The Elks lodge organized, community supported, fall supper with turkey, turnips and trimmings will be held this Sunday, Nov. 2 at the hall.

Took a look in the history book to see how many fall suppers have been served in Halkirk; found a bean supper in the late 1930s put on by the young peoples society. Adults – 25 cents, school age kids – 15 cents or no more than $ 1 per family. Then in October 1949, the Ladies Aid for the United Church, with the assistance of the E.T.T. ( Every Third Thursday ) ladies held a chicken supper at the community hall. Adults – 75 cents, children under 12 – 35 cents. The E.T.T was formed around 1949 and assisted the Women’s Auxiliary with fund raising. The group ended with the formation of the O.O.R.P. in 1961. The fall supper was one of the Royal Purples’ biggest fundraisers. When the OORP surrendered their charter, the supper was taken over by the Elks and their community friends.

Students at the Halkirk school are busy with volleyball, Remembrance Day ceremony on Nov 3. And will be helping with the fall supper coming up.
