Gadsby mayor voted in again, bake sale Oct. 30

Congratulations to our new council. In the Village of Gadsby James Pothier, Jennifer Burks and Fred Entwisle earned the most votes. On Wednesday night, at an organizational meeting, Fred was once again voted in as mayor. And in the county, Greg Jackson will be our representative.

The Gadsby Ball Association have been hard at work again with new sidewalks installed.

Gadsby was without water for a short period of time when a line was hit while installing a new line.

We welcome Rob and Kim and family and happy birthday, Kim.

Ray and Laura Stevenson took the weekend off and toured around Rocky Mountain House. Happy birthday to Ray who celebrated on Monday.

Birthday greetings to Smitty last week. Wife Lavonne took Smitty out to White Goose for supper.

We have another new baby in the community with the arrival of Grayson Everett, new son to Tannis and Gordon LaRose. He was born in the Camrose hospital Oct. 19 weighing in at 9 lbs., 11 ozs. Proud grandparents are Donna and Norm Robinson.

Don’t forget the 90th annual Omega Circle Bazaar and Bake Sale to be held this Saturday, Oct. 30 at the Gadsby Community Hall starting at 2 p.m. $2 at the door for coffee and cake and a chance at an adult and a children’s door prize. There will be many prizes to be won, popcorn balls and children’s prizes; pail draws, a main raffle, guessing game, fish pond and craft table. The proceeds from the bazaar go towards the upkeep of the Gadsby cemetery.

A correction on the stats of Dianna and Troy Walgenbach’s new baby girl, Hayley Lee who weighed 8 lbs., 10 ozs., born on Oct. 12 in the Stettler hospital.

Miss Emily Ross and her family attended the Halkirk school awards night where her grade one class all received a plaque that will continue on throughout their nine years in Halkirk school. Emily was recognized for her reading and is the most concerned for others. Keep up the good work Emily.

Dwayne, Bonnie and Kristina Kobi attended the Ponoka Riding and Roping Rodeo Association banquet at Ponoka on Saturday night where Kristina received an award for second in novice barrels and an award for fastest time.

Get well wishes to Don Tuchscherer, who is in Calgary hospital recovering from surgery last month; also to Archie Lunevich, who is in Stettler hospital.
