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

Wanted! Young peo­ple from ages 3 - 93! The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety would like to present this year’s Christ­mas can­dle­light ser­vice in the form of a Christ­mas pageant. Folks are needed to par­tic­i­pate in this project. Good read­ers, if you know of any­one from in­side or out­side the com­mu­nity who would like to con­trib­ute to this project, please call Bev at 403-665-2492. Par­tic­i­pants will likely have only one “re­hearsal” time prior to the ser­vice which will be de­ter­mined by the avail­abil­ity of the ma­jor­ity of par­tic­i­pants. The pageant is sched­uled for Sun­day, De­cem­ber 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Craigmyle Church.

The next ma­jor event hap­pen­ing in Craigmyle is the Novem­ber pan­cake break­fast sched­uled for Sun­day, Novem­ber 6 from 9:00-11:00 am in the church base­ment. Come out and en­joy a boun­ti­ful break­fast at a rea­son­able price while you catch up with your friends and neigh­bours.

Needle­work and hand­i­craft time will be re­sum­ing weekly on Tues­day morn­ings at 11:00 am – 12:30 pm in the church base­ment be­gin­ning on Novem­ber 8. All are in­vited to come by with their fa­vorite project, work on it dur­ing this time while shar­ing their tech­niques with other par­tic­i­pants. There is no fee for this event.

If you are look­ing for ways to help your com­mu­nity, the Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety can steer you in that di­rec­tion.

Thurs­day, Novem­ber 3 is the date planned for the church an­nex and sanc­tu­ary cleanup start­ing at 11:00 am. Come by, ad­mire the beau­ti­fully re­fin­ished an­nex floor and lend a hand for what­ever time you can spare.

Set up for the Novem­ber 20 turkey supper will take place on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 17 at 11:00 a.m. Again, vol­un­teers are en­cour­aged to help out.

Satur­day, Novem­ber 19 at 10:00 a.m. is the time set for the prepa­ra­tion of the food for the Novem­ber 20 turkey supper. All avail­able vol­un­teers are wel­comed to help peel pota­toes, car­rots, and turnips as well as help with other tasks.

The next His­toric So­ci­ety meet­ing is sched­uled for Tues­day, Novem­ber 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the church base­ment. All are wel­come to at­tend.

The His­toric So­ci­ety is pleased to be part­ner­ing with Stage Hanna and the Hanna Mu­seum to pro­duce a unique drama project in com­mem­o­ra­tion of Canada’s 150th an­niver­sary. Stay tuned for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this ex­cit­ing project which in­tends to bring Craigmyle his­tory alive on stage.

Another event com­ing up quickly is the Craigmyle Ladies Christ­mas Party sched­uled for Fri­day, De­cem­ber 2. This no charge event, spon­sored by the Craigmyle Church Women, is open to ladies from in­side and out­side our com­mu­nity. Guests are asked to bring a wrapped gift for the gift ex­change. The evening be­gins with a supper at 6:00 p.m. fol­lowed by a pro­gram. If last year’s party was any in­di­ca­tion of what is to come, laugh­ter and good hu­mour will def­i­nitely abound again. It is im­per­a­tive that any­one wish­ing to at­tend con­tact ei­ther Betty at 403-665-2247 or Bev at 403-665-2492 by Fri­day, Novem­ber 25 (prefer­ably be­fore). As food needs to be pre­pared, the Craigmyle Church Women need to know how many peo­ple will be at­tend­ing.

Con­grat­u­la­tions go out this week to Dave and Sue Eg­gins, first time grand­par­ents to an 8 lb 1 oz bouncing baby boy, Hunter John Hoberg. Hunter was born to proud par­ents Shae­lyn Eg­gins and Lonny Hoberg on Oc­to­ber 22 at the Provost Hospi­tal. Dave ex­pressed how im­pressed he was with the ex­cel­lent care mom and baby re­ceived, as well as the sen­si­tiv­ity ex­tended to the new Dad and the grand­par­ents.

I am sad­dened to re­port the re­cent and sud­den pass­ing of James Faech­ner of Red Deer. James and his sib­lings grew up on the fam­ily farm north of Craigmyle re­ceiv­ing their ed­u­ca­tion at the Craigmyle School and later at the Delia School. Sym­pa­thies go out to James’ wife Judy and their fam­ily; brother Lloyd (Cher­ryle) Faech­ner and sis­ters Elaine (Howard) Pan­ter and Leonna (Dean) Kennedy and their ex­tended fam­i­lies. Los­ing a life-long part­ner and a brother is never easy.

Happy Birth­day to Elaine Pan­ter on Novem­ber 4 and Happy An­niver­sary to Marc and Diane Gre­goire on Novem­ber 8.

Have a great day!
