The 4-H Beef Club held its awards supper at the Endiang Hall on June 29. President Kallie Stewart was the emcee for the evening. The year in review was given by secretary Trey Nichols. Club leader Lorisa McAllister handled the presentation of awards to the members for a year of hard work completed on their projects.

On Wednesday, June 28, Byemoor School students enjoyed their year-end trip to wrap-up another school year. In the morning they went to the Jump 360 Trampoline Park in Red Deer and that afternoon took in a dog training demonstration at the RCMP Dog Training Centre at Innisfail. They travelled by bus, driven by Brandy Mappin.

A large crowd helped Stewart Farms, west of Byemoor, celebrate its 100th anniversary on Friday, June 30.

The farm, originally started by Earl Stewart in 1916, has been under continuous ownership of the Stewart family since. The occasion also marked Wilbur’s 90th birthday. Congratulations on this special milestone, Wilbur and best wishes for many more.

Endiang was a busy place on July 1 for the 14th annual Wade Buchwitz Memorial Gymkhana. There were lots of entries in all events.

High Point winners were: Tiny Mite — Walter Heiland, Pee Wee — Addison Rock, Junior — Gaven Brady and Senior — Kobi Brower.

Sportsmanship Award winners included: Tiny Mite — Walter Heiland, Pee Wee — Roan Heck, Junior — Owen Wilkie and Senior — Paige Jones.

Several Endiang and Byemoor folks attended the grand opening of Paintearth Gas Co-op’s new office and shop in Castor on June 26. John Schofer from Byemoor is a member of the board of directors. A few local folks were lucky winners of door prizes at the grand opening. They included Doug Johnson, Bill Smith, Linda Smith, Carol Stulberg and Rosemary Stulberg.

Dwight and Heather Tucker and their children Callie and Kai enjoyed a trip to Toronto where they visited with Darcy and Shannon Tucker and family. They took in three Blue Jays games and the Tucker family was seen on TV entering Roger’s Centre by friends and family back home.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Jerry Hansen who passed away in Hanna on June 25 at the age of 75 years. Jerry was raised on a farm south of Endiang, the only son of Hans and Martha (Schultz) Hansen. Our thoughts are with his sisters Jeanette, Carol and Mary and their families in their loss. Jerry’s funeral was held in Hanna on June 30 with interment at St. Peter’s Lutheran cemetery here.

We also extend sympathy to the family of Carol Nicholson. Carol passed away in Las Vegas on May 1 at the age of 62 years. She was the daughter of Bill Nicholson and granddaughter of Byemoor pioneers Percy and Mae Nicholson. A graveside service was held for Carol at the Byemoor cemetery on July 2.

We bid farewell to Dave and Lynne Nixon who are re-locating to an acreage near Okotoks, where they will be nearer to their family. We wish you all the best in your new location, Dave and Lynne.

We welcome to the community Kyle and Lacey (Stewart) Dyck and their young son Tyson who have purchased Dave and Lynne Nixon’s home place. We hope you enjoy our community, Kyle, Lacey and Tyson.

Congratulations to Eric and Maureen Smith of Silversmith Simmentals, Byemoor on winning the Alberta Simmental Association’s Purebred Ambassador Award for their hard work in the purebred industry.

Get well wishes are sent to Albert Mappin who underwent open-heart surgery in a Calgary hospital. We hope you are well soon, Albert.

Correction from last week’s column — it was Marjorie Sorensen and Mickey Hronek (not Pearn) who toured Alaska. Sorry for the error.
