Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - 403-665-2492

Craigmyle has been a rel­a­tively quiet com­mu­nity this past while, but there are a few hap­pen­ings you may want to know about.

Just a re­minder for any folk who would like to par­tic­i­pate in the April 22 Craigmyle Com­mu­nity Garage Sale: sale sites will be listed on a lo­ca­tion map to be given out at the first site en­ter­ing Craigmyle. If you want to have your site listed on the map you MUST con­tact Bev R. (6652237) or Bev B. (665-2492) to no­tify them. Out of ham­let folk can also par­tic­i­pate be­cause the fire hall will be avail­able for you to display your wares. How­ever, you also must no­tify the above con­tact peo­ple prior to the sale date.

Ken and Lau­reen Strel­lioff, ac­com­pa­nied by their Ir­ish Red Set­ter, Tilly, mo­tored to Red Deer re­cently to the All Breed Dog Show where Tilly put on her best show. Un­der a judge from Fin­land, Tilly won Best of Breed over five other Ir­ish Set­ters to gain two points to­ward her Cana­dian Cham­pi­onship. Way to go, Tilly; you have made your com­mu­nity proud!

I have re­cently re­ceived news of the pass­ing of Amy (Nixon) Bates. Amy and her hus­band, Frank, were a vi­able part of the Craigmyle com­mu­nity for prob­a­bly 40 or more years: pur­chas­ing their gro­ceries and wares at Innes Gen­eral Store; de­liv­er­ing grain to the Craigmyle el­e­va­tors; and do­ing busi­ness with the Craigmyle Credit Union. Upon leav­ing this com­mu­nity, Amy and Frank moved to Halkirk and later to Stet­tler. Frank cur­rently re­sides in Stet­tler. Con­do­lences go out to Linda (Nixon) and Larry Nor­lie on the pass­ing of Amy, Linda’s aunt.

It was our plea­sure to have Jim and Heather (Bates/Bergman) David­son at our home for a few days this week. They were here from Nakusp, BC to at­tend the funeral of Heather’s aunt, Amy Bates.

Erik and Joy Bjorn have re­turned from a two week trip to Washington State where they re­con­nected with many former friends, as well as giv­ing “Un­cle Sam” his just tax dues for the past year. Guess what? – next year it will be for “Cousin Justin.” It was a re­lief to see them safely home and know that their friends would not need to travel to Man­i­toba to smug­gle them through that field that leads to Emer­son!

The Easter sea­son is quickly upon us again – just proof of how fast an­other year has gone. Let us each take a mo­ment from the bus­tle of our lives and re­mem­ber why we cel­e­brate this beau­ti­ful time of promise. Wish­ing a Happy Easter to all faith­ful read­ers!

April 19 is a day many in our com­mu­nity are cel­e­brat­ing. If you see Mac Gor­don or Zach Rees, wish them a Happy Birth­day and if you run across Al and Sheila Rhor­back wish them a Happy An­niver­sary. Then, the next day, April 20, you might want to wish Everette and Sheri Alderdice a Happy An­niver­sary. Hope you all have a great day!
