Elementary students book off for summer

School is out for another year, marking the beginning of summer.

School is out for another year, marking the beginning of summer.

The Gadsby/Botha elementary grades enjoyed a trip to Sundre last Monday.

It was a special treat for Grade 1 student Hanna Winter, whose seventh birthday was that day.

Wednesday was the wind-up at the school, with award presentations to all. The hot-lunch committee served pizza, and then went into the swimming pool to complete the day.

Paulette and Percy Heer received word that grandson Matthew Wideman has made the Grade 9 honour roll and was given the Christian Conduct Award in Three Hills.

Another enjoyable cribbage tournament was held last Tuesday at Heritage Place in Gadsby. The lucky participants were Lesley Howlett, Larry Tuck and Bill Wells, as well as Myrt Hoopfer.

The members hope to see you in the fall.

Betty and Frank Hadwin drove to Provost last weekend for a family reunion on Betty’s side of the family. The reunion was held at her sister Lois and Bob Specht’s family farm. Betty and Frank’s daughter Mary and her family were in attendance.

We welcome Megan (Clarke) and Brandon McPhee and son Ethan into the community. Their new home has arrived and the family took up residence this past weekend.

Their new home is a quarter-mile northwest of Gadsby.

While parents Sheila and Larry Clarke are thrilled to have Megan and her family close by, they were also busy helping daughter Lyndsey and Clay Gordon move to Kindersley, Sask., this month. Best wishes go out to both families!
