The Grade 9 Farewell for the students of the Byemoor School was held on Thursday, June 8. After spending 10 years in Byemoor from Kindergarten to Grade 9, Gage Hutton, Hunter Maginn and Rhett Walker will be moving on to high school.

Seniors’ Week was celebrated with a coffee social at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre on the afternoon of Thursday, June 8. County of Stettler supplied a fruit tray and area councillor and his wife, Les and Rosemary Stulberg, provided Timbits for the group attending. Hats go off to all our seniors for their many contributions to our community.

Get well wishes are sent to Rod Grams who spent more than two weeks in the Drumheller hospital. We hope you are on the mend and feeling better now, Rod.

Get well wishes are also sent to Bob Green who sustained a fractured hip. Bob had a hip replacement in the Red Deer hospital and recuperated in the Stettler hospital. We wish you a speedy recovery, Bob.

We extend sympathy to Tyson, Kary Lyn, Jace and Boden Keith on the passing of Kary Lyn’s grandfather Heinz Boden of Camrose on June 1 at the age of 89 years.

Congratulations to Byemoor’s Jenn Bunney on winning the ladies barrel racing at the Stettler Steel Wheels Stampede on the weekend. Way to go, Jenn.

Shannon Knowles and her grandson Nash Dettmer enjoyed a trip to Victoria, B.C. to visit the Byatt family where Nash got to take in a fishing excursion.

Tyson and Kary Lyn Keith, along with friends from Mirror, traveled to Seattle, Wash. to take in a couple Toronto Blue Jays games and enjoy the sights.

Byemoor School’s Spring Concert and Kindergarten Graduation are coming up on Friday, June 16 at 1:30 p.m. at the school gym. The program features music, dance, poetry and art from the students.

Also, a farewell is planned for Principal Mr. Corey van Zandbergen who is leaving Byemoor School after 15 years.

There will also be an opportunity to meet and welcome Mrs. Rietmann’s new baby, Juliet.

For those wondering why there was no Byemoor-Endiang news last week, we were away in Ontario for 12 days.

Rosemary, I and our son Travis enjoyed visiting Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Toronto. In Toronto a highlight was taking in two Blue Jays games and hearing from friends and family back home that we were on TV in a crowd shot.

We also visited the CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, Casa Loma castle, Union Station and did the City and Harbour Tours. Toronto is a busy place.

Rosemary and I then headed to Ottawa where I attended the Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference. Once that was done we toured the Parliament buildings, sat in on Question Period and visited the Royal Canadian Mint, the National Art Gallery of Canada and the National War Memorial, took a boat down the Rideau Canal and toured the historic city. It was a great experience being in our nation’s capital on Canada’s 150th birthday year.
