Weekend Bingo at Gadsby Bank Building depends on good weather

I was very honoured to be asked to speak at the Remembrance Day service in Stettler this year and thrilled to see so many young people there to carry the torch on into the future.

As this marked 100th anniversary of the Navy, I spoke on its history and our local Navy war veterans and of course the HMCS (Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship) Stetttler.

Bingo is set for Gadsby Bank Building this Saturday night – unless the weather is bad.

If in doubt, phone Paulette Heer at 403-574-2442 on that day after 1 p.m.

Bingo will be cancelled if roads are bad.

A fun cribbage tournament will be held at Gadsby church building on Nov. 24 at 1:30 p.m.

Coffee and snacks will be served.

This will be a good beginning to what could be a long winter coming.

Happy first birthday to Cooper Bigney and Piper Davits, who celebrated their birthdays with family.

They each had their own small birthday cake to “enjoy” followed by a bath.

Presents were opened and lots of pictures were taken.

The party was held Sunday, Nov. 14 at mother Mareena’s with mother Haley and Sean helping.

Also at the party were Grandma Velvet, Great Aunt Mary, Tammy, Darcy and Alison, Uncle Tom and Aunt Angela as well as Melissa and Sidney, Kendra and friend Kole.

Congratulations to Curtis Cassidy who won the CFR (Canadian Finals Rodeo) steer wrestling event in Edmonton on the weekend and also earned high points.

Curtis and his brother Cody have qualified to compete in the national finals in Las Vegas along with their famous horse Willy who will retire after Vegas.

Good luck to all.

Anyone planning to donate a prize for the coming Santa Claus Day on Dec. 4, let the club know soon.

Donations are gratefully appreciated.

Santa will arrive at the Gadsby Bank Building shortly after 2 p.m. for the event which will also include candy bags, face painting, hay rides, hot chocolate and hot dogs.

Dress warm and bring your camera.

Then it’s off to the Gadsby Hall for the turkey and ham supper with all the trimmings served by Gadsby District Hobby Club.

Back to the Bank Building for a turkey and ham Bingo with early-bird games at 7:30 p.m. with cash prizes and two Bonanza games.

And don’t forget the loonie pot.

Frank and Eleanor Dahlgren were guests at son Cecil and Pat Walgenbach’s in Botha on the weekend to help Cecil celebrate his birthday.

Iva Lee Quance has puppies to give away. Phone Iva at 403-574-2241.
