Lots of fishing trips over the past week

Farmers in the district are busy with haying operations in full swing.

Farmers in the district are busy with haying operations in full swing. The hot, dry weather is ideal for curing the hay but the grain crops and pastures are in desperate need of a rain. Most reports are that hay yields are down from the past few years.

Kate Woelk enjoyed a 10-day visit from her aunt and uncle, Coral and Allan Grimwood, from Dryden, Ont.

Vern Boehlke from Westbank, B.C. was in Castor for a wedding. While in the area, he visited some of his Endiang relatives, including his sister Velma Gore, who has been spending a few months this summer visiting with relatives here.

Several folks from the district were away on fishing trips last week. Rob, Rhonda and Hunter Maginn travelled to their cabin at Fishing Lake, Sask. to enjoy some fishing fun.

Bob and Janet Campbell, Brian and Theresa Christie, along with Brian’s sister and her husband Shelly and Keith Mattson of Redcliff, had an enjoyable fishing trip to Cow Lake near Rocky Mountain House.

Miles and Lynne Jones returned home Sunday from a week-long fishing excursion with friends at Moose Lake, in the Bonnyville area of northeastern Alberta.

Rod and Debbie Grams enjoyed camping and fishing at the Blood Indian Creek Reservoir south of Youngstown and reported a successful catch.

Some of those who weren’t in the hay field or away fishing took in some of the Calgary Stampede. Among those attending were Endiang’s Ken and Eleanor Schultz, who have been long-time supporters of the stampede. Ken has attended 72 stampedes at Calgary and Eleanor attended about 10 less. Not sure if that is a record, but it is an extraordinary amount of stampedes to attend.

Heather Keith was honoured with a bridal shower at the Byemoor hall on Saturday evening. She was showered with many beautiful gifts. Heather and Dustin Derrick will be married on August 23.

Petrussa Farms is celebrating 100 years as a family farm on July 26. The Petrussa and Jones families extend an invitation to all to join them in marking the farm’s centennial. Plaque presentations are at 2 p.m. followed by a supper at 5 p.m. and a dance and fireworks will cap off the evening. The festivities will be held at the Petrussa homestead southwest of Byemoor where Adam and Paige Jones live today. Peter Petrussa homesteaded the property in 1914 and he and his wife Emilia raised seven children there. Their son Ernie Petrussa owns the land today.
