Harvest aplenty for deer hunters

After weeks of overcast and foggy weather, it was finally a relief to see the sun, with a beautiful sunny day Sunday.

COLOUR COLLECTION — Mother Nature’s mix of red

After weeks of overcast and foggy weather, it was finally a relief to see the sun, with a beautiful sunny day Sunday. All the fog, however, did help Mother Nature create a masterpiece of frost-covered trees, fences and most other objects. The abundant hoar-frost had trees bending and the power lines sagging. We were fortunate not to lose power with the extra strain the fog put on the frost-coated lines.

Deer-hunting season opened in the area Nov. 1 and many hunters were spotted about the region scouting the fields, in hopes of bagging a deer. We hope the hunters have good luck with their harvest. Judging by the number of deer collisions on the roads, the deer population is plenty high.

The local floor curlers were off to Stettler last Monday for a bonspiel. Endmoor participants included Irene Brooker, Ken and Eleanor Schultz, Carol Stulberg, Bob and Eileen Green, Joe Knowles, Della Jones, Ernie Angel, Jim and Shirley Bates and Joan Morrison.

We’re pleased to report a couple of former residents are home from their hospital stays. Agnes Sorensen is out of the Stettler hospital and back in her residence at Paragon Place, while Ervin Hausher is home in Manor II from the Hanna hospital. Hope you both are on the mend.

Clifton and Mickey Tucker visited Castor on Saturday for the 80th birthday celebration for Joe Neumeier. Clifton and Joe played seniors’ slo-pitch together for several years. The Tuckers and Neumeiers also travelled to Arizona together to spend the winters for many years.

The Clearview School Division motion to consider closing three small schools in the division, including the Byemoor school, is of concern to the community. A well-attended community meeting was held Monday night at the Byemoor hall.

Those past and present Endiang-Byemoor seniors (65-plus) wishing to attend the Endmoor Drop-In Society’s pre-Christmas dinner Nov. 29 are reminded to confirm their attendance by Nov. 21 by calling Eleanor at 403-579-2344 or Mary at 403-579-2282. Vision Country Gospel singers will provide the entertainment.

Little-known fact — Canada declared national beauty contests cancelled as of 1992, claiming they were degrading to women.
