Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN -

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!
