Wasdals return from World Senior Games in Utah

The little blast of winter we had midway through last week has fortunately been replaced with warm temperatures once again

The little blast of winter we had midway through last week has fortunately been replaced with warm temperatures once again, quickly melting the light snowfall.

Remember that the Byemoor community’s annual roast-beef supper is scheduled for Oct. 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Byemoor hall. Please note the supper is on Saturday. It’s a good opportunity to enjoy some good Alberta beef.

Crowfoot MP Kevin Sorenson was a visitor at the Byemoor School last Tuesday. He spoke to the students about Canada and answered questions they had. The students seemed thrilled to meet their MP.

The Sunday morning coffee party has started up at the Endiang Hall again, with a good attendance at the first gathering. It runs from 10 a.m. until noon each Sunday, with all welcome.

Floor curling at the Endiang Hall resumed on Monday for the fall season. Anyone interested is welcome to join in at 1:30 p.m. each Monday.

Chelsea Walker was honoured with a bridal shower on Thursday at the Byemoor hall, where she received many useful gifts. Chelsea and Alan Pero will be married on Nov. 22 at the Mayan Riviera in Mexico.

Keep in mind the upcoming bridal shower for Melitta Walgenbach, future bride of Chad Sorensen, on Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Endiang Hall.

There will be a bridal shower for Torie Viste, bride-to-be of Colt Pedersen, on Oct. 21 at the Scapa Hall at 2 p.m.

The flu clinic is coming to Byemoor on Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Location is to be announced.

Get-well wishes go out to Agnes Sorensen, a patient in the Stettler hospital. We hope you are feeling well soon, Agnes.

Jim and Maureen Wasdal are home from a trip to Utah and Las Vegas. Jim was playing ball in the World Senior Games at St. George, UT, with the Edmonton-60 team. The team won its first three games, but lost out just before the medal round. The Albertans also took in some of the sights and entertainment of Las Vegas, which wasn’t far away. George and Judy Nichols of Castor accompanied the Wasdals on the trip.

We send get-well wishes to Melitta Walgenbach, who suffered a back injury in a horse-riding mishap. We hope you are on the mend, Melitta.

Jennifer Knowles filled in as substitute teacher for Walgenbach at the Big Valley School, while she was recuperating.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Jessie (nee Morris) Lowis, who passed away at age 94 in Coronation.

Jessie was raised in the Endiang area, where Winnie Paulsen lives today. She attended Summerhill School. When Jessie became a teacher, her first teaching position was at a one-room school near Coronation. She married a local farmer there and remained in that community until her death.

Local folks had a busy weekend, taking in the Oyster Fry in Halkirk, the turkey supper in Big Valley and the Louisiana Hayride show in Stettler.

The Big Valley-Byemoor atoms have started their hockey season. They won their game in Stettler on the weekend by a wide margin. Way to go guys — keep up the good work.

Dylan and Janet Claypool and boys, who moved to Grande Prairie earlier this year, were back to Byemoor on the weekend. They had a garage sale to dispose of some of their surplus items.

Little-known fact — Canada has more automobiles per person than any other country in the world.
