Saskatoon pie and other goodies stand test of time

The wild saskatoons are producing an abundant yield of plump, juicy berries this year thanks to all the moisture. The purple gems have a unique flavour unlike any other. There is nothing like Saskatoon pie, muffins, tarts or the old standby, fresh saskatoons with cream and sugar.

The Wasdal family have relatives visiting from Norway. Arnt and Lisbeth, along with their children Hanne and Nicholai, are staying with Art and Dot Wasdal. This is their first visit to Canada. Jim and Maureen Wasdal hosted a family gathering at their farm Friday that was attended by several family members.

Lynnette Schellenberg spent just more than two weeks with her parents Glenn and Joyce McCaskill in Manitoba. Lynnette’s dad has been ill and her mother underwent knee surgery. Lynnette travelled with Dwayne Schellenberg, who was taking a load of bucking bulls to the Morris Stampede.

Clint Schellenberg and his children Heather and Clay, along with Will, Crystal, Dakoda, Jack and Alexandria Oickle, went to Manitoba as well to visit their grandparents and Lynnette returned with them Thursday.

Velma (nee Boehlke) Gore, who has been visiting with family members in our district for the past two months, has returned to her home in Westbank, B.C.

Rosemary Stulberg attended the 100th birthday social for family friend Gertie Savage in Stettler on Saturday. Gertie still lives in her own home on her farm near Stettler, where she still tends to her flowers and garden. She is a remarkable woman for her age. MLA Jack Hayden attended to present Gertie with congratulatory messages from the various levels of government, including Queen Elizabeth II.

Some of the local ball players participated in the Castor Legion Senior Slo-pitch Tournament on the weekend.

Keep in mind the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church Centennial service, set for Saturday at 1 p.m. A lunch will be provided following the service. Join in celebrating 100 years of this church’s unique history.

Remember the Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society annual fair is coming up in Byemoor on Aug. 20, with the slo-pitch tournament running all weekend.

Not a lot of news to report this week, the farmers are all in the hay fields in between showers.
