It’s time to give thanks … for the weather

As the calendar page flips to October, we bid farewell to a September that was like a bonus month of summer.

As the calendar page flips to October, we bid farewell to a September that was like a bonus month of summer.

We can’t recall ever getting to October and not having a killing frost.

Marlene Wallace and her daughter and son-in-law, Shawna and Darren Benson, along with Lynn Gutsche and her daughter Mandy Gutsche, have returned from a trip to P.E.I.

Shawna was the official photographer for a friend’s wedding. All enjoyed the sights and food of the Maritime experience.

The Byemoor 4-H Drama Club is reorganizing for the fall and has a meeting scheduled for Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Endmoor arena. New members are welcome and Cleaver kids, aged six to eight, will also be accepted.

For further information, or if anyone is unable to attend but still would like to join, contact Anita Mappin at 403-579-2395.

The Endiang Centennial Committee held a meeting last Tuesday at the hall to wrap up a few remaining items of business.

It was decided to transfer the surplus funds from the centennial celebration to the Endiang Board of Trade and the Endiang Community Society.

The centennial committee received an invitation from the Webber Academy in Calgary to attend the grand opening of their performing arts centre on Oct. 17. The academy’s founder, Neil Webber, was a former Endiang resident who enjoyed coming “home” for the centennial celebration.

Congratulations to Bud and Krystal Stoutenberg on the birth of their son, Jack Andy Stoutenberg, on Sept. 25 in Camrose. Jack weighed seven pounds and three ounces.

Congratulations also to the grandparents, Larry and Lorene Stulberg and Rob and Sherry Stoutenberg, and great-grandparents Carol Stulberg, Gary and Marg Cousins and Cherrone Ziemmer.

Oct. 17 will be the last Wednesday the local landfill transfer station will be open. After that date, winter hours will be in effect and the site will only be open on Saturday.

We extend sympathy to Rod and Lynnette Schellenberg and family on the passing of Rod’s uncle, Henry Schellenberg. The Schellenbergs attended the funeral in Manitoba.

Keep in mind a couple of upcoming bridal showers, one for Chelsea Walker, bride-elect of Alan Pero, at the Byemoor hall on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m., and the other for Melitta Walgenbach, future bride of Chad Sorensen, on Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m., at the Endiang hall. Lunch is requested for both showers.

Several folks from our district took in the Hanna Pro Rodeo on the weekend. It was the last chance for many cowboys to qualify for the Canadian finals.

We would like to wish all the readers of this column a Happy Thanksgiving. We enjoy many bounties in this country and have much to be thankful for.

Little-known fact — Bamboo plants can grow as much as 36 inches in a single day.
