Bingo loonie pot still growing

.

Gadsby / Westwoods

We discovered one of Alberta’s best kept secrets on Wednesday when we took Percy’s cousin Keith and Glennys Adrian to Sunnybrook Farm in the heart of Red Deer.

A tour of the farm, a piece of homemade pie and lots of old machinery for the men to look at. Keith and Glennys also visited Iona Berg at Heart Haven Lodge while here.

On Saturday night, Eleanor and Frank Dahlgren joined the Strandquist family in Erskine for a family gathering and supper to help celebrate Rocky Strandquist’s 50th birthday. Happy Birthday Rocky!

Sunday visitors at the Dahlgren farm were Frank’s brothers Don and Diane of Wainwright and Victor and Gunna from Surrey, B.C.

Fred and Velvet Entwisle had a busy weekend when they headed to Kimberly B.C. Velvet enjoyed her 30-year Selkirk Senior High School reunion in Kimberly, starting with a meet and greet social time at the Elks center. They helped decorate a float and rode in the July Fest parade. They took in the wind up barbeque for the reunion and even had time to head out to Larchwood Lake to a come and go Entwisle family gathering for supper Saturday night. They returned home Sunday night, tired but full of happy memories.

There will be an open house and dance this Saturday night in Botha at 7:30 p.m. for Travis and Leigh Ann Blackmore, who were married April 20 in Kelowna B.C. Friends and neighbors are welcome to come.

Donna McKay along with her fellow Heartland Belles (Red Hatters) enjoyed a garden party amongst the beautiful flowers in the back yard of Edith Schmidt in Stettler, where they were served refreshments.

Donna was part of the group that participated in the Heart Haven Lodge parade last week, where they enjoyed cotton candy, cold drinks and Joe Schell singing songs of the past.

Our community has once again lost part of our past. Sincere sympathies to Spitz and Aleta Cassidy and all the Cassidy family on the passing of Buzz (Len) Cassidy.

Funeral services for Buzz were held on July 22. Buzz was 77 years old.

There will be a memorial tea on August 2 at 2 p.m. in the Stettler Lutheran Church to honor the life of Peter Taggart Jr (Petey), who passed away suddenly on July 20 at his home. Sympathies go out to his wife Flo and family and to all the Taggart family.

Cash bingo was held on Saturday night at the bank building in Gadsby with fourteen players. The loonie pot continues to grow! Mark August 20 on your calendar for a barbeque and bingo. Details to follow.
