A week of birthdays in Gadsby

With a light snow falling Monday morning comes a reminder; a little over six weeks until Christmas.

With a light snow falling Monday morning comes a reminder; a little over six weeks until Christmas.

Keeping with the theme, several from the community headed over to Botha to the Christmas craft sale on Saturday. Michelle Renschler was set up, taking pictures/portraits of the “wee ones” just in time to hand out for Christmas.

This week has been a birthday week. On Saturday, Cooper Bigney celebrated her birthday at the library with eight school friends, Grandma Velvet, uncles and aunts Kyle and Leigha; Tom and Angela and girls; cousin Piper (Cooper went to Piper’s the next day to help her celebrate her birthday, with swimming and cake). Cooper’s theme was dinasours, from the games to the birthday cake. Happy birthday, Cooper and Piper! Grandma Monica had been up from Calgary during the week.

Happy 90th birthday to Bryce Mailer. I’m sure there was birthday cake at their house as well.

Ybiett and family helped Wade Diegel celebrate his birthday on Nov. 2 with Stan and Gloria over for supper. Happy birthday Wade and sister Tasha Cordel whose birthday was Thursday, Nov. 5.

Good luck to Curtis Cassidy who will be competing at the Canadian Rodeo Finals starting Nov. 11 in Edmonton.

Staying with Vic and Barb Carey this past week were Barb’s sister Laurie and Andy Brownlow from Chilliwack, B.C.; brother Ken and Elaine Ganshirt from Regina, Saskatchewan. As well day visits from sister-in-law Gretha Ganshirt and sister Leslie and Duane from Alliance.

As I am told, after sending the winner list in, the Omega winner list will be posted Nov. 18. Sorry for the delay.
