Endiang Enterprise

Congratulations to Paul DeMaere, 15-yearold son of Tim and Shelly (nee Paulsen) DeMaere of Red Deer and grandson of Winnie Paulsen of Endiang, who is a competitive swimmer. He recently qualified for the Canadian Championships to be held in Montreal from July 27 – 31. Good luck to Paul who will be competing in the 100 metre breaststroke.

Congratulations to Kent Kobi and Tamlin Reed who were married on Saturday in the farm yard of the groom’s parents Russ and Linda Kobi near Byemoor. Many friends and family joined in the wedding celebrations all held at the Kobi farm. The newlyweds will be residing in Sydney, Australia. We wish Kent and Tam all the best as they start their married life together.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz are once again hosting their annual pancake breakfast and campout weekend at their farm July 22 – 24. This year marks the 29th annual event. Fireworks will be held on Saturday night, pancake breakfast on Sunday morning followed by Frisbee Golf and a potluck supper. There will also be the 8th annual Great Endiang Balloon Race launch. Ken and Eleanor say everyone is welcome to join in on any or all of the weekend activities.

Some local folks are home from a vacation that toured England, Scotland and Wales. Miles and Lynne Jones, Tom and Bonnie McCrindle, Raymond McCrindle, Doreen and Becky Nixon, Lynne Nixon and her friend Colleen all enjoyed the many sights Great Britain had to offer. As well some were able to look up relatives while there. Miles and Lynne Jones spent an extra week in Wales visiting with relations there.

Cool weather and showers have delayed haying operations in the district to a bit later than normal. It’s terrible when the furnace cuts-in in July.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz attended the 50th wedding anniversary celebration for LeRoy and Jean Peterson held at their daughter and son-in-law Linda and Tex Danielson’s farm in the Hand Hills on Saturday. Of local interest Jean is the daughter of the late John and Martha (nee Ziemmer) Mohl.

Special birthday wishes go out to John Kisser, a former Endiang resident, who will be celebrating his 80th birthday on July 19. John was raised where Bruce and Kate Woelk live now.
