The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety held their sum­mer meet­ing last week and a num­ber of com­mu­nity plans were put in place.

Com­ing up quickly is the an­nual Pump­kin Fest, which has an added di­men­sion this year. The no-charge event is sched­uled for Satur­day, Septem­ber 10 from 11:00 am un­til 3:00 pm. The Pump­kin Fest is a month ear­lier this year for a very good rea­son. This year the ever pop­u­lar hay ride will take young­sters to the pump­kin patch to choose their own free pump­kin in the patch. It ap­pears as though there will be three colours of pump­kins to choose from: green, or­ange and white. Pump­kins and their new own­ers can then re­turn by hayride to the His­toric Church where the new owner of the pump­kin can pro­ceed to dec­o­rate it in what­ever man­ner he or she de­sires at no cost. Hayrides to the pump­kin patch will leave at 11:30 am; 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm.

Also hap­pen­ing this day is a num­ber of fun kid’s games to par­tic­i­pate in with a cost just to cover the price of the prizes. Ev­ery par­tic­i­pant is guar­an­teed to take home a lot of good­ies.

Lunch is also avail­able with a menu that will ap­peal to both kids and par­ents. This is de­signed to be a low (or no) cost fam­ily day, and all fam­i­lies are welcome to at­tend.

The His­toric So­ci­ety also set the date for their fall turkey sup­per. Sun­day, Novem­ber 20 is the day to come to Craigmyle to en­joy an­other fan­tas­tic sup­per.

The monthly pan­cake break­fast was also dis­cussed and it was de­cided that it would be­gin on Oc­to­ber 2.

Other busi­ness re­volved around dis­cus­sion about sev­eral projects to con­tinue to im­prove the fa­cil­ity. Thanks to Ken Rees for his work to re­pair the sid­ing on the west side of the build­ing fol­low­ing the June 30 “al­most” fire.

A Craigmyle Church Women’s meet­ing fol­lowed and Betty gra­ciously agreed to con­tinue to man­age the bi­weekly Cof­fee Break in the church base­ment. The Cof­fee Break will be­gin on Tues­day, Septem­ber 1 and be held ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ing from 9:30 – 11:00 am.

A final or­der for the Craigmyle Cen­ten­nial Photo Al­bum will be placed by the end of Septem­ber. This would make a great Christ­mas gift for that ‘hard to buy for’ in­di­vid­ual. You can place your or­der by con­tact­ing Bev at 403-6652492 be­fore Septem­ber 25. There will be no sub­se­quent or­ders placed. Also, a re­minder that a small num­ber of Craigmyle His­tory books are still avail­able. Con­tact peo­ple for pur­chas­ing a book are Bev (403-665-2492) and Gail (403665-2292)

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Wally Stern on Aug. 27; Keven Min­chau on Aug. 28 and Leah Meyer and Seth Meyer on Aug. 29. Happy An­niver­sary to Brent and Debi Olm­stead on Aug. 27.
