Craig my le is proudly displaying a new sign located on the Civic Center grounds just as you enter our wee hamlet. The sign, designed by Gail Olmstead and constructed by Sean Olmstead of“Metal Workz” makes a wonderful welcome to our community. Finances for the sign came from surplus funds from the Craigmyle 2015 Centennial Celebration.
On Saturday, July 1 Craigmyle will celebrate Canada 150 on the Civic Center Grounds with a dedication of this spectacular addition to our community. All folk from inside and outside the community are invited to come out to this event beginning at 8:00 pm. There will be a Canada 150 birthday cake, a bonfire, hot dogs and marshmallows. Bring your own lawn chairs and refreshments and enjoy a great community evening. Weather permitting; the evening will culminate with fireworks. Perhaps the most impressive part of the evening will be the sign, which will be fully lighted for this evening and other evenings following. This e vent is sponsored by the Civic Center Association, the Fireman’s Association and the Historic Society.
