BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — An Endiang couple are Alberta’s newest millionaires. Don and Audrey Grover won $1.55 million on the STARS Lottery on the 50/50 draw. Congratulations to the Grovers; may you enjoy your windfall to the fullest.

The Grovers are on a lucky streak it seems; in 2014 they won a major prize in the Red Deer Hospital’s lottery taking home a new Dodge Dart car plus a cash prize of $50,000.

The Endmoor Gophers ball teams are looking for players. Pitch for children of six to eight years and t-ball for children of three to five years is being offered.

If you have children who may be interested in playing this year please text Bobbi Buchwitz at 403-741-8345 or Paige Jones at 403-740-4863 at the earliest as they hope to start soon.

A full-house enjoyed the Byemoor Bull-a-Rama on Friday evening. Thirty bull riders competed. Canadian contestants were from B.C., Alberta and Quebec while international competitors came from Australia, Brazil and Mexico.

When the dust settled it was a St. Albert cowboy, Kyle Primeau, who won the event. He was also presented with a championship jacket by Ryder, Bronc, Colter and Riggin Buchwitz.

David Pisko of Byemoor was the lucky winner of the 50/50 draw worth $528. The Boulet Boots donated by Tom’s Boot in Stettler was won by Sheila Buchwitz of Endiang. Various raffle prizes were also donated by the vendors of the mini-trade show.

The evening ended with dancing to the music of Daly Up and Dance provided by Lori Blake of Hanna.

A huge thank you goes out to the volunteers who organized, set up and worked at the Bull-a-Rama for making it a success once again.

Miles and Lynne Jones arrived home on April 5 after spending the winter in Yuma, Arizona. They enjoyed their stay and remarked the weather was a little cooler this year than usual.

The Endmoor seniors had a busy week. Monday was floor curling in Endiang, on Tuesday members of the Drop-In Centre attended the Louisiana Hayride show in Stettler, Drop-In members were in Delia on Wednesday for the Popovich’s show and then crib on Thursday in Byemoor.

Other members from the community also took in the Louisiana Hayride show in Stettler.

Endmoor Drop-In Centre held its regular crib meet on April 13 with Doug Harrold posting the top score and Rita Stiles placing second.

Julie Jones along with her daughter Dixie Zorn and grandson Holden Zorn spent Easter in Nova Scotia. They enjoyed spending this spring-time holiday with Julie’s granddaughter Charleen.

Jenelle Hassett and her children Briar and Ren spent the Easter week with Jenelle’s parents at Brisco, B.C.

We send birthday greetings to Ella (nee Sorensen) Kisser of Stettler who celebrated her 85th birthday on April 14. Congratulations on this special milestone, Ella and best wishes for many more.

Happy anniversary greetings go to Brad and Shellbea Paulsen who celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary on April 18.
