Learn to floor curl in Endiang

Learn a new sport for only a loonie.

Want to learn to floor curl? Endiang Floor Curling Club is inviting anyone interested to join in, even if you have never curled before. Floor curling goes every Monday afternoon at 1 p.m. at the Endiang Hall from September to April. Cost is only one dollar for the day and includes three games and coffee or tea.

For further information contact Doug Harrold at 250-775-1993, or Ken Schultz at 403-579-2344.

Kindergarten classes are now underway at the Byemoor School. We missed a name in last week’s column, so here is the whole class: Dustee Borgestrom, Herbie Gallagher, Katavin Grams, and Felix Johnson. We apologize for the omission.

Mark your calendars for the annual Byemoor Fall Supper on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 4-7 p.m. at the Byemoor Community Hall. As usual, the menu features delicious Alberta roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy with all the trimmings and desserts. You won’t want to miss it.

Byemoor School students will not be selling magazine subscriptions this year as a fundraiser. If you wish to renew your favourite magazines please use the magazine renewals. The Byemoor School Educational Society has chosen two other fundraisers. The school is once again selling the community calendar for only $15 to feature family birthdays and anniversaries. Advertisers are also needed. Contact Twila Buchwitz at 403-323-0397 for more information. In another school fundraiser, students will be selling Little Caesars Pizza kits. Orders must be in by Oct. 12. Contact any Byemoor School student or Twila Buchwitz to order.

Byemoor Hotel is hosting a BBQ steak supper at the hotel on Sept. 29 from 4 to 8 p.m. The hotel always puts on a good meal so be sure to come out and enjoy.

Several Endmoor rodeo fans took in the 31st annual Hanna Indoor Pro Rodeo in Hanna on Sept. 22-24. Local contestants participating included Jenn Bunney in Ladies Barrel Racing and the Buchwitz cousins — Sullivan, Ryder, Bronc, Colter, Cash and Kord Buchwitz in the Wild Pony Race events. Lyle and Shannon Knowles’ granddaughter Jorgie Campbell also competed in the Wild Pony Race.

Farmers welcomed the return of nice autumn weather, hopefully now they can wrap up their harvest and fall work.

Seen on a bumper sticker: “Before you can complain — have you volunteered yet?”
