A joint municipal meeting was held in Byemoor on March 5. About 30 representatives from the Counties of Stettler, Starland and Paintearth and the Special Areas Board met for a supper meeting to discuss items of mutual concern and share ideas. The Byemoor Hall ladies catered a delicious roast beef supper. This year’s meeting was hosted by Starland County but the location is always in Byemoor because of its central location.

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up on March 17 here’s a little Irish humour — “Why shouldn’t you ever iron a four-leaf clover? You don’t want to press your luck.”

“What do you get when you cross a four-leaf clover with poison ivy? A rash of good luck.”

“What is Irish and stays out all night? Paddy O’Furniture.”
