This year’s Craigmyle Pump­kin Fest is quickly ap­proach­ing – you might want to mark your cal­en­dar for Septem­ber 10. From 11:00 am un­til 2:00 pm fam­i­lies from all com­mu­ni­ties are in­vited to take part in this no-charge fun event. Young­sters can jump on a hayride at the Craigmyle Church, ride to the pump­kin patch and pick their very own pump­kin from the boun­ti­ful sup­ply grow­ing there. The patch is sport­ing pump­kins in green, orange and white colours. Af­ter se­lect­ing his or her pump­kin, the owner will then re­turn to the Craigmyle Church by hayride where they will have the op­por­tu­nity to dec­o­rate their pump­kin be­fore tak­ing it home. Hay rides will leave for the pump­kin patch at 11:30 am; 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm. Young­sters can con­tinue to dec­o­rate their pump­kins un­til 3:00 pm, at which time the event will “wrap up”.

Pump­kins may be a large part of the event, but there is much more. A kid (and par­ent) friendly lunch is avail­able as well as sev­eral kid games with a cost only to cover the ex­pense of the prizes. As well, par­ents might want to pa­tron­ize “The Old Store” and en­joy a very rea­son­ably priced ice-cream treat, as well as pe­ruse the col­lecta­bles and an­tiques in Doug’s store. If the weather is con­ducive, fam­i­lies might also want to en­joy the new play­ground lo­cated in the Centennial Park. All in all, this prom­ises to be a great fam­ily day in Craigmyle!

Don’t for­get that the ever pop­u­lar “Cof­fee Break” will re­sume ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ing from 9:30-11:00 am in the Church Base­ment be­gin­ning Septem­ber 1. This no-charge so­cial event is open to all in­ter­ested per­sons from in­side and out­side the Craigmyle Com­mu­nity. I ex­pect one hot topic of con­ver­sa­tion will be the up­com­ing Amer­i­can elec­tion. With a pop­u­la­tion of over 300 mil­lion-----?

Please note that the Craigmyle monthly pan­cake break­fast will re­sume on Oc­to­ber 2. There will NOT be a break­fast on Septem­ber 4, as this is the Labour Day long week­end.

I am pleased to an­nounce that our own Jus­tine John­son and Car­son Berry from Hanna have re­cently be­come en­gaged. The happy cou­ple have not set a def­i­nite date, but are con­sid­er­ing some­time next sum­mer. Con­grat­u­la­tions to both of you.

The charred west side of the church has taken on a new look. New cedar sid­ing was lo­cated, painted and in­stalled thanks to the ef­forts of Ken Rees and Scott Stern. It is only through the will­ing ef­forts of lo­cal folk such as Ken, Scott and many oth­ers that the com­mu­nity is able to main­tain this valu­able fa­cil­ity.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Howard Pan­ter on Septem­ber 2; Shy­loh Maksym­chuk on Septem­ber 5; Wayne DeGiano on Septem­ber 6; and Leanne Blades on Septem­ber 7. Happy An­niver­sary to Brian and Sherry Lock on Septem­ber 4. Have a great day!
