Many recuperations underway

We say goodbye to January, which turned out to be a spring-like month. Great for travel and it shortened winter for us.

We say goodbye to January, which turned out to be a spring-like month. Great for travel and it shortened winter for us.

I’ve just returned from Medicine Hat after knee replacement surgery. Very successful. A big thank you to Dr. Riaz, nurses and staff there. I had no idea it was such a large hospital. While there, Percy stayed with his uncle Alvin and Rose Shearer. We came home last Sunday, water running, felt like spring.

Get well wishes to Markus Stadelmann, who is recovering from back surgery. and to Kevin Baird who is recovering from skin graft surgery under both eyes.

Bill and Joyce Hansel, along with Doreen and Harry Martin, Bernard and Lois Garland have been busy helping celebrate two special anniversaries.

Happy anniversary to Gordie and Shirley Reynolds for 57 years, January 24; and to Joe and Maxine Hansel, January 25 for their 59th anniversary. Bill and Joyce also had dinner at Marie Vance’s with Margaret Connon, Carol and Vi there as well.

Richelle and Greg Skocdopole hosted a double birthday party for Bridget (Jan 4, 12 years old) and her brother Chandler (January 24, 14 years old). There to help them were Nana and Papa (Gloria and Stan), Ybiett and family, Arden and Deanne and girls, Tasha and family.

Jasmin and Kassie Diegel played in a “Round the Clock” soccer tournament in Camrose over the weekend. Kassie’s team won silver and Kassie was named most valuable player.

Steele and Cole Nichol also participated in the tournament and received “the Gold Boot” for most goals.

Happy 80th birthday wishes going out to DeLores Duris; and get well wishes to Beatrice Selinger who is staying with her daughter Michelle in Stettler, recovering from gall bladder surgery.
