It’s been a fast turnaround for WPCA chuckwagon judge Kevin Baird, as he travelled first to High River last weekend, and then on to the Ponoka Stampede this week.

From Ponoka, he will be heading to the 100thanniversary edition of the Calgary Stampede.

Congratulations to Halkirk and Donalda for their upcoming centennial birthday parties.

Get-well wishes go out to Jim Carrothers, who is recuperating from hip-replacement surgery in Red Deer regional hospital.

Jack and Shirley (Chick) Nixon of Athabasca are home for a week, taking in retired UFA alumni Barry Brown’s 80th birthday Saturday in Stettler and staying for the Nixon family reunion this weekend, as well as visiting numerous friends and relations.

Percy and Paulette Heer also attended Barry’s birthday and pot-luck supper.

Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren went to Wainwright on Sunday, taking in the chuckwagon races for the final day of competition.

Mark your calendar for July 21 for the next monthly supper of the Gadsby District Hobby Club. On the menu for July is a summer barbecue of hamburgers, hotdogs and smokeys. The cash bingo is at 7:30, with the loonie pot still growing.
