There are a number of events coming up in Craigmyle. You might want to mark your calendars for the following:
December 2 is the next Craigmyle pancake breakfast from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. in the Craigmyle church basement. All are invited to come out and enjoy a fine breakfast with lots of socialization.
December 6 is the evening when John Rew, our District 5 county representative, is holding a county informational meeting at the Craigmyle Civic Center at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will encompass many county issues, including roads; approaches; taxes; development permits; Craigmyle beautification; the proposed new county facility (public works/ administration building); and community concerns. The RCMP will also be present to rollout the new Rural Crime Watch Ap. This is the time for all local residents to come out and learn what is happening in our division, as well as express your concerns.
Lunch and beverages will follow the meeting. In order to provide lunch for all attendees, John asks that county residents contact him at 403-8200320 by November 29 to confirm their attendance. None of the expenses incurred by this event will come out of taxpayers’ pockets.
December 7 is the evening scheduled for the Craigmyle Church Women’s annual Christmas party beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the church basement. This popular no-charge community event is open to all ladies from inside and outside the Craigmyle community. The event begins with a supper at 6:00 p.m. followed by an interactive program and a gift exchange. Guests are asked to bring their appetites, a sense of humour and a gift of value no more than $10.00. Those wishing to attend need to call Janice (364-2040) or Bev (665-2492) by December 3 to confirm your attendance so that adequate food will be prepared.
December 23 at 7:00 p.m. is the evening of the Candlelight/Christmas Eve service held at the Craigmyle Historic Church. The service will be followed by socialization in the church basement. All are welcome to come out.
Congratulations and best wishes go out to our own Mickey Johnson and Mitch Herd of Rumsey on their recent engagement. The happy couple will be announcing their wedding date at a later time.
Condolences go out to Leah and Jim Hunter; Grant and Stacy Hunter and Mark on the recent passing of Leah’s Dad, Gary Irwin, in Vernon B.C. Before moving to BC, Gary and Marilyn were long time resident farmers in this community where they raised their three children, Leah, Brett and Maria. Gary and Marilyn could be counted on when help was needed for community activities. Sympathy is also extended to Marilyn, Brett and Maria and her family.
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 neighboring 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 Shirley Chostner on December 7 and Brian Blades on December 8.
Have a great day!
