As summer is winding down, families are gearing up for another school year.

Best wishes to Junae Ventnor who is moving to Red Deer having been accepted into Marvel College for hairstyling, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 5. McKenzie Hankins will be heading back to Saskatchewan for her second year there. School supplies in Stettler are going fast.

Birthday greetings to Velvet Nickerson for Aug. 18. Velvet enjoyed a day at the park in Stettler with her grandchildren. Then over to son Tom and Angela’s for a barbecue. Haley and family were there as well. Get well wishes to Tom who recently broke his arm.

Gloria and Stan Diegel travelled with daughter Richelle and Greg Skocdopole and family to Great Falls and Helena, Montana on Aug. 12, and returned on Aug. 15. While there, they shopped for back to school and did some sight seeing.

Best wishes to Frank Hadwin who recently moved to a lodge in Consort, having sold his acreage near Gadsby.

The Musgrove family had a scary experience when their baler caused a fire in a hay field. The quick actions of the Castor Fire Department saved the day as well as the tractor and baler. And thankfully no one was hurt.

Lena Zweifel, along with her daughter Peggy, have returned home from a visit with Lena’s brother Percy and Janette Jerzak who live near Smokey Lake, Alberta. Sister Julia was there as well. While visiting they celebrated Julia’s 75th birthday.

Get well wishes to Eleanor Dahlgren who is in Stettler hospital. Great to hear Frank Dahlgren is out of hospital.

The ladies of the Gadsby Omega Circle met at the home of Deborah and Harold Hansel on Thursday night, Aug. 17, to plan and finalize details for the 87 annual Decoration Day service to be held on Sunday Aug. 27 beginning at 2 p.m. Bring your umbrella or a wide brim hat to protect yourself from the sun! But first, join the members of the Gadsby Heritage Society at the old church building for pancake breakfast from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This day has become a way of reconnecting with old friends and neighbours and is a mini reunion for most.

Percy and Paulette Heer drove to Grande Prairie on Friday, Aug. 18 to visit Percy’s cousin Keith and Glennys Adrian and family. They returned home on Monday, Aug. 21.

The annual Westwood Ag Society annual fall fair is on Tuesday Aug. 29 with entries at 4:30 p.m. Judging will start at 5:30 p.m., followed by a potluck supper. Everyone’s welcome.
