It’s a girl! Rowyn Velvet Kathleen Bigney , born October 28, seven pounds, seven and a half ounces, 19 inches. Halley and Nick (mom and dad) are doing well. A sister for Cooper. And, of course, proud grandparents, Fred and Velvet Entwisle.
Fred arrived home Thursday, just in time to enjoy his new granddaughter. Then it was off to a Gadsby village meeting; the annual organizational meeting. The council remains the same: Mayor Laura Kelly-Stevenson, Deputy Mayor Brian Burk, Councillor Fred Entwisle. Secretary Carla Tuck. The sewer project is making progress with the main line in place, thanks to Ernie Gendre and his crew.
We welcome three new families into Gadsby; Greg Chick, Dave Belaire, Kyle Selki.
Halloween saw many ghosts and goblins out. Frank and Eleanor had 14 at their door, Bill and Joyce 10 and Gloria and Stan saw 28. Donna McKay, along with her fellow Heartland Belles, dressed for the occasion and “painted the town”. They started with a Halloween party at the Anglican Church, where they also celebrated Joyce Gordon’s birthday; then an hour at the Legion, Stettler Hotel and on to Big Valley.
They are without their queen at present as Joanne Vallet is in Red Deer hospital recovering from a broken hip. We send get well wishes to her.
