BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — We made it to 2017, after 2016 went by in a blink of an eye it seemed. It is the time once again for New Year’s resolutions — wishing you all good luck in keeping yours.

Get well wishes are sent to Lorne Wallace who is recuperating from back surgery performed at the Rockyview Hospital in Calgary on Dec. 29. We hope your recovery is speedy, Lorne.

Crib at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre on Thursday, Dec. 29 belonged to the ladies. Mary Wilkie posted the top score followed by Gladys McLeod. Crib continues in the New Year, with games every Thursday at 1 p.m. at the Drop-In Centre.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Grace (nee Kalenith) Moe of Hanna who passed away on Thursday, Dec. 22. She was 87. Grace was raised on a farm just south of Endiang, where Doug and Deanna Johnson live today. Grace married Ludy Moe and they spent most of their married life in the Craigmyle district before retiring to Hanna. For a time Grace and Ludy attended church in Endiang. A celebration of Grace’s life will be held in the spring.

Our thoughts are with Ludy, Grace’s husband of 63 years, the Moe and Kalenith families in their loss.

We have a correction from last week’s column. It wasn’t Paige Jones’ parents who were visiting the Jones family, but rather Paige’s mother Margie Eager and Paige’s grandfather Neil Cullens from Cape Breton. Sorry for the error.

The NHL Centennial Classic aired on television on New Year’s Day. It was an outdoor game played in Toronto between the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings to mark the start of the NHL celebration of 100 years. Endiang’s Darcy Tucker was one of the Toronto players — all past hockey stars.

Remember the Ladies Calving Clinic is on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at the Byemoor Hall.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed news for the column last year. It is greatly appreciated as it makes our job easier and enhances the column. We welcome any news of community interest this coming year.

Humour for the day — “May all your problems last as long as your New Year’s resolution.”
