Endiang shows its true colours this summer

It’s been a healthy growing season this summer

The hamlet of Endiang is looking its finest this summer, with an abundance of flower tubs blooming profusely around town and green grass neatly trimmed.

If there was a National Hamlets in Bloom contest, Endiang would surely do well in that competition. Hats off to those who keep the hamlet looking so nice.

Congratulations to a former Endiang resident, Darla (nee Johnson) Borrowman, on her graduation Thursday from the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School at St. Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., located south of Montreal.

Darla spent the past three months in Quebec, completing that part of her training. She plans to combine the military training with a nursing degree to eventually work as a nurse on a military base.

Her husband, RCMP officer Eric Borrowman, along with her children Ben and Olivia of Sylvan Lake and parents Don and Blanche Johnson of Stettler, attended the graduation ceremony. They spent a few extra days in Montreal touring sites of interest.

Also attending the ceremony was a longtime friend of Darla’s, also formerly from Endiang, Lindsay (nee Tucker) Bowness, now of Kingston, Ont.

There were a couple of weddings of local interest on the weekend. We send congratulations to the newlyweds.

Doris Schilling’s granddaughter was married Saturday in Calgary and several local members of the Schilling-Walker family attended.

Erica Steinwand and Andrew Kramer were married at Heritage Park in an outdoor ceremony, with the reception held at the historic Wainwright Hotel on the park.

Erica is the daughter of Ewald and Rhonda (nee Schilling) Steinwand of Castor.

Marilyne Boehlke and members of her family attended the wedding of Clayton Conners and his bride Bonnie on Saturday. The wedding was held in the yard of the groom’s mother, Linda (nee Smith) Conners, near Duchess.

The Endiang district had visitors on Friday in search of their roots. Elsie Wilson of Leduc and her daughter Fay Wilson of Calgary were looking for the original homestead of Elsie’s father, Bill Osbourne. The Osbourne brothers, Bill and Bob, had homesteaded east of Endiang on land near Sullivan Lake in the early years.

Les and Rosemary Stulberg attended a performance of Jersey Boys in Edmonton on Saturday. It was an excellent production, with a former Stettler resident, Michael Lomenda, in the cast.

On the weekend, Les and Rosemary also helped son Travis Stulberg move from Beaumont back to Stettler, where he has gained employment.

Thought for the day — Why is it when someone tells you there are one billion stars in the universe you believe them, but if they tell you a wall has wet paint, you have to touch it to be sure.
