The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - 403-665-2492

This Satur­day, July 1, Cana­di­ans all across our land will be cel­e­brat­ing 150 years of in­de­pen­dence for our great coun­try. All in­ter­ested per­sons are in­vited to at­tend the Canada Day cel­e­bra­tion at the Craigmyle Civic Cen­ter be­gin­ning at 8:00 pm on July 1. Bring your own lawn chair and re­fresh­ments and en­joy hot dogs and marsh­mal­lows roasted over an open fire as well as a Canada 150 birth­day cake. The high­lights of the evening will be the dedication of the new Craigmyle sign and an amaz­ing dis­play of fire­works. This event is jointly spon­sored by the Craigmyle Civic Cen­ter, the Craigmyle Fire­men and the His­toric So­ci­ety.

Tra­di­tion­ally, The Cof­fee Break has dis­banded cof­fee time dur­ing the sum­mer months. This year, how­ever, The Cof­fee Break will con­tinue through­out July and Au­gust. All folk from Craigmyle and hin­ter­land are in­vited to come out to this drop-in “no-charge” event on Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ings from 9:30-11:00 am in the church base­ment.

Con­do­lences go out to Bruce and Su­san Rees and Brian Rees, their chil­dren and ex­tended fam­ily on the re­cent pass­ing of Vi Rees. Vi was a true na­tive of our com­mu­nity. Born and raised here, she grew up on a farm close to the ham­let. As an adult, she and hus­band Dave lived in Craigmyle where they raised their two boys. She took an ac­tive part in lo­cal vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tions and was an amaz­ing source of lo­cal his­tory. She will be missed.

On Sun­day, June 5, a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life event was held at the Hanna Se­nior’s Cir­cle to re­mem­ber Prince­ton District’s Grace Moe. A large num­ber of folk gath­ered to en­joy the fine repast, the fam­ily pho­tos and share so many mem­o­ries from long ago. It was a great op­por­tu­nity to catch up with many peo­ple who had once lived in this com­mu­nity.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Derek Rohrback on June 30; Bud Munns on July 2; and Nate Bram­field on July 4; Happy An­niver­sary to Ken and Shel­ley Mor­lock on July 4. Have a great day!
