to keep the same ex­ec­u­tive and di­rec­tors as last year.

Fol­low­ing the meet­ing a fine pot luck sup­per was en­joyed by the at­ten­dees, as well as an im­pres­sive thun­der and light­ning dis­play with a heavy down­pour.

The his­tory col­lec­tion com­mit­tee of the Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety met last week to dis­cuss poli­cies for the col­lec­tion and record­ing of Craigmyle and com­mu­nity his­tory and ar­ti­facts. Stay tuned to this col­umn to see how you might be able to con­trib­ute to this valu­able col­lec­tion.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Chad Stern on July 24 and Am­ber Mar­shall on July 25. Happy An­niver­sary to Brad and Kerri Kent­ner on July 22 and to Wally and Heather Stern on July 26. Have a great day!
