Local dancers take stage in Disneyland


Endiang Enterprise

Some local dancers and their families returned Saturday from a week spent in Disneyland, where they performed on the Disneyland stage.

Jordanna and Carly Christie and Jesse and Sydney Jack were among the 17 dancers from the Hanna Dance Association troupe that performed twice in Disneyland and also had the opportunity to be involved in two dance workshops with the Disney instructors.

Others attending with an Endmoor connection were the Hanna instructors Katie (nee Knowles) Campbell and Nadine (nee Gallagher) Hein, and their daughters, as well as dancer Kaylee Mohl and her mother Shawna (nee Keith) Mohl.

The local parents and grandparents along on the trip included Theresa Christie, Rod and Krissy Jack and Emma, Roxy Gallagher, Patsy Gallagher and Shannon Knowles.

It was a thrilling experience for the dancers and something they will never forget. While in California, many toured the local attractions.

Happy 50th birthday wishes go to Kim Wasdal, who celebrated the big Five-O on Aug. 23. Hope you enjoy hitting the half century mark, Kim.

Congratulations to Bob and Eileen Green on the arrival of their great-grandson, Dominic Dwayne Potter, on Aug. 23, weighing eight pounds and 13 ounces. Travis and Tonille Potter are the proud parents while the proud grandpa is Dwayne Potter.

MLA Jack Hayden, along with Keith and Ann Blackman and Les and Rosemary Stulberg from this area, were among the guests at a farewell appreciation dinner for Premier Ed Stelmach and his wife in Edmonton on Wednesday evening.

Doug and Deanna Johnson had their granddaughters, Natalie and Holly Johnson of Medicine Hat, staying with them last week.

Swathing has begun in the district on what looks to be a promising crop. All we need now is some good harvest weather.

Remember the bridal shower for Kary Swedberg, future bride of Tyson Keith, will be Sept. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Byemoor hall.

Friends of Diane Ronald of Hanna will be interested in knowing she has been nominated for UFA’s volunteer award — Small Town Heroes. If Diane gets the most votes, a local charitable cause will receive a few thousand dollars and Paul Brandt will perform a concert locally.

To help Diane win this honour for her volunteer efforts, simply cast your vote online on the UFA website at www.ufa.com. Supporters are allowed one vote per day.
