Breakfast with Santa enjoyed by little ones in Endiang

Congratulations to Lane and Bobbi Buchwitz on the birth of their second son, Kord Lane, at the Drumheller hospital Dec. 6. He weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz. and is a little brother for Cash. Grandparents are Robert and Sheila Buchwitz of Endiang and Maureen Olsen of Stettler. Great-grandparents are Nat and Alvina Buchwitz of Hanna.

Byron and Linda Wilkie along with Ryan and Tara Schilling have returned home from an enjoyable trip to Las Vegas.

We extend sympathy to the family of Alice Keibel, a former Endiang resident, who passed away Dec. 11. She was 89. Mrs. Keibel and her husband Archie farmed south of Endiang for many years where they raised a family of four and also were very active in their church.

The Keibels retired to Stettler and Alice spent her final years in the nursing home in Castor. Alice was predeceased by her husband Archie and son Ken and is survived by her sons Allan (Kathleen) Keibel and Garry (Shirley) Keibel and daughter June (Gus) Mattheis, her grandchildren, other relatives and friends. Her funeral service will be held in Stettler Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. at the Stettler Baptist Church. Our thoughts are with all the family in their loss of a wonderful lady.

Clifton and Mickey Tucker journeyed to Oyen on the weekend to watch their grandsons Christopher and Matthew Tucker play hockey.

About 35 people enjoyed breakfast with Santa at Our Home Kitchen in Endiang on Sunday morning. The little ones got to meet Santa and each received a treat bag and had their picture taken with the jolly fellow.

Several members of the Endmoor Drop-in Centre travelled to Red Deer Sunday for the Rita McNeil concert. They thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas performance by Ms. McNeil.

Remember, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church will be holding their Candlelight Christmas Service Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. with all most welcome to attend.
