The Byemoor School students, staff and some parents enjoyed their year-end trip to Deer Valley Meadows near Alix last Tuesday. The students had a great time on the zipline, giant slip and slide, rock wall climbing and had a short soccer camp. The staff at Deer Valley Meadows commented how well behaved the students were. They wrapped up the day with ice cream treats.

Anita Mappin was the bus driver for the trip. The money raised through the hot lunch program on Fridays paid for the yearend trip. Many thanks go to all the parents who helped with the lunch program.

The school doors closed on Wednesday for the summer. We hope everyone has a wonderful summer vacation.

Bob and Eileen Green celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary with a family dinner in Red Deer. Congratulations to the Greens on reaching this special milestone. We wish this fine couple many more happy anniversaries together. Bob and Eileen were longtime residents of the Byemoor community before retiring to Stettler.

Les and Rosemary Stulberg attended the Cher concert in Calgary on Wednesday to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. The concert “Dressed to Kill” was Cher’s farewell tour and as the name of the concert implies she had a different costume for every song. It was a fantastic production. Cher is 68 and can still sing as good as ever.

The Byemoor 4-H Beef Club held its awards dinner on Thursday evening at the Byemoor Hall. Congratulations to all the members on another successful year. The club celebrated its 60th anniversary this year. 4-H is a very worthy program, hopefully the club can operate for many more years so more members can benefit from the life-long learning skills achieved through 4-H.
