Exchange students go back to Ottawa

.

Endiang Enterprise

The 12 exchange students along with two chaperones from the Ottawa – Gatineau area returned home Monday following a week stay with families in the Endiang – Byemoor district. They had a busy week taking in many Alberta sights including the Royal Tyrrell Museum and Atlas Coal Mine in Drumheller, Fort Edmonton Park, West Edmonton Mall and the Legislature Building where they met MLA and Minister of Agriculture Jack Hayden all in Edmonton, the Byemoor Hutterite Colony, Banff and Lake Louise. The host families entertained on the weekend with various activities of their choice before the visiting students were bid farewell. Many lasting friendships were made with the students from eastern Canada and it was a valuable learning experience for all involved.

Congratulations to an Endiang lad, Kiefer Grover, on being named Team Roping Season Leader for District Two at the Alberta High School Rodeo finals. Kiefer is sporting a big, shiny buckle for his efforts. Way to go Kiefer and keep up the good work.

Endiang was the destination for the Wildrose Explorers RV Club’s annual campout weekend and many campers from various points in Alberta participated. The group has returned each year for a number of years. It seems they enjoy the quiet space Endiang has to offer.

Congratulations to Happy and Bev Davis who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a social at the Byemoor Community Centre on Saturday evening. They were joined by many friends, neighbours and family. We wish this fine couple many more happy years.
