Byemoor slo-pitch tournament runs from Aug. 18-20 and is slated to be an action-packed weekend.

Parade starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19 with marshalling and judging of entries occurring between 10-11 a.m. at the arena. Parade theme is Canada 150, so hopefully lots of families, organizations, businesses and guests from out of town will get into the spirit and contribute an entry.

For further information contact parade marshal Les Stulberg at 403-579-2403.

The Kid’s Carnival is planned for Saturday, to start at 1 p.m. at the arena. There will be pancake breakfasts on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Saturday evening sees the dance set for 9 p.m. at the arena. Of course, ball games go all weekend with the finals wrapping up on Sunday afternoon.

Skip and Anita Mappin attended the Alberta 4-H 100th anniversary celebrations in Olds on Saturday, Aug. 5. Anita, a past Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame recipient, was among the invited guests.

Rylee Jones is once again riding in the STARS Trail Ride fundraiser, coming up at Rumsey. Any folks wishing to sponsor Rylee in this worthwhile cause may contact Rylee, or support her through pledge forms available at the Byemoor Hotel.

Several Endmoor country music fans took in the 25th annual Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose from Aug. 3-6.

Some of the headline artists included: Willie Nelson, the 84-year-old singer is still going strong; the award-winning group Little Big Town; Tanya Tucker, who entertained at the first Big Valley Jamboree; Keith Urban, the Australian icon who packed the concert bowl; one of the newer country sensations, Chris Young and country-hitmaker Jason Aldean.

Endmoor’s Krissy Jack and family operated their speciality coffee concession at the Big Valley Jamboree.

Shawn and Jodi Sunstrum, and children Jackson and Halley, are busy packing as they prepare to leave our community, after nearly 20 years. They are moving to the Drumheller Valley near Rosedale, where they have purchased an acreage.

The Sunstrums have sold their farm south of Endiang to Buck and Rhonda Hutton and family. The Huttons, already part of the Endmoor community, will just be shifting a little further east.

We bid farewell to the Sunstrum family and wish the Hutton family well in their new location, come September.

Ruby Hausher, Judy Reeves, Mickey Tucker and Lynda Wilkie enjoyed a bus excursion with Loran Charters out of Hanna to Cowboys Casino in Calgary on Wednesday, Aug. 2. They said nobody got rich but they had a lot of fun.

Dwight and Heather Tucker played in a ball tournament in Milk River on the weekend with the Gallagher team from Hanna.

Larry and Lorene Stulberg, along with their grandsons, Hayden and Easton Scheerschmidt of Stettler, enjoyed a week-long vacation to Burlington, Ontario. From there they took in the sights in Toronto, including a Blue Jays game, and also visited Niagara Falls.

We hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend doing activities of their choice. Although there was some rain, for the most part the weather was good.

Humour for the day: “Whoever said that nothing was impossible, obviously never tried slamming a revolving door.”
