Byemoor/Endiang News

Several folks from our community enjoyed one or more of the performances of “Shrek —The Musical” in Hanna with the final performance on Saturday evening. The Stage Hanna production featured fantastic local talent delivered with awesome humour. There were many connections to the Endiang — Byemoor area in the cast.

The Endmoor cast connections included Marty Brooker and Terri Simpson; Katie and Jorgie Campbell — Lyle and Shannon Knowles’ daughter and granddaughter; Nadine and Mareena Hein — Gordie and Roxy Gallagher’s daughter and granddaughter; Trina and Quinn Peters — Gary and Dolores Pearson’s daughter and granddaughter; Heather and Grace Scheler — Ron and Marguerite Brown’s daughter and granddaughter and Ally Smyth — former Byemoor student and daughter of Ben and Tania Smyth.

Kudos to the entire cast and production crew on a first-class performance, it was very entertaining and a pleasure to see so much talent in a small town.

Two local floor curling teams participated in the bonspiel in Castor last Monday. The teams included Dave Sisley, Mickey Tucker, Carol Stulberg and Helen Gutsche as well as Herb Gutsche, Carol Sisley, Irene Brooker and Eva Nielsen.

We send birthday greetings to former Endiang resident Nat Buchwitz, who is celebrating his 93rd birthday on Nov. 27.

A livestock nutrition seminar sponsored by Orwig Livestock Supplements is coming up on Nov. 21 at the Endiang Hall. A beef burger supper is being served at 5 p.m. with an information presentation to follow. For more information contact Jim Stimson at 403-579-2440.

Beginning Nov. 29, there will be a change of hours at Ruthie’s Roost café in Endiang. On Saturdays, until the end of the year, the café will be open from 1-3 p.m. Hours for the rest of the week remain unchanged.

The community will be bidding farewell to Kevin and Amanda Andres and their girls Emily and Rowan at the end of the month. The Andres have sold their acreage south of Endiang (the former Eggins’ place) to a couple from Red Deer. They will be moving to their new home at Carbon at the end of the month. We wish the Andres well in their new location.

A note to seniors of Endiang and Byemoor (past and present), be sure to reply by Nov. 20 to Eleanor Schultz at 403-579-2344 or Deanna Johnson at 403-579-2331 if you plan to attend the complimentary senior’s dinner and entertainment in Byemoor on Dec. 4.

Be sure to get your tickets for the Calgary Fiddlers Association’s Christmas Concert at the Endiang Hall on Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. Tickets are only $20 and available at the café in Endiang or the store in Byemoor.

Local hockey action from last weekend included the Big Valley pee wee Thunder team winning 12-1 over Rimbey on Saturday in Byemoor. On Sunday they played to a 7-7 tie in Red Deer.

The Big Valley atom Swordmen suffered a 7-4 loss to Consort in Byemoor last Saturday. They turned the tables around on Sunday however, winning 9-3 against Innisfail.

The hockey teams are joint between Big Valley and Byemoor this year.

Thought for the day —“If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.”
