Mild weather helping put up Christmas decorations in Gadsby

Ladies of the Gadsby District Hobby Club have been busy selling raffle tickets for the upcoming 14th annual Santa Claus Day on Dec. 4. Mark that date on your calendar.

Santa will arrive shortly after 2 p.m.

Candy bags, face painting, hay rides, hot chocolate and snacks will be offered during the day.

Then it’s over to the community hall for a turkey and ham supper and dessert smorgasbord. Lots of pail prizes will be won as well as the main raffle draws, door prizes and much more. This will be followed by a turkey and ham Bingo back at the Gadsby Bank Building.

Early bird games start at 7:30 p.m. And the loonie pot will be worth your while.

A reminder, the monthly supper at the Bank Building will not be held in November.

Cash Bingo will be held as usual on Nov. 20. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Did everyone remember to set their clocks back one hour on the weekend?

This is my favourite time, when I get my hour back.

The weather has been great and several people report putting up their outside Christmas decorations, taking advantage of the mild temperatures.

Alicia Glasier held a Scrapbooking fun day in the Gadsby Bank Building on Nov. 6 with five other ladies present.

This is a great way to catch up on all those summer pictures taken.

Alicia will host the next session on Dec. 11.

She will also host a home-based Christmas sale on Nov. 19 in Stettler at the Parish Hall from 2 to 8 p.m.

Get-well wishes to Connie (Rushton) Williams, who is in Stettler Hospital.

Connie is one of Stettler’s most senior persons who enjoyed being in the Village of Gadsby centennial parade this summer.

Several anniversaries to mention –

Gene and Darlene Deer celebrated on Nov. 3, followed by Percy and Paulette (38 years) on Nov. 4 and Terry and Daphne Ziegler who celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary.

Best wishes to all.

Bill and Joyce Hansel drove to Cadogan on Nov. 7 to visit their daughter Mary Lou Botting and to enjoy their great-granddaughter Bentley, who is now five months old.

Back home and Gordie and Shirley Reynolds were over and I’m told the women won the cribbage games…way to go, girls!
