Post office reports break-in, robbery


Endiang Enterprise

Endiang Post Office reported a break-in Sunday night and the theft of computer equipment.

The robbery is under investigation.

It was an otherwise celebratory weekend in Endiang.

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church celebrated its centennial Saturday with perfect weather. The church was full and the crowd extended to the tent set up beside the church for the 100th-anniversary service, with an estimated 150 people in attendance.

Rev. Robert Grewe led the service, with former pastor Rev. Brian Patterson giving the sermon. The scripture readings were given by sons of former pastors, with one being read in German as a tribute to the heritage of the church when services were held in German to serve the many German-speaking pioneers who had settled in the area.

The church and cemetery were in immaculate condition for the special occasion. After the service, lunch was served in the tent. That provided an opportunity for much visiting and reminiscing among the former parishioners of the church and their descendants.

Special thanks to the church centennial committee and their helpers for a job well done.

It was a busy weekend for Endmoor residents. Besides the Lutheran church centennial, folks also attended the Botha Centennial celebration and the Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede.
