The 94th annual Omega Circle bazaar and bake sale was a great success with 118 adults and children. It is always fun to see folks from far away coming home for the day. This year included Shirley (Chick) and Jack Nixon, Athabasca; Phyllis Chick Red Deer; Evelyn Miller, Calgary; Kelly Baird, Teresa and ken Schaub; Kay (Glasier) and Doug Hankinson, Wandering River; Annice (Haner) Erickson, Red Deer; as well as many dear friends from the nearby communities. The winners of all the prizes are listed elsewhere in the paper.
After the bazaar, Bill and Joyce Hansel headed to Provost to Curtis and Corinne Trennery’s to help great granddaughter Cadee celebrate her third birthday. All their great grandchildren were there. Bill and Joyce stayed overnight at daughter Mary Lou and Stan Botting in Cadogan , where grandson Jeff and Kathy joined them for breakfast before they returned home Sunday afternoon.
Also visiting and attending the bazaar from far away was Gloria Blumer of Dinsmore, Saskatchewan. Gloria was here visiting Tammy Hronek and family as well as Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren.
Happy 80th birthday to Smitty! Lavonne and Smitty along with Gordon Jackson, Duane Hronek, Barb and Lorne Nattestad celebrated with supper at The Otherside followed by Saturday supper at Jamie and Rowie Kobi with Gordie and Della Kobi; then on to Bill and Shirley Matier’s 50th anniversary.
Very glad to hear that Lynn Hansel is home recovering from back surgery and doing well. Way to go Lynn!

It is with a heavy heart that we lose another of our Gadsby seniors with the passing of Phyllis Robinson.
