Craigmyle Car­di­nal

This past week­end was a busy time for the mem­bers of the Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety. Satur­day saw the group feed­ing a large num­ber of hun­gry folk at a local auc­tion sale. Com­pli­ments about the break­fast bun; the tasty beef on a bun; home­made pies and tarts and fresh dough­nuts were free flow­ing. Charl­ton’s Auc­tion Ser­vice did an ex­cel­lent job of pro­mot­ing the CHS con­ces­sion dur­ing the sale. At the con­clu­sion of the sale, the Auc­tion Ser­vice used their skills to auc­tion off seven re­main­ing whole pies for the ben­e­fit of the CHS. Lo­cals were keen bid­ders and pies sold from $47 - $100, av­er­ag­ing out to $70 a pie!

When my son-in-law bid a pie up to $100, I wanted to jump up and yell, “Hold the auc­tion for an hour! I have a whole bunch of pies in the freezer!” It was all in good fun and the CHS sin­cerely ap­pre­ci­ates all who pa­tron­ized them on Satur­day.

The farm fam­ily spon­sor­ing the auc­tion sale was very im­pressed at the con­di­tion that the car garage, where the con­ces­sion was served from, was left in. Kodoos to this com­pe­tent group!

Tired CHS mem­bers dragged them­selves home late Satur­day af­ter­noon, only to rise early and serve the monthly pan­cake break­fast in the church base­ment on Sun­day morn­ing. Although the at­ten­dance was down, all present en­joyed a first rate break­fast. The draw, a huge cho­co­late goodie bas­ket was won by Linda Nor­lie. Linda, you are go­ing to be an even more pop­u­lar Grandma than usual for awhile!

It is with sad­ness that I re­port the re­cent death of Dar­rell Turner. Dar­rell, the youngest of three boys, was born and raised on the Turner fam­ily farm north-west of Craigmyle. He at­tended Craigmyle School un­til its clo­sure fin­ish­ing his ed­u­ca­tion in Delia and then be­com­ing in­volved in the seis­mic busi­ness. Dar­rel and his wife Cindy pur­chased land close to the orig­i­nal Turner farm where they made their home un­til mov­ing to Hanna at the time of Dar­rel’s fail­ing health. The Craigmyle com­mu­nity sends sin­cere condolences to Dar­rell’s wife, Cindy; his fa­ther, Jack; and broth­ers Dale and Bruce and their fam­i­lies. It is a tragedy when one so young leaves us.

Birth­day Greetings go out to Ken Mor­lock on May 12; Bradley Bram­field; Jim Nor­lie and Scott Stern all shar­ing May 14; Clay­ton Faech­ner and Sherry Lock on May 16; Brett Rees on May 17 and Lau­reen Strel­lioff on May 18. Have a great day!
