“A Very Prairie Christmas” on now at Endiang

National 4-H Month marked in Byemoor

The “A Very Prairie Christmas” event has begun at Cattlemunns Ranching gift shop south of Endiang and will run until Christmas. Rhonda Munns’ shop is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Be sure to check out this unique shopping experience with its Christmas and country décor, gifts items, Muck boots and much more. The shop was once a one-room country schoolhouse.

The Lilac Room adjacent to the gift shop, operated by Karyn Ironside, will be open to offer shoppers desserts and beverages from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Byemoor 4-H Beef Club is celebrating National 4-H Month, which is November, by hosting a community card party at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre. The event goes on Nov. 19 at 4 p.m. and everyone who enjoys playing cards is welcome to attend.

Two teams from the Endiang floor-curling club participated in the Botha bonspiel on Nov. 9. The team of Doug Harrold, Ken Schultz, Dave Sisley and Eva Nielsen brought home a second place win. Joan Morrison, Doreen Nixon, Charlie Thompson and Eleanor Schultz’s team brought home fun memories, as a good time was had by all.

Dale and Dee Green and Gary and Dolores Pearson have returned home from a memorable vacation to Branson, Missouri and Memphis, Tennessee.

Branson offered many entertaining shows. In the Memphis area they toured Graceland, many museums and plantations, Beale Street, the largest Bass Pro Shop in the world and took a paddlewheel boat ride on the Mississippi River, to mention a few.

Several local folks enjoyed one of the performances of “Annie” in Hanna presented by Stage Hanna. Of local interest, among the cast were Lyle and Shannon Knowles’ daughter and son-in-law and granddaughters Katie and Derrick Campbell and Jorgie, Scarlett and Lyla.

Also performing in “Annie” were Gary and Dolores Pearson’s daughter and granddaughter Trina and Quinn Peters. By all reports the cast delivered a wonderful performance.

On Nov. 9 a farm safety presentation was given to the Byemoor School students by instructor Lori Hronek. Students learned important safety practices. They also wore concussion goggles and then had to do tasks which demonstrated the impact concussions can have on a person.

Ryder and Bronc Buchwitz competed in the Rank Pony riding competition at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton last week. It would have been an experience the youngsters will never forget, to compete in a venue that large in front of so many people. Well done, boys.

Byemoor School held a Remembrance program on Friday led by Principal Mike Flieger. Cadet Flight Sergeant Bill Hawkins represented the armed forces in uniform. Bill was a former student of the Byemoor School. Karyn Ironside provided the music for the program, playing O Canada and God Save the Queen. Poetry was read by the students. A video clip was shown of Vimy Ridge and Dieppe. The Last Post was heard followed by a moment of silence and then Reveille.

Keep in mind Santa Claus Day in Byemoor is on Dec. 2 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. To book a table to market your wares call Rhonda Maginn at 403-579-2228.

Endmoor Drop-In Society is once again hosting its Senior Christmas Dinner with entertainment on Dec. 7. Entertainment will be provided by the Byemoor School Grade 1-3 class and country comedian Ol’ Ugly. Organizers plan to contact seniors, age 65 and older, who live or have lived in the Endiang-Byemoor area, to invite them to the free dinner. If any senior should get missed or if you know of seniors who should be on the list, please call Deanna Johnson at 403-579-2331 or Eleanor Schultz at 403-579-2344 prior to Nov. 28.

Many Endmoor rodeo fans attended the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton. This year was rather nostalgic as it is the last time, after a run of 44 years that the rodeo finals will be held at Northlands Coliseum.

Humour for the day — “I hate how my mirror and my camera have completely different ideas of what I look like.”
