Jim and Maureen Wasdal are home from a trip to Utah and Las Vegas. Jim was playing ball in the World Senior Games at St. George, UT, with the Edmonton-60 team. The team won its first three games, but lost out just before the medal round. The Albertans also took in some of the sights and entertainment of Las Vegas, which wasn’t far away. George and Judy Nichols of Castor accompanied the Wasdals on the trip.

We send get-well wishes to Melitta Walgenbach, who suffered a back injury in a horse-riding mishap. We hope you are on the mend, Melitta.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Jessie (nee Morris) Lowis, who passed away at age 94 in Coronation.
