Seniors’ dinner enjoyed by many

The district has been in the deep-freeze as of late, with temperatures dipping down to nearly minus 40 degrees. There was no school last Tuesday and again on Monday as the wind chill factor made it just too frigid.

The seniors’ dinner hosted by the Endmoor Drop-In Centre on Thursday at the Byemoor hall was attended by about 85 guests, all present or former residents of the Endiang-Byemoor community. All enjoyed the noon meal of a traditional turkey dinner followed by entertainment by the kindergarten and grades one – three classes of the Byemoor School and also by the Stettler Senior Singers, a group of 17 singers. Everyone enjoyed the day and even the weather co-operated.
