Craigmyle Car­di­nal

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

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!
