Organizational skills needed for Christmas

Gadsby/Westwoods

The 94th annual Omega Circle bazaar and bake sale was a great success with 118 adults and children. It is always fun to see folks from far away coming home for the day. This year included Shirley (Chick) and Jack Nixon, Athabasca; Phyllis Chick Red Deer; Evelyn Miller, Calgary; Kelly Baird, Teresa and ken Schaub; Kay (Glasier) and Doug Hankinson, Wandering River; Annice (Haner) Erickson, Red Deer; as well as many dear friends from the nearby communities. The winners of all the prizes are listed elsewhere in the paper.

After the bazaar, Bill and Joyce Hansel headed to Provost to Curtis and Corinne Trennery’s to help great granddaughter Cadee celebrate her third birthday. All their great grandchildren were there. Bill and Joyce stayed overnight at daughter Mary Lou and Stan Botting in Cadogan , where grandson Jeff and Kathy joined them for breakfast before they returned home Sunday afternoon.

Also visiting and attending the bazaar from far away was Gloria Blumer of Dinsmore, Saskatchewan. Gloria was here visiting Tammy Hronek and family as well as Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren.

Happy 80th birthday to Smitty! Lavonne and Smitty along with Gordon Jackson, Duane Hronek, Barb and Lorne Nattestad celebrated with supper at The Otherside followed by Saturday supper at Jamie and Rowie Kobi with Gordie and Della Kobi; then on to Bill and Shirley Matier’s 50th anniversary.

Very glad to hear that Lynn Hansel is home recovering from back surgery and doing well. Way to go Lynn!

The Gadsby District Hobby Club is short on members. If there is to be a Santa Claus day this year, we need at least two people with organizational skills to step up and take over the planning of this event. Please call 403 574 2442 or 403 574 0000 a.s.a.p.

It is with a heavy heart that we lose another of our Gadsby seniors with the passing of Phyllis Robinson. Phyllis and Jim were a part of the community, working with the Omega Circle, Square dance, The United Church in Gadsby, 4H, just to name a few. They farmed four miles north of Gadsby for many years. Sincere sympathies to Jimaine, Norman, Debbie, Patty, Robert, Raymond, Betty Anne and Laurel and their families.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. in the Stettler Funeral Home.
