Good times aplenty Saturday in Gadsby

.

Gadsby / Westwoods

Harvest is underway, but that didn’t stop 70 people from coming out to supper at the Gadsby community hall Saturday night. Included were door prizes and a raffle, good food and an evening of visiting.

And 30 of those same happy folks headed over to the bank building to try their luck at bingo. The loonie pot remained untouched.

Birthday greetings go out to Alexander Skocdopole, who turned 12 last Friday. Saturday night, all the family enjoyed a birthday supper at Greg and Richelle’s place.

Get-well wishes to Shirley Jacques, who is dealing with health issues and has been in hospital.

Betty Hadwin’s daughter Margaret and family dropped n for a few hours Saturday night, taking in the supper and even helping with the clean-up. That’s the kind of company to get.

Margaret and family have recently moved to Forestburg.

There was a very good turnout last Wednesday afternoon for the first crib tournament at the church building.

Myrt Hoopfer walked away with a perfect score. Mary Holtz was runner-up and Gordon Jackson earned the hard-luck (boobie) prize.

The next tournament will be next Wednesday (Sept. 28), starting at 1:30 p.m. No need to find a partner to come — one will be provided for you.

Margery and Wayne Glasier enjoyed a much needed holiday after their hard work caretaking the Gadsby cemetery so successfully this summer. They spent a few days with Wayne’s sister Kay and Doug Hankinson at Wandering River.

The Gadsby Omega Circle met Thursday evening in the new home of Deborah and Harold Hansel.

Plans are underway for the 91st annual bazaar, which will be held Oct. 29 at the Gadsby community hall. For those who wish to donate prizes for the event, please let the women know a week or so in advance. That helps with the final preparations.

Sincere sympathies to Vic and Barb Carey and family on the recent and very sudden passing of Vic’s mom, Florence Carey, at her home. She had recently been visiting with Vic and Barb and was enjoying good health up to the time of her passing.
