Weddings and family reunions are big in July!

.

Gadsby/Westwoods

Weddings and reunions were on the agenda for the second weekend of July.

Ray and Rene Blackmore headed to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to help with and attend their son Scott and Christa’s wedding. The ceremony took place out doors with Christa’s three sisters in attendance. Scott’s best men were his brothers Robert and Travis Blackmore; close friends Jos and Joe Huraj and Luke Rawjewski. Ring bearers were young Jack and Adam. Also from the area were friends of the groom Mark Smith and Kyle Chadwick. Scott’s maternal grandmother Dorothy MacLean from Red Deer attended.

Westwoods was host to the Jacobson family reunion. Locals Shane and Denise Jacobson and family were among the many family members in attendance. Family members from Big Valley, Erskine, Forestburg and Langley, B.C. were there to enjoy a great weekend.

Eleanor and Frank Dahlgren, Percy and PauletteHeer, Guy and Linda Walstrom were among the guests on Saturday to witness the marriage of Contessa Coldwell and Rabee Abdo. Also there were her brother Dean Heer and his daughter Christine from Calgary. The outdoor wedding took place at the Riverbend golf course, a beautiful setting. Parents Rick Coldwell and Judy Harriett (nee Walgenbach) gave the bride away. A banquet-style reception and dance followed at the Holiday Inn in Red Deer with close to 90 guests.

Happy birthday to Tom Bigney, who celebrated on Sunday with a family supper at Fred and Velvet’s place in Gadsby.

Did everyone catch a glimpse of Neal Walgenbach who rode in the Calgary Stampede parade on Friday?

Note the change of date for the July supper in Gadsby and mark your calendar for July 23. As several members will be busy on the 16 and the month has five weekends, it was thought to be a good idea to move it down a week.

The Gadsby District Hobby Club is planning a barbecue complete with hot dogs, smokies, hamburgers, salads and dessert. It will be followed by the cash bingo for those interested and wishing to stay for the evening.

Dale and Wilda Nichols attended the graduation of granddaughter Kristin Nichols in Drayton Valley, returning by Rocky Mountain House to visit brother Duane and Etta Morlock.

Dale and Corina Derr along with Shane and Denise Jacobson enjoyed a ten-day trip to P.E.I where they saw many beautiful sights.

And this week our local 4H Beef Club members are off to Battle Lake Combined camp for a week. Among them are Rylee and Austin Jacobson, Reece and Steele Nichols, Keyonna Derr, Lincoln Carey and Junae Ventnor.
