Shepherds welcome baby son at Gadsby

Cathy Entwisle-Priller who has graduated from ABES (Alberta Business Education Services)

Have you ever noticed how the weather determines your activities? Here at home, the combines are back on the field, potatoes are being dug, the last of the veggies brought in. Those last minute paint jobs, raking of leaves, etc. But for eight employees from DNR Pressure Welding Ltd, Stettler, including Chance Derr of Gadsby, it’s pack up and fly to Turks and Caicos, south east of the Bahamas to help rebuild the power grid after hurricane Irma and Maria brought such devastation. This will not be a holiday, they are there for the long haul hoping to help restore electricity to thousands.

Barb and Vic Carey are home from spending time with Barb’s sister Laurie and Andy Brownlow in Chiliwack. B.C. They flew out September 19, returning on the 23. While there the four of them took in Bridal Veil Falls, Chiliwack Lake Day Park, had a traditional wiener roast and enjoyed Andy’s “world famous” pancakes. Barb reports it was a short but great visit.

Congratulations to Cathy Entwisle-Priller who has graduated from ABES (Alberta Business Education Services) at the Community College in Calgary. Cathy was part of the commencement ceremonies and banquet held at the Executive Hotel, Calgary. Cathy has certified as a health Care Aide and works at Padnoma Support Services in Olds, Alberta. Cathy and Joey lived in Gadsby several years before moving to Didsbury.

Joel and Kerri Shepherd are proud to announce the birth of their baby son, Corbin John Shepherd on Thursday, September 28, weighing seven pounds three ounces. Grandparents are Rick and Debbie Shepherd, Rodney and Karen Norman. Special mention to great grandparents Lawrence Clarke of Gadsby, Louise Shepherd, Stettler and Charlie and Aleta Cassidy of Westwoods. It’s reported this makes 41 great grandbabies for Charlie and Aleta. Congratulations to all!

Local students taking part in Stettler sports are Jack Blackmore who has joined the Stettler Panthers football team and took part in three winning games, back to back. Hannah Winter has joined the cross country running team at the Wm E Hay Secondary Campus, Stettler and took part in their first run on Thursday, September 28 in New Norway area. She ran the 2.2K and came in 17 out of 73! Congratulations. Closer to home, Bailey Heer and Lincoln Robinson took part in the Terry Fox run at the Botha School on Friday, September 29.

Sincere sympathies to the Payne, Quance and McKay families on the passing of Neil Payne. Neil grew up north west of Gadsby on the Payne farm, a son to Gladys (Quance) and Richard Payne. He was 77 years of age.
