Santa Claus is still in the area! He will be at Westwoods Agriplex on Sunday, Dec. 21 at 2 p.m. Wayne Bignell will have pony and wagon rides as well (weather permitting) Dress warm. Visit Santa, bring your camera.

Congratulations to Curtis Cassidy, who achieved a 3.3 time last week at the NFR in Vegas. Hope someone got that on video. A total WOW moment.

Get well wishes to Shayla Derr, who is recovering at home, from foot surgery in Calgary.

Excitement in the family when Dale and Wilda Nichols won a trip for four to Mexico through the lottery. Way to go guys!

The Big Knife 4H club worked hard and had a very successful tire roundup. They netted 1009 tires in one stop, thanks to Ryan and Tera Schilling. It took two Saturdays to complete the job.

A “special” birthday for Dale (Heer) Van Straten was held Saturday night starting at the Club Café in Stettler for supper. Joining her were husband Eldon, daughters Shandele and Ted; Michelle and Jody, son Pernell and Carla and their families totalling 10.

Meanwhile friends and family from the Fenn and Gadsby areas converged on the Stettler Bowling Alley to await their arrival at 8 p.m. Once Dale walked in, she realized it was a surprise birthday party. Happy birthday, Dale!

Santa Day in Gadsby was a huge success with lots of kids, wagon rides, Santa came on a quad (no snow for reindeer and sleigh), there were crafts and cookie decorating, and really good weather for the day. Big thanks to the Village of Gadsby, Sobeys in Stettler and Score Projects Inc. for their help as well.
