Obviously nobody was checking their email over the past week because they were all out enjoying this awesome weather! Therefore, this column is very short.
On June 20-22, Gary and Joy Mouly traveled to their niece’s, Renee Thomas, wedding to Kylar Baumung in Nordegg. On their way way home, they stopped in Red Deer to spend some time with their son Leslie and daughter-in-law Kimberly. From June 22-27th, their eldest son Terry and granddaughter Jane were out from Kimberley, BC for a visit and to work in the area and to help around the farm.
Skyann Brecht came out on July 4th to celebrate her 13th birthday with her grandparents, Terry and Wendy Carpentier, uncle Sean Carpentier and a whole mess of other relatives, only to later kidnap her best friend (me!) for a weekend of awesomeness! Hope you had a great birthday, Sky!
The old general store in Kirriemuir is really coming along. Shiny new red siding has appeared on the north and east sides of the building. The front has been exposed and made ready as well, so once again you can see the history of the building and the various parts of it made from different building materials. The locals certainly appreciate the hard work Natasha and Dallas have put into updating this historical building that is the hub of our little community.
The McCormick house is certainly buzzing – packing, cleaning, and rediscovering. This is most likely completely normal when moving households as the McCormick clan is moving to Hanna after Jennifer got a job transfer, and will now be teaching senior high English at J.C. Charyk School. Definitely a busy experience for us, that’s for sure.
Well that’s all that’s happening around Kirriemuir, and, seeing as this is my last column, I sure hope someone else picks up where I left off. If you still want to see what I am up too, check out www.ashlynmccormick.com. I promise something interesting will be happening this September. This Ashlyn McCormick, signing off for the last edition of the Kirriemuir & Area News (but I still may pop up from time-to-time in The Enterprise). It’s time for me to fly from this nest like our baby robins did a few weeks back!
