Halkirk community dinner draws crowd

Once again the community supper was a huge success.

Around 500 people from Halkirk and all our neighbouring communities took advantage of the lovely fall weather to venture out and enjoy turkey with all the trimmings. A pat on the back to all the community members who come together to make this day a success.

Congratulations to Kirk and Suzanne Sorensen on the arrival of an 8 lb 1 oz baby girl, Alerie Rose, born on Nov.2 in the Daysland hospital. Proud grandma is Marg Sorensen, who now makes her home in Hanna.

Happy birthday to Elsie Mc Colman, who celebrated her 60th birthday on Oct. 30. Larry Wells took her and her sister Rose out for supper on this special occasion.

Word has been received on the passing of Ernie Hanes. Ernie use to live in Halkirk for a very short time a couple of years ago.

The junior high mixed volleyball team participated at a boys’ tournament in Stettler on Saturday. Though the team didn’t place, they are much improved and will be ready for next year.

Quite a few folks from our area enjoyed the Christmas play “ Down the wrong chimney”, presented by the Forestburg Little Theatre group on Saturday evening. Local talent in the play were Shannon and Doreen Blumhagen.
