Gadsby Hall board serves chili to 80 Dec. 2

Santa returning to Westwoods Agrilot Dec. 17

Santa’s been very busy in the Gadsby area!

There were so many kids it was hard to count on Saturday, December 2, when Santa arrived in Gadsby.

Parent Link was out and did crafts and decorated cookies with the kids. There were wagon rides (not enough snow for the sleigh). Brandon McPhee drove the team of horses, Santa came along and sung Christmas songs with the kids, he handed out goodie bags and listened to what they all wanted for Christmas. The Hall Board served supper (chili on a bun) to 80 people that night. And Brandon switched to tractor and wagon to transport people to and from Pothier’s Christmas light up. Good job everyone.

If you’ve missed Santa, or you just want to see him one more time before Christmas, you’re in luck! Santa will be at Westwoods Agrilot on Sunday, December 17 at 3 p.m. Bring your grandchildren, your children, your camera, and your letter to Santa!

Ray and Rene Blackmore are back from an extra trip down to Mexico taking in Valle Dorado the end of November and into December. They had fun in Porto Bello with “a great group of friends”.

Happy 83rd birthday to Lawrence Clarke who was surprised on Santa Day with a visit from his brother Daniel, from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. His son drove him down and presented him to Lawrence at the hall!

Elliot Skocdopole celebrated his 12th birthday on December 2 with a family get together at parents Greg and Richelle’s. Also there were grandparents Gloria and Stan Diegel, Jim and Dixie Skocdopole. There was lots of food, lots of family which included fourteen of Stan and Gloria’s grandchildren there. Happy birthday Elliot.

Mark you calendars for Wednesday, December 13 7-9 p.m. at the Gadsby hall for Country Roads “Paint n Party” night. You will be painting a wooden 1 foot by 4 foot Snowman poster/sign. Fun for everyone interested.
