An exciting birthday for Joyce Hansel. Granddaughter Denee and Jason Davits had a baby girl, Laken Joyce on Thursday, Dec. 1, which was Joyce’s birthday.

Proud grandmothers are Sandra Trenerry and Thelma Davits.

Get well wishes to Velvet Nickerson who is in Castor hospital fighting double pneumonia. Hopefully she’s out by the time of this printing.
Percy and I drove past and through the alley past the Pothiers’ place in Gadsby a couple nights ago. I just have to say, if you haven’t seen their Christmas light display, you must! Turn up the alley to get the whole effect. They were still receiving Food Bank donations, made voluntarily. The Pothiers’ said, “We continue to see five or more cars a night during the week and often more on weekends, we are thrilled so many people are getting a chance to enjoy the lights. We’ve put up a couple new lights that were late arriving and we are excited and already planning additions for next year.”
I am hearing rumblings – there is a New Year’s Eve event happening at the Gadsby Hall this year. More details to come.
