Byemoor’s Terry Fox runners raise $900 for cancer battle

The district enjoyed record-breaking temperatures last week and it appears Indian Summer is upon us.

The district enjoyed record-breaking temperatures last week and it appears Indian Summer is upon us. The good weather has seen many farmers wrap up their harvest earlier than usual this year.

Byemoor School hosted the Terry Fox Run on Friday with more than 30 participants. The majority of runners wore patriotic red and white and raised $900.

The youngest participant was eight-month-old Violet Dittman, who was pushed in a stroller by her mom Jennifer.

Dave and Luann Buchwitz, along with Kelly and Bobbi Buchwitz and boys, attended the Sept. 8 wedding of their nephew and cousin Brent Schooler to Lacey Jahraus at Rimbey.

Brent is the son of Brad and Pam (nee Lohrmann) Schooler. Luann made the wedding cake for the happy couple.

The Grams family has a new addition. Congratulations to Danny and Marie on the birth of their son, Ketevin Lyric William Grams, born at the Stettler hospital on Sept. 12.

Ketevin weighed eight pounds and nine ounces and has a big sister, Keshna, and a big brother, Kalel, to welcome him at home.

Congratulations to the local grandparents Rod and Debbie Grams and great-grandparents Jack and Vi Grams and Norm Kelly.

Please be advised Ruthie’s Roost, the café in Endiang, will be closed until further notice, as Ruth takes the time needed to regain her health after surgery.

Ruth expects to re-open in October, but watch upcoming columns for the exact date.

Jack Hayden was in Calgary on the weekend for a special family event. His brother, Doug Hayden, was ordained as a minister in the Community of Christ Church. Congratulations, Doug.

Jack and Doug’s mother, Ethel Hayden, 88, also attended. It’s wonderful to hear she enjoys excellent health, and is still doing volunteer work and driving her car in the city.

Four new faces arrived at the school Tuesday for the first day of kindergarten. This year’s class is Leland Dittman, Emma Jack, Rylee Jones and Callie Tucker.

When we were digging our potatoes, we discovered moles had tunnelled their way under the potato hills on the outside row.

It appears the little varmints have a taste for potatoes — chewing on many and a few were nearly completely eaten. We were wondering if anyone else experienced this problem.
