Sons Darrell, Duane and Dwight and family put on a program filled with history, laughter, and music (Joe himself played the drums, bringing back great memories!)

Also happy birthday to Rosemary Payne and Laura Kelly-Stevenson this week.

The CFR Canadian finals rodeo results are in. Congratulations to Curtis Cassidy who received the CFR “High Point Aggregate” for this year. Even though his time of 3.8 in steer wrestling placed him a very close second (.2 seconds behind the winner) he had a great season and we wish him and Cody the best in the coming season.
And congratulations to 10-year-old Chloe Shingoose, who opened Wednesday’s events with the singing of O Canada. Chloe also sang at the farm show during the week of CFR in Edmonton. Chloe is the granddaughter of Betty Ann (Robinson) and John Cassidy and we like to claim her and her family as part of Gadsby. Her mother, grandparents and great grandparents all from Gadsby area.
Chloe also sang at Gadsby’s Decoration Day service in August, much to the delight of the veterans and guests.
