Many from neighbouring areas celebrate Christmas in Endiang

‘Tis the season for Christmas parties and Endiang has been busy with the Our Home Kitchen restaurant hosting three staff parties this week. The Specials Areas staff from Hanna on Tuesday, the Stettler Funeral Home staff on Wednesday and the Byemoor Store staff on Saturday all enjoyed their Christmas get-togethers here.

Many friends and neighbours of Dale and Dee Green gathered at their home Thursday evening for their annual Christmas party and once again enjoyed the Green’s hospitality.

The Byemoor School held their Christmas Concert at the Byemoor hall Thursday evening. The school concert is always a popular event of the holiday season.

We wish Margaret Sacuta well in her new location as she is in the process of moving to Stettler. Byemoor’s loss will definitely be Stettler’s gain.

Lorne and Marlene Wallace are the first to connect to the rural water line running south of Endiang. They are relieved to no longer have to haul their water.

Bruce Woelk was able to be home for four days last week, and now has started another round of treatments in Calgary.

Our district was well represented at the funeral of Alice Keibel in Stettler on Friday.

Jim and Maureen Wasdal hosted an early Christmas for the Hunt family at their home Saturday and on Sunday all gathered at Lee Hunt’s for breakfast. More than 30 family members enjoyed the get-together.

Keep in mind, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church is holding a candlelight service Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. and all are welcome.

Don’t forget, St. Paul’s Anglican Church will be holding their Christmas Eve service Dec. 24 at 3:30 p.m. and it is open to all.

Get well wishes go out to a former Endiang resident, Jerry Woelk, who is a patient in the Hanna hospital.

Ernie and Brenda Ziegler of Hardisty were weekend visitors with Irene Brooker and helped her celebrate her birthday.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish the readers of our column from near and far a wonderful Christmas. May you enjoy the season to the fullest with your family and friends.
