Byemoor 4-H to meet to reorganize

We finally are getting some nice weather and combines are starting to roll in the area. Farmers are hoping for a good stretch of weather to get this late harvest in the bin.

Congratulations to Travis James and Brett Rogers on their recent engagement.

The land-fill transfer station will soon be going to winter hours. Oct. 13 is the last Wednesday the transfer station will be open. After that, it will only be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sympathy is extended to the Mohl and Schultz families on the passing of Marvyn Mohl at Brooks on Sept. 22. He was 72. His wife was the former Joan Schultz of Endiang.

The county has just completed a mile and a half of new road construction on the Hunting Lodge road, thus completing the link to Scapa Road.

Clifton and Mickey Tucker have as their guest their cousin Velma Gore of Westbank, B.C. staying with them.

Congratulations to Kristin Nixon and Taylor Coates who were married Saturday at the Anglican Church in Byemoor.

It was a beautiful day and the wedding pictures were taken at the immaculate farmyard of the bride’s parents, Dave and Lynne Nixon. The reception and dance were held in Stettler and were very well attended by many folks from Byemoor and Endiang. The newlyweds will be residing in Botha; best of luck to them as they start their married life together.

The Stettler Public Library is hitting the road and plans to offer “Read and Rhyme” a program aimed at those five years old and younger. It will be coming to Byemoor the second Monday of each month, with the exception of October. Due to Thanksgiving falling on that day, the program will be held Oct. 25 instead. There is no charge and the adults accompanying the children are also welcome. Read and Rhyme will be held at the Endmoor Drop- In Centre at 10:30 a.m.

Further to last week’s news when Rob and Laurie Somerville were to Ottawa for cattle commission meetings, they also visited Montreal for some sight seeing. While in Montreal they happened to run into Andy and Betty Birch from Stettler. It can be a small world sometimes.

If any youngsters in the area are interested in raising a 4-H beef project this year. the Byemoor 4-H Beef Club is holding their re-organization meeting Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. at the arena in Byemoor and would welcome any new members.

Birthday greetings go out to: Oct. 8 – Allison and Erica Yates, Oct. 9 – Travis Shepherdson, Oct. 11 – Donnie Walker and Doug Reeves, Oct. 13 – Clifton Tucker, Brad Paulsen, Lane Buchwitz and Jim Stimson.
