Byemoor School community calendars are ready for pick-up

A notice to anyone who purchased the community calendars from the school, the new calendars are now ready for pick-up at the Byemoor Store.

Get well wishes go out to Clifton Tucker, who is a patient in the Drumheller hospital. He was also in the hospital in Calgary. We hope you are on the mend and feeling well soon, Clifton.

Sympathy is extended to the family of John Donald who passed away on Aug. 25 at Blairmore at the age of 84 years. John spent his early years at Endiang, the son of the late Johnny and Adelaide Donald. He is survived by his twin brother Murray Donald of Victoria, B.C. as well as his son Gary (Terri) Donald, his daughter Patricia and two grandchildren.

Maureen Wasdal joined her sister Barb and Bill Paetz of Eckville and daughter Mandy of Red Deer for a camping trip to Ya Ha Tinda, west of Sundre last week.

Word was received of the passing of Emma Gutsche of Calgary on Aug. 27. Emma and her late husband Emil came to Endiang from Germany in 1952. Emil worked briefly at the Hunt Ranch before taking a job as a section-man for the CNR in Endiang. He later transferred to Hanna, then Calgary. Emma is survived by two sons Gerhardt (Carmen) and Henry. Her funeral service will be held in Calgary on Wednesday. Our thoughts are with the Gutsche family in their loss.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz spent the weekend camping at Torrington with other members of their Wildrose Explorers RV Club.

Rosemary Stulberg along with her parents Bob and Dorothy Diprose were to Calgary on Saturday to visit Rosemary’s aunt Peggy Schrock, who is in the Rockyview Hospital.

If there is enough interest there are plans to hold adult recreational volleyball one night a week in Byemoor beginning some time in September. If you are interested in participating, give a call to either Rick Laak at 579-2404 or Theresa Christie at 579-2133. Hopefully there will be enough interest to get this going.

Bon voyage to Dusty Wasdal, who is off to Australia for the rest of the year on a working vacation. We hope you enjoy your time in Australia, Dusty.

Recent visitors with Gus and June Mattheis were their son Tyler and Margaret Mattheis and young son from Fort Nelson, B.C.

Some local folks took in the Bull-a-rama at Halkirk, the slo-pitch tournament at Hanna and/or the Gadsby centennial celebration on the weekend.

Birthday greetings go out to: Sept. 3 – Julie Jones, Sept. 4 – Rocky Schilling, Sept. 5 – Walter Schuler and Gail Irion, Sept. 7 – Vicki Ballinger.

Happy anniversary to Wes and Karen Gutsche on Sept. 5.
