GADSBY/WESTWOODS — The Easter, Spring Break week allowed for travel and visits around the community.
DeLores Duris came “home” for a few days, staying with Phyllis Epp in Stettler and Hazel (Thomas) and Harold Haldal, Gadsby. While here, she met with several friends, visited Paragon Place, and a quick visit from Paulette at Hazel’s where they all admired Hazel and Harold’s new kitchen reno.
Fred and Velvet Entwisle hosted an Easter/birthday party last weekend. All the family arrived in Gadsby for good food, lots of outdoor games and birthday cake and presents for Kamryn Bigney (Tom and Angela’s youngest) who turned one. Then daughter Haley and Nick and their girls headed to Kimberley B.C. for a week of visiting. They stayed with Nick’s parents in Cranbrooke; visited grandparents Ben and Linda; Pat and Shirley on Haley’s side of the family as well as aunts and uncles, cousins and friends.
Velvet’s niece Veronica stayed overnight recently while in the process of moving.
