BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The annual general meeting of the Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society was held on Tuesday, Jan. 3 at the arena in Byemoor. Much of the executive remains the same — President: Lenard Schofer, Vice-President: Nolan Groundwater and Secretary: Bobbi Buchwitz.

Anita Mappin completed her two-year term as treasurer. Thanks for all your hard work Anita in that position. No one at the meeting stepped forward to fill the position, so it is hoped someone from the community will take the job over.

Endmoor Drop-In Centre held its weekly crib meet on Thursday, Jan. 12. Vi McCarty posted the top score of the afternoon, while Eleanor Schultz followed with second.

Local curling fans Betty Campbell, Doreen Nixon, Eugene Nixon and Becky Nixon travelled to Las Vegas to take in the Continental Cup of curling. Sounds like a fun time.

Dale and Dee Green along with Gary and Dolores Pearson enjoyed a week-long holiday to Palm Springs, California. They left behind some cold winter weather and enjoyed touring several points of interest in the area.

Larry and Lorene Stulberg enjoyed a week-long break from winter with a Caribbean vacation to a resort in the Dominican Republic.

Happy 70th birthday wishes go out to a former resident of Byemoor, Wayne Nixon. Several family and friends joined Wayne on Sunday afternoon at Wayne and Loree’s farm south of Donalda to help him celebrate his special milestone. Best wishes for many more, Wayne.

A 90th birthday celebration is planned for Buster Walker on Saturday, Jan. 28 at the Byemoor Hall. The open house goes from 1-3 p.m. and everyone is welcome to attend this come and go event.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Larry Hoath who passed away on Monday, Jan. 9 in Calgary at the age of 72 years. Larry has been a resident of Byemoor for the past several years. Larry and his late wife Linda lived in the former Mary Kobi residence. Our thoughts are with his family in their loss. At Larry’s request, no funeral service will be held.

Cattlemunns Ranching Gift Shop and The Lilac Room, Endiang, are hosting “Flower Talk and Dessert Buffet” on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 1 p.m. Tips on growing magnificent flowers will be given by Checkel Greenhouses of Castor. Cost is $10 for the dessert and lecture. Please register by Feb. 1 by calling Rhonda at 403-854-1137 or Karyn at 403-808-8730.

Humour for the day — “Some people are convinced that every time a sock goes missing in the dryer, it comes back as an extra Tupperware lid.”
