It has often been said that Craigmyle is the “banana belt”. However, it appears that our surrounding communities are also in the banana belt these past few days. Even the Hanna main street “snow mountains” seem to have disappeared!
Coming up quickly in Craigmyle is the next pancake breakfast scheduled for Sunday, April 2 from 9:00 – 11:00 am. Do come out and share your early spring experiences with friends and neighbours.
Stage Hanna, once again, provided a most amazing evening of entertainment with their presentation of “Send Me No Flowers”. If you missed this production, which was based on the story line of a Rock Hudson and Doris Day comedy, you missed delightful entertainment. The “amateur” entertainers are anything but amateur. The acting was superb with the sets, lighting and sound effects polishing off the whole production. Each time I see a Stage Hanna event I find myself wondering how these performers can be the same “every day” folk I meet and visit with on the streets of small town Hanna!
Craigmyle is thrilled to be involved with Stage Hanna in a remarkable and exciting project. The Craigmyle Historic Society, the Hanna Historical Society and Stage Hanna have partnered to bring to life the history of our area. This partnership is working together to bring to life stories of the history of Craigmyle, the Hand Hills, Hanna with some reference to the Delia and Endmoor communities. These communities have been intertwined from the early homestead years and continue to be to this day. A production is taking shape that is designed to feature stories from the early homestead years until the present time The goal is to bring history “to life” onstage. If there are any readers interested in researching and crafting factual local stories for any era from the turn of the century on, please contact Bev at 665-2492; there just might be a place for you. If this project comes to completion, it promises to be a most exciting production that will pay tribute to the history of our area and will be a valuable recognition of Canada’s 150 years.
As I look at my birthday and anniversary list, the only name that pops up for this coming week is our name, so Happy Anniversary to the “old boy” and me on March 28.
