Large number of dragonflies puzzles residents


Endiang Enterprise

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church is celebrating the centennial of the church on Aug. 13 with a special service at 1 p.m. A picnic lunch will be served following the service. Everyone is most welcome to join in celebrating 100 years of the unique history of this historic church.

Word was received of the recent passing of Herb Keibel at the age of 81 years in Victoria, B.C. Herb was in Endiang last summer for the Endiang Centennial and in fact, he came a week or so before the celebration and camped in the hamlet and visited among his friends from years ago. He was the eldest son of Walter and Susanna Keibel and spent his early years in Endiang. Our sympathies are extended to the Keibel family.

Tyson Keith has moved a manufactured home onto the farm yard of Mike Keith in preparation for his upcoming fall wedding.

Congratulations to Bruce and Kate Woelk on the arrival of their newest grandchild. Ray and Charlene (nee Woelk) Stirling are the proud parents of a daughter, Jayda Joy, born on July 28 and weighing 9 lbs. and 14 oz. Jayda has a big brother at home.

There have been an unusually large number of dragonflies around lately. Seems everywhere you go there are hundreds of them flying about; just curious to know if other areas also have them? They should hopefully keep the mosquitoes in check.

Many local country music fans took in the Big Valley Jamboree at Camrose on the long weekend while some folks took in the Centennial celebration at Coronation.

We hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, whatever your plans were.

Congratulations to Shenine Blackman and Scott Roach, who were married on Saturday with their wedding dance held at the Byemoor hall. We wish this young couple all the best in their married life.

With recent showers haying in the district continues at a snail’s pace. Hopefully, August will result in more productive weather.
