Adelia Guba accompanied her daughter and family, the Bill Michls of Stratton, to Williams, Mn. on Christmas Eve to join family members at the residence of her cousin, Judy and Don Senykr.
About 60 people attended the annual gathering, which also marked Adelia’s uncle Leon Wilson’s 93rd birthday.
Leon retired from the Minnesota Department of Highways a good number of years. He still enjoys fairly good health, having beaten cancer, and goes deer hunting regularly and fishing in the summer.
He and his wife, Mae, also take regular trips and also attend seniors’ activities in both Williams and Baudette.
