Craigmyle Car­di­nal

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

It has of­ten been said that Craigmyle is the “banana belt”. How­ever, it ap­pears that our sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties are also in the banana belt these past few days. Even the Hanna main street “snow moun­tains” seem to have dis­ap­peared!

Com­ing up quickly in Craigmyle is the next pan­cake break­fast sched­uled for Sun­day, April 2 from 9:00 – 11:00 am. Do come out and share your early spring ex­pe­ri­ences with friends and neigh­bours.

Stage Hanna, once again, pro­vided a most amaz­ing evening of en­ter­tain­ment with their pre­sen­ta­tion of “Send Me No Flow­ers”. If you missed this pro­duc­tion, which was based on the story line of a Rock Hud­son and Doris Day com­edy, you missed de­light­ful en­ter­tain­ment. The “ama­teur” en­ter­tain­ers are any­thing but ama­teur. The act­ing was su­perb with the sets, light­ing and sound ef­fects pol­ish­ing off the whole pro­duc­tion. Each time I see a Stage Hanna event I find my­self won­der­ing how these per­form­ers can be the same “ev­ery day” folk I meet and visit with on the streets of small town Hanna!

Craigmyle is thrilled to be in­volved with Stage Hanna in a re­mark­able and ex­cit­ing project. The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety, the Hanna His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and Stage Hanna have part­nered to bring to life the his­tory of our area. This part­ner­ship is work­ing to­gether to bring to life sto­ries of the his­tory of Craigmyle, the Hand Hills, Hanna with some ref­er­ence to the Delia and End­moor com­mu­ni­ties. These com­mu­ni­ties have been in­ter­twined from the early homestead years and con­tinue to be to this day. A pro­duc­tion is tak­ing shape that is de­signed to fea­ture sto­ries from the early homestead years un­til the present time The goal is to bring his­tory “to life” on­stage. If there are any read­ers in­ter­ested in re­search­ing and craft­ing fac­tual lo­cal sto­ries for any era from the turn of the cen­tury on, please con­tact Bev at 665-2492; there just might be a place for you. If this project comes to com­ple­tion, it prom­ises to be a most ex­cit­ing pro­duc­tion that will pay trib­ute to the his­tory of our area and will be a valu­able recog­ni­tion of Canada’s 150 years.

As I look at my birth­day and an­niver­sary list, the only name that pops up for this com­ing week is our name, so Happy An­niver­sary to the “old boy” and me on March 28.
