Endiang Enterprise

The students of the Byemoor School enjoyed a year-end trip to the Science Centre in Edmonton last week. School doors closed Tuesday for the much anticipated summer holidays. Bus driver Deanna Johnson has retired after 15 years of driving the school bus. We hope you enjoy your retirement Deanna.

A large crowd of participants and spectators enjoyed the eighth annual Wade Buchwitz Memorial Gymkhana in Endiang on Canada Day with perfect weather. Following the award presentations and wiener roast the evening concluded with a spectacular set of fi reworks that could be seen for miles around.
