Byemoor fall supper is Oct. 21

Alberta roast beef on the menu

Submitted by Les and Rosemary Stulberg Byemoor/Endiang news

The Byemoor community’s annual Fall Supper is fast approaching. Patrons will be treated to a wonderful Alberta roast beef meal with all the trimmings on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 4-7 p.m. at the Byemoor Community Hall. Be sure to come out, socialize and enjoy a good home-cooked meal all while supporting the community.

One of the worst early fall snow storms in recent memory hit the Endiang – Byemoor area on Monday, Oct. 2. The high volume of heavy, wet snow accompanied by strong winds wreaked havoc on a fairly large area, closing highways, knocking out power and blocking country roads.

Some areas of our district were without power for three days. The most disheartening damage was the loss of hundreds of shelterbelt trees around homes and farms. Many evergreen trees had their tops snapped off, while other trees sustained extensive damage and some trees were even up-rooted. A lot of work will be involved in cleaning up the mess. It’s a storm that won’t be forgotten soon.

That early snow is also a reminder that flu season isn’t far off. Please note a free flu shots clinic will be offered on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the Byemoor School Library from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For further information please call Nicole Devaleriola at 403-820-2400.

Congratulations to Dan and Verla Buchwitz on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary on Oct. 7. The Buchwitz’s had celebrated their special milestone earlier in the year. We wish Dan and Verla many more happy anniversaries.

The 3rd annual Grant Paulsen Memorial Skeet Shoot was held at the farm of Winnie Paulsen on Saturday, Oct. 7. A good crowd of family and friends braved the cool, windy weather and gathered to remember Grant and to participate in one of his favourite pastimes.

Eldon McCrindle was the guest of honour at a surprise 75th birthday party at his home on Saturday, Oct. 7. He and Sharon had all their family home for the occasion and celebrated Thanksgiving together as well. Congratulations on the special milestone, Eldon and best wishes for many more.

After 12 years of driving school bus on the Big Valley route Roxy Gallagher has resigned her position. Including the years she was a spare driver in this area it would bring her driving career up to close to a span 25 years. Enjoy your retirement, Roxy.

Keep in mind the entertainment coming up at the Byemoor Hotel on Oct. 27-28. The talents of Mark Fecho and Heather Brown will be featured each evening, beginning around 9 p.m. Folks are encouraged to dress in costume on the Saturday night, Oct. 28 to celebrate Halloween. Prizes will be awarded to the best costumes.

Thought for the day —“A positive mind finds opportunity in everything. A negative mind finds fault in everything.”
