New Brigden News: June 25, 2012
In true Spring fashion, love is in the air. The couples shower-open house for Chris Jorgenson and Lindsay Chmilar, held on Saturday at the NB hall was a huge success. It was wonderful to meet members of Lindsay’s family and to see family and friends out for the occasion. It was a great evening!
Congratulations to Ashton Robertson and Rachele Pederzolli who were married at the Pederzolli Ranch just outside of Medicine Hat on Saturday, June 16. Local attendees of the wedding were grandparents, Linda and Lawrence Wilson and friends, Sheldon and Lucille Hertz. The Hertz’s met up and visited with Nelson Hertz and Jana Brausen from Red Deer as Nelson was the best man for the wedding.
Huge congratulations to Dillion Heatherington of Calgary, son of Wes and Cindy Heatherington, and grandson of Carole and Gordon Heatherington. Dillion is one of thirteen WHL hockey players to have been selected for the Canadian National Mens Under 18 camp – how exciting!
