Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - 403-665-2492

Last Satur­day looked like it could be the turn around for our grain pro­duc­ers. Balmy tem­per­a­tures, sun­shine and a dry­ing wind made one be­lieve that In­dian Sum­mer had ar­rived a month late – un­til – the next morn­ing when cloud, cold wind and the threat of show­ers again ground har­vest to a halt. Oh, the life of a farmer!

Sun­day’s pan­cake break­fast was a real suc­cess with a good turnout of peo­ple en­joy­ing the fine repast. The draw was won by Rick Fair. The next break­fast will be held on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 4.

How­ever, you won’t have to wait un­til De­cem­ber 4 for another great break­fast. The Delia Elks are hold­ing their Novem­ber break­fast this Sun­day, Novem­ber 13 from 9:00 am – noon in the Delia Com­mu­nity Hall.

Quickly com­ing up is the Craigmyle Tur­key Sup­per in the church base­ment on Sun­day, Novem­ber 20 from 4:00-6:30 pm. Vol­un­teers are wel­comed to help out in sev­eral ar­eas. A food prep work bee will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 19 in the church base­ment be­gin­ning at 10:00 am. Any­one wish­ing to help out might want to bring their favourite par­ing knife and/or peeler. It is al­ways more ef­fi­cient to use a “tool” you are fa­mil­iar with.

Vol­un­teers would also be wel­come to help with the fi­nal cleanup be­gin­ning around 6:30 on Novem­ber 20. By time for cleanup, the ear­lier work­ers find them­selves re­ally drag­ging their heels and would wel­come new “en­ergy”.

The no-charge Ladies Christ­mas party is sched­uled for Fri­day, De­cem­ber 2 be­gin­ning at 6:00 pm in the church base­ment. The evening will be­gin with a sup­per fol­lowed by in­ter­ac­tive en­ter­tain­ment, which sounds like it could, again, be a blast. The ad­mis­sion to this event is a wrapped gift for the gift ex­change. This event is open to all ladies from inside and out­side the com­mu­nity. Those in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing must call Betty (665-2247) or Bev (665-2492) by Novem­ber 25, so that an ad­e­quate amount of food can be pre­pared.

Con­do­lences go out this week to Ken and Lau­reen Strel­lioff on the re­cent pass­ing of Lau­reen’s mother, Mar­jorie Hayes at the Hanna Long Term Care Cen­ter. Mar­jorie, a long time res­i­dent of Bri­tish Columbia, has been liv­ing in this area for the past year to be closer to her daugh­ter. Los­ing a par­ent is never easy at any time.
