Gadsby hits home run


Gadsby / Westwoods

Gadsby’s long-weekend ball tournament was a home run, with 11 teams participating. More than 50 children were on hand for the kids’ games. The concession was kept very busy and the weather was perfect.

In the A Division, the winners were Loose Mitts Limp Sticks (Stettler) and second place went to Pist N’ Broke (Stettler).

The B winners were Worthwhile (Red Deer), while second spot went to Speed Goats (Castor). The C champions were Sluggin ’n Chuggin (Clive), with Retread (Stettler) as runner-up.

A note of safety — please do not use the playground equipment yet. It will be open for use by Friday of this week.

Good news — the crib tournament on Wednesday will be $5 for the day. Events start at the church building at 2 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

And the annual roast beef supper, sponsored by the Gadsby District Hobby Club, will be held this Saturday at the Gadsby community hall.

Supper starts at 5 p.m. Door prizes and dessert smorg are part of the fun. And cash bingo will follow at the bank building. Loonie pot is included.

Rayna and Rene Blackmore, joined by Rene’s sister DJ of Cardston, helped their mother Dorothy McLean celebrate her 85th birthday Sunday at Delburne with friends and family. In attendance were Dorothy’s sisters — Peggy of Kelowna, B.C., and Betty of Red Deer — and brother Dick of Lousana. Everyone enjoyed the potluck dinner and visiting.

Brenda Laboucan and her three grandchildren of Slave Lake spent a few days with Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren, enjoying a late summer holiday.

Nelson and Margaret Connon enjoyed a visit from his sister, Dorthea Nissen, who lives on Vancouver Island. While here, Dorthea visited her many relatives, including sisters Yvonne Coleman and family, Helen Bailey of Heart Haven Lodge and Joe Lang of Paragon Place.
