The latest from the Byemoor and Endiang regions

Ken and Eleanor Schultz’s annual campout was held this past weekend

Les and Rosemary Stulberg

Ken and Eleanor Schultz’s annual campout weekend with pancake breakfast and other activities drew a much smaller crowd this year than usual due to the Covid situation.

However, it was still much enjoyed by those who attended.

On Saturday evening, Karyn Tateson and Irene Brooker supplied the music for the campfire sing-a-long. Their talents and those of some great singers were enjoyed until the time for fireworks. A spectacular fireworks show was presented at dark that could be seen for miles around.

The pancake breakfast on Sunday was held outside and that was followed by the Great Endiang Balloon Race. About 60-70 tagged balloons were launched this year. In past years the balloons have been found as far away as the U.S. mid-west and points in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Winners of the Frisbee Golf Tournament were Greg Chop and Michele Toews. Congratulations Greg and Michele.

Thanks to the Schultz family for hosting once again. Hopefully, next year the world will be back to normal so more people can enjoy.

Congratulations to Meghan Nichols (nee Mappin) and Rolly Thomson on their marriage on Sunday, July 19th. A small family wedding was held at the couple’s acreage near Stettler. We wish Meghan and Rolly and their family all the best in their future married life together.

Velma Gore (nee Boehlke) from Kelowna, B.C. arrived on Friday night for a stay with her cousin Mickey Tucker and other relatives and friends in the area.

Lee and Christine Tucker picked Velma up in Calgary and brought her back to Oyen. On Saturday, Mickey and Florence Tucker picked Vel up and brought her to Endiang. It’s good to have you visiting the community again, Vel.

The bridal shower for Garrett and Desyane McCrindle planned for this week at the Byemoor Hall has been postponed until further notice. Watch for further details at a later date.

A Footcare Technician is coming to the Endmoor Drop-In Centre in Byemoor twice a month. Anyone needing foot care or wishing more information may contact Eleanor Schultz at 403-579-2344 for details.

Humour for the day — “Ever play a country music record backwards? You get your wife back, you get your house back, you get sober and your dog comes back home.”

“Pete has kleptomania. When it gets bad, he has to take something for it.”
