We extend sympathy to the family of Dolly McCrindle who passed away at Consort on Sept. 24. She was 79. Dolly along with her husband Andrew were long-time residents of the Byemoor community, where they raised their three daughters Helen, Cathy and Diane. Dolly was also a teacher at the Byemoor School in past years. She will be long-remembered for her kind and soft-spoken ways. A private family service was held in Byemoor on Monday. Our thoughts are with the McCrindle family in their loss of this fine lady.

We welcome to the community Lindsey Shadlock and Angeline Mappin and their young son Weston. They are living on the former Stephen Mappin farm. Angeline is of course no stranger to the community as she was raised here, the youngest daughter of Stephen and Kathy Mappin. It is great to have another young family in the community.

A number of local folks took in the Hanna Pro-Rodeo on the weekend while others attended Alberta Culture Days in Stettler.
