Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society Fair to be held on Aug. 20


Endiang Enterprise

We extend sympathy to the family of Margaret (nee Hogg) Groat on her passing on July 14 at the age of 81 years. Margaret was a long-time resident of our community before retiring to Hanna. Margaret was well known as a rural correspondent for the Hanna Herald and Stettler Independent as she wrote the Endiang news column for 41 years.

She was an active volunteer in community organizations and rarely missed a community function. Margaret managed to overcome the adversities life handed out and was a survivor. Our thoughts are with her family in their sad loss. The funeral and burial will take place at Endiang on Wednesday.

Get well wishes go out to Bruce Woelk who is back in Calgary taking treatments at the Tom Baker Cancer Clinic. We hope you are back on the road to recovery soon Bruce.

Get well wishes also go to Florence Tucker who had a stay in the Hanna hospital and Walter Schuler in the Stettler hospital.

We send sympathy to the Green and Potter families on the passing of Diane (nee Green) Potter on July 13 at 59 years of age.

Diane was raised at Byemoor, the eldest of Bob and Eileen Green’s three children. Diane fought a long, courageous and valiant battle against cancer. She will always be remembered for her vibrant personality and her zest for life.

Her funeral was held in Red Deer on Monday. Our thoughts are with her family as they cope with her loss.

Danny and Joan Grover have moved to an acreage in the Big Valley area. We wish them well in their new location.

With the 35th annual Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society Fair coming up next month in Byemoor on Aug. 20 it’s not too early to be thinking of parade entries. This year the theme of the fair is “Reduce –

Reuse – Recycle” so it might be fun to incorporate the theme into your entries. Parade marshal this year is Dave Nixon Jr. and he can be reached at 403-579-2479 for more information.

A new addition to the fair this year is a Kids Carnival to be held at the arena from 1 – 4 p.m. on Aug. 20 with games, activities and prizes for the children. The bench show goes as usual at the curling rink. General fair inquiries may be directed to Judy Buchwitz at 403-579-2588.

Recent visitors with Wes and Karen Gutsche were Karen’s mother Joan and George Bowes from B.C.

Congratulations to Cody Rausch and Jaymi Sawula who were married in Castor on Saturday. Cody and Jaymi will be residing on the Rausch ranch located between Endiang and Halkirk. We wish the newlyweds all the best as they start their married life together.

Keep in mind the bridal shower for Ashley Hayden bride-elect of Mike Oman to be held at the Byemoor hall on July 23 at 2 p.m. Ladies are asked to please bring lunch.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz’s campout weekend goes July 22-24 with folks welcome to attend any or all of the activities. Fireworks are Saturday night with the pancake breakfast, Frisbee golf and balloon launch on Sunday.

The parents of Shenine Blackman and Scott Roach are happy to announce the marriage of their children on July 30 and that there will be an open wedding dance at the Byemoor hall at 9 p.m. with all welcome.

Herb and Helen Gutsche have a new great-grandchild; congratulations to Melissa and Steve Hopkins on the early arrival of their second child, a daughter Vanessa Hazel born on July 14. Vanessa was six weeks early and weighed 5 lbs. 6 oz. Proud grandparents are Edwin and Nola Gutsche.
