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.

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.

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