Benefit dance for Bruce Woelk drew big crowd in Endiang

Congratulations to Kirk and Suzanne Sorensen on the birth of their daughter Alerie Rose at the Daysland hospital Nov. 2. Congratulations also to the grandparents, Marj Sorensen of Hanna and Colin and Barb Kroetsch of Heisler.

The Endiang Hall was filled to capacity Nov. 6 for the Bruce Woelk benefit dance. The evening started with a delicious meal, followed by both a silent and live auction of many donated items and concluded with a dance to the music of Marty & Company. Bruce is in Calgary, where he continues to receive treatments for leukemia. The generous support of the community and surrounding areas will be a great help to the Woelks.

Kristy Smith and Claire Hamilton returned to England on Wednesday following a three-week stay with Bill and Linda Smith and other family and friends.

Luann Buchwitz got home Saturday from Smyrna Beach, Florida where she spent three weeks taking an art painting course. She enjoyed the course very much and is now a certified instructor in painting.

Sympathy is extended to the family of long time Endiang resident Bunnie Boehlke, who passed away Nov. 2 in Hanna at age 95. Born Esther Lena Schultz, Bunnie, as she was better known, was the daughter of Endiang pioneers Edward and Lena Schultz. Bunnie and her husband, the late Reinhold Boehlke, lived most of their lives in the Endiang district and had one daughter Mickey (Clifton) Tucker. A memorial service was held at the Endiang Hall on Wednesday.

Les and Rosemary Stulberg returned home Sunday morning from a week vacation to Las Vegas where they enjoyed a wonderful break, taking in many shows and tours.

Rob Maginn returned Sunday from a week-long trip to Korea, where he accompanied his dad Bob Maginn and friend Paul Rochon and his son Luke. Bob Maginn was one of 20 Canadian war veterans being honoured in Korea for a revisit of the Korean War.
