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.

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.

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.

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.
