The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Bev Bergman 403-665-2492

Com­ing up right around the cor­ner is the Craigmyle Pan­cake Break­fast, sched­uled for this Sun­day, April 2 from 9:00 – 11:00 am. This is a great time to con­nect with lo­cals be­fore the spring work re­ally starts!

The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety meet­ing this past week saw a num­ber of busi­ness is­sues ad­dressed. A plan is be­ing formed to meet with David Chalmers of the Chalmers Her­itage Con­ser­va­tion Ltd to as­sess, eval­u­ate and rec­om­mend ac­tion for deal­ing with the per­sis­tent prob­lem of peel­ing paint on the church ex­te­rior.

As well, plans were fi­nal­ized for the con­ces­sion to be held for the Bergman Farm Auc­tion Sale on May 6.

The ap­pli­ca­tion for a Casino li­cense has been re­ceived and is wait­ing for ac­cep­tance. The CHS has agreed to man­age the con­ces­sion for the Hand Hills Stam­pede Beer Gar­den on Fri­day, June 2, ac­cept­ing a do­na­tion from the Hand Hills for their ef­forts.

The re­silient floor­ing in the church base­ment has been lifted, scraped clean and bleached thanks to the ef­forts of vol­un­teers Erik Bjorn and Su­san Rees. In­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues to de­ter­mine what will be the next step.

The date for the an­nual CHS meet­ing is May 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm. This meet­ing will be fol­lowed by a reg­u­lar CHS busi­ness meet­ing.

All in­ter­ested persons are en­cour­aged to come out to CHS meet­ings. Meet­ings be­gin at 7:00 pm and are com­pleted by 8:30. This vi­tal group needs lo­cal sup­port if they are to con­tinue their work in this com­mu­nity. If you want fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the ob­jec­tives or man­date of this group, con­tact Su­san at 665-2270; Linda at 665-2427 or Bev at 665-2492.

Brent Olm­stead has re­cently re­turned home from a most en­joy­able trip to “the land down un­der”. Brent, ac­com­pa­nied by daugh­ter Kelsey and brother-in-law Doug Lam­son, spent a month vis­it­ing with Brent’s daugh­ter, Danielle, and ex­plor­ing the won­ders of Aus­tralia. Brent stated that there were so many won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ences, but the coolest thing was likely the snor­kel­ing on the Great Bar­rier Reef where it drops off to meet the Con­ti­nen­tal Shelf. (OK Brent – did Debi know about this?)

An­other high­light was fly­ing to Mel­bourne to visit the 12 apos­tles, a col­lec­tion of lime­stone stacks off the shore close to Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia. Their prox­im­ity to one an­other has made the site a pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tion. Over the years, ero­sion has taken its toll and cur­rently only 8 of the Apos­tles are left.

Brent and his en­tourage also en­joyed the wildlife of Aus­tralia. Fox­bat, Wal­laby, Kan­ga­roo, Walk­ing Stick, as well as many other crea­tures that are for­eign to our part of the world. Aus­tralia has a claim like Texas: ev­ery­thing is big­ger. Brent con­firmed that in his ob­ser­va­tion of mos­qui­toes (big­ger?); bats and other crit­ters fa­mil­iar to us.

Part of Brent’s trip was spent close to the equa­tor where the group suf­fered tem­per­a­tures of 28 -38°C with 95% humidity!

Thanks for shar­ing your ad­ven­tures on this trip, Brent. I might have gone with you ex­cept for the bar­rier reef drop­ping off to the con­ti­nen­tal shelf; the near equa­tor con­di­tions; and just sim­ply keep­ing up! Happy to hear that you had a great time!

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Randi Eg­gins on April 2, Madi­son Alderdice on April 3 and Edith McDonough on April 5. Happy An­niver­sary to Wayne and Lor­raine DeGiano, who will be celebrating 25 years of wed­ded bliss on April 4. Have a great day!
