Velvet Nickerson and her sisters Faye and Vicki took in the Garth Brooks concert on Saturday, Feb. 25 at Roger’s Place, Edmonton. They described it with one word, “fantastic.” They were moved by the “9 Concert” banner hung permanently with the hockey banners and loved the music and interaction with the people. They had dinner at The Curve in Roger’s Place. Garth Brooks broke his 1997 record of 500 million tickets sold for 110 concerts, with his present sale of 500 million tickets for 60 concerts. Faye and Vicki arrived at Velvet’s on Friday, Feb. 24.

James and Kerri Pothier helped niece Elizabeth Herrell celebrate her 16th birthday. It was a successful surprise party on Saturday, March 4 at the Erskine Lodge. Hosting were her parents Cammy and Louis Gendre with over 150 well wishers present including her whole family. From Gadsby joining were Uncle Marcelle Jacques and close friend Ray Stevenson. Some of the highlights were three birthday cakes, a photo booth and so many decorations. Happy Birthday Elizabeth.

Velvet Nickerson and Paulette Heer motored to Wetaskiwin on Tuesday. They enjoyed dinner at O’Brians and a visit to the lung laboratory before heading home.

An accident near Hardisty last weekend has touched Gadsby. Sincere sympathies to Ella (Jerzak) Vance on the untimely passing of her daughter Michelle and son-in-law Tim Carson along with their two children Niki and Shawn, all of Amisk, Alberta. Also to Lena Zweifel and family; Marie (Miller) Vance of Gadsby and to all the Jerzak family. Our thoughts are with you.
