Joyce Hansel, Sandy and Shaya drove to Cadogan on Saturday to Joyce’s great-grandson Dustin’s baby shower. There were about 20 ladies present and they were also able to see Ryan, Leila and Bently, as well as Stan.

On the way, Joyce, Sandy and Shayla also stopped at Amisk to visit at Wendy and Len Stankeivech’s home, where grandson Curtis and Corinne Trennery and baby Cadee were there visiting, and helping Corinne’s parents build a deck.

On Monday night, Bill and Joyce headed over to the Musgroves’ place with birthday cake in hand to help celebrate Tate’s first birthday, which was this Tuesday.

Frank and Betty Hadwin attended the interment service at Consort cemetery for Frank’s brother, John, who passed away earlier this spring. Then they went out to Frank’s nephew’s place for a family gathering and barbecue.

On Sunday, Betty and daughter Mary drove to Edmonton to visit West Edmonton Mall. They took in the Princess Diana collection, which included Diana’s wedding dress and other gowns. Betty said the wedding dress was much prettier in person than it appeared on TV.
