Gardens show true colours at Westwoods bench fair

.

Gadsby / Westwoods

Although some of Alberta was hit with freezing temperatures last Wednesday night, Gadsby was a plus-2 C. It’s a sure sign autumn is on the way.

Gardens have been productive, which meant a successful bench fair at Westwoods last Wednesday. The junior exhibits took the show, both in quantity and quality. Congratulations to all who participated. And to Verna Mailer, who was acting judge.

Neal Walgenbach attended the WPCA chuckwagon finals at Drumheller. The WPCA gave an honourable mention to Neal and Lorna and daughter Melita.

Meanwhile, Lorna and Melita had returned from a fun trip to the U.S.

And get-well wishes to Lorna’s father, Lorne Wright, who has been in Stettler and Red Deer hospitals. He’s recovering nicely.

Joyce Hansel enjoyed Sunday visitors. Daughter Sandy was there and a surprise visit came from lifetime friend Marie (Miller) Vance of Bowden.

A baby shower for young Bailey Heer was held at the home of Tara Robinson in Gadsby last week. Jewel’s sister Sarah of Vermillion attended as friends gathered for refreshments and gift opening.

Mary Brennen is home from several days in Edmonton, visiting her sister.

Percy and Paulette Heer welcomed Sunday visitors, Alan and Vi Coultis of Camrose. Alan is Percy’s cousin.

Dates to remember this month are: Sept. 14 for the crib tournament at the church building, starting at 2 p.m. ($6 includes crib, prizes and lunch); and Sept. 17 for the Gadsby District Hobby Club’s annual beef supper at the Gadsby hall.
