Entire Byemoor School takes part in concert Dec. 21

Lois Ballinger, a former Endiang resident, celebrates 91st birthday

Byemoor School Christmas Concert delighted a full house crowd at the Byemoor Community Hall on Thursday evening. MC duties were capably handled by Ryder Buchwitz and Tanner Taziar.

The Kindergarten class, dressed as four gingerbread men, gave a welcome performance. The playschool group followed up with a cute welcome number of their own.The theme play of the concert, “A Pirate Christmas” included all the Grade 1-9 classes and was a holiday musical.

Grade 2 student Joslyn Stimson entertained with a piano selection.The entire school from kindergarten to Grade 9 presented the Nativity, which is a program-ending tradition for the Byemoor School Concert.

Everyone sang “Here Comes Santa Claus” and luckily Santa Claus took time out of his busy schedule to visit Byemoor, giving candy bags to all the young children. Lunch, refreshments and visiting concluded a superb evening. It wouldn’t seem like Christmas without the school concert.

We extend birthday wishes to Lois Ballinger, a former Endiang resident now residing at Points West Living in Stettler, on her 91st birthday which she celebrated on Dec. 20. Congratulations on this special milestone, Lois and best wishes for many more from your Endmoor friends.

Warren Jones just returned from Nova Scotia, bringing his daughter Charleen home for the Christmas holidays.

Many folks around the district have wonderful displays of Christmas lights, but none more spectacular than Betty Campbell’s on the edge of Byemoor.

Betty devotes many weeks, perhaps even months, preparing her festive display which reaches right into Byemoor. Her fantastic display of lights is well worth the trip to see.

Adam and Paige Jones and family have Paige’s parents David and Margie Eager visiting from Nova Scotia.

Friends of Vicki Ballinger will be absolutely thrilled to hear she is home from the hospital after 14 months. With therapy she has made wonderful progress and it is so great to see her walking again. It is an awesome accomplishment Vicki, congratulations on your perseverance.

Happy Birthday wishes are sent to Evelyn Walker on the celebration of her 80th birthday. Congratulations on your special milestone, Evelyn and best wishes for many more.

It was the guys turn to shine at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre crib meet on Dec. 21. Doug Harrold posted the top score while Ken Schultz pegged his way to second place.

This time of year folks are so busy with Christmas and family events. We wish everyone safe travels this holiday season.

We would also like to wish the editor and staff and all the readers of our column a very Happy New Year.

We hope 2018 brings good health and happiness to all.
