Happy Birthday wishes go to a couple of former Endiang residents who celebrated some milestone birthdays — Art Gutsche celebrated his 85th on Aug. 1 and Margaret Jones marked her 80th on Aug. 3. Congratulations on reaching these special milestones and best wishes to you both for many more happy birthdays.

Matt Tateson has moved a mobile home on to the former Albert and Rose Abram farm yard. It is nice to see the old farmsteads populated once again by young people. Enjoy your new home, Matt.

A large number of Endmoor folks attended the Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose on the weekend, enjoying their favourite country music stars’ performances. It was a good chance to catch up to your friends and neighbours.

Congratulations to a former Endiang couple who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Ray and Linda Bossert are marking their special occasion with a social from 1-4 p.m. on Aug. 8 at the Golden Age Drop-In Centre in Coronation. Best wishes to Ray and Linda for many more happy years together. The Bosserts once lived just north of where Jim and Leanne Sorensen live.

Remember the Byemoor Fair and slo-pitch tournament is coming up on Aug. 15-16. Be sure to get your slo-pitch team entered by calling Bobbi Buchwitz at 403-579-2432. There are lots of activities planned. Fireworks Friday night kick off the weekend. Pancake breakfast will be served Saturday and Sunday mornings. The parade goes on Saturday at 11 a.m. Be sure to be planning your parade entries now. A kids’ carnival will be held again on Saturday and there is a roast beef supper that evening.
