Seniors’ Christmas dinner next week in Byemoor

Mother Nature turned our nice fall weather into winter in a hurry. The district received a substantial amount of snow with frigid temperatures.

We bid farewell to Marlene Mappin, who after living for several years on the former Reinhold Boehlke place, has moved to Stettler where she is employed. We wish you well in your new location, Marlene.

Get well wishes go out to Lois Ballinger, who is in the Hanna hospital. Hope you are well soon, Lois.

Skip and Anita Mappin were in Toronto at the beginning of the month for the National 4-H Conference. Anita is the Alberta representative.

Mark and Julie Jones along with friends Greg and Deb Herzog of Delia enjoyed a trip to Montana recently.

Congratulations to first- time grandparents Dave and Lynne Nixon. Gregg and Tara Nixon had a son, Bennett David, in Calgary Nov. 18.

Great-grandparents are Gordon and Yvonne Walker and Dave and Betty Nixon, and great-great grandma Barbara Schilling.

Congratulations to Nicole Keith and T. J. Devaleriola, who were married Saturday in Delia. Nicole is the eldest daughter of Pat and Sandra Keith. A large number of local folks attended the wedding and dance. The newlyweds will be residing in their new home in Delia. We wish this fine young couple all the best as they begin their married life together.

The Endmoor Drop-in Centre is putting on their annual seniors’ Christmas dinner at noon on Dec. 2 at the Byemoor Hall. Seniors (65 and older) along with their spouses who are past or present residents of the Endiang – Byemoor area are invited to this complementary meal.

A pedicurist will be coming to the Endmoor Drop-in Centre every five – six weeks with the next scheduled date being Dec. 16. If you wish to receive a pedicure (no age restriction) call Eleanor Schultz at 403-579-2344.
