Annual beef supper in Endiang, dine and dance for Bruce Woelk is early in November

The good weather continues much to the delight of the farming community. In recent days cobwebs were flying everywhere, a sure sign of Indian Summer.

Even though we are writing this before Thanksgiving because of the early deadline, we hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend with their families. We have so much to be thankful for in Alberta when you consider what conditions are like in some other countries. Sometimes we overlook the positive to dwell on the negative.

Get well wishes go out to Bruce Woelk, who is undergoing treatment in the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. We wish Bruce a return to good health soon.

There have been a number of hunters visiting our area for some duck and goose hunting and some good shoots have been reported.

Sandy Muir from B.C. is visiting friends in the district and getting in on his annual goose hunts. As usual he came bringing boxes of B.C. fruit for his friends.

Fall is a busy time and there are lots of events coming up as you can see as follows:

The Endmoor Minor Hockey Association is holding a meeting Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the arena in Byemoor. Be sure to attend if you have children enrolled in hockey, however if you cannot attend please call Ryan Dettmer at 579-2529 or 741-6292.

The annual Byemoor fall roast beef supper will be held Oct. 23 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Byemoor Community Centre. The Byemoor ladies always put on a fantastic meal, so be sure not to miss it.

There will be a benefit cabaret and auction Oct. 29 at the Byemoor Hall for Roan Heck and his family. Roan is the young son of Neil and Jolene Heck who was involved in a tragic accident in June. The event starts at 8:30 p.m. and donations for the auction are most welcome. For more information contact Shannon 579-2283, Katie 854-2219 or Joan 579-2115.

Our community is close-knit and caring and its generosity will be evident as we support Roan and Bruce on their road to recovery.
