Seating is limited and the caterer requires numbers so local residents must reply no later than Oct. 1. Please call Doreen Nixon 403-579-2460, Terry Gallant 403-579-2515, Julie Jones 403-579-2277 or Eleanor Schultz 403-579-2344 with your reply.

Event sponsors include the Endmoor Recreation and Culture Society, Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society, Byemoor Community Club, Endiang Community Society, Byemoor Curling Club, Endmoor Drop-In Society and Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

We send congratulations to Art and Dot Wasdal on the celebration of their 68th wedding anniversary. The couple gathered with several members of their family in Stettler on Monday, Sept. 4 to mark their special milestone. Best wishes for many more happy anniversaries, Art and Dot.

Get well wishes are extended to Maureen Mappin-Smith who is recuperating from knee surgery. We hope you are on the mend, Maureen.

Jim and Maureen Wasdal participated in Stettler’s annual Fly-in Breakfast held on Labour Day, Sept 4. They flew in from Endiang in Jim’s plane.

Members of the Byemoor volunteer fire department were called to assist with back-up in fire fighting in the Fenn and Big Valley areas last week. With the extreme dry conditions the whole area is tinder dry and the fire hazard is high. A big “hats off” goes out to our volunteer fire fighters for protecting our communities from literally burning up. They have responded to several fires this summer and fall.

Congratulations to the Buchwitz brothers — Ryder, Bronc and Colter — on winning the Wild Pony Race at the Medicine Lodge Rodeo on the weekend. Medicine Lodge is between Hinton and Edson. The boys are the sons of Kirk and Twila Buchwitz. Keep up the good work, boys.

Get well wishes are sent to Rylee Jones who suffered a broken arm in a horse riding mishap. We wish you a speedy recovery, Rylee.

Teaching staff at the Byemoor Colony School this year are Megan Haley and Kobi Brower, who are sharing teaching duties while Jenelle Hassett is on maternity leave. Theresa Christie is the teaching assistant once again. There are 21 students at the Colony school this term.

Birthday greetings are sent to Mickey Tucker, who celebrated her 81st birthday on Sept. 10 and to Barbara Schilling, celebrating her 94th birthday on Sept. 17. We hope you both have a great day and year ahead.

With the recent devastation caused by hurricanes in the United States and the Caribbean Islands we can be so thankful we live where we do. Our hearts go out to those who lost loved ones, homes and businesses. Sometimes we take all we have here for granted.

Humour for the day — “Some people say the glass is half full. Some people say the glass is half empty. Engineers say the glass is twice as big as necessary.”
