Ski hill alive with joyful sounds of 4-H members

A good way to fight the winter blues is to visit your friends and neighbours.

Percy and I enjoyed a few of those events with Canasta at our home with friends Fred and Velvet Entwisle. Then we went into Stettler on Sunday for cribbage with Barry and Lorna Brown.

It could be noted that on both occasions, the women rocked!

The Diegel family gathered at Wade and Ybiett’s place last Saturday night to help Jasmine celebrate her ninth birthday. Tasha and Aaron and family were there, along with Richelle and Greg and family, as well as Arden and Deanne and family.

Joyce and Bill Hansel hosted an anniversary dinner for Joe and Maxine Hansel (75 years) and Gordie and Shirley Reynolds (55 years) on Saturday.

Then in the evening, Joyce and Bill drove over to Grant and Judy Musgrove’s place, taking birthday cake to Ray Musgrove, who turned seven that day.

Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren drove into Stettler last weekend to watch grandchildren Tammy, Kayla and Luke Hronek barrel-race at the Agriplex.

While in town, they visited with daughter Elva, who was in from Innisfail.

Edna and Alex Taggart enjoyed having son Marty home for a few days, while moving back to Alberta from Mississauga, Ont., where he lived for many years.

Frank and Betty Hadwin celebrated Frank’s birthday, with daughters Janet Doyle of Drayton Valley and Margaret Hadwin of Forestburg coming home for the occasion.

Also in attendance were Betty’s sister Phyllis and Robin Read of Rocky Mountain House. Happy birthday, Frank!

Happy Birthday as well to Delores Duris, who celebrated on Tuesday.

The district 4-H club members enjoyed a fun day at the Alliance Ski Hill on the weekend. The hills were alive with laughter.

Because members of the Gadsby District Hobby Club are busy on Feb. 16, the monthly bingo will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, Please mark the change of the date on your calendars.
