Endiang man in World Senior Games in Utah

Wasdal brings home bronze

Jim and Maureen Wasdal have returned from St. George, Utah where Jim competed in the Huntsman World Senior Games. Jim competed in senior men’s soft ball with the Central Alberta team. The team had good success and brought home a bronze medal. Congratulations, Jim and team.

Endiang floor curling club sent three teams to the bonspiel in Castor on Thursday, Oct. 12. Those participating included Ernie Angel, Irene Brooker, Carol Stulberg, Mickey Tucker, Ken Schultz, Eleanor Schultz, Doug Harrold, Cliff Donald, Terry Gallant, Eva Nielsen, Dave Sisley and Charlie Thompson. They weren’t in the major prizes but reported an enjoyable time.

We extend sympathy to the family of Art Wasdal who passed away on Oct. 15 in Stettler at the age of 94 years. Art would have been 95 next month. Art spent his entire life growing up and farming in the Endiang-Byemoor area. He and his wife Dot raised a family of six children and were actively involved in the community. Art, a highly-esteemed member of the community, lived a good, long and productive life and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Our thoughts are with Art’s wife Dot, his family Stan (Beatte), Jim (Maureen), Murray (Kim), Ray (Leslie) and Wendy (Lyle) and their families and his sisters Thelma Keast and May Knowles in their time of loss.

Sympathy is extended to Gladys Macleod on the passing of her mother on Oct. 12. Gladys, Doug and family are in our thoughts at this time.

The community fall supper season has begun. Byemoor community is hosting their roast beef supper on Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Byemoor Community Hall. Supper is served from 4 – 7 p.m. It’s a supper you won’t want to miss.

Byemoor School hosted Reading Week last week. Members of the community came in and read stories to the students in the library — an excellent experience for both.

Dale and Dee Green are back from a vacation to Osoyoos, B.C. with their motorhome. They met up with Gordie and Roxy Gallagher and Doug and Lori Roberts there and enjoyed a great time together.

Byemoor School Awards program is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 20 at 2:15 p.m. with all welcome to attend.

Quote of the day — “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others throw at him.”
