Many communities in our great country are making plans to participate in Canada 150 celebrations. Craigmyle is not an exception. Two ongoing projects in this community are intended to pay tribute to Our Canada, which is a country beyond compare to most. As Canadians, we all need to appreciate this wonderful, diverse and free land we are so fortunate to live in.
Craigmyle Entrance Sign:
The Craigmyle Beautification Committee has commissioned Sean Olmstead of Metal Workz to do a new sign for the entrance into Craigmyle. After many hours of design Sean submitted a proposal to the Craigmyle Beautification Committee; his design was way above their expectations and the new sign is in the “workz`.
The plan is, hopefully, to have an unveiling of the new sign on July 1, 2017, which will commemorate Canada`s official 150th birthday. However, this is dependent on the company doing the powder coating as there are no guarantees that it can be done in time.
Stay tuned to this column for the progress on this exciting project, as well as when the official dedication will take place. In the meantime, keep July 1, 2017 open as the potential date for this poignant event.
Craigmyle History Comes to Life:
The Craigmyle Historic Society, in partnership with the Hanna Historical Society and Stage Hanna, are collaborating to bring local history to life on stage. Historic vignettes, many from the Craigmyle area, are being crafted to be presented onstage by Stage Hanna to represent the various eras of history in our area.
More information will be forthcoming about this exciting project as it becomes available.
Other Community Happenings:
The Community Moving and Garage Sale is right around the corner and at least seven sites have been listed, three of which are moving sales. A sites map will be given out at the first site right at the entrance to Craigmyle. If there are other community members who would like their site listed on the map, you can still do that by calling Bev at 665-2492 and if no answer at 857-9080 by noon on Thursday, April 20.
The foods committee of the Craigmyle Historic Society met last week to finalize plans for the Bergman Auction Sale to be held on May 6 at the Bergman Farm. Even if you do not feel the need to buy any auction sale items, you might want to come by and enjoy the great food. All day breakfast buns and doughnuts are available beginning at 9:00 am followed shortly with excellent beef on a bun and homemade pies. Craigmyle cooks have an excellent reputation, so this might be a concession you want to take in!
The next Craigmyle pancake breakfast is coming up very soon; May 7 to be exact. Hope to see you all there!
Quickly following on the heels of the monthly breakfast is the annual Craigmyle Historic Society meeting to be held on Tuesday, May 9. A new treasurer will be officially installed as well as several directors. All are welcome to come out to this meeting, either to explore what the CHS has to offer, or to become part of this vivacious community organization.
Birthday greetings go out to Susie Lenfesty and Linda Norlie both sharing April 24; Robyn Morlock on April 25 and Ken Rees on April 27. Have a great day!
