With a few gophers and Canada geese being spotted and the snow melting it appears spring is finally here.
Karyn Ironside was at the Byemoor School on March 18 to speak to the students about India. India is one of the countries the Grade 1-3 classes are currently studying.
Karyn spent the whole day and shared the culture and customs of the people and country, brought memorabilia from India for viewing, explained market shopping for spices and produce, cooked a traditional Indian meal which the students and teachers got to eat and instructed some traditional games of India.
It was an enjoyable and educational day for all. Karyn spent many years in India where her parents did missionary work.
Sympathy is extended to the family of Lori (Allen) Dahl of Hanna who passed away on March 16 at the age of 60 years following a courageous battle with cancer.
Lori was the daughter of the late Ford and Dawn Walker and spent her childhood years at Byemoor.
Our thoughts are with Lori’s family in their sad loss. A private family service will be held. Memorial donations may be made to Lori’s Grandchildren’s Trust Fund at the TD Bank in Hanna. Lori had been caring for her grandchildren following the death of their mother.
