Craigmyle Car­di­nal

The Craigmyle Pump­kin Fest is right around the cor­ner! This Satur­day, Septem­ber 7 is the day for young­sters to come to Craigmyle to take a hayride to the pump­kin patch; pick out their very own pump­kin and dec­o­rate it be­fore tak­ing it home all at no charge. There is a penny ar­cade; free ac­tiv­i­ties and lunch avail­able. The event be­gins at 11:00 a.m. with the last hayride of the day leav­ing at 2:00 p.m. All in all, a great fam­ily day in Craigmyle!

If there are any gar­den­ers out there with a sur­plus of pump­kins, please con­sider do­nat­ing them to this cause. Green pump­kins will be grate­fully ac­cepted. Call Bev at 665-2492 and of­fer your sur­plus pump­kins.

It is with great sad­ness that I ex­tend com­mu­nity con­do­lences to Jan­ice, Michelle and Wil­liam Hoover as well as Steven and Linda Hoover and Karen and Ge­off Wallins and their fam­i­lies on the re­cent and un­ex­pected pass­ing of Barrie Hoover. Barrie, who was our com­mit­ted Star­land County coun­cil­lor and County Reeve for many years, was ac­tive in many or­ga­ni­za­tions in both the Craigmyle and Delia com­mu­ni­ties. His in­volve­ment in the Craigmyle Cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tion was in­valu­able to the suc­cess of the event. As a faith­ful mem­ber of the Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety, he was val­ued for his com­mon sense in­put; his abil­ity to gather per­ti­nent in­for­ma­tion; and his de­light­ful sense of hu­mour. Barrie was a de­voted fam­ily man and a faith­ful com­mu­nity sup­porter. He will be sorely missed. The large at­ten­dance at Barrie’s me­mo­rial in Delia was a tes­ta­ment to this great man.

The Craigmyle Church was the cho­sen venue for a gath­er­ing of the fam­ily of Frank and Amy (Nixon) Bates fol­low­ing their in­ter­ment in the Craigmyle ceme­tery. A lun­cheon was served by the Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety for those present. Frank and Amy lived and farmed north of Craigmyle for a num­ber of years.
