What a birthday party

Only 22 days left before Christmas! Are you ready??

Only 22 days left before Christmas! Are you ready??

The Gadsby Community Hall was full of well wishers on Saturday with well over 100 family and friends there to wish Bill (and Joyce) Hansel happy birthday. Pictures with Bill as you came in the door, a poster to sign, birthday goodies and cake were only part of the festivities. Larry, Marylou, Sandy and Sue hosted and entertained us with Bill and Joyce’s favorite songs from the past (yes, they sang for their folks), a “His and Hers” question and answer game and a bit of history. Very colorful, Bill! Joyce was unaware the birthday party was for her as well It was great to see so many Gadsbyites, past and present, there for the day. It was a miracle to have Bill’s sister Lavina and Gary Larson there. Lavina is still recovering from a lengthy stay in hospital after they were in a serious car accident this summer.

Grandson Curtis and Corrine Trennery were there with the most recent great grandchild, Dallan William Trennery (Provost). Dallan was born in Provost on Nov. 10 but had to stay in Red Deer hospital for a while. Everyone is doing fine now. It was fun to watch all Bill and Joyce’s great grandchildren playing at the party.Happy birthday, Bill (Dec 3) and Joyce (Dec 1)

Gloria Diegel, daughter Richelle, daughters-in-law Deanne and Ybiett and Deanne’s sister Heather had a girls’ night out on Tuesday “Dessert Night”, part of the four day Festival of Trees event in Stettler. Several from the Gadsby area left the birthday party to dress up for the gala Saturday night which ended the event.

And it was girls’ day on Saturday for Velvet, Haley, Angela and Leigha as they headed to Red Deer “Bridal Dress hunting” for Haley. After several dresses I’m told Haley found the dress. The wedding is set for September 2016. Congratulations Haley, and Nick!
