Warm weather, south winds and so far no mosquito problem.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — Warm weather, south winds and so far no mosquito problem.

Sam Wilson is home from a lengthy recovery after an injury, hip surgery and hospital stay; good to see you out and about!

Bill and Joyce Hansel continued a tradition they started several years ago. Joyce baked a birthday cake, they headed over to Musgroves on Sunday night to help young Tate Musgrove celebrate his fourth birthday. Happy birthday, Tate!

Keeping with the birthday theme; Gloria and Stan Diegel helped granddaughters Isabella (3) and Kassandra (15) celebrate their birthdays with a belated birthday party at their new home. Hosting were mom and dad (Ybiett and Wade). Wade is home on an extended break as he was one of the many workers north of Fort McMurray that had to be evacuated. Also at the party were Tasha and family (Aaron had to work) ; Richelle and Greg and Family. Happy birthday, girls!

Gloria and Ybiett, Richelle, Deanne and friend Lesley Hennel were off to Red Deer to enjoy a pedicure. They were later joined by Corina Derr and her daughters RayAnn and Shayla. It was supper at Moxie’s then on to the Long Island Medium show. Corina was enjoying a belated birthday gift from her family.

June 9 is the day of the fruit tray from the County of Stettler and Village of Gadsby to honor our senior citizens; to be held at Heritage Place (Church building) in Gadsby 2 p.m. There will be coffee. A time to visit and enjoy the afternoon. Tell your neighbours, everyone welcome.

Granddaughter Bailey Heer and mom Jewel was among the Kindergarten 2016/17 to attend open house at the Botha School Friday morning. Lincoln Robinson from Gadsby was also there with her mom, Tarah. There will be about 12 new faces at school next year.

Sympathies go out to Max and Lorraine Potter on the recent passing of Max’s brother Lyle Potter. Also to his wife Joyce and their family Ron (Marilyn), Glen (Nancy), Roxie (Terry), and Lori Potter. Lyle and Max grew up north of Gadsby riding their horses to the Ingleton country school, helping on the family farm (parents Bert and Mazie). This carried on into his adult years, milking cows, haying, silaging and farming, before retiring and moving to Red Deer. Lyle and Joyce returned to Stettler recently, where Lyle passed away in heritage House. Joyce resides in Paragon Place.
