This year’s Christmas concert gets lavish praise from community

Christmas buzz is all around us with last-minute shopping, visiting and, of course, Christmas concerts.

Botha/Gadsby elementary school concert was held Wed, Dec. 15 at Botha Community Hall.

“The best in years” and “a wonderful Christmas theme” were the most common quotes and the hall was packed.

Well done, children and staff.

Birthday greetings go out to Iona Berg, who enjoyed a birthday tea at Heart Haven Lodge in Stettler on Dec. 15. Event guests Percy and Paulette Heer and Jeanne Beisel joined Iona for lunch at the lodge with over 20 friends and relatives and staff of Heart Haven joining her in the afternoon.

Percy and Paulette, along with about 14 other relatives helped Percy’s sister, Dale Van Straten, celebrate her birthday on Dec. 18 at Dale and Eldon’s with supper and birthday cake.

Happy birthday, Dale and Iona.

Sunday was a day of music as many Gadsby residents heard the choir of St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church in Stettler as all sang their hearts out in the morning and evening under the direction of Doug McKay.

In the afternoon, many local residents took in the special concert at Stettler Performing Arts Centre with a full house.

Janine Glasier and family drove to Saskatchewan to enjoy an early Christmas with her parents.

Alicia Glasier held a pre-Christmas scrapbooking day at Gadsby Bank Building on Saturday.

Gadsby Ball Association hosts its annual general meeting Jan. 14 at Gadsby Bank Building at 7 p.m. Any interested persons are invited to attend.
