2015 year of changes in Gadsby

GADSBY -- Reflections on 2015 saw a change of councillor and mayor in Gadsby. The Bruce Bignell Park started and put on hold for the winter.

GADSBY — Reflections on 2015 saw a change of councillor and mayor in Gadsby. The Bruce Bignell Park started and put on hold for the winter, and the closure of the Gadsby District Hobby Club. However, the Gadsby sewer project is completed much to the relief of the town council.

Dale and Corina Derr, along with Shane and Denise Jacobson, have returned from a much enjoyed 10-day trip to Mexico. They arrived home to snow and ice, but liked the break in winter. Corina and Denise’s mom Wilda had won the trip for four last year and the deadline for the tickets was fast approaching.

Bill and Joyce Hansel enjoyed a day of card playing with Larry and Kathy Tuck. Then on Saturday, Karl and Grace Krautt were out for their annual birthday visit with Bill and Joyce.

Another birthday party for Gloria and Stan Diegel on Friday night when grandson Elijah turned four. Mom and dad Ybiett and Wade hosted with aunts and uncles Richell and Greg and family; Arden and Deanne and family were also all there.

We send condolences to Greg and Richelle Skocdopole, Dixie and Jim on the passing of Lois Savage, Greg’s grandmother; Dixie’s mom. She was 90 years of age.

An old fashion Sunday School Christmas concert was held at the Stettler Lutheran Church on Sunday. Percy and Paulette enjoyed birthday cake for Jesus after the service, dinner out and a day of fellowship with friends.
