Population explosion in Gadsby

In the past year or so, the population of Gadsby has gone from 29 to 59.

Gadsby/Westwoods

In the past year or so, the population of Gadsby has gone from 29 to 59. In 1998 the water was put in, making it available to all residences and public buildings. The Saturday morning town meeting at the bank building was well attended. The sole purpose of the meeting was to inform residents on the requirements and cost ideas for the sewer project. The town council announced that they are hoping to be able to tie into the residences by early November. A relief to many! Coffee and donuts were served.

Saturday evening saw 23 persons at the bank building for the monthly cash bingo. The Loonie pot did not go and is now sitting at $137.50! Next bingo, Oct.18.

Vic and Barb Carey have returned from a week of relaxation in Fairmont Hot Springs, taking their trailer and enjoying a last of summer camping trip. On the way, they stopped at the Ice Fields, but with heavy snow coming down, they left the famous Skywalk for next time! While in Fairmont, Barb’s cousin Roberta visited them. Then on the way home, Vic and Barb stopped in Stavely to visit Vic’s brother Brent.

A belated birthday celebration for Fred Entwisle saw Kyle and Leigha, Tom and Angela and Kalli; Haley and Cooper all home for a barbeque and birthday cake (made and decorated by granddaughter Cooper). Also, Fred’s sister Thelma Davits was there from Kimberley, B.C. Thelma has been home for a couple weeks visiting family (Mareena and Jason and their families) as well as friends (I joined her Sunday for dinner the “The Other Side” restaurant). Great to have you home, Thelma!

Bill and Joyce Hansel helped daughter Sandy celebrate her birthday on Saturday night at Sandy’s with family and friends, supper and cake. Then Sunday Bill and Joyce drove to Cadogan to daughter Mary Lou and Stan Botting’s where they enjoyed the day at the lake at their cabin. All the Botting family stopped in at one time or another, including baby Brett.

Did anyone spot Donna Taggart and her brother Jim a week ago Wednesday on the six o’clock news, CTV with Darryl Janz?

Gloria and Stan Deigel were at Richelle and Greg’s for grandson Alexander Skocdopole’s fifteenth birthday. Also there were aunts and uncles, Tasha and Aaron and family; Arden and Deanne and girls; Wade and Ybiett and family as well as grandparents Jim and Dixie Skocdopole.
