Melanie (Starling) Koch and her niece Natalie from Zurich, Switzerland, along with Melanie’s mother Phyllis Starling, met with friends at the Byemoor Hotel for lunch on July 11.
Melanie was raised on the Starling Ranch in the Hackett district, between Byemoor and Botha. She was on her annual summer visit to Canada for about a month to visit family and friends.
Jack and Yvette Hayden enjoyed some holiday time in the North West Territories. They spent time at their cabin, which is on an island in Great Slave Lake.
We send get well wishes to Olwin Pearson who has had an extended stay in the Stettler hospital. Your Byemoor and Endiang friends are thinking of you, Olwin, and say hello. Hope you are well soon.
Get well wishes are also extended to a pair of former Byemoor residents, Len Schofer Sr. and Bennie Kobi who also had hospital stays. Hope you fellows are enjoying good health again soon.
Carol Stulberg hosted a farewell party at her home for Vel Gore – some may remember as Velma Boehlke – on Friday, July 14. Vel is soon to be moving to Westbank, B.C. Vel had moved to Stettler from B.C. about two years ago. She had many friends and family at Endiang, Stettler and Hanna. We wish Vel all the best in her new location.
The Byemoor volunteer fire department responded to a grass fire in a hayfield near Badger Hill, south of Endiang, on Friday afternoon. Kudos goes out to the volunteer firefighters for getting this under control. Dry conditions are creating a fire hazard, so everyone must be extra cautious during this dry stretch of weather.
Remember Ken and Eleanor Schultz welcome all to their 35th annual Campout weekend on July 21-23. Fireworks are on Saturday night and on Sunday are the pancake breakfast, Great Endiang Balloon Race and Frisbee golf tournament.
Thought for the day: “A bargain is something you don’t need at a price you can’t resist.”
