Fall colours delight in Endiang

Traditionally the full moon in September is called the Harvest Moon. However, when the full moon occurs on the autumnal equinox as it did last Thursday, it is called a Super Harvest Moon. This is rare occurrence and comes but once every 20 years. Farmers are in hopes that the moon change and equinox will bring forth an excellent session of harvest weather.

In recent days, the fall colours are apparent everywhere as the trees and bushes display vivid shades of yellow, orange and red.

Clara Abram was surprised by her family on the occasion of her 60th birthday with a trip to the Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino west of Calgary. The trip was arranged by her daughter Alona Quaschnick and they were accompanied by Clara’s sisters Judy Reeves and Marj McGuire.

The wee son of Dwayne and Shelly Schellenberg is doing well in the Red Deer hospital. Named Beau Dwayne and weighing 4 pounds 3 ounces, he should be able to come home in about three weeks.
