Gadsby steps up for baseball, needing executives to fill plate

Baseball is on the minds of the Gadsby Ball Association.

Baseball is on the minds of the Gadsby Ball Association.

There will be a general meeting at the Bank Building on April 26, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The baseball organization is looking for coaches and three board positions to fill, with the ongoing support of the past board.

If those positions aren’t filled and the support is not there, the ball association can’t go forward. Please step up and lend your support.

On another spring note, Bar Harbour Camp registration is underway. Bar Harbour is north of Stettler and has been running for more than 60 years. It runs mainly off the goodwill of donors and is a registered charity.

For more camp information, phone 403-574-2442.

Spring garage sales are on the way!

Paulette, Jeanne, Velvet, Lorraine and Joyce are busy planning their annual sale for May 2, 3 and 4 at the Botha Hall.

If anyone is interested in joining them, contact Paulette at 403-574-2442. It’s a fun week … we set up Wednesday at the hall.

Birthday greetings go out to Bertha Bible, who celebrated her 90th birthday Saturday at Heart Haven Lodge with cake and coffee, friends and family.

On Sunday, the Gadsby Hall was alive with balloons, cupcakes, presents, family and friends, as well as lots of young people to help Lincoln Robinson celebrate her second birthday.

Donna MacKay had a “wild” weekend, working the busy trade fair in Stettler last Saturday. The P&H Elevator Preservation Society booth was busy accepting donations and handing out information.

The elevator is open for coffee Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings each week. Tours are available.

Donna also took in the Louisiana Hay Ride Concert Sunday night, which also brought in funds for the painting project at the P&H elevator this summer.

Donna and Betty Hadwin travelled to Red Deer on Monday to help work the casino for Heritage Place (the Gadsby church building).

The music festival saw Shayla Derr take gold Saturday night. Her group (Shayla and Keyonna Derr, the Diegel girls and Mackenzie Hankins) received high gold in their dance competition.

Congratulations to all the girls and their instructor, Callie Turigan of Raw Talent Studio.

Residents are reminded that the 4-H bottle drive is set for Saturday, April 20. Anyone wishing to have bottle pick-up is asked to phone Corina at 403-574-2183 or Denis at 403-574-2432. Leave a message.

Cash bingo, weather-permitting, is scheduled for Saturday night, April 20. Doors open at 7 p.m. The loonie pot is growing. Cake and coffee are on tap for halftime.

Sympathies go out to the Craig family on the death of Donna (Craig) Hannah of Didsbury. Donna was predeceased by her parents, Duncan and Muriel. Duncan grew up in the Gadsby area, as one of six brothers.
