We extend sympathy to Rod and Lynnette Schellenberg and family on the passing of Lynnette’s mother Joyce McCaskill. Joyce passed away on March 11 in Gladstone, Manitoba at the age of 82 years. Several local folks had the privilege of meeting Joyce on her many visits to Endiang over the years. Our thoughts are with the Schellenberg family in their time of loss of this fine lady.

March has been a busy month for the Byemoor School students. On March 1, the Grade 4-6 class joined Botha School for a visit to the Legislature in Edmonton.

It was Bob the Builder Day for the kindergarten class on March 4 at the arena. They completed building projects with their dads.

A Heritage Fair was held at the school on March 9 with Grade 4-9 students showcasing their projects regarding Canadian heritage.

Students enjoyed a few extra days off from school, with the teachers’ convention held on March 10-11.

Entertainment at the Byemoor Hotel on the weekend was a country rock band, the Armand Brothers, from Calgary.

The young Endmoor hockey players have had a busy schedule of play-off games. Even though they played some excellent games, some teams have had their play-off hopes dashed with elimination.

The Peewee Thunder team lost against Marwayne, Hanna and Bentley in provincial play-offs.

The bantam Outlaws lost their third game against the 3C’s (Castor, Coronation, Consort) so they are also done for the season.

The atom Swordsmen won the league play-offs against Stettler and now face Coronation in the final.

The Endmoor Vipers girls’ team won their first round against Rocky Mountain House and are now in second round play-offs with Stettler.

Congratulations to all the players for a season well-played. Good luck to the Swordsmen and Vipers in their next quest.

Thought for the day — “Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but doesn’t get you anywhere.”
