BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The Ladies Curling Bonspiel at the Byemoor Curling Club wrapped up on Saturday, Jan. 7. Congratulations to all the winners and those who supported the event. Capturing the A event was the Brett Bignell team of Erskine over Marj Kiemele’s Rumsey team.

B event final saw two Byemoor teams competing with Kary Lyn Keith winning over Carolin Schofer.

In the C event it was the Betty Campbell team of Byemoor with a win over Kelsey Steen of Rumsey.

The Byemoor Store, post office and gas bar is in danger of closing if a buyer doesn’t come forward soon. Owner Twila Buchwitz announced if there is no interest shown in purchasing the store by Tuesday, Jan. 31 she will have to select a date for closure.

Twila has served the community well with her business for the past eight years but with increasing family commitments she has decided to sell.

The business is an important part of the community, so hopefully there is an entrepreneur out there who will seize this opportunity to operate a business of their own.

Byemoor School collected an impressive amount of food donations around Christmas time and has donated them to the Big Valley Food Bank. Good work Byemoor community.

Sympathy is extended to Elsie Walker and family on the passing of Elsie’s sister Frieda (nee Dietterle) Brockmann on Saturday, Dec. 31 at Medicine Hat. She was 83.

Frieda grew up on a farm north of Byemoor, where John and Carolin Schofer live today. She was the eldest of three daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Adolf Dietterle. Frieda and her husband Robert Brockmann farmed at Esther, Alberta for many years.

Our thoughts are with the Walker and Brockmann families in their loss.

Birthday wishes are sent to Herb Gutsche on his 91st birthday, which he celebrated on Sunday, Jan. 8. Best wishes for many more, Herb.

Word was received of the passing of Doreen (nee Lyxzen) Kerner on Thursday, Dec. 22 at Bow Island. She was 96. Doreen, the only child of Fred and Hilda Lyxzen, was raised on a farm west of Crow Hill School on the Scapa Road. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Thought for the day: “The secret to living well and longer is: Eat half, walk double, laugh triple and love without measure.” – Tibetan proverb
