Santa paid visit to Halkirk Sunday

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with the village Yuletide lights hung, the white snow and cold temperatures, but especially because Santa paid an early visit at the Elks annual pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. Jolly old St. Nick passed out candy bags, compliments of the Elks, to a lot of excited youngsters.

Forty plus Halkirk Hicks 4-H members and their family attended the CFR in Edmonton last week, with Rocky Dahmer driving the bus. On Dec. 12, the club members held their Christmas party while enjoying the facilities at the Donalda riding arena. On Tuesday, this group will be catering to the Elks Christmas party at the hall.

A reminder to all that this is the season to remember those less fortunate than us. Donations are most welcome in Silent Santa boxes and with food banks in the Castor or Stettler areas.

Several Christmas parties have been held the beginning of this month with a few more to come in the next few weekends.

Welcome back to Adrian and Cassandra Cordel, who moved back into the area from Davidson, Sk. at the end of the month.

The Castor and area multi club visited the Paintearth Lodge residents. Wyatt and McGuire Kent are the Halkirk kids in the club.

Participating in the Stettler floor curling fun spiel was Anne Neilson, Dora Morasch, Elizabeth Raher and Rose Koenraadt.

Coming up: Dec. 9 and 16 ham and turkey Bingo; Dec. 14 Mother Teresa School Christmas concert at 7:30 in the school.
