Enjoy the sunshine this week

It has been really nice outside the past few days, although this week has seen a dip in the temperatures.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — It has been really nice outside the past few days, although this week has seen a dip in the temperatures, accompanied by some great sunshine.

Joyce Hansel and Marie Vance enjoyed a night out Tuesday evening, attending the weekly cribbage tournament at the Stettler Legion. They doubly enjoyed the fact that they won five out of six games with a two-point shortfall on the sixth game. Way to go girls! Bill and Joyce headed up to Percy and Paulette’s the following afternoon where the girls tied the boys in four games of five hundred. Needless to say everyone had lots of fun.

Gloria and Stan Diegel along with daughter Richelle and Greg Skocdopole, Alexander, Elliot, Chandler, Bridget and Jinger were headed off on a family journey, flying to Phoenix where they met with Jim and Dixie Skocdopole for destination Orlando, Florida. There they boarded the Disney Ship for a Disney Cruise. Some of the highlights were Autographs with Tinkerbell; an excursion on Tortola Island, which is part of the British Virgin Islands; the next stop was St. Thomas, USA where they swam in the ocean; Castaway Cay, owned by Disney and then back to Orlando. There was a Pirate Night and a deck party; Star Wars at Sea where the family won a chance to meet and greet the cast. Everyone enjoyed the plays, comedians, movies under the stars. There was also a Princess Tea, which was a meet and greet with the princesses, and a Disney Characters’ breakfast to name a few of the events. On another note, Stan enjoyed the ice cream stand!

Birthday greetings to Darlene Derr and Jewel Heer.

Corina Derr, daughters Rae-Ann Foot and Shayla Derr took in the Garth Brooks concert last week and had a blast.

Ray and Rene Blackmore are back from their annual trip to Mexico, spending ten days in Peurto Vallarta and reuniting with friends who they’ve kept in touch with from past years in Mexico. This week Curtis and Christy Wideman took a week in Mexico as well.

Sincere sympathy to Donna McKay and family on the passing of her Aunt Bunnie (Alice Lewis) on Wednesday, Feb. 15 in Camrose. She would have been one hundred on yesterday, Feb. 28. Bunnie resided in Heart Haven for several years. Her funeral was held at the Kingdom Hall on Saturday, Feb. 25.
