At the Tuesday evening crib match at the Endmoor Drop-in Centre, it was the men’s turn to show them how it’s done. Top score went to Art Wasdal while Bob Smyth was second. Next crib meet is Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Darcy Tucker of Toronto was a recent visitor with his family here. While he was home, the former NHL player got a chance to help with weaning calves and do some hunting with his brother, Dwight.

Local folks have been busy taking in events like Agri-trade, the farm show in Red Deer and the Canadian Rodeo Finals in Edmonton while others have been trying their luck at deer hunting.

A potluck supper is planned on Nov. 16 at 5:30 p.m. at the Scapa Hall to bid farewell to Jan and Harley Annette. All are welcome to attend, just bring your favourite dish to the supper. The Annettes have sold their acreage (the former Burt place) to a couple from Calgary and are moving to Fleet. Those wishing to contribute to a community farewell gift may call Thelma Bossert at 403-854-2393.

The seniors’ turkey dinner sponsored by the Endmoor Drop-in Society is set for Dec. 4 at noon at the Byemoor hall. A show follows at 1 p.m. featuring the talent of renowned cowboy poet, B.J. Smith. All present and former Endiang and Byemoor seniors are invited to attend. Reservations must be made to confirm caterer. Please call Eleanor Schultz at 403-579-2344 or Deanna Johnson at 403- 579-2331 by Nov. 20.

Santa Claus Day in Byemoor is approaching on Dec. 6. Those wishing to book tables for the Bake Sale and Craft Show are reminded to call Twila Buchwitz at 403-579-3755.

The Calgary Fiddlers Association is bringing its Christmas Concert to the Endiang Hall on Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 with 12 and younger free and are available at the restaurant in Endiang or at the store in Byemoor. The young fiddlers are amazingly talented 14-18 year-olds who have performed locally and internationally. This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy exceptional talent without a lot of travel. For more information call B.J. Smith at 403-317-4918.

New highway directional signs have been placed on highway 855 south of Endiang pointing the way to the historic St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. The signs look exceptionally nice.

The Byemoor School observed an early Remembrance Day service on Nov. 3 with members of the Stettler branch of the Royal Canadian Legion attending.

Other events upcoming at the school include Operation Christmas Child. Students will be packing show boxes at the school gym on Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. with everyone welcome. Donated items such as school supplies, toys, gifts and hygiene items are welcome as well as donations of $7 per box for shipping.

The school’s Book Fair goes on Nov. 25 from 1:30- 3:00 p.m.

The nation observes Remembrance Day on Tuesday, giving us all a time to pause, reflect and appreciate the courage and sacrifices Canada’s armed forces have given so we may all enjoy the freedoms we do.

Thought for the day — “If you want to travel fast, travel alone, if you want to travel far, travel together.”
