Les and Rosemary Stulbeg Byemoor/Endiang News

Byemoor School doors opened for a new term on Tuesday, Sept. 5 with some changes in staff. The new principal is Mike Flieger, shared with Botha School. Also new to the teaching staff this year are Tara Hallet and Rich Martel. Teacher and vice-principal Gwen Keith, secretary-librarian and education assistant Linda Kobi, kindergarten assistant Erin Wilkie, playschool instructor Paige Jones and caretaker Sabrina Cartwright are all back once again.

Bus drivers are Rosemary Stulberg, returning and driving the Endiang route, and Brandy Mappin, a new regular driver this year taking the Byemoor route. Anita Mappin drives the high school students to Stettler. Roxy Gallagher once again has her Big Valley route.

Sandra Keith has retired as a bus driver after driving for about 14 years. Brandy Mappin has taken over her route. We hope Sandra enjoys her extra time off with her grandchildren.

Start Right Play School begins on Monday, Sept. 18. Parents with children aged three to five interested in registering may pick up forms at the Byemoor School. Remember to bring along your child’s birth certificate. For more information contact the Byemoor School at 403-579-3959 or instructor Paige Jones at 403-876-2923.

Byemoor School is holding its Terry Fox Run on Friday, Sept. 15. The students would be grateful for any and all pledges to help this worthy cause.

The Byemoor School is proud to announce the addition of a 3-D printer in its Maker Space classroom.

Happy Birthday wishes are sent to Ben Starling who celebrated his 85th birthday on August 29. Congratulations on this special milestone, Ben and best wishes for many more.

We send get-well wishes to Bob Green who is a patient in the Stettler hospital. Your friends and neighbours are thinking of you and hope you are feeling better soon, Bob.

Ethel Hayden, 93 of Calgary visited with her long-time friend and former classmate Lois Ballinger, 90 at Points West Living in Stettler recently. Both ladies grew up on farms located between Endiang and Byemoor; Ethel the daughter of Ralph and Meta Waters and Lois the daughter of Lloyd and Helen Walker. The girls would ride double on Ethel’s horse to attend classes at Rustle School, a one-room schoolhouse in the area. I’m sure the ladies enjoyed much reminiscing and shared many memories that day.

Many local Garth Brooks fans took in one of his seven sold-out concerts in Calgary, from Sept. 1- 9. The 55-year-old country music superstar and his wife Trisha Yearwood put on a high-energy, crowd-pleasing performance.

Les and Rosemary Stulberg and their family joined members of the Diprose family to celebrate the 90th birthday of Rosemary’s mother Dorothy Diprose. The family gathered in Stettler on Sunday, Sept. 3 to celebrate the special milestone.

Humour for the day — “When a girl cancels a date she cancels it because she has to. When a boy cancels a date he cancels it because he has two.”
