By Les and Rosemary Stulberg

Endiang Floor Curling Club sent three teams to the Halkirk floor curling bonspiel on Feb. 7 with one of the teams winning top spot in the bonspiel. Congratulations to the team of Dave Sisley, Roxy Gallagher, Doreen Nixon and Eleanor Schultz on their success.

Other teams participating at Halkirk included Betty Campbell, Ken Schultz, Carol Stulberg, Debbie Goeson and Doug Harrold, Mickey Tucker, Cliff Donald and Blaine Goeson.

At the Endmoor Drop-In Centre crib meet on Feb. 5 Ken Schultz posted the top score while Eleanor Schultz had the second best score of the day — looks like they are keeping it in the family.

Get well wishes are sent to Ivy Mohn who is recuperating from a broken ankle. Hope your recovery is a speedy one, Ivy.

After a relatively mild winter, the area has been blessed some real Canadian winter cold weather, with the mercury dipping low — low enough to prompt the cancellation of classes at the Byemoor and Big Valley schools for a few days.

Birthday wishes are extended to these seniors well-known by our community — Feb. 1 – Buster Walker – 92, Feb. 7. – Eleanor Schultz – 83, Feb. 8 – Lucy Gutsche – 85 and Feb. 11 – Mickey Pearn – 93. We hope each one of you had a wonderful birthday and a great year ahead.

Congratulations to former Endiang residents Ken and Betty Halverson who celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary on Jan. 30.

Byemoor School students participated in the Junior High Curling Bonspiel in Big Valley on Friday, Feb. 8 hosted by the Big Valley Curling Club and the Big Valley School.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Darlene Gentes who passed away on Feb. 6 in Stettler at 70 years of age. Darlene and her husband Mickey lived a number of years in the Endiang – Byemoor community and were well-liked members of the community.

Darlene’s funeral was held on Feb. 15 in Stettler. Our thoughts are with Mickey and their children in their time of loss.

Crib held at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre on Feb. 14 saw Blaine Goeson post the top score while Doug Harrold placed second.

Larry and Lorene Stulberg along with another couple enjoyed a break from the bitter cold with a trip to Ixtapa, Mexico. Ixtapa is located on the Pacific side of Mexico between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco.

Byemoor School Grade 6 girls along with teacher Mandi Reitmann and parent supervisor Paige Jones enjoyed a fun day at the Lockdown Escape Rooms in Red Deer. It’s a challenge to solve the clues to manage to escape a locked room in 60 minutes.

Congratulations to the Byemoor School curling team of Ryder Buchwitz, Cash Buchwitz, Will Brown and Bronc Buchwitz on winning a bronze medal in the Big Valley curling bonspiel.

“Forget world peace — try visualizing using your turn signal.”

“Dogs can’t operate MRI scanners — but Cat scan.”
