By-election next Monday, annual Santa Claus Day coming soon

The flu caught up with me last Monday and quickly incapacitated me for a whole week. My doctor recommends “Stay home when you’re sick,” I agree.

There were several happenings around the countryside this week. Happy birthday to the Langs, Joe celebrated his 95th and Lorraine her 90th with friends and family on Saturday at the Legion Senior Centre.

As well, friends and family helped Lillian Zimmer celebrate her 80th birthday on Saturday in her new home in Kerrobert, Sask. Home for the event were Frank and Dorothy, Vera and Ron, all of Regina; Glen and Marg, Edith and her husband from the Calgary area; and Marie and Rick, Luseland, Sask.

A reminder, there will be no supper in Gadsby in November but the regular cash bingo will go on as usual on Saturday, Nov. 21. Doors will open at 7 p.m., bingo will start at 7:30. Cake and coffee will be served at half time.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 5 for the annual Santa Claus Day and traditional turkey and ham Christmas supper. This will be held at the Gadsby Community Hall. More details to follow.

It’s great to hear Marina Hansel is home from Calgary Hospital and doing well. Welcome home Marina! Also Frank Dahlgren was back to Calgary, by ambulance and received a good report. Frank has started therapy and walking with a walker. Way to go Frank!

A by-election will be held in the Village of Gadsby on Monday, Nov. 23 beginning at 10 a.m. and ending at 8 p.m. All village residents are encouraged to come out and vote. Running for councilor to replace Mareena O’Brien are Ken Ladouceur and Jennifer Burks. Good luck to both.

The Christmas craft sale at Botha was a huge success on the weekend. Ethel Baird took part in the M.S. bake table which sold out of baking both days, showing a great support from the community.
