Weekend offers great fun in Gadsby

Another warmer than usual week gone by and hopes of it to continue through this week with the annual bazaar and Halloween this Saturday.

Another warmer than usual week gone by and hopes of it to continue through this week with the annual bazaar and Halloween this Saturday.

Start the day at the Gadsby Community Hall. The bazaar starts at 2 p.m. There is an admission fee which gives you lunch and a chance at the door prize. There will be a bake table, crafts, guessing game, white elephant, pail prizes to choose from and the main raffle. For the kids there is the popcorn tickets and fishpond. Lots to choose from. Draws at 3:30 p.m.

Bill and Joyce Hansel took a Sunday drive, bearing gifts of pumpkins for the great grandchildren; cupcakes for the birthday girl. They had birthday lunch with Curtis and Corinne to celebrate Cadee’s fourth birthday. They then stopped at Marylou and Stan’s for a visit before heading home. They back tracked enough to take in Halloween decorations.

Friday night Bill and Joyce had company in to play cards. Percy and Paulette. It should be noted the girls did very well.

Wayne and Margery Glasier enjoyed a weekend visit from Wayne’s sister Kay and Doug Hankinson of Wandering River. Kay and Doug were up for a train ride.

It has come to attention that past local boy James Cressman was among the winners at the Canadian Country Music Awards in Halifax last month. He received awards for “Agency of the Year” “Management Company of the Year” and “Ron Sakamoto Talent Player of the Year” . We can say we knew him when. Congratulations, James!

Happy 50th anniversary greeting to Terry and Daphne Ziegler!

We have once again lost past citizens of the Gadsby area. It is with a sad heart that we say goodbye to Betty Opsal. Norman and Betty lived south of Gadsby for many years, where their two boys, Tyler and Shane, were born. Betty worked in Stettler at Johnson and Connor Agency. They later moved to Tees but kept in touch with many of their friends in Gadsby and Stettler. We send community sympathies to Norman and the family.

Also a recent loss with the passing of Marie (McMillan) Long. She was the daughter of Mac (Malcolm) and Imelda McMillan. Marie was raised in the Gadsby district. She attended school in Stettler and received her teaching certificate in the last year Normal School was ever held in Edmonton. She married Ken Long and they called Lacombe their home. Marie also kept in touch with Gadsby, attended Decoration Day and supported the Omega Circle throughout her life. Marie was 89 years of age.

Help keep Halloween a safe and fun Saturday.
