Gadsby goes to bat for new ball season

Some events are winding down to ready for summer, while others are just beginning.

Some events are winding down to ready for summer, while others are just beginning.

The Gadsby Ball Association had a good turnout for the meeting last Friday, with several new volunteers in place. The new executive includes president Amy Kobi, vice-president Jordan Hoopfer, secretary Ken Glasier and treasurer Richelle Atterbury.

Coaches have been drafted and Monday nights, starting May 13, from 6:30 to 7 p.m., there will be free fun nights for kids ages 3 to 10. It involves a bit of learning and lots of fun.

Anyone wishing to sign up for the season is asked to call 403-742-8637 or 403-323-0404.

The Red Eye tournament will be held from July 12 to 14 in Gadsby. Get your team’s name in early for a great weekend.

This weekend, several families from the Gadsby and Botha areas are hosting a three-day garage sale at the Botha hall, starting Thursday at 9 a.m. Everything from furniture, sports equipment, tools and games — just to name a few — are on sale. Look for the ad in the garage sale listing. Free coffee and cookies for all.

Gloria and Stan Diegel attended the “Raw Talent” wind-up dance recital at Botha on Friday night. They enjoyed watching granddaughters Bridget, Kassandra and Jasmine.

The week before, Sophie Diegel’s group received two gold and two silver; Sadie’s group was awarded three gold and one silver in a competition at Olds, while Bridget placed first in the Stettler music recital.

On Saturday night, Gloria and Stan joined granddaughter Sophie Diegel to celebrate her 10th birthday. Also there were Tasha, Mac and Jules; Wade and Ybiett and family; Richelle and Greg and family; as well as grandparents Ron and Donna Beier of Stettler.

Members of Heritage Place society (church building) were busy serving dinner at the floor curling event in Botha last weekend.

On Thursday night, Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren attended the barrel racing Winter Series Wind up at the Stettler Agriplex. They were pleased when all the peewees were awarded engraved jackets with a picture of each “in action.”

A reminder that this Friday, there will be a bridal shower for Megan Hurlburt, bride-elect of Tanner Walgenbach (Cecil and Pat’s son). This will be held at the Ramada Inn in Stettler at 7 p.m. in the “meeting room.” Everyone is welcome.

Paulette Heer, along with Jeanne Beisel and Lorna Brown, joined Iona Berg for a fun day of Canasta last Wednesday. They stayed to enjoy a delicious roast-beef dinner with Iona at the Heart Haven Lodge.

Len Schochenmeier has moved into Heart Haven Lodge in the past week. We wish him well.
