Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren had an awesome Saturday night at Delburne, where they attended the 50th Year Awards and Banquet for Gymkhana. They watched as daughter Elva McAllister received second place in the 40 and over High Point; granddaughter Tammy Hronek received first in Ladies’ High Point and great granddaughter Kayla Hronek received first in Peewee High Point. Fifty years ago, Elva received a trophy in Peewee High Point. Using this trophy, moving her Peewee plaque to the back and putting Kayla’s on the front to be presented to Kayla; v very moving moment. Congratulations to all.

Happy birthday to Dewey Hoopfer, who turned 65 on Friday. I have it on good authority that there were no pink flamingos on his lawn but it was decorated. Family and friends joined him that night for cake and best wishes.

Congratulations to Haley Bigney and Nick Young who celebrated their daughter Rowyen’s first birthday with family watching as Nick proposed to Haley. She said “yes”. Happy birthday, Rowyen!

And the Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) is over for another year, in Edmonton. Many family and friends were on hand to watch as Cody Cassidy took championship in steer wrestling. Average winner was Curtis Cassidy and High Point winner Curtis Cassidy. Way to go, boys!

Mark your calendars for Nov. 28. Help Bill Hansel celebrate his 75th birthday at the Gadsby Hall from 2 to 4 p.m. The family invite everyone to enjoy the day with Bill.

And, finally; we stand in solidarity with France as we remember all who lost their lives last Friday to terrorism.
