Scapa Strawberry Tea set for June 5

The Mother’s Day pancake breakfast held at the Endiang Hall on Sunday morning, May 14.

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The Mother’s Day pancake breakfast held at the Endiang Hall on Sunday morning, May 14, was a great success with more than 100 people coming out to enjoy the delicious breakfast.

Winners of the door prizes were Deanna Johnson, Endiang; Ruby Hausher, Hanna; Jordanna Bosma, Botha and Kate Woelk, Endiang.

The breakfast was sponsored by the Endiang Board of Trade and proceeds will go towards hamlet beautification.

Some mothers celebrated their special day at the Prairie Garden Tea while others enjoyed their day with family get-togethers and activities of choice. We hope all the mothers had a wonderful day.

Congratulations to Sam and Mandi Rietmann on the birth of their first child, a daughter Juliet Margaret Rietmann, born on May 5. Juliet weighed seven pounds and 15 ounces. Mandi is a teacher at the Byemoor School.

Ms. Megan Janzen is teaching at the Byemoor School during Mrs. Rietmann’s maternity leave. Ms. Janzen was born and raised in Calgary so rural living is a new experience for her. Welcome to the community, Ms. Janzen.

Byemoor 4-H Beef Club members will be participating in the 4-H show and sale in Stettler on May 22 and 23. The heifer show is on May 22 starting at 2 p.m. while the steer show goes on May 23 at 9 a.m. with the sale at 7 p.m. Be sure to come and support these young folks, especially this year on the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Alberta.

For those using the Endiang Riding and Roping Club’s outdoor arena the riding fees this year are as follows: drop in – $20 per person, individual season – $50 per person and family season rate – $150.

Cheques may be made payable to the Endiang Riding and Roping Club and given to Twila Buchwitz.

Mark your calendars for the annual Scapa Strawberry Tea on Monday, June 5 at 2 p.m. at the Scapa Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend. This long-running event has been enjoyed by many; it is nice to see the tradition continue.

Humour for the day — “America is a country where half the money is spent buying food, and the other half is spent trying to lose weight.”
