A correction to last week’s news — the last Wednesday of operation at the landfill transfer station is actually today, Oct. 10. After that date, winter hours will resume, with the landfill only open on Saturday. Sorry about the confusion.

The Byemoor community’s annual roast-beef supper is scheduled for Oct. 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Byemoor hall. It’s a good opportunity to get out and enjoy some good home-cooking.

Logan Gutsche has been busy renovating the former farm home of his grandparents, Art and Lucy Gutsche.

Nolan and DeAnna Groundwater are also in the process of renovating the home of Nolan’s grandfather, Ross Groundwater, on the farm.

When the renovations are completed, it will be nice to have more young people living in our community.

The first crib night of the fall was held at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre on Tuesday.

Sandy Muir from Armstrong, B.C., was out for his annual hunting trip and, as usual, brought his local friends an assortment of tasty B.C. fruit — apples, pears and plums.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz had a busy long weekend at their farm. They had about 30 guests over the three days for wood-cutting, visiting and feasting.

Son-in-law David Mohl brought eight trailer loads of fallen trees from the Hanna windstorm out to be cut and split for the winter’s wood supply.

Keep in mind the bridal shower for Melitta Walgenbach, bride-to-be of Chad Sorensen, on Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Endiang Hall. Please bring lunch.
