Endmoor minor hockey readies to drop the puck

An Endmoor minor hockey meeting has been planned for Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Endmoor arena to get things organized for the coming hockey season and to see if there will be enough players.

The meeting will include all Endmoor teams, mites (four to six years old), novice (seven and eight years old), as well as the Endmoor atoms playing in Big Valley.

If you’re unable to attend or require more information, call Rhonda at 403-579-2135 or 403-742-9634.

If anyone is interested in teaching power-skating or figure-skating, please contact Rhonda at the above numbers.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Augusta Burt, who passed away at Creston, B.C., in August at the age of 96.

Augusta was the last surviving sibling of the 16 children in the Wilhelmine and Reinhold Boehlke Sr. family, early pioneers of the Endiang area.

Augusta and her husband Bill Burt farmed west of Scapa for many years before retiring to Creston, where Bill still lives.

Many witnessed the Blue Moon on Friday — two full moons within the same month. The next Blue Moon won’t occur until 2015.

Congratulations to Jordanna Christie and Jesse Bosma on their recent engagement.

Get-well wishes go out to Ruth Fowler, who had the misfortune of falling and breaking her leg, and to Cliff Donald, who is in a Calgary hospital. We hope you are both on the mend soon.

Carol Stulberg attended the funeral for cousin Esther Morlock on Friday in Hanna. Esther was 86.

Congratulations to Mike and Amy Roberts on the birth of their son, Frederick Edward, on Aug. 29 at the Stettler hospital.

Fred weighed eight pounds and 12 ounces and has a big sister, Bella.

Congratulations also to grandparents Doug and Lori Roberts and great-grandma Doris Roberts.

Congratulations to first-time parents Taylor and Kristin Coates on the birth of their daughter, Aubree Adelle, at the Stettler hospital on Aug. 30.

Aubree weighed in at seven pounds and 14 ounces.

Congratulations also to the local grandparents, Dave and Lynne Nixon, great-grandparents Dave and Betty Nixon and Tick Walker, and great-great-grandma Barbara Schilling.

Hunting season for ducks and geese opened on the weekend. The Lloyd Hausher family and friends were camped at the Tucker homestead for the long weekend to get in some hunting.

We welcome George (Ozzy) Osman and his friend Jayne from Wainwright to the community. Ozzy and Jayne have purchased the mobile home formerly owned by Dave and Betty Nixon in Byemoor. Ozzy is an autobody mechanic.

Thought for the day: The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he is really in trouble.
