A number of friends and relatives attended to wish the ladies well and enjoy some birthday cake and beverages with them. Congratulations on your special milestone, Doreen and best wishes for many more to you both.

Hockey action in Byemoor on the Jan. 21-22 weekend saw the Endmoor Thunder U9 team host Carstairs on Saturday and Drumheller on Sunday.
The area has been experiencing plenty of foggy days with frosty sculptures lately; but, the downside is the heavy frost on power lines has caused some power outages. Our hats go off to the ATCO employees for working long hours to restore the power in all areas.
For those who believe in the folklore that precipitation will follow fog by 90 days, it may mean a very wet April. Time will tell.
