Gadsby was a hub of activity this past week

There was a cribbage tournament at the Heritage Place on Wednesday, June 7.

Gadsby was a hub of activity this past week with a crib tournament at Heritage Place on Wednesday. All present enjoyed an afternoon of cribbage and visiting. Yvonne Coleman had the best score of the day with Joyce Hansel taking second place and Margaret Connon third. The next cribbage tournament is planned for Thursday, June 15, at 1 p.m. All are welcome to attend. Then on Thursday county councillor Greg Jackson presented our seniors, in appreciation of Seniors’ Week, with a fruit tray. This too was held at Heritage Place. Around 12 people were in attendance.

Another week well into Spring, with at least an inch of rain to settle the dust.

This is a time for new life, including babies! Congratulations to great grandma Marie Vance on the arrival of her first great granddaughter, Tayva Joy. The proud parents, Melanie Baird and Ryan Madden welcomed their daughter on June 2, born in Red Deer, weighing 7lbs. 2 oz. Mom and baby doing very well.

Best wishes Jordan and Kelli Hoopfer on the birth of their son, Daycen Dewey, born May 17, weighing six pounds six ounces. A brother for Rylen. Proud grandparents are Dewey and Joanne Hoopfer, Ron Thorson and Shelly Lepard. Great grandparents Elpha (Hoopfer) and Ron Senft.

Bill and Joyce Hansel had another busy week. On the weekend they watched great niece Jaiden Stotz play fastball, her team winning the tournament. Then on Thursday they were back in to watch great granddaughter Shaya play ball. Auntie Sue joined them for the afternoon. And congratulations to Donna and Markus Stadelmann on the arrival of their grandson James Kevin Stadelmann to parents, David and Trish. This is their second son. James was born June 5 and weighed 10 lbs. 9 oz. Pictures on Facebook confirm a real cutie!

Our granddaughter Josie Wideman earned top marks and a trophy for her dance competition, Dance Troop, and has been invited to a dance-off in Drumheller at the end of June.

Big Knife Park was the setting for an outdoor wedding on Saturday, June 3. The bride and groom, Terra Salmon and Wylee Heier exchanged vows in an open air service. Reception and dance followed at Westwoods Agrilot building. It was a lot of fun and catching up with friends and family. Wylee’s dad, Alfred grew up north of Gadsby.

Granddaughter Hannah Winter came home excited over a double soccer win at school. The Botha/Gadsby students took on Brownfield and Donalda, winning both games.
