Well-wishers gather to help Heers mark 40th anniversary

Warmer weather brought in thick fog, followed by rain, making the roads a bit of a challenge this past weekend.

Warmer weather brought in thick fog, followed by rain, making the roads a bit of a challenge this past weekend.

One-hundred-and-fifty family and friends signed the guest book at the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Stettler on Sunday, marking the 40th wedding anniversary for Percy and Paulette Heer.

Percy and Paulette greeted everyone at the door. Joining them at the head table were best man and maid of honour Eldon and Dale Van Straten. A musical program was enjoyed by all. A roast-beef supper was a fitting end to the day.

There will be a cash bingo on Nov. 17 at the bank building in Gadsby. The loonie pot is more than $80 and growing.

The women from the Gadsby District Hobby Club are preparing for the annual Santa Claus day in Gadsby, which will be held Saturday, Dec 1.

Santa will arrive at the bank building about at 2 p.m. A traditional turkey supper will begin at 5 p.m. at the Gadsby hall.

The turkey and ham bingo will begin at 7:30 back at the bank building.

It’s with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Randal Walsh of Big Valley. Randal was a member of the Gadsby District Hobby Club, taking an active executive position for a time. She will be remembered for her homemade fudge and candy, as well as her laughter and fun-filled attitude toward work and community activities.
