Red Hats Ladies strike again!

GADSBY/WESTWOODS

Smitty and Lavonne Smith enjoyed a weeklong visit from Smitty’s niece Leene and John Gales from Earlville, New York last week. On the way home they ran into a bad storm and had to stay over in Brooks, Alberta. Smitty also took his annual four day holiday to Saskatchewan. He stayed with friends and attended the horse races in North Battleford. Lavonne reports plans are under way for the repair of Gadsby streets after a hard winter.

A surprise 60th birthday party was held at Westwoods on June 4 for Norman Robinson. About 100 family and friends enjoyed a pig roast, lots of laughs and visiting. Happy birthday Norman!

Thelma Davits spent a few days back home, visiting son Jason and family, daughter Mareena and family as well as many other family and friends.

Aunt Mary Brennen traveled to Edmonton for the weekend to visit her sister Lillian. And Haley and daughter Cooper took in a day at the Tyrell museum in Drumheller, where Cooper loved the “horsies”, a.k.a. dinosaurs! Wanting to bring them all home!

Donna Mckay, along with her Red Hat Ladies, known as the Heartland Belles, sang to a full house on the weekend at the Stettler Rec Centre, where they helped Carolyn and Jack Schultz celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. J

There will be a graveside service for Manuel Heer on June 10 at the Omega cemetery, Gadsby at 11 a.m. Lunch will be served at the Gadsby bank building.
