There are a number of events coming up in Craigmyle, so you might want to mark your calendars for the following:
Sunday, November 4 is the next pancake breakfast in the Craigmyle Church basement from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. November 4 is also the first day of non-daylight savings time, so you can sleep in that extra hour and then come out for a leisurely breakfast.
Saturday, November 17 is the day when local volunteers are asked to come to the church basement to prep vegetables and pies for the Craigmyle turkey supper. Volunteers will begin work at 10:00 a.m. and any volunteers who can take part will be welcomed. If you have a favourite peeler or paring knife, you may want to bring the tool you are most comfortable using. Knives and peelers are available at the church.
Sunday, November 18 is the day you get to come out and enjoy the fruits of Saturday’s labour. The turkey supper is from 4:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in the church basement.
The hamlet of Craigmyle and rural lands to the north are located in Division 5 of Starland County. The Councillor for our area, John Rew, will be sponsoring a Division 5 general meeting on Thursday, December 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Craigmyle Civic Center. The meeting will begin with an RCMP officer conducting an informational session regarding the new Rural Crime Watch Ap which can be installed on any smart phone.
Following this session, participants are asked to bring to the table any county concerns (e.g. roads, approaches, speed violations, by-laws, etc) they may have. John will endeavor to answer all questions and concerns to the best of his ability. All residents of Division 5 are encouraged to come out; attendees from all Starland Districts are welcomed.
A light lunch will be provided. John would like folk to confirm their attendance by calling him at 403-820-0320 by November 29 so he can determine the amount of lunch to have on hand. Please note that any cost associated with this event will not be coming out of tax-payers’ pockets.
On October 28 we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious Hand Hills Turkey Supper. Proceeds from this supper will be generously donated to the Delia School Enhancement Society (DSES). It leaves a heartwarming feeling to see communities working to help neighbouring communities.
Craigmyle Community is also onboard to help support the DSES. Between the four community organizations (Princeton Community Club; Craigmyle Fireman’s Association; Craigmyle Civic Center and the Craigmyle Historic Society) $6200 has been pledged for the cause. As well, a number of area residents are making personal donations. The DSES has been working very hard to procure the needed funds and it sounds like their efforts have been well rewarded.
Birthday greetings go out to Linda Rew and Chace Meyer on November 13. Happy anniversary to Marc and Diane Gregoire on November 8 and to Ron and Norma Seeger on November 10.
Have a great day!
