Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Drumheller Mail - - News - Bev Bergman 403-665-2492

The June 3 Craigmyle break­fast was well at­tended by folk who chose not to take in the Hand Hills Stam­pede that week­end. It was great to see sev­eral for­mer Craigmyle area res­i­dents in at­ten­dance: Cliff Pru­den from Castor and Fred Blair and wife Sharon from Red Deer. Cliff caught up with many he knew from the area, but Fred had been out of the area for so long that most of the faces were strangers to him. He did, how­ever, have a great visit with Ma­bel Bur­rows. This is the last pan­cake break­fast for the sum­mer. Breakfasts will re­sume in the fall, be­gin­ning on Oc­to­ber 6.

Most of the young peo­ple who have grown up in our area had the priv­i­lege of be­ing taught by Bon­nie Dok­torchik (Ms D.). Con­grat­u­la­tions to Bon­nie’s daugh­ter, Aca­cia, on her en­gage­ment to Dan De­San­tis from Mis­sis­sauga, On­tairo. The happy cou­ple will be wed in Red Deer in Au­gust and will be mak­ing their home in Sylvan Lake. Any­one wish­ing to give Aca­cia their best wishes can do so by stop­ping by the Delia Com­mu­nity Hall on June 22 at 11:00 a.m.

I am sad­dened to re­port the re­cent pass­ing of Joe Young of Sur­rey, B.C. Joe’s par­ents and their eight chil­dren farmed in the Far­row Lake district north of Craigmyle. As the fam­ily grew, it be­came nec­es­sary for them to move into the vil­lage of Craigmyle where the young­sters could re­ceive a high school ed­u­ca­tion. Joe was instrument­al in the plan­ning and ex­e­cu­tion of the 2003 Craigmyle re­union.

Our fam­ily has fi­nally re­ceived some pos­i­tive news where Art’s bro­ken leg is con­cerned. It has be­gun to show signs of heal­ing and he is al­lowed to place 10 % weight on it. He is be­ing trained to use a walker al­low­ing his arms to take 90% of the weight on that side. Fi­nally, there is vis­i­ble progress. There is no in­di­ca­tion of how long he will be in hos­pi­tal, so faith­ful vis­i­tors, keep those vis­its up. He thor­oughly en­joys and ap­pre­ci­ates the time you make for him.
