Santa Day and Christmas light up in Gadsby Dec. 2

Congratulations to Larry Clarke from Gadsby area who was elected by his peers as the new County of Stettler reeve after first winning the Ward 3 Gadsby/Botha seat at the county elections recently.

Birthdays abound this week. Bill and Joyce Hansel drove to Hughenden to help great grandchildren, Cadee and Dallon Trenerry celebrate their birthdays. Cadee turned 6 and most recently Dallon turned 2 on November 10. The theme of their combined party was a costume party where all the kids dressed up. The hosts, their parents Curtis and Corinne Trenerry, welcomed 30 adults and kids for a fun day.

Meanwhile birthday greetings to Tasha (Diegel) Cordel who turned 40 on November 5 and to her older brother Wade Diegel whose birthday was November 2. Richelle (Diegel) and Greg Skocdopole along with Stan and Gloria Diegel took in the Ag Farm Show in Red Deer on Saturday, November 11. This is an annual event for them, one they enjoy and recommend to all. And…exciting news for the family as Sadie Diegel has been accepted at the University of Alberta in Edmonton to begin her nursing degree. Congratulations Sadie.

Happy Birthday to Cooper Bigney who turned 8 on November 10. Mom Haley Dodgson and grandma Velvet were among the guests. They held the birthday party at the Stettler Aquatic Center where the kids did their own paintings on canvas. The menu was hotdogs and birthday cake. This was held early, on Saturday, November 4.

Percy and Paulette Heer celebrated their 45th anniversary on Saturday, November 4, with son John and Jewel and Bailey bringing supper over and playing games after. Smoked chicken and ribs on the menu, really good. Then on Sunday friends Doug and Shirley McKay took Percy and Paulette to Linda Hall for their fall supper. An excellent roast beef and pie supper. The place was crowded.

Donna McKay and the Heartland Belles also gathered at Linda Hall for the fall supper. It was good to see the ladies that used to attend the Gadsby bingos and suppers. A great reunion, Sheila, Janet, Evelyn and Pat! I reminded Evelyne that 45 years ago she sang at our wedding.

Get well to Thelma Davits who underwent emergency microscopic appendectomy surgery in Red Deer November 2 and remained in hospital for a few days. Thelma had to be readmitted on Thursday, November 9 for complications. We hope she will be out soon.

Another reminder, as the weeks are going fast, Santa Day and Christmas light up in Gadsby on December 2. The day starts at the hall with Santa, sleigh rides, goodies and activities. Chilli on a bun later. And the Christmas Light up at James and Kerri’s (just north/west of the hall) at dusk. Cookies and hot chocolate, bring your camera! Lots of great picture spots! Everyone welcome. Kerri has been teasing us with pictures of her cookie baking, on Facebook. Looks great, can’t wait!
