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!
