The Church at Endiang is participating once again in the Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign. Shoeboxes will be filled on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. at the Endiang Community Hall.
Everyone is welcome to join in with the packing of the boxes.
Filled shoe-boxes or donated items of wrapped soap, children’s socks, T-shirts, underwear, small toys, etc. are needed to build a box. Pizza from the Byemoor Hotel will be served at 4 p.m. complements of the Church at Endiang.
Another option to assist in the program is to donate towards shipping costs. Each shoe box costs $10 to ship. Donations towards shipping of $20 or more will be receipted.
Last year the Endiang-Byemoor community packed 125 boxes to make Christmas a little brighter for less fortunate children around the world, as well as locally with donations to the Hanna and Stettler Food Banks. The goal is to try to surpass last year’s donation. For more information text Karyn at 403-807-8730.
Two teams from the Endiang floor curling club participated in the floor curling bonspiel at the Botha Senior’s Centre on Nov. 10. Congratulations to the team of Doug Harrold, Doreen Nixon, Luann Buchwitz and Carol Stulberg on winning first place in the bonspiel. Everyone enjoyed the day and the Botha hospitality.
Darcy Tucker from Toronto spent a few days in the community visiting with his family members. He also got a few days of hunting in while here.
A number of folks from Byemoor and Endiang community, including a group from the Endmoor Drop-In Centre, attended one of the four performances of the comedy “Too Many Cooks” in Stettler Nov. 9-12.
The dinner theatre productions were presented by the Heartland Arts Troupe Society (HATS) and were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Hats off to HATS (pun intended) for making such excellent live theatre available in a small town. The show provided plenty of laughs and the meal was fabulous.
Eric, Maureen and Tulsa Smith enjoyed a Hawaiian vacation to the island of Maui. The timing could not have been better as they escaped the early blast of frigid winter that had everyone else shivering.
