Craigmyle Car­di­nal

And the hot dry con­di­tions con­tinue!! Our farm is lo­cated be­side a prairie slough which has given us much plea­sure over the years. We have en­joyed: watch­ing ducks and geese nest, swans and loons stop on their mi­gra­tory path; muskrats make their homes; our chil­dren skat­ing on the pond and per­haps most of all the sight of our neigh­bour’s cows and calves loung­ing on the edges of the water. How­ever, to­day we are “en­joy­ing” the al­kali storms com­ing off the now dry slough. Our trees look like they have been frosted and, if the wind is from the right di­rec­tion, we have the “plea­sure” of look­ing through an al­kali snow­storm. This brings back dreaded mem­o­ries from the 1980’s.

Two Craigmyle or­ga­ni­za­tions have re­cently elected new ex­ec­u­tives. At the re­cent An­nual Civic Cen­ter As­so­ci­a­tion meet­ing Ed­win Burt re­placed Gail Olm­stead as Pres­i­dent; Sue Eg­gins ac­cepted the po­si­tion of Sec­re­tary for an­other term; and Brandy Burt re­placed Debi Olm­stead as Trea­surer. She­lagh Olm­stead as­sumed the po­si­tion of Di­rec­tor Chair with Debi Olm­stead, Brent Olm­stead, Sean Olm­stead and Gail Olm­stead tak­ing on Di­rec­tor Po­si­tions.

The Civic Cen­ter As­so­ci­a­tion has been work­ing dili­gently on an on­go­ing ba­sis to im­prove the former old school to make it a vi­able com­mu­nity re­source in our ham­let. They are pleased to an­nounce that they have com­pleted the re­place­ment of all main floor win­dows, as well as other sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments to the main floor. Ku­dos to the Civic Cen­ter As­so­ci­a­tion!

The Craigmyle Church Women have also had a change of ex­ec­u­tive re­cently. Bev Bergman and Ma­bel Bur­rows will re­main as Chair­per­son and Trea­surer re­spec­tively, with Joy Bjorn re­plac­ing Betty Olm­stead as Sec­re­tary.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Craigmyle’s Jus­tine John­son who will wed Hanna’s Car­son Berry on Septem­ber 2 of this year. Jus­tine’s fam­ily and friends will be host­ing a pre-bridal party for her on Sun­day, Au­gust 13 at 2:00 pm in the Delia Hall. All are in­vited to stop by to give Jus­tine your best wishes, en­joy a great lunch with re­fresh­ments, en­joy fel­low­ship with those present, and con­trib­ute in some small way to Jus­tine’s and Car­son’s new life to­gether. The best news about the plans this young cou­ple are mak­ing is that they in­tend to take up resi- dence in our com­mu­nity.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Colby and Ni­cole Gra­ham who were mar­ried on July 15 in Denise Bat­tle’s beau­ti­ful farm yard. Fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony all guests en­joyed a boun­teous re­cep­tion in the Delia hall. The young cou­ple will take up res­i­dence in Langdon, Al­berta.
