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!
