Byemoor/Endiang News

Local farmers and their families are spending long hours in the grain fields with their harvesting operations lately. As a result the news is light this week from Byemoor and Endiang areas, with few community events planned, as folks are focused on bringing in the harvest. We wish farmers everywhere a safe and bountiful harvest.

Get well wishes are sent to Verla Buchwitz who has had a stay in the Hanna hospital. We hope you are feeling better, Verla.

Some local folks took in the Bull-a-rama on Saturday, Aug. 26 in our neighbouring community of Halkirk. They enjoyed the bull riding and the fireworks display that ended the evening.

We send birthday wishes to Donnie Johnson, 71 on Aug. 30; to Elsie Walker, 75 on Aug. 31 and to Mike Keith, 78 on Aug. 31. We hope you all enjoy your day.

Take note that Cattlemunns Ranching Gift Shop on highway 855 south of Endiang will be taking a break at the end of August and will be closed until November. The Lilac Room will also reopen in November as both prepare for the busy Christmas season. Rhonda Munns will open the gift shop by appointment, please call 403-854-4745.

The community bids farewell to Ian Westwood. Ian has lived several years in the hamlet of Byemoor. Good luck in your new location, Ian.

Summer is going by so quickly, be sure to enjoy every minute of it — we all know what is right around the corner. Also, we hope everyone has an enjoyable long weekend coming up, the last of the summer. Children will be back to school soon, with school doors opening at the Byemoor School on Tuesday, Sept. 5.
