Byemoor/Endiang News

District farmers were in full swing of harvest operations until they were abruptly halted by the rain Sunday evening. The rain turned to snow Monday — not what farmers want now.

School doors opened on Tuesday in Byemoor and students are hitting the books once again. Enrolment is up this year to 32 students. The teaching staff and bus drivers remain the same as last term — Corey van Zandbergen, principal; teachers Mandy Dushanek and Gwen Keith; secretary-librarian Linda Kobi and bus drivers Sandra Keith, Anita Mappin and Rosemary Stulberg.

On Tuesday four new little faces joined the school for kindergarten. The all-boy class is made up of Wyatt Fournier, Kalel Grams, Rowdy Jones and Kai Tucker.

The Byemoor School is hosting its annual Terry Fox Run on Sept. 19. Anyone wishing to help sponsor the event may make a pledge with any student or by contacting the school.

We send congratulations to Art and Dot Wasdal on their 65th wedding anniversary. They marked their special milestone on Sept. 3. Art and Dot have lived and farmed in the Byemoor district all of their 65 married years and have been active community supporters. We join their many friends and neighbours in wishing this fine couple many more happy years together.

We are pleased to welcome a new family to our community. Mario Fournier and Sabrina Cartwright and their three children have moved to the former Bob Walker place. The family moved from Veteran. Mario operates a road grader for the County of Stettler, taking over the Byemoor west grader beat when Doug Reeves retired. Welcome Mario, Sabrina and family, we hope you enjoy our community.

Mark your calendars for “Stage Fright” on Oct. 15 at the Byemoor Hall. It is billed as a nerve shattering illusion show guaranteed to give you goose bumps. Presented by the Byemoor School Educational Society, it is a fundraiser for the school. Watch for further details closer to the event.

Wes and Karen Gutsche along with their daughter and son-in-law Jenna and Corey Fischbuch of Hanna enjoyed a 10-day holiday to Prince Edward Island. They visited with friends while on the island.

Shannon Knowles and her children and grandchildren along with Dolores Pearson and her daughter and grandchildren enjoyed a leisurely float by raft down the Red Deer River on Sunday. They rafted from Trenville Park to McKenzie Crossing on a beautiful autumn day. Attending the family outing with Shannon and Dolores were Jonathon and Raelyn Knowles, Denny and Ryan Dettmer, Jennifer and Corey Dittman, Carla Anderson and their families and some friends.

Kristy Smith returned to her home in Aldershot, England after spending three weeks with her parents Bill and Linda Smith and sister Tammy Burns and family. Linda Smith and Carol Stulberg drove Kristy to the Calgary Airport on Saturday.

Smile for the day — “If a man says he will do something, he will. There is no need to remind him every six months.”
