Another reminder that Mother Nature is more powerful than mere humans; strong winds gusting close to 90 km/hr wrecked havoc.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — Another reminder that Mother Nature is more powerful than mere human; strong winds gusting close to 90 km/hr on Wednesday night, May 24 wrecked havoc on trees and power lines in the community and around the province.

Bill and Joyce Hansel have been busy this past couple weeks, starting May 11 when Stan and Marylou took them out to lunch. On May 12, son Larry surprised them with an overnight visit and on the following day, Grant Musgrove and kids were over in the morning; Bill and Joyce spent the afternoon at Percy and Paulette’s where the men enjoyed two games of 500, then Brad and Sue took them out for supper. All these events helping Bill and Joyce to celebrate their 57th anniversary.

The annual 4H beef show and sale was held this past week with a great turn out and full support from the communities, families and friends. Vic and Barb Carey attended the show and sale, where they were proud to watch their grandson Jonah Jarmin show his steer.

Fred and Velvet Entwisle have returned from Kimberley, B.C. where they visited Velvet’s mom and dad, Linda and Ben Nickerson, her sisters Faye and Vicki, some nieces and nephews. They had a family breakfast with friends and family in town before heading home. Son Kyle and Leigha surprised them by stopping in Kimberley on their way through, heading to the northern parts of States. Kyle and Leigha are in the process of moving to Lacombe from Stettler.

On Tuesday, May 23, Bill and Joyce were once again on the road, this time to Castor to watch grandson Devon play hardball. Their team, from Amisk won over Castor nine to three.

Another quick reminder, there will be a crib tournament in Gadsby at heritage Place on Wednesday, June 7, then on Thursday, June 8, the County of Stettler will be presenting a fruit tray at the old church building around 2 p.m. for Seniors’ Week. Everyone is welcome.
