Shiny new hardwood for floor curling ready

Congratulations to Green Farms of Byemoor on being very deserving recipients of the ATB Farm Family Award.

Congratulations to Green Farms of Byemoor, operated today by Dale and Dee Green and Cody and Dara Hallett, on being very deserving recipients of the ATB Farm Family Award. The presentation was made on Wednesday in Edmonton at Farmfair.

Green Farms is a fifth generation family farm continuously operated by the Green family since 1910. Today’s operation is a fine example of modern farming expertise. The family has always been keen supporters of the community.

Attending the ceremony were Bob and Eileen Green, former operators of the farm, Dale and Dee Green, Cody, Dara and Rowan Hallett, Derek Green and Les Stulberg, representing the County of Stettler Agricultural Service Board, who nominated Green Farms for the award.

The hardwood floor in the Endiang Hall has been recently refinished and is looking new and shiny. Floor curling was cancelled on Monday to allow the finish to cure.

We extend sympathy to Kyle, Janelle and Rylan Sorensen and extended family members on the loss of Kyle and Janelle’s baby boy on Nov. 6. Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.

The ice is in at the Byemoor curling rink with the Square Draw beginning on Nov. 16 and running each Monday from 7-9 p.m. Ladies’ curling goes each Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m. All interested curlers are welcome to join in for some winter fun.

Rhonda Munns presents “A Very Prairie Christmas” at the Cattlemunns Ranching Gift Shop on highway 855 south of Endiang. The event began Nov. 1 and runs until Dec. 24. The shop is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Cinni Saturdays go every Saturday until Christmas and features cinnamon rolls, scones, tea and coffee. Ladies’ Night groups can book private shopping by appointment.

Sounds like an excellent way to get the jump on Christmas shopping. Call Rhonda at 403-854-4745 (store), 403-665-2431 (home) or 403-854-1137 (cell) for further information.

In school news — Byemoor School students and staff enjoyed a three-day break last week on Nov. 11-13.

Operation Christmas Child goes at the school on Nov. 19 from 2:10 – 3 p.m. when shoe boxes will be packed for needy children around the world. Those in the community wishing to donate a packed box, items for a box or $7 per box for shipping costs are welcome to do so.

The Book Fair is set for Nov. 24 from 1–3 p.m. at the school. Everyone is welcome — it’s a great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping.

Thought for the day — “A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not on the branch, but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself.”
