Labour Day tourney turns into ‘a big hit’

The hot summer days have helped to get a good start on the harvest.

The hot summer days have helped to get a good start on the harvest. Combines are at work and a lot of grain has already been taken off the fields.

The women at Heritage Place in Gadsby have found a set of keys, possibly to a suitcase. These were found shortly after the Decoration Day breakfast. Please call 403-742-3478 if they belong to you.

Sunday night, Percy and Paulette Heer, along with Barry and Lorna Brown, Jeanne Beisel and Frieda Turigan, joined Doug and Shirley Mckay at their home for a pot-luck supper and sing-a-long and to welcome home John and Laurie Watton, who are back, if only for a short visit. They return to their missionary work in Ghana (Africa) at the end of this week.

Get-well wishes to Ron Robinson, who is in Edmonton hospital, Maxine Hansel in the Stettler hospital, and to Gene Derr in Calgary Foothills Hospital. Gene is recovering from open-heart surgery and hopes to be back in Red Deer hospital shortly.

The annual Labour Day ball tournament was a big hit. It was enjoyed, despite heavy clouds and wind at times. With seven teams participating, the winners of the A finals were No Gloves, No Love from Three Hills; the B final winners were Haner’s Hustlers of Stettler and the C final champions were Wolf Pak from Gadsby.

The community was shocked and saddened with the death of Wayne Ganshirt. Wayne grew up in Gadsby and Edmonton, returning to the family farm north of Gadsby for several years as a young married man.

Wayne and Gretha, Trish and Kerri Ann, moved to Red Deer in 1979, where they made their home. Wayne fought cancer valiantly for close to a year and passed away the end of August. His funeral was in Red Deer on Monday at the First Christian Reform Church. He will be buried in the Ganshirt family plot, Omega Cemetery, Gadsby.

Sympathies to Gretha and family, Wayne’s sisters Barb and Vic Carey, Gadsby; Leslie and Dwayne, Laurie and Andy, Kim, and brother Ken and Elaine, as well as all his nieces and nephews.

Sympathies go out to Judy Kromm, Allan and their family on the passing of Judy’s father, Frank Storek.
