Shannon Knowles and Vicki Ballinger flew to North Dakota last week for the funeral of their dad’s cousin, Bud Ballinger. He was 90. Bud is survived by Eva, his wife of 69 years, and six children and their families. Bud and Eva made many trips to Endiang to visit Wayne and Lois Ballinger over the years and they got to know many in our community during those visits. Our sympathy goes to the Ballinger family in their loss.

The Scapa community is hosting a farewell potluck supper on Sunday, July 21 at 4 p.m. at the Scapa hall for several folks who have left their community. The event will bid farewell to Dan and Lil Weich, Scott and Krista Viste, Lester and Judy Diegel, Dallas Chidley, Wayne and Debbie Fecho, Fiona Briody and Carol Mammel.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the community gift ($3 per family) can call Thelma Bossert at 403-854-2393.

Joe and Beth Knowles had their grandchildren, Nigel and Adelynn Kroeker from Lamont, spend a week with them. They returned home on Sunday. The children’s mother Deanna and their 12-year-old sister Miranda were in Guatemala on mission work at an orphanage for the week. They reported unbelievable poverty.

Several folks from the district attended the wedding of Carla Potter and Pernell Van Straten in Stettler on Saturday. Congratulations to this fine young couple.

There were a few Endiang connections of note at the Calgary Stampede. The Schellenbergs had their Endiang bucking bulls at the Stampede.

Longtime stampede fans Ken and Eleanor Schultz were among those taking in the stampede. It was Ken’s 71st time at the Calgary Stampede and the 61st time for Eleanor.

Several people saw Chad Sorensen on TV as he brought his father-in-law Neal Walgenbach’s chuckwagon on a parade in front of the grandstand, following one of the races.

Lee Hunt and Jim and Maureen Wasdal were to Millarville on the weekend for the wedding of their grandson and nephew Cody Armstrong. Cody is the son of Len and Sue (nee Hunt) Armstrong.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz are hosting their 31st annual pancake breakfast and campout weekend on July 19-21 at their farm. There will be fireworks on Saturday night. On Sunday is the pancake breakfast, the 10th annual Great Endiang Balloon Race, Frisbee golf and a potluck supper. The Schultzs extend an invitation to all to attend any or all of the weekend.

Keep in mind the Wilkie 100-year farm celebration at Don and Wanda Wilkie’s on July 20, beginning at 3 p.m. They extend an invitation to all to join them in celebrating.

We send get well wishes to Jerry Woelk, who has spent several weeks in the Hanna hospital. Hope you are on the mend and home soon, Jerry.
