Gadsby farmers in a race against time, and moisture, to save hay

The farmers are struggling to save what hay they have had cut down, some from before the July 12 storm. One comment I heard was the hay has been turned so many times, it rolls over on its own!

Ethel and Jim Baird have Ethel’s nephews visiting while taking in the Castor celebrations this long weekend. From British Columbia is Glen and Judy Giesbrecht and from Airdrie is Gary and Carol Giesbrecht. Meanwhile Hank and Terry Petersen from Calgary also visited the Baird family, staying at Lynn and Doug Potter’s. Melody Baird was also home for the weekend.

Larry Hansel has been home to parents Bill and Joyce Hansel, helping with the haying as much as possible, fighting the wet mole hills and mosquitoes.

A bit more info to add to Trey and Christine Quance’s wedding of two weeks ago. Christine’s maid of honor was Hope Hawlett of Calgary, bridemaids were Janine Gabruk of Wetaskiwin, Crystal Connell of Stettler and Tera Roninson of Gadsby. Bestmen were Trey’s brother Travis Quance of Drumheller, Caide Rock of Botha, Donavon Robinson of Gadsy and Tanner Deigel of Gadsby. Ring bearer and flower girl were Ryder and Charity Quance. Special mention to those attending the wedding, parents David and Susan Guba of Castor and Dwight and Iva Lee Quance of Gadsby. Christine’s Granda Guba of Emo, Ontario and Grandma Ginstl of Oshawa, Ontario as well as three aunts and five uncles and their families all from Ontario.

Eleanor Dahlgren, along with daughter Bonnie were in Castor last weekend to watch grandson Dallas (Elva’s son) in the team roping. It was a great family time for all.

Paulette and Percy Heer arrived home from their camping trip in time to have a family turkey supper for the Norway cousins with Iona Berg and Jeanne Biesel. Iona spent a couple days at the farm visiting with Jan and Irene. On Wednesday, July 28 Paulette and Percy took Jan and Irene back to Calgary airport for a tearful goodbye and traveled on to Airdrie to spend the night with Annette Green. In the morning they all were back into Calgary to visit Jack who is in long term care at the Peter Lougheed hospital.
