Early visit a gift for Hansels

On Wednesday evening, students from Gadsby and Botha, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles filled the Botha community hall

On Wednesday evening, students from Gadsby and Botha, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles filled the Botha community hall for their annual Christmas concert. The students and teachers put their hearts into making it the success it is.

Bill and Joyce Hansel had a pleasant surprise one evening last week when grandson Ryan and Leila Botting of Provost stopped in on their way home from Christmas shopping near Calgary.

Get-well wishes to Gene Derr, who is once again in ICU in the Red Deer hospital after a mild yet serious heart attack. We hope he will soon be out of hospital to enjoy the coming new year.

Fred and Velvet Entwisle took a few days before Christmas to travel to Kimberley, B.C., to visit Velvet’s parents, as well as family and friends on both sides, before returning home for Christmas.

I want to wish everyone in and around the community a Happy and Healthy New Year and “thank-you for the old year.”
