After serving in WW II, Don Berner came to Belloy AB from Kelliher, SK by train in 1946 to meet his brother Norman. He spent the summer breaking bush and then moved back to Saskatchewan to farm. In 1948 he came back to the Wanham area and took a homestead with the Lassiter project. At age 40, Don married a widow, Alice (Howard) Noga, and became a father to her 2 daughters, Susan and Barbara.
