Hadwin get-together draws a happy crowd



Hopefully it’s business as usual with our postal services back on track, and, yes… we did miss them.

Donna Mackay drove to Eaglesham, AB in the Peace Country to help her parents Gordon and Anne Donaldson celebrate their 65th anniversary on June 14. Donna’s sister and two brothers were there as well. This was the first time in 15 years they could all be there together. A family supper was held at Gordon and Anne’s home.

Percy and Paulette Heer were also away for the Father’s Day weekend, heading to Grande Prairie for for a wedding and family time with Percy’s cousin Keith and Glennys Adrian.

Betty and Frank Hadwin enjoyed a weekend celebration June 24-26 at the Gadsby Community Hall when their family came together to honour Frank and Betty on their golden wedding anniversary.

Daughters Margaret, Mary and Janet hosted a Saturday potluck supper where about 40 friends and family members gathered. Betty’s bridal dress and Frank’s wedding suit were on display as well as other memorabilia including her bride’s book. Betty’s brother said a few words before supper and cake cutting. Lots of photos were later taken.

Donna Mackay along with her fellow Heartland Bells hosted a huge gathering of Red Hat ladies in Stettler last week. Of the 160 ladies that were invited, 158 attended. A catered supper was enjoyed, but the highlight of the evening was the faux fashion show, in which Donna was a participant, showing off her pill box hat (use your imaginations). Much singing and laughter was shared.

Sympathies go to the Glasier family on the loss of Wayne’s aunt, Laura (Glasier) Bryenton. Laura was the last surviving sister to the late Adrian Glasier. She was born and raised in the Gadsby area. She later married Wendel Bryenton and resided in Edmonton until her passing at 99 years of age. Funeral services were held in Edmonton Saturday, June 25.

And we have lost another of our most senior Gadsby citizens. Isabel Stewart passed away last week in Castor hospital. Isabel was four years old when she and her family came to the Gadsby farm area. Isabel took her schooling at Big Knife, married Jack Stewart and became farm wife and mother of five. In her later years, moving into Gadsby, she enjoyed bingo and community work. She was especially remembered for her weekly home-baked cake she brought to coffee time at the bank building. And was honored last year at Gadsby’s 100th by the Gadsby District Hobby Club. Heartfelt sympathies to out to her remaining daughters Sheila and Sherry and son Alan along with all her extended family and friends. Funeral services were held Tuesday, June 28 in Castor. Burial in Gadsby Omega Cemetery and lunch at the Gadsby hall.

Isabel was 96 years of age.
