Anniversary meeting is on Tuesday this time- Gadsby

It’s been a busy two weeks for us, picking up Paulette’s cousins, Jan and Irene Langnes from Norway on the 12th, driving through “the storm” and coming home to 28 hours of no power.

Percy and Paulette, Jan and Irene took the second week to tour around British Columbia, taking in Three Valley Gap, Revelstoke, Kimberley, Cranbook, meeting up with daughter Christy and Curtis Wideman and family as well as granddaughters Brooke and Samantha Heer. On to Frank Slide, Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump and Ford McLeod, before finishing up with the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. A very hot finish!

Congratulations to Neal Walgenbach for winning the aggregate at the Calgary Stampede and once again able to take the truck home. It was a heartfelt good-bye to his rig and horses after the races as Neal is retiring and has sold his outfit. We wish Neal and Lorna the very best for their future here at home.

Best wishes to Colin Connon and his bride Jenna Wynia of Morrin on their recent wedding, July 17. The wedding was held at the Starland Recreation Area – Morrin bridge with many friends and family in attendance.

Among the attendants was Colin’s brother Cody. Parents of the groom Pam and Darren Connon, grandparents, Nelson and Margaret Connon and Vern and Kay Hansen, all from the local area. The sun shone and the weather held. The reception and dance were held in Morrin. Colin and Jenna are making their home in Edmonton.

Jim and Ethel Baird have enjoyed a visit from niece Terry Petersen from Calgary and her granddaughter Dalliz, also visiting Jim and Ethel’s family.

A landmark in Gadsby has gone down as the family have taken down the Rasmussen house in Gadsby. Also several large trees in Gadsby have blown down, a result of the high wind July 12.

Don’t forget the next meeting of the 100th anniversary on August 3 at 7 p.m. at the bank building. Take note of the different day, a Tuesday. Bring your memories and your pictures. A bit of info: Camping at the ball diamond is “First Come, First Serve”. No reservations are being taken.

Congratulations to Trey Quance and bride-elect Chris who were married July 17 in a beautiful ceremony at the family farm of Dwight and Iva Lee Quance with friends and family gathered. This was followed by the reception and dance in the Botha Hall. We wish Trey and Chris best wishes for their future.

Gordie and Shirley Reynolds have had several visits in Edmonton with daughter Kathy, who had a scary time suffering from an aneurysm of the brain. We are very happy to hear Kathy has recovered and is home and doing well.

Gordie and Shirley also took in Colin Connon’s wedding during the day and also Trey Quance’s dance in Botha that night.
