Veterans joined Remembrance service in Byemoor

The district has seen lots of deer hunters lately, both local and from various other areas, trying their luck at bagging a deer for their winter meat supply.

At the Tuesday evening crib night at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre, it was Vi McCarty who posted the best score and Lawrence Wilkie was second. There were enough crib players for five tables. The next crib meet will be on Nov. 17.

Congratulations to Heath and Angie McCrindle of Red Deer on the birth of their first child, a son named Bryce Andrew, on Nov. 5 at the Red Deer hospital. Bryce weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz. Congratulations also to the local grandparents Eldon and Sharon McCrindle.

Velma (nee Boehlke) Gore of Westbank, B.C. arrived on Thursday to spend some time with her relatives in the Endiang area.

On Friday afternoon, a Remembrance service was held at the Byemoor School. Mr. Mitchell, a WW II veteran from Stettler, was the guest speaker and members of the Stettler Legion were also present. The students and guests heard a first-hand account of events of the Second World War and there was also the laying of the wreath in honour of those soldiers who gave their lives so that we may enjoy the freedom we know today.

Melissa Grover was the guest of honour at a party at her home on Friday evening in celebration of her 18th birthday.
