HALKIRK HERALD — Twelve senior floor curling teams from Endiang, Big Valley, Botha, Galahad, Castor, Stettler and Halkirk gathered at the Centre on Thursday for their annual bonspiel. The curlers were treated to a hearty lunch of beef and turkey casserole, salads and dessert, with a few locals who joined them for lunch.
