Halloweeen dance at Westwoods

rcle Bazaar which will be held Saturday, Oct. 31 at the Gadsby Community Hall. The bake and craft table sales start at 2 p.m. There will be a fish pond for the kids, popcorn and kid’s raffles, a guessing game and numerous pail draws as well as the main raffle draw that has been on sale all summer. Draws will be made at 3:30 p.m. Cake, lemon sauce, strawberries and coffee will be served.

This Saturday, Oct. 24 is the next monthly supper at the bank building. A choice of ham, meatballs, beef, baked potatoes, salads and veggies, homemade biscuits, and a yummy homemade dessert. Can’t miss it. Cash bingo to follow and a growing loonie pot.

Jim and Ethel Baird enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at their daughter Leigh’s in Botha along with Adrianne and Jordan; James and Dana and family.

About 40 family members were together at Westwoods for Jim Carother’s 90th birthday. A good crowd of well wishers attended the afternoon open house and cake cutting. A pleasant way to celebrate Thanksgiving in the community.

Percy and Paulette hosted Thanksgiving on Sunday with their family, John Heer, Curtis and Christy Wideman and family, Iona Berg, Lorraine Hankins, MacKenzie and Justin as well as Barry and Lorna Brown. Lots of food, laughter and games.

Get well wishes go out to Marina Hansel, who is in Calgary hospital and to Delores Duris who has returned from Calgary hospital, to Len Schochenmaier, who is home after spending 10 days in Stettler hospital, and also to Frank Dahlgren and Glen Nixon, who have been in hospital for several weeks and sympathies to Vern Dempsey and family on the sudden death of wife May. We always enjoyed Vern and May coming to the suppers in Gadsby and supporting the community.

Gordie and Shirley Reynolds had the family home for Thanksgiving. Karen and family as well as Kathy and Tim from Edmonton. Then Tuesday, Shirley and Gordie motored to Edmonton, returning on Wednesday.

Bob and Betty Hankins arrived in the area on Friday, stopping to visit several friends and relatives. They picked up Bob’s sister Iona Berg from Heart Haven Lodge and she too spent several days at the farm with Paulette and Percy. Others Bob and Betty visited were Gloria and Stan Diegel, Dwight and Iva Lee Quance, John and Lorraine Hankins (and enjoyed birthday cake with great-nephew Justin Hankins), Jean Lindstrom, Earl Robinson, to name a few.

Don’t forget, there will be a family Halloween dance at Westwoods on Oct. 30, 7 to 11 p.m. with Barry Hill entertaining. Costume contests and refreshments as well.

A reminder that coffee time at the bank building is still a good place to be on Wednesdays. Coffee is ready by 2 p.m. and usually a homemade dessert to be had. Come enjoy.

Betty Hadwin enjoyed a three day cross stitch retreat at the Saint Anne Ranch in Trochu on the weekend. This was their 10th annual retreat and Betty has been there for all of them.

There were 14 ladies present and it’s like “coming home to your favourite relatives.”

A reminder that flu season is upon us. Wash your hands frequently, get plenty of rest and get your flu shot. The regular annual flu shot clinic will be held in the Stettler Community Hall Oct. 28 and 29 from 1 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. More details regarding this H1N1 vaccination will be coming in November.
