A great honour for the Schellenbergs and bestowed upon a homegrown bull. Way to go Schellenbergs!

Robert and Sheila Buchwitz are home from an enjoyable maritime vacation. They were joined by Reg and Sharon Nitschke of Stettler and toured the sights in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.

The holiday was a belated celebration of Robert and Sheila’s 40th wedding anniversary from earlier this year.

Lindsay Jennings Jones and her daughter Charleen visited Lindsay’s home province of Nova Scotia. While there they celebrated Lindsay’s Grandpa Jennings’ 90th birthday and attended the wedding of a cousin.

Shirley Campbell will be the guest of honour at an 80th birthday celebration hosted by her family. The social is on Oct. 25 at the Byemoor hall and begins at 2 p.m. All are welcome.

Some local folks were volunteers at the giant Rummage Sale in Hanna on the weekend.

Many of the Byemoor School students are taking swimming lessons in Stettler, held after school twice weekly until the end of the month. Judy Buchwitz is driving the swim bus.

The school calendar fundraiser pays for the students’ transportation. Thanks to the calendar supporters for your valuable contribution.

The Byemoor School Awards presentation is on Oct. 17 at 2:15 p.m. at the school gymnasium.

A special thank you goes to the Superfluity Shop in Stettler for its generous donation of $700 to the Byemoor School nutrition program.

Keep in mind the bridal shower for Angeline Mappin, bride-elect of Lindsey Shadlock, on Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Byemoor hall. Women of the community are asked to please bring lunch.

Mark your calendar for “Stage Fright” sponsored by the Byemoor School Educational Society. The thrilling illusion show is on Oct. 15 at the Byemoor hall. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the show to start at 7 p.m.

Don’t forget the annual Byemoor fall roast beef supper on Oct. 19 from 4-7 p.m. at the Byemoor hall.

This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some good Alberta beef along with the great home cooking and hospitality of the Byemoor community. Please note the supper has been changed to Sunday this year.

Thanksgiving is coming up this weekend. We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend with family and friends and enjoys the traditional feast. We have so much to be thankful for in this great province of ours, even though we may take it for granted at times.

Smile for the day — “If you fall, I am there.” — The Floor
