Spring is here at last

Warm weather has arrived in Gadsby, while ice and snow can still be found in the north towards Camrose.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — Spring is definitely here, at least in our county. Having travelled to Camrose and north we discovered there is much more snow on the fields, the dugouts and creeks are still frozen there; while south of Gadsby, toward the Byemoor area, no snow and there’s partial thawing on Shooting Lake. Also road conditions are still very pliable with soft spots and water running over the roads in some areas. There is construction about six miles north of Gadsby on the “class B” road, the sign says Bridge out. And there is a detour in place. The job should be completed this week. Drive with caution.

Stan and Gloria Diegel had a busy weekend starting with son-in-law Greg Skocdopole’s 40th birthday on Friday, March 24 with close to 60 people invited to Greg and Richelle’s. Then on Saturday, March 25 it was off to Wade and Ybiett’s for a double birthday celebration granddaughter Bella’s fourth birthday (actual day being March 22) and granddaughter Cassie’s 16th on Thursday, April 6. A family supper, gifts, games and fun-filled evening.

Bill and Joyce Hansel enjoyed a visit from granddaughter Karla and her three kids Saturday night, March 25 for supper. They stayed overnight and went to Calgary Zoo the next day.

Bill and Joyce’s daughter MaryLou came Wednesday night, March 29. She drove Joyce to Sherwood Park on Thursday, March 30 for a medical appointment. Joining them there for a quick visit were Joyce’s daughter Sandy and Rod before returning to Gadsby. MaryLou left for home Friday afternoon.

Another visitor to the Calgary Zoo this past week was Haley Bigney and girls, Cooper and Rowyn, joining them in Calgary was grandma Monica. Meanwhile back home, Velvet doggy sat their puppy Hootch.

The Heartland Belles have been enjoying a season of dinner theatres; coffee Thursdays and short excursions around Stettler and Castor, to name a few.

Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren took in the final barrel racing windup held in Stettler on Saturday. Also performing were great grandchildren Kayla and Luke Hronek.
