Time to prepare for next month’s Octoberfest in Gadsby

It happened Saturday night! Congratulations to Mary Brennen who was happy to walk away with the loonie pot and $227. Mary’s new favourite number is B1. There were 58 people at supper Saturday night and 22 stayed for bingo. Joe Schell entertained us between events with his songs, guitar and harmonica which we all enjoyed. Thanks, Joe. We encourage anyone with musical talents to come give us a tune. And we hope Joe will once again bring this instruments for our listening pleasure.

Next month will be our Octoberfest at the bank building and we will be serving a variety of German dishes both main course and dessert. The loonie pot will start at $50.

The Gadsby Omega Circle ladies held their monthly meeting at the home of Deborah Hansel and plans are underway for the 90th annual bazaar and bake sale. As always they greatly appreciate all the wonderful donations for prizes and crafts and hope to have these in for the next meeting which will be at Paulette Heer’s on Oct. 21, 7:30 p.m.

There were some glass vases left at the cemetery after Decoration Day and have been safely put away. If anyone wishes to have these back, please contact Margery at 403-574-2247.

Sincere condolences to Velvet Nickerson and family on the loss of Velvet’s lifetime friend, Linda in Kimberley. Velvet had recently been back to be with Linda and we know her loss is heavy on her heart.

Lorraine Lang has returned home once again from a second surgery to implant a pacemaker, the first one not working right. Lorraine underwent surgery on Thursday in Red Deer. Also, best wishes to Joe and Lorraine who had recently moved into Paragon Place.

There will be a tea at the Gadsby Church building on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. This is your last chance to get tickets and win $1000 before the draw is made that day.

To celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary, Gloria and Stan Diegel flew to Scotland, landing in Glasgow to spend two weeks at Galashiels with Gloria’s cousins, Lena and Graham Scott, also visiting their daughter Jan and family and their son Richard. While there Lena and Graham took them for a five day excursion seeing lots, including the Isle of Mul and the Abbey on the Isle of Iona and staying at a bed and breakfast at Inchree Onich while Lena and Graham stayed in their “Caravan” (R.V.). A sad day when they said their goodbyes to head home last Wednesday. Gloria and Stan had a couple days to rest up before enjoying Alexander’s birthday on Saturday. They first attended Alexander’s football game in Stettler where the Panthers took on Sylvan Lake Bears and won 24 to 0. Then back home to Richelle and Greg’s for supper with the family. This included Dixie and Jim Skocdopole, Arden and Deanne, Sophie, Sadie, Eva and Ella; Ybiett, Casandra and Jasmine as well as Alexander’s brothers Chandler and Elliot and sister Bridget. Happy birthday, Alexander!

There is still souvenirs left re Gadsby 100th. If interested in purchasing some, please contact me at 403-574-2442 and I would meet you at the bank building.
