Floor curlers charge on in Byemoor

The district experienced several foggy days of late, creating some picturesque hoar frost on the trees and fences.

The local floor curlers were off to Stettler last Monday for their funspiel. Representing Endmoor were Jim and Shirley Bates, Joe Knowles, Ben Kobi, Joan Morrison, Ken and Eleanor Schultz and Carol Stulberg. They enjoyed the Stettler hospitality and all came home with a prize.

Dustin Wasdal returned home last week following a three-month stay in Australia. Good to have you home, Dusty.

About 85 seniors who are residents or former residents of the Endiang – Byemoor community braved the extreme fog Dec. 2 to attend the Endmoor Drop-In Centre’s annual Seniors’ Christmas Dinner at the Byemoor hall. Following the delicious catered meal, the seniors enjoyed the entertainment of the Byemoor kindergarten to Grade 3 classes directed by Mrs. Keith and also the Stettler Senior Singers. Hats off to the Endmoor Drop-In Centre for once again hosting this dinner for the area seniors.

The floor curling club held their Christmas party at the Endiang hall on Sunday. All sat down to a turkey and ham dinner followed by an enjoyable afternoon of floor curling and visiting. Everyone received a gift and the event included both present and past members of the club.

Congratulations to Jack Grams, who celebrated his 80th birthday on Sunday with a family gathering at the restaurant in Endiang. Except for about 10 years, Jack has lived his entire life in the Endiang community. We extend best wishes for many more happy birthdays to Jack.

Kirk and Twila Buchwitz, Jesse Hebert, Brittiany Keith, Tyson Keith and Kary Swedberg enjoyed a trip to Las Vegas. Brittiany was celebrating her 21st birthday as well.

St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Byemoor will be holding their Christmas Carol service at 1 p.m. Dec. 12 with all most welcome to attend.

A Christmas candle-light service will be held Dec. 23 at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and is open to all.

Christmas is in the air, a time of year that we look forward to receiving Christmas cards and packages in the mail.

When mailing yours this year, be sure to support the local post offices to ensure they stay open.
