Ambulance visit at Byemoor School a hit

Presenter Frank Gorjans a former student

Frank Gorgans, an EMT from the Stettler Ambulance Authority, visited the Byemoor School on Oct. 17. The students were given a tour of the ambulance and demonstration of the first aid equipment used for checking heart beat, oxygen levels, blood sugar levels, blood pressure, etc.

Frank, who was a former student of the Byemoor School, explained procedures and answered the student’s questions, incorporating his own good humour.

Students and staff of the Byemoor School appreciated Frank’s visit and the great learning experience he provided. It’s apparent Byemoor School makes learning fun.

Election Day on Oct. 16 brought voters out across the province. In the County of Stettler’s Byemoor – Endiang Ward a total of 225 ballots were cast to re-elect incumbent Coun. Les Stulberg for another term with 149 votes over challenger Rob Somerville with 76 votes.

Incumbent Clearview School Division trustee John Schofer was returned for another term with 224 votes over challenger Steve Davies with 150 votes. John will represent the Byemoor, Botha, Gadsby and West Halkirk areas on the school board.

The Byemoor – Endiang area was hit with horrific winds, along with many other areas of the province, on Oct. 17. Locally, steel grain bins were toppled, several small buildings were flattened and destroyed, shingles were ripped from roofs, trees were downed across roadways, there were power outages and anything loose found a new home. Seems nothing can compete with the force of Mother Nature.

Congratulations to Kyle and Janelle Sorensen on the birth of their daughter Mackena Marie Sorensen in the Stettler hospital on Oct. 19. Mackena weighed seven pounds two ounces and is a little sister for Ryland.

Congratulations also to the local grandparents Jim and Leanne Sorensen.

Two teams from the Endiang floor curling club entered in the bonspiel at the Hub in Stettler on Oct. 17. Participating were Ken and Eleanor Schultz, Carol Stulberg, Mickey Tucker, Dave and Carol Sisley, Ernie Angel and Charlie Thompson.

Jenn Bunney is willing to teach figure skating lessons in Byemoor if there is enough interest. For more information contact Jenn.

Nearly 300 patrons enjoyed the Byemoor fall roast beef supper on Saturday. It was awesome to see so many young helpers assisting with serving and clean-up.

Byemoor Hotel donated two $25 gift certificates for raffle prizes and they were won by Bronc Buchwitz and Bev Bergman. The lucky winner of the gift basket donated by Sobey’s in Stettler was Warren Jones.

A special thank you to all who supported the Byemoor fall supper, donated food and prizes, volunteered to organize and helped prepare and serve to make it a success once again. Proceeds go to operation of the community hall.

Congratulations to Byemoor’s Clay Bunney on being named the 2017 bareback riding champion at the CCA finals in Swift Current last week. Way to go Clay, your community is proud of you.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Ray Schultz who passed away on Oct. 21 in Hanna. He was 79. Ray was raised on a farm south of Endiang, the son of Paul and Connie Schultz.

A memorial service will be held for Ray on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. at the Hanna Legion. A private family interment will take place at St. Peter’s Lutheran cemetery. Our thoughts are with the Schultz family in their loss.

Congratulations to former Endiang resident, Jim Carothers, who celebrates his 88th birthday on Oct. 27. Enjoy your day and best wishes for many more happy birthdays, Jim.

Happy birthday wishes are sent to Olwin Pearson, a former Byemoor resident, on the occasion of her 94th birthday on Oct. 30. Congratulations on this special milestone Olwin and best wishes for many more.

Keep in mind the entertainment featuring Mark and Heather at the Byemoor Hotel on Oct. 27-28 at 9 p.m. each evening. On Oct. 28 folks are invited to wear costumes for the pre-Halloween bash. There will be prizes for the best costumes.

Humour for the day — “I want to grow my own food — but can’t find bacon seeds.”
