Sunday’s pancake breakfast saw a good turnout of folks who enjoyed the repast as well as the socialization. Guests were present from surrounding communities as far away as Rosedale. Several “outside of the Craigmyle community” guests hung around and helped the CHS with the cleanup, which was very much appreciated and proves that there is nothing paralleled to living in small rural communities! The next pancake breakfast will be held on Sunday, April 2.
Craigmyle’s Taylor Olmstead should be “popping” her buttons. She is a member of the Morrin High School curling team which also includes Shelby Primrose, Kayla Adams, and Amanda Holowath all of Rumsey. This past weekend the team curled in Lethbridge in the Alberta High School Provincial curling competition and, under the excellent coaching of Betty Primrose, the girls earned the top award, the Gold Medal. Congratulations, girls.
Congratulations, also, to Emily Alderdice who was the clear winner of the Delia Library Wii tournament. Emily competed against 50 other students who had signed up to try their hand in the tournament for the month of February.
The Drumheller District 4-H will be celebrating 4-H’s 100 years at an event in Rowley on June 10. Stay tuned for further details at a later date.
I am saddened to report the recent passing of Nick Marshall of Drumheller. Nick and his wife Audrey operated Nick’s Meat Market in Delia for 20 years. Nick was also a regular school bus driver out of Delia School for a number of years. One of Nick’s favourite things was to share stories about the children he transported, as each one held a most special place in his heart.
