Byemoor Community Hall hosts Santa Dec. 2

Byemoor School community packed 51 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child

Santa Claus is coming to town — Byemoor that is. Be sure to circle Saturday, Dec. 2 on your calendars for Santa Claus Day at the Byemoor Community Hall from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The 4-H club will be selling Christmas trees in front of the Endmoor Drop-In Centre beginning at 11 a.m.

Craft and bake sale tables will be stocked with lots of goods for your Christmas shopping pleasure throughout the day. Tables are available for $10 by calling Rhonda at 403-579-2228.

Santa arrives at 2 p.m. Each child receives a candy bag, a chance to sit on Santa’s knee for a photo-op and the opportunity to share their Christmas wish list.

There will be raffle draws and a concession will be available. Be sure to come out and enjoy this kick-off to Christmas festivities.

Endmoor Drop-In Society’s annual Senior’s Christmas Dinner and entertainment is coming up on Dec. 7. Any seniors 65 years and older who live or previously lived in the Endiang-Byemoor community interested in attending are reminded to call Eleanor Schultz at 405-579-2344 or Deanna Johnson at 403-579-2331 by Nov. 28. This is so numbers can be confirmed with the caterer.

Byemoor School students and members of the community packed 51 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child at the school last Friday. This is an amazing feat for a small, 30-student school. The shoeboxes will be shipped in time for Christmas to brighten the lives of less fortunate children in central America. Recipient countries include Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica and perhaps Venezuela and Haiti.

Russ and Linda Kobi and some members of their family enjoyed a break from winter with a vacation to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Accompanying Russ and Linda were their daughter and son-in-law Holly and Robert Stanger and their three children. Three more grandchildren, the children of Erin and Brian Prehn, also joined in the fun.

Get well wishes are sent to Bruce Gallagher who is in a Calgary hospital. We hope you are feeling better soon, Bruce.

Endiang floor curling club sent the team of Dave and Carol Sisley, Doug Harrold and Charlie Thompson to a bonspiel in Bawlf last week.

A group from the Endmoor Drop-In Society as well as others from the Endmoor community took in one of the performances of “Cookin’ with Gus” presented by the Heartland Arts Troupe in Stettler last week.

Belated Happy Birthday wishes are sent to Lee Hunt who celebrated her 84th birthday on Nov. 9.

Happy 61st Wedding Anniversary wishes are extended to Ken and Eleanor Schultz, celebrating their special milestone on Nov. 24.

We send Happy Birthday wishes to former resident Thelma Keast who is celebrating her 97th birthday on Nov. 28. Congratulations on this milestone Thelma, your Endmoor friends are thinking of you and send their best wishes.

Humour for the day — “If only closed minds came with closed mouths.”
