Largest Halloween dance ever hosted at Westwoods Agriplex

The 90th annual Omega Circle Bazaar was held on Saturday afternoon with 110 adults and 26 children. The traditions started in 1920, after World War One with a tea and bake sale. Fancy work was added to the bazaar with knitting, tatting and sewing. Aprons were fought over! It is a great event for those who have moved away, to come home and visit with old friends. This year was no exception. It was great to see Elva (Walgenbach) McAllister, Joanne Robinson and the Starling sisters to name a few. Results of the draws are in the paper.

Grandparents John and Betty Anne Cassidy are pleased to welcome grandson Kayne John Shingoose into the family, Kayne was born in Red Deer Hospital weighing 7 lbs., 8 ozs. Congratulations to parents Shannon and Kyle Shingoose and family. Great-grandparents are Aleta and Charlie Cassidy and Phyllis Robinson.

Smitty and Lavonne motored to Maidstone, Sask. to help friends Thomas and Audrey Kitching celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary on Oct. 27. Smitty and Thomas ran the race circuit together for many years and have remained good friends ever since.

Fred and Velvet Entwistle headed to Didsbury last week to see Fred’s sister Kathy and Joey Priller and Tyler. While there they helped Kathy and Joey in their new bowling alley/cafeteria and enjoyed turkey supper after.

This Friday daughter Haley walked away from a severe rear-end collision outside of Botha when she was rear-ended by another vehicle. Best wishes to Haley, we were happy to hear no one was badly hurt.

Westwoods agriplex saw a huge crowd Saturday night with 90 children and over 200 adults present. The building was totally decorated with Halloween scenery, there were door prizes and costume judging and the young and old danced to the music provided by D.J. Barry Hill. This was reported to be the largest Halloween dance ever held there.
