Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - 403-665-2492

Right around the cor­ner is the Craigmyle Fe­bru­ary pan­cake break­fast. All folk from Craigmyle and hin­ter­land are wel­come to come out to the Craigmyle Church base­ment this Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 5 from 9:00-11:00 am to en­joy great food and so­cial­iza­tion.

Last week`s Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety meet­ing ad­dressed a num­ber of is­sues fac­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

A let­ter of res­ig­na­tion was re­ceived from trea­surer Bev Rees. Linda Nor­lie of­fered to ac­cept the po­si­tion of trea­surer and will be­gin train­ing un­der for­mer trea­surer Bev Rees ef­fec­tive Fe­bru­ary 1. The CHS ex­pressed grat­i­tude to Linda for as­sum­ing the po­si­tion while ex­press­ing thanks to Bev and re­gret that it is nec­es­sary for her to give up the po­si­tion she has so com­pe­tently held since 2008.

The CHS is seek­ing vol­un­teers for a num­ber of tasks. Will­ing vol­un­teers can take on re­spon­si­bil­i­ties even though they may not be able to at­tend reg­u­lar meet­ings. If any good reader feels they can take on one of the fol­low­ing du­ties, please call Su­san Rees (665-2270) or Bev Bergman (6652492) and vol­un­teer your tal­ents.

Pan­cake Break­fast vol­un­teers: two vol­un­teer peo­ple are needed to be part of the team that man­ages the pan­cake break­fast. Cur­rently it takes 4 vol­un­teers to man­age the break­fast. The CHS will soon be short one vol­un­teer – two more would pro­vide four vol­un­teers and a spare in case one worker is not avail­able.

Gift bas­ket cre­ator: Gift bas­kets have been a fundraiser for the CHS for the past few years. If some­one has that won­der­ful ap­ti­tude to turn “bar­gain” items into a de­light­ful gift bas­ket, the CHS would wel­come your flair.

Rum­mage Sale or­ga­nizer: The CHS has vol­un­teered at the Hanna Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary Women’s bi-an­nual rum­mage sale for a num­ber of years. This is some­thing the CHS does for the bet­ter­ment of the Hanna Hospi­tal and Long Term Care Cen­ter – there is no mon­e­tary gain for the CHS. Cur­rently, the CHS is look­ing for two peo­ple who would be will­ing to help with the or­ga­niz­ing of the ta­bles the CHS man­ages. This would in­volve phone calls; ar­rang­ing sched­ules and be­ing avail­able to con­trib­ute some work time at the rum­mage sale.

Other busi­ness dis­cussed at the CHS meet­ing was the up­com­ing 4-H con­ces­sion; the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of ap­ply­ing for fundrais­ing through work­ing at a casino; the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing ex­te­rior of the His­toric Church; re­place­ment of re­silient floor­ing in the church base­ment; pos­si­ble re­struc­ture of church base­ment steps. In­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing for these projects.

Com­mu­nity sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to Elaine Pan­ter on the sud­den pass­ing of her hus­band, Howard. Con­do­lences also go out to Jo Anne Faech­ner; Lloyd and Ch­erylle Faech­ner; Leona and Dean Kennedy and their ex­tended fam­i­lies. A beau­ti­ful ser­vice, with fam­ily and friends present, was held for Howard at the Craigmyle Church this past Satur­day. One amus­ing story that sur­faced was a re­flec­tion on the teacher short­age that was one re­sult of World War II. When Howard was at­tend­ing the coun­try school of River Bend, SK his older sis­ter, who was just out of high school, was as­signed the job of teacher due to the se­vere short­age of teach­ers. For Howard she be­came the “mean” teacher and she ad­mit­ted that she had likely been harder on Howard than the other stu­dents. I had the great priv­i­lege of meet­ing the “mean” teacher and she is a de­light­ful lady. De­spite the sad oc­ca­sion, it was won­der­ful to see the Faech­ner fam­ily “home” once again.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Jar­rid Stern on Fe­bru­ary 9; Al­lan Pfiefer on Fe­bru­ary 6; Alec Bram­field on Fe­bru­ary 7 and Martha Pfiefer on Fe­bru­ary 8. Happy An­niver­sary to Ken and Bev Rees on Fe­bru­ary 8. Have a great day!
