Gadsby bazaar and bake sale Oct. 28

Pothier yard said to have over 42,000 Xmas lights this year

Mark your calendars for October 28 and have fun at the annual bazaar and bake sale, the one money-raising event of the year for the Omega Circle Cemetery. For the second year the event will be held at the Botha Hall to facilitate space for a larger crowd. There will be a bake table, craft table, white elephant, guessing game, door prizes, popcorn draw for the kids, pail prizes and the main raffle which the ladies have been selling tickets for all summer. There is coffee and cake served for $3. which gets your name in for the door prizes.

Congratulations to Keyonna Derr who received the 2016/17 Honor Award, grade eleven, for Clearview Public Schools. “We all Belong – We all Succeed” was the theme.

The Gadsby Community Hall is sporting a new metal sign outside the building. And inside, several events are posted for this fall. October 18 is Spooktacular Paint Night from 6-8 p.m. This is for all ages. Then on November 4 it’s Holiday Paint Night. Tickets are $45 which includes two projects, appetizer buffet, dessert menu, prizes and one entry in the grand prize draw. This starts 7 p.m.

Meanwhile Kerri and James Pothier are busy in their yard. This is what they have to say: ” The date for this year’s Gadsby Light Up is Saturday December 2, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. We’ve added 7,000 lights bringing the total up to 42,000 lights! Awesome displays! If you were at the light up last year be prepared to see some really cool new displays this year.” Also there will be sweet treats and 20 different delicious types of cookies served with homemade hot chocolate.

In conjunction with this, the Gadsby Community Hall will also be doing Santa Day on the same day, December 2 from 2 – 5 p.m. They will be serving hot dogs at the hall as well as a visit from Santa and horse drawn sleigh rides through the village. From 5-9 p.m. there will be chilli on a bun at the hall (by donation) as well as a campfire. There will be crafts to do inside from 5-9 p.m. for those looking for some quiet time and warm up. Kerri and James and the members of the hall urge everyone to participate, there’s something for everyone.

Thanksgiving at the Percy Heer’s saw 14 guests, Curtis and Christy Wideman, Matthew, Clayton, Josie and Rocky (who is from Hong Kong), Doug and Shirley McKay, Jeanne Beisel, John and Lorraine Hankins, MacKenzie and Justin and Aunt Jean Hankins who all came for supper. Later John and Jewel and Bailey dropped in for a visit. Birthday greetings to Justin who turned 17 on October 16 and to Brooke Heer who celebrated her royal birthday (17 on the 17).

And Happy 18 birthday to Curtis Lang who celebrated on the 9 of October.

There is a Facebook group who, if you attended school anytime in the past in Gadsby, is a must to view and join; “Gadsby School Group” The latest posting is a picture from the 1960’s, “PeeWee 4H Club” featuring Melody Baird, Roxanne Ziegler, Maureen Mailer, Pam Biggelaar, Kelly Chick, and leader Bernard Garland. There are pictures from the 40’s and 50’s on up. Lots of fun.
