Mother’s Day breakfast at Endiang Hall on Sunday

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — Floor curling in Endiang has wrapped up for another season. On Monday, May 1 members gathered at the Endiang Hall for their last regular afternoon of floor curling. Following the curling all went for a barbecue supper hosted by Ken and Eleanor Schultz at their farm.

The floor curling club in Endiang has had an active season, curling each Monday at the hall, as well as hosting two bonspiels, in addition to participating in several bonspiels in surrounding communities.

On Thursday, May 4 the Endiang club travelled to Botha with two teams. The teams comprised of Ernie Angel, Ken and Eleanor Schultz, Carol Stulberg, Doug Harrold, Mickey Tucker, Eva Nielsen and Joan Morrison played well, bringing home some top prizes to end the season on a high note.

Congratulations to former Endiang resident Ruby Hausher on her 90th birthday on Saturday, May 6. Ruby was the guest of honour at a luncheon at The Lilac Room hosted by her family. Besides her family, Ruby was also joined by Endiang friends Ken and Eleanor Schultz, Carol Stulberg and Mickey Tucker. Congratulations on reaching this special milestone, Ruby. We wish you many more happy years.

Byemoor School would like to invite anyone with a child ready to start Kindergarten in the fall to come in and fill out a registration form and take a tour of the school. Please bring your child’s birth certificate along with you. There will be a practice day mid to late June and students will need to be registered before then.

Happy 40th anniversary wishes are sent to Glen and Theresa Tucker who celebrated their special milestone on May 6. Congratulations Glen and Theresa and best wishes for many more happy anniversaries.

Kirk and Twila Buchwitz and their four boys travelled to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan last week for the Clunie-Cooper Memorial rodeo. Ryder Buchwitz won second in the mini bareback. Way to go, Ryder.

Endiang cemetery is in need of a caretaker. Duties include mowing and trimming grass, clipping hedge and other jobs as required. Applications must be received by Saturday, May 20 and may be directed to Deanna Johnson at 403-579-2331 or Terry Gallant at 403-579-2515.

We received this item of interest for those who know Todd and Julie Nelson. Their son Greg Nelson was drafted by Seattle in the Western Hockey League Bantam draft. Many will remember Todd when he worked at the Hunt Ranch at Endiang; and also at that time he coached volleyball at the Byemoor School and looked after the arena in Byemoor.

Don’t forget Mother’s Day pancake breakfast at the Endiang Hall on Sunday, May 14. Breakfast is served from 9 a.m. until noon and proceeds go towards beautification of the hamlet.

The Prairie Garden Tea at The Lilac Room and Cattlemunns Ranching Gift Shop goes all Mother’s Day weekend May 12 to 14. For reservations phone Rhonda at 403-854-1137 or Karyn at 403-807-8730.

The past few weeks, farmers and ranchers have been busy with branding bees and getting their cattle moved out to pasture. After being delayed by moisture, farmers started crop seeding operations last week. Here’s hoping for a good year for the farmers.

Humour for the day “I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.”
