Strong winds result in power disruptions across Endmoor

The strong wind storm accompanied by rain that hit the district on Wednesday resulted in downed trees and power outages.

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The strong wind storm accompanied by rain that hit the district on Wednesday resulted in downed trees and power outages that carried on from Wednesday evening into Thursday. A person is pretty helpless without electricity these days. Kudos goes to the power service people who worked day and night to restore the power.

Now folks have the task of picking up branches and leaves in their yards and retrieving anything that was loose from wherever they can find it.

Congratulations to the Byemoor 4-H Beef Club members on their successful achievement day at the Stettler District Show and Sale on May 22 to 23.

Addison Charbonneau of the Byemoor club showed the Reserve Grand Champion steer of the show. The Byemoor club also exhibited the Grand Champion Pen of Five steers.

Bailey Musgrove won Best Kept Intermediate Records. Trey Nichols was named Byemoor’s Most Dedicated member.

The members also enjoyed strong prices at the sale on Tuesday evening.

Way to go 4-Hers on a great show. You carried on the 4-H tradition very well on the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Alberta.

Congratulations to the graduating class of William E. Hay School in Stettler who celebrated the completion of 12 years of hard work on Saturday, May 27 at the Stettler Recreation Centre.

Bill Hawkins from Byemoor was among the graduates, as was former Byemoor student Cooper Smyth. Good luck in all your future endeavours, Bill and Cooper.

Other graduates with a connection to Byemoor and Endiang include, Kallie Stewart, a long-time member of the Byemoor 4-H Beef club and Trey Nichols a recent member of the club.

Also, Drew Bignell, Art and Dot Wasdal’s granddaughter; Danae Chostner, Jim and Lee Carrothers’ granddaughter and Dylan Woelk, grandson of Deb Woelk and the late Bruce Woelk were among the graduates.

Congratulations to all the graduates of 2017; may your dreams all come true.

This esteemed organization has seen many of its members go far in life. We wish you best of luck with your aspirations, Bill.

Please note, there will not be a news column from Byemoor and Endiang next week.

Humour for the day “The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.”
