The Halkirk Prairie Short Line Club will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sundays as soon as the nice weather hits. If the R.R. crossing lights are flashing, then the station is open and anyone is welcome to drop in.

The seniors held their monthly potluck followed by a business meeting. They will be working the Casino in Red Deer on August 15 and 16. If you can lend a helping hand, please contact Rose at 403-884-2237. Next meeting is on Tuesday, May 16. Floor curling and bingo will end in June.

Paul and Jacquie Dietrich, Rose Koenraadt, Wendy Ashbacher and Anne Neilson were among the floor curlers at the Hub in Stettler last Tuesday.

Harold and Velma Chick hosted their family on Saturday, April 22 at the Hall for an Easter dinner get together. Due to the bad weather some were unable to attend, but the 50 folks that were there spent the day visiting and enjoying Easter activities. A new miniature baby goat was the centre of attention.
