Seniors to celebrate birthdays together, dump hours to switch to winter mode

A beautiful wedding ceremony took place at the Stettler Community Hall on Saturday for Amanda Heintz and Cory Beausoliel.

A beautiful wedding ceremony took place at the Stettler Community Hall on Saturday for Amanda Heintz and Cory Beausoliel. Amanda and her family lived in the Gadsby area while she was growing up, with her parents Perry and Marilyn Heintz. A large number of Abel and Heintz family from Saskatchewan were in attendance as well as family and friends from the Gadsby and Stettler areas. Congratulations to Amanda and Cory who make their home in Sedgewick, where Amanda runs a day care.

There will be a birthday celebration at Westwoods on Sunday, Oct. 11 to help Jim Carothers celebrate his 80th birthday. The family would like to invite friends and neighbours to please come. Everyone is welcome. Cake cutting will be at 3 p.m. His brother Joe Carothers of Rimbey will be there and having his 99th birthday celebration with Jim. Happy birthday, Jim and Joe.

Frank Dahlgren, who has returned from a checkup in Calgary has been given a good report but must still be on his back in Stettler hospital for four more weeks. Hang in there, Frank.

Our secretary, Lavonne Smith would like to remind everyone that the Gadsby dump hours will swing into winter mode soon. This Wednesday, Oct. 7 will be the last open day until spring. For the winter, the dump will be open only on Saturday afternoons.

Smitty and Lavonne enjoyed a five-day visit from Smitty’s brother Ralph and friend Olive from Ottawa, Ontario. While here, they toured around North Gadsby/Halkirk area where many years before, Ralph hauled coal from the Muncy Mine. At 82 years of age, Ralph has many pleasant memories of his years here.

Stan and Gloria Diegel enjoyed five days, earlier last month, with Tasha and Aaron and boys, camping in Bonnyville. Aaron works part of his time in the Bonnyville area.

Make your calendar for Oct. 24, the next Gadsby District Hobby Club monthly supper. There will be a variety of dishes, including ham, meatball casserole and maybe a hint of German for Oktoberfest. And yes, this will be the fourth Saturday of the month, but it will give us time to recuperate from Thanksgiving on the 12th and gear up for the Santa Claus Day on Dec. 5. Cash bingo will be as usual on Oct. 24 with the loonie pot growing. Come enjoy a fun evening.

Another event to mark on your calendars is the Omega Circle Annual Bazaar. This happens to fall on Oct. 31, so maybe we will see a few ghosts and goblins at the bazaar. Bazaar starts at 2 p.m.
