Gadsby / Westwoods
It was a beautiful sunny day on July 16 when over 160 family members and friends gathered at the home of Larry and Sheila Clarke in Gadsby to witness the marriage of daughter Lyndsey and Clay Gordon.
Parents Sheila and Larry Clarke, Randy Gordon of Manitoba and Diane and Ron Ford of Saskatchewan as well as grandparents Lawrence Clarke, Gadsby, Fred and Evelyn Milner of Stettler, Ewald Silzer of Saskatchewan and Richard Gordon, Sr. of Manitoba were all there. Following the service with Michelle Pinder officiating, the bride and groom exited the service in the family team and wagon. The reception and dance was held at the Stettler Community Hall with 270 plus guests in attendance.
On Sunday, brunch and gift opening was held at Larry and Sheila’s. Best wishes to the happy couple.
Westwoods was also the setting for a local wedding party. The couple had been married in Saskatchewan last month.
The Gadsby District Hobby Club, along with friends who help support the club, spent two days volunteering in Red Deer Cash Casino. The funds from this will help renovate and fix the north wall of the bank building.
Because of vacationers, haying time and being just plain busy, there will be no supper Saturday night at the bank building. The BBQ has been postponed until August 20 at its usual date and time.
There will be cash bingo this Saturday night. Doors will open early, snacks will be served.
Gloria and Stan Diegel, along with all the family helped twins Ella and Eva Diegel celebrate their first birthday on July 9.
Congratulations to John and Jewel Heer on the birth of their baby girl, Bailey Mae, six pounds four ounces on July 16 at the Stettler Hospital. Grandparents Percy and Paulette Heer and great-grandmother Iona Berg and sisters Brook, Samantha and Hanna Winter were very happy to meet their new relative.
Diane Baird and daughter Mary Beth flew to Winnipeg then drove on into Ontario where they surprised Diane’s parents at their annual summer get away. They experienced very hot weather with the humidex over 40 and temperatures in the high 30’s. Maybe our cooler, wet weather hasn’t been so bad after all!
