Some interest expressed in Hobby Club

In a rainy year the grass chokes out the dandelion; in a dry year the dandelion chokes out the grass. Guess which one we are in.

The Gadsby Bank Building was the scene of the annual county fruit tray presentation on Wednesday with 23 people attending.  Councillor Greg Jackson presented the tray; cake and coffee served by members of the Gadsby District Hobby Club.  Following coffee time, a 5 o’clock meeting of the club was held to determine interest in joining.  Two young people voiced their interests, we had six seniors and four members as well.  Because of the young persons’ interest, it was decided to allow another month to see if they can generate more interest.  A date for the next meeting will be announced soon.

A shared Botha/Gadsby grant for maintenance/grounds keeper has been awarded to Ivan Andrews. The job will keep him busy in both towns, mowing, weed eating and maintenance.  Percy Heer (mowing) and Lavonne Smith (office) have retired from the village staff. Percy will stay on to run the vac truck until the sewer project is completed this summer.
