Upcoming spring fling dance in Gadsby

Gadsby/Westwoods

The winds have blown ill for six days and still we are fortunate when we hear of fires in northern Alberta and floods in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Power outages and some wind damages have been reported north of Gadsby.

Seeding has just begun.

Spring fling is happening this Saturday night in Gadsby. The chicken and ribs supper starts at 5 p.m. at the Gadsby community hall. Come out and enjoy great food, door prizes for all and a raffle. Then head down to the Bank Building for cash Bingo and try your luck on the loonie pot.

Congratulations to Travis and Leanne Blackmore who were married April 20 in a private ceremony in Kelowna, B.C. The happy couple will remain In the community and we wish them well.

Several families in the community are preparing for a huge garage sale, which will be held in Botha hall May 27 and 28. There will be something for everyone and the hall will be filled with bargain price tables. More details next week in the garage sale listings.

Get well wishes go out to Eugenie Dhenin, who is recovering from a fall and broken hip. Eugenie was in Red Deer hospital but has returned to Stettler hospital to recuperate.

Smitty and Lavonne Smith watched the ponies run in Bashaw on the weekend. Smitty reports howling winds and lots of dust.

A bridal shower was held in Halkirk for Gadsby-born Lauren Potter, hosted by her bridesmaids. Ladies from the surrounding communities came to wish Lauren well. The wedding will take place June 25 in Galahad. Lauren and her future husband Clint Saruga live and work out of Stettler. Best wishes, Lauren!

Sadie and Sophie Diegel had their dance recital on the weekend at the PAC in Stettler. Family members , Deanne and Arden, Richelle and Greg Ybiett, as well as nan and papa, Gloria and Stan were there to watch and cheer them on.
