GADSBY/WESTWOODS — A rude reminder that winter is coming with Thursday night and Friday morning temperatures in the area being minus 10 degrees Celsius. Our thoughts are with Saskatchewan as they have had their first severe winter storm already. Hope everyone kept wartm and safe in the long weekend.

Bill and Joyce Hansel took in young Bailey Musgrove’s volleyball tournament last weekend in Erskine.

Cody Cassidy took first place; Curtis Cassidy fourth in the CPRA rodeo finals, recently. Good luck to both who will be competing in the CFR finals from Nov. 9-13.

Vic and Barb Carey are home from Toronto, landing in Calgary and spending the night before motoring home.

Westwoods Ag Society is in need of volunteers to fill shifts at Cash Casino in Red Deer, Oct. 15-16. If anyone is interested, please call Debbie at 403-883-2717.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 29 for the 94th Annual Omega Circle Bazaar and bake sale. Please note the change of venue, as this year it will be held in the Botha Community Hall. The ladies hope this will be more convenient with more room to move around and easy wheelchair access. There will be the usual bake table, craft table, pail prizes, fish pond and popcorn tickets for the kids, guessing game, and the main raffle. Ticket sales at Sobey’s last Tuesday, Oct. 4 was a huge success with only a few books left for the bazaar. There will also be a white elephant table as well as a light lunch and door prizes, so there’s something for everyone.

Also that night, there will be a Halloween party and dance at the Gadsby Community Hall, so start planning your costumes now.
