Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - 403-665-2492

Sun­day’s pan­cake break­fast saw a good turnout of folk who all en­joyed the fine repast. A spe­cial guest was wee Clara Clay­holt, who was so con­tent that she didn’t wake up long enough to en­joy the break­fast. How­ever, all those at­tend­ing cooed and oohed over the beau­ti­ful sleep­ing baby. Over­heard was, “Oh I just want to pick her up and squeeze her – she is so cute!” That pretty much summed up what all the moms and grand­mas (and even a few of the male per­sua­sion) were think­ing. The draw was won by lucky Barb Mar­shall. The next pan­cake break­fast will be held on Sun­day, March 5.

The next Craigmyle His­toric Meet­ing will be held on Fe­bru­ary 23. This meet­ing will be held at 1:00 pm in the afternoon, rather than the usual 7:00 pm time. At­tend­ing this meet­ing will be Ste­fan Cies­lik from Al­berta His­toric Re­sources Foun­da­tion who will eval­u­ate the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing church ex­te­rior and make sug­ges­tions for restora­tion of such. All in­ter­ested per­sons both from in­side and out­side the com­mu­nity are in­vited to at­tend. Fol­low­ing Ste­fan’s presentation, a reg­u­lar CHS meet­ing will en­sue.

Con­do­lences go out this week to Donna Ell and ex­tended fam­ily on the re­cent pass­ing of Donna’s hus­band, Con. In­ter­est­ingly, a few years ago I dis­cov­ered that Con and I shared a com­mon fam­ily line on the Fleck side. Any time we spent with Donna and Con was a real plea­sure.

I re­cently re­ceived word of the pass­ing of John Far­row in Ab­bots­ford, BC. The Far­row fam­ily is well con­nected to Craigmyle his­tory from the early years. A piece of the cur­rent ham­let is lo­cated on orig­i­nal Far­row prop­erty. As well, John’s wife Jean (Hunter) is also con­nected to the Craigmyle Hunters.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Bev Shep­pard on Fe­bru­ary 15. Have a great day!
