Since the early 1980s, Gadsby has had Santa Claus Day, a tradition started by Bill and Phyllis Morlock.

Since the early 1980s, Gadsby has had Santa Claus Day, a tradition started by Bill and Phyllis Morlock.

When they no longer could do it, the Gadsby District Hobby Club took over and for 17 years they hosted Santa Day. It’s great to see the Gadsby Community Hall Board hosting their second annual Santa Day last Saturday at the hall. Lawrence Clarke family were seen with their team of horses and wagon (weather being fantastic), taking children for rides through Gadsby.

Percy and Paulette Heer, Jack and Melanie Ross were among the 34 people gathered at the Stettler Community Hall Saturday night for the turkey supper hosted by the Erskine E Free Church. A wonderful Christmas supper followed by a must see and hear Brian Doerksen concert of old and new Christmas songs.

Gloria and Stan Diegel helped grandson Elliot Skocdopole celebrate his 10th birthday on Saturday night with a family birthday supper. Joining them at Greg and Richelle’s were Tasha and Aaron and family, Arden and Deanne and family, Ybiett and family and also grandparents Jim and Dixie Skocdopole. Happy birthday, Elliot!

Bill and Joyce Hansel have enjoyed a week of company with neice Donna and Markus coming Thursday, Marie Vance, then Dewey and Joanne Hoopfer on the weekend.

Vic and Barb Carey were thrilled to have grandchildren Tori and Jonah Jarmin on the weekend. They baked cookies, helped put up the Christmas tree and decorate. Joining them for the day, Sunday,were brother Taylor and his wife Olha from Edmonton.
