Two events are quickly coming up in Craigmyle. The next Craigmyle Historic Society Meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 23 at 7:00 pm in the Craigmyle Church basement. All are invited to come out to this meeting to see if this organization might be a fit for you.
Sunday, February 5 is the next Craigmyle pancake breakfast. This is a great opportunity to have a generous breakfast while you connect up with your friends and neighbours.
I have recently received word of the passing of Margaret Kinniburgh at the age of 94 in Lethbridge. Margaret’s husband, Dave, was the pastor for both the Craigmyle and Delia United Churches for a number of years. Margaret, a devoted UCW member, was also a faithful choir member during the years we had the “Craigmyle Ladies Choir.” Services for Margaret are on January 18 in Airdrie.
