Macbeth staged in Halkirk

Romanian Freedom singers were in Halkirk on Saturday night. The evening began with a pot luck supper then the freedom singers, who reside in Kelowna, entertained the crowd with an evening of gospel music.

Parents and grandparents enjoyed a presentation of Macbeth, put on by the Theatre Prospero and some of the students. While here, the troupe enjoyed the accommodations at the Circle Square Ranch.

Visiting with Dale and Melody Kent this past week was Laura and Greg Kent from Fort Nelson, BC.

Congratulations to Andrew and Dena Boxma on the birth of their first child, Leah Christine on Nov. 8, in Edmonton. Excited grandparents are Angie Boxma and Basil and Christine Nichols.

Stan and Dorothy, Rod and Charlene spent last weekend in the Seattle, Washington area where they met with Stan’s aunt Mary Helen Anderson, two first cousins and several extended family members for the first time. Mary Helen, who will be 96 on Christmas day, was married to Percy Anderson’s younger brother, George. Percy had been placed in a foster home in Halkirk in 1910 and 100 years later, with the help of Ancestry.com, the family have now met some new family, shared pictures and exchanged stories about a grandmother, aunt and uncle that they had never met. All this in time to update the family history in the new edition of Halkirk Home Fires. Have you sent in your story yet?

Stan and Dorothy took the Seattle Clipper to Victoria on Monday to visit with granddaughter Jamie and Tyler Patroch, Grayden and Qwynn of Sooke and were met with several cms of snow and a –8 temperature. Very damp, but thank goodness, it doesn’t last long. On Wednesday, they had lunch with Murray Thomson of Vancouver, who was attending meetings in Victoria.

Don’t forget the annual breakfast with Santa held in the hall on Dec. 5 from 9 to 11 a.m. Bingo at the hall on Dec. 2 at 7:30.
