It’s a girl! Rowyn Velvet Kathleen Bigney , born October 28, seven pounds, seven and a half ounces, 19 inches. Halley and Nick (mom and dad) are doing well. A sister for Cooper. And, of course, proud grandparents, Fred and Velvet Entwisle.

Fred arrived home Thursday, just in time to enjoy his new granddaughter. Then it was off to a Gadsby village meeting; the annual organizational meeting. The council remains the same: Mayor Laura Kelly-Stevenson, Deputy Mayor Brian Burk, Councillor Fred Entwisle. Secretary Carla Tuck. The sewer project is making progress with the main line in place, thanks to Ernie Gendre and his crew.

We welcome three new families into Gadsby; Greg Chick, Dave Belaire, Kyle Selki.

Halloween saw many ghosts and goblins out. Frank and Eleanor had 14 at their door, Bill and Joyce 10 and Gloria and Stan saw 28. Donna McKay, along with her fellow Heartland Belles, dressed for the occasion and “painted the town”. They started with a Halloween party at the Anglican Church, where they also celebrated Joyce Gordon’s birthday; then an hour at the Legion, Stettler Hotel and on to Big Valley.

They are without their queen at present as Joanne Vallet is in Red Deer hospital recovering from a broken hip. We send get well wishes to her.

Birthday greetings to Wade Diegel, who celebrated with his family, joining them for birthday cake were Arden and Deanne and family, Richelle and Greg and family as well as Stan and Gloria Diegel. Birthday wishes also go out to Claudia Care (16) on Oct. 25; Ray Stevenson (70) on the 25th; Grant Beleau (56) on the 28th; Vern Payne Nov. 4 and happy Anniversary to Percy and Paulette (42 years) on Nov. 4.

Eleanor Dahlgren attended the baby shower for her great grandson Nash Sorensen on Saturday afternoon at the Big Valley School Several friends and family helped celebrate.

Frank and Eleanor were among the friends and family who gathered at “The Hub” Saturday night to help Vern and Kay Hanson celebrate their 60th anniversary. All the Hanson family were there. Other Gadsby friends who attended were Gordon Jackson, Lawrence Clarke, Larry and Sheila, and family, a program at 7:30 including a Powerpoint presentation, along with lunch and visiting. Happy anniversary Vern and Kay!

A reminder, bingo at the Bank Building November 15. More details to follow.
