Celebratory week for youth from Endmoor area

It was another busy weekend for graduation exercises, with local folks taking in the ceremonies at Castor and Stettler.

Byemoor School kindergarten to Grade 3 students were busy working in the school garden last week.

It was another busy weekend for graduation exercises, with local folks taking in the ceremonies at Castor and Stettler.

Congratulations to Tristan van Zandbergen, one of the graduates of Gus Wetter High School in Castor on Friday evening.

Graduation exercises were held in Stettler for William E. Hay Composite High School graduates on Saturday.

Congratulations to Spencer Van Hecke, a former Byemoor student, and to Byemoor 4-H Beef Club graduating members Kourtney Schilling, Tyler Stewart and Mark Forrester.

Congratulations also to the graduates with local connections — Brandon Grams, Kae-Lynn Sorensen and Devon Woelk.

We welcome Kyle and Janelle Sorensen to the community. They moved from the Stettler area into the former Agnes Sorensen home on the Sorensen farm on the weekend. For Kyle, it’s coming back to the farm he was raised on. It is nice to have more young people in our community.

Ruthie’s Roost is presenting “Beef and Balladeer” for your entertainment and dining pleasure at her café on June 1 at 6 p.m. Country-folk singer Chris Schauer will entertain after the roast beef supper.

Tickets are going quickly and are sold in advance only at Ruthie’s Roost.

The students at the Byemoor School have been busy lately.

On Thursday, the entire school group — armed with garbage bags — completed their annual town cleanup in Byemoor. It’s a commendable and much-appreciated effort, making the hamlet look  much better.

The kindergarten to Grade 3 classes has been busy planting their school garden. They started many of the plants themselves and painted the row markers, as well.

An interesting school science project had students observing the emergence of Painted Lady butterflies. They report a 100 per cent success rate of the caterpillars turning into butterflies.

Kate Woelk and Glen Ouellette had a visit from their two aunts and an uncle from Dryden, Ont.

Keep in mind the bridal shower for Delaine Green, bride-to-be of Jonathan Bennett, on June 1 at 1 p.m. at the Byemoor hall. Women of the community are asked to contribute to the lunch.

The Scapa Strawberry Tea is set for June 3 at 2 p.m. at the Scapa hall. All are welcome.

The Endmoor Drop-In Centre is celebrating “Seniors’ Week” on June 6 at 2 p.m. at the centre with coffee, goodies and a fruit tray supplied by the county.

Everyone is welcome; you don’t have to be a senior to attend. Come out and enjoy coffee and a visit with the local seniors.

The Byemoor 4-H Drama Club presents “Blazing Guns at Roaring Gulch” on June 6 at the Byemoor hall at 7 p.m. Admission is a food bank donation.

Thought for the day — The reason women’s minds are cleaner than men’s is that they change it so often.
