Byemoor Store to close doors effective March 1

The Endiang-Byemoor community was very well represented at the County of Stettler’s 40th Annual Community Service Awards gala in Big Valley.

ENDIANG/BYEMOOR NEWS — The Endiang-Byemoor community was very well represented at the County of Stettler’s 40th Annual Community Service Awards gala in Big Valley on Friday evening, Feb. 10.

Congratulations to the local winners, Twila Buchwitz and Rylee Jones on their most deserving awards.

Twila was the recipient of the Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society Community Service Award for her many years of tireless volunteerism.

Twila has been actively involved in most of the Endiang and Byemoor organizations, holding key roles that have made our community better.

Thank you to Twila for your valued contributions to the community.

Nine-year-old Rylee Jones was awarded the Endmoor Culture and Recreation Society Community Service Youth Award. Besides being a great help in our community Rylee has also excelled in helping others far beyond our community with her charitable work. Her own fundraising initiatives have benefited the Make a Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House and STARS. Rylee is in the process of growing her hair out for a second time to donate for wigs for cancer patients.

Rylee you are truly an inspiration to young people everywhere.

Again, thanks and congratulations to Twila and Rylee, our community is very proud of you both.

Several folks from the community attended the funeral service for Chris Hintz at the Lutheran Church in Stettler on Friday. Chris was 89 and is survived by his brother Ted Hintz in B.C. and his sister Regina Marshall in Stettler. He was predeceased by his parents and three brothers, Adolf Leippi, Sam Hintz and Reinhold Hintz.

The Boar’s Cup hockey tournament is coming up at the Endmoor Arena in Byemoor on Feb. 17-19. Be sure to take in some of the hockey action.

Unfortunate news for the community, as no buyer has come forward to purchase the Byemoor Store the owner Twila Buchwitz has announced the store, post office and gas station will close its doors effective March 1, 2017.

Hopefully, someone will step forward in the final hour to save this valuable service and hub for the community.

Dale and Dee Green, along with friends from Stettler, Charlie and Wynn Nemetz and Darren and Debbie Sutton, have returned from an enjoyable vacation to the warmth and beauty of Costa Rica and Panama.

At the Endmoor Drop-In Centre’s crib meet on Thursday, Feb. 9 it was the men’s turn to shine. Doug Harrold posted the top score while Ken Schultz placed second.

There will be no crib this week. Next crib meet will be on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 1 p.m.
