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!
