A nice crowd enjoyed the pancake breakfast served up by members of Gadsby Heritage Society.

Names drawn for the door prizes were Shirley Coleman and Jack Ross. Clarice and Dwayne Litke of Sherwood Park helped at the breakfast, while visiting relatives for the weekend.

Saturday night saw 47 family members at the bank building for the monthly supper. Cash bingo followed, with 25 adults trying for the loonie pot, unsuccessfully. The next supper and bingo will be July 21.

Velvet Nickerson returned home last week from a weekend in Salmo (West Kootenays), where she attended her niece Jillian Hearn’s Grade 12 graduation. Jillian has received six scholarships and plans to go on to Kamloops/Okanagan College for one year, and then Simon Fraser University to study psychology and criminology.

Because of bad weather, Velvet’s flight was cancelled and she caught a ride to Cranbrook with Jillian’s sister, Sarah, and Kayle, from where she was able to get a flight back to Calgary.

Meanwhile, Mareena Davits drove to Calgary to pick Velvet up, having time to stop for coffee with her aunt Kathy Prillar in Didsbury.

Frank and Betty Hadwin spent Father’s Day weekend at Big Knife Provincial Park, where they were joined by daughter Janet and Dale and her son Chris and his family from Drayton Valley, as well as daughter Margaret and her daughter Christyn and grandson Jace from Forestburg.

It was a great weekend!

Gloria and Stan Diegel helped grandson Clyde Cordell celebrate his fifth birthday with mom and dad, Tasha and Aaron, and his brother Mac at Pelican Point.

It was a camping party with Auntie Richelle and Uncle Greg and family, cousins Cassie and Jasmine Diegel, Uncle Arden and Auntie Deanne and girls, Grandpa Gordie Cordell of Halkirk and Grandma Evelyn and Rick Hamilton of The Pass all joining them. Auntie Ybiett joined them Saturday for the birthday party.

Mark your calendar for next Tuesday, June 26, for the next cribbage tournament at Gadsby Heritage Place, starting at 1:30 p.m. You don’t have to have a partner to play. All are welcome.

It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.
