Kids’ carnival in cards for the Byemoor Fair

The heat wave and haying have dominated local conversations of late.

The heat wave and haying have dominated local conversations of late.

Saturday night, the district received more than an inch of rain to cool things down and give the crops a much needed drink, but that was not conducive to good haying.

Showers on Sunday added more to the rain gauge.

Mark your calendars for the Byemoor Fair from Aug. 17 to 19.

There will not be a bench show this year, but the kids’ carnival on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. at the arena will be expanded with mutton bustin’, bounce house, dunk tank, face painting, obstacle course, cow milking, mini golf, money pit, temporary tattoos, boxing, jousting and more.

The 32-team slo-pitch tournament, parade, fireworks, pancake breakfast, roast beef supper and dance are some of the other activities rounding out the fair weekend.

Keep in mind Ken and Eleanor Schultz’s 30th annual pancake breakfast and camp-out coming up this weekend. Fireworks are on Saturday night with the pancake breakfast, Frisbee golf and a potluck meal on Sunday.

The ninth annual “Great Endiang Balloon Race” will also be launched on Sunday. The Schultzes extend an invitation to all to attend.

Congratulations to a former Endiang resident, Fern Engel, who recently celebrated her 90th birthday. Fern and Louie now reside at a care facility in Coronation. Best wishes for many more happy birthdays, Fern.

Sympathy is extended to Patsy Sorensen and her family on the passing of her mother, Tillie Schilling, at age 92.

The Schellenbergs, Rod and Dwayne, have been busy taking their bucking stock to various rodeos and stampedes across Western Canada, including the Calgary Stampede, where their bulls performed well.

Many from our district took in some of the Calgary Stampede, celebrating 100 years since the first stampede was started.

A bridal shower for Jaymie Wasdal, bride-elect of Travis Clouston, is scheduled for July 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Byemoor Hall. Women are asked to please bring lunch.

Nikki Paulsen was the guest of honour at a bridal shower held Thursday evening at the Endiang Hall. In lieu of thank-you cards, Nikki will be making a donation to the Endiang Cemetery.

Nikki and Kevin Pivert will be married July 28 at Lacombe.

A bridal shower for Lindsay Jennings was held Saturday afternoon at the Byemoor Hotel. Lindsay and Warren Jones will be married on Aug. 10 in Nova Scotia.

Humour for the day: Did you hear about the thief who stole a calendar — he got 12 months.
