BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The thoughts and prayers of the Endmoor community are with the people of Fort McMurray and all those affected by the devastating wildfires.
On Saturday evening, the Byemoor Hotel donated two dollars from every pizza sold to the Fort McMurray fund — with 64 pizzas sold that equaled $128. This was matched by Kris Grams, thus totaling $256. The donations will be made through the TD Bank who also matches donations, resulting in $512 for the cause. This is just one of the ways folks in our community are helping out.
Congratulations to the Byemoor Xtreme ladies’ hockey team on its phenomenal success at the hockey tournament in Kelowna, B.C. that ended this weekend. The team went undefeated throughout the tournament, winning the A final with a score of 2-1. Way to go, ladies!
More than 100 people enjoyed the delicious Mother’s Day pancake breakfast in Endiang on Sunday. The three door prizes were won by Brittiany Keith, Doreen Nixon and Kim Wasdal. Sponsored by the Endiang Board of Trade, proceeds will go towards beautification of the hamlet.
Many mothers also took in the Garden Tea at the Cattlemunns Ranching Gift Shop south of Endiang and reported a fun time, sporting their finest hats and attire.
Many families celebrated Mother’s Day in their own unique ways, treating the moms on their day. We hope mothers everywhere enjoyed their special day — mothers give so much and expect so little in return.
