Byemoor hosted inter-municipal business supper

Elected and administrative representatives from four neighbouring municipalities met at the Byemoor hall on Thursday evening.

Elected and administrative representatives from four neighbouring municipalities met at the Byemoor hall on Thursday evening for a joint inter-municipal supper meeting. The ladies from the Byemoor hall catered a delicious roast beef supper. The counties of Paintearth, Starland and Stettler along with the Special Areas Board gathered to discuss items of common interest, ways to collaborate effectively as a group and advocate concerns to the provincial government. The joint meeting has become an annual event and because of its central location, Byemoor will be the venue again next year.

The Seniors’ Christmas Dinner sponsored by the Endmoor Drop-in Society is set for Dec. 10 at noon at the Byemoor hall and this year will feature the entertainment of Country Friends, which follows a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

The drop-in society honours all seniors 65 and older who live or have lived in the Endiang Byemoor community, for their contribution to the community, with this free dinner and show.

Those interested in attending are asked to call Eleanor Schultz at 403-579-2344 or Deanna Johnson at 403-579-2331 by Dec. 3 so numbers can be confirmed with the caterer.

We send get well wishes to Luann Buchwitz recuperating from knee replacement surgery at the Camrose hospital and to Wes Gutsche recuperating in the Hanna hospital from a farm-related quad accident. We hope you are both on the mend soon.

Crib night at the Endmoor Drop-in Centre on Tuesday saw Eleanor Schultz place first and Eileen Smyth second. The next crib meet will be on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

DeAnna Groundwater enjoyed a few days in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at Le-Vel’s Thrive Ultra Lifestyle Getaway with her associates.

The Byemoor School held its Remembrance Day service on Wednesday, as there is no school on Nov. 11.

Happy 90th birthday wishes from the Endmoor community go out to Bryce Mailer, who celebrated his special milestone on Nov. 5. Bryce is well-known to many and at one time ranched between Byemoor and Gadsby.

We send happy 65th birthday wishes to Brenda Zeimer on Nov. 14. Enjoy those government cheques, Brenda.

Thought for the day In this age when there is a cell phone app for everything, this is something to consider “There is no app to replace your lap. Read to your child.”
