Lots of Mother’s Day activities planned

Mother's Day is fast approaching and there are a couple events to keep in mind at Endiang.

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — Mother’s Day is fast approaching and there are a couple events to keep in mind at Endiang.

Rhonda Munns is opening her Cattlemunns Ranching Gift Shop on the Mother’s Day weekend, May 6-8. Bring mom for the Prairie Garden Tea, on any of the three days, and wear your fancy hats, as there are special prizes for that.

In addition to the tea, Checkel Greenhouses will have bedding-out plants and will answer your gardening questions.

It’s also an opportunity to shop for home and garden décor, home accents, Muck boots and gift items.

Call Rhonda at 403-665-2431 or 403-854-1137 for more information and reservations or like on Facebook. Rhonda’s shop is located on highway 855 about 15 km south of Endiang.

On Sunday, May 8, a Mother’s Day pancake breakfast will be held at the Endiang Hall from 9 a.m. until noon. Mothers will have a chance to win a door prize. Be sure to treat mom on her special day.

Proceeds from the pancake breakfast will assist the board of trade in beautifying the hamlet with flowers.

The Byemoor fire department holds regular practices every Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Byemoor fire hall. New volunteers are always welcome and applications are available at the Byemoor Store.

Two teams of floor curlers from the Endmoor club participated in the bonspiel at The Hub in Stettler on Wednesday. Those joining in the fun included Ernie Angel, Cliff Donald, Mickey Tucker and Dave Sisley as well as Doug Harrold, Carol Stulberg, Eva Nielsen and Joan Morrison.

We extend sympathy to the family of Agnes Sorensen, who passed away on April 22 in Stettler at the age of 93 years. Agnes spent most of her life in the Endiang community, until retiring to Stettler a few years ago. She was the daughter of Endiang pioneers Sandy and Janet Campbell. Agnes and her late husband Andy Sorensen raised their family on a farm north of Endiang.

Agnes will be remembered for her remarkable memory, keen sense of humour and being a friend to many.

Our thoughts are with her children, Janet (Bob) Campbell, Jim (Leanne) Sorensen and their families and her sister Mickey Pearn and family in their time of loss.

A funeral for Agnes has been set for Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Endiang Hall.

Dee Green, along with her sister Cheryl Taylor of Leduc, enjoyed a week-long visit with their brothers David and Jef Stock in Vancouver, B.C. They were blessed with beautiful weather and surrounded with trees, flowers and shrubs in full bloom.

Keep in mind the bridal shower for Samantha Huskinson, future bride of Tyler Stulberg, on Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m. at the Endiang Hall. Ladies of the community are asked to please bring lunch.

With Mother’s Day coming up, we thought it fitting to share some mother-wisdom —

Mother taught me about ANTICIPATION … “Just wait until your father gets home!”

Mother taught me LOGIC … “If you fall off that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me.”

Mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE … “If you don’t stop crossing your eyes, they are going to freeze that way.”

Mother taught me HUMOUR … “When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don’t come running to me.”
