A popular winter song begins with the words, “Baby it’s cold outside” and, yes, it is cold outside. The cat and I have been surviving the elements from the other side of the glass (she more than me). I had to finally dig out winter coats, mittens and gloves, scarves, toques, you get the picture. Hopefully temperatures will moderate during the upcoming holiday season when so many good folk are on the move.
Christmas is right around the corner and if you want to celebrate the real reason for Christmas do come out to the Craigmyle Christmas/Candlelight service scheduled for Sunday, December 18 at 7:00 pm. Folk from both inside and outside the community are welcome to attend and this might be one event well worth braving frigid temperatures for. The service is non-denominational and conducted entirely by local people. The service will be musically based with special music selections you won’t want to miss. Refreshments will be served in the church basement following the service; anyone wishing to bring finger food is welcome to, but that is not a requirement. Just come out and enjoy a Christmas service and share fellowship with friends and neighbours.
The ever popular “Coffee Break” will continue for December 20 and 22, but will take a Christmas break on December 27 and 29. Do come out when coffee time resumes in the New Year on January 3.
Remember that there is no pancake breakfast on January 1. That is time set aside to recover from the night before, if necessary, and spend the first day of 2017 with special people.
Birthday greetings go out to Betty Olmstead on December 16 and Brien Bramfield and Debi Olmstead both sharing Dec. 18. Have a great day!
