Family and friends, young and old, gathered on Saturday afternoon, July 22 to celebrate with Kathy Muncy on the occasion of her 80th birthday. They travelled from the Vancouver area, from Southern Sk. and from all around Alberta and more than 80 folks visited, were wined and dined and enjoyed a slice of birthday cake. Happy birthday Kathy!

The Rowland family try to have a family reunion every two years and this year the Bill Rowland family were the hosts. A group of 90 or so gathered at Ponderosa City, the home and Western wear store of Kevin and Mary Rowland just outside of Alder Flats at the weekend. There were many youngsters in the gathering and they enjoyed the inflatable pools and water guns and the fun that the occasion entailed. Everyone was treated to a cowboy supper of roast beef, baked potatoes and beans on Saturday night followed by a pancake breakfast the next morning. A wonderful, fun weekend.

Devon Johnson and Tristen Shaw from Coronation have been recruited to play on a U-16 Jr. ball team out of Elnora. They will play five games in Calgary next week in the Western Canada finals. A win will take them into Washington State for more games. Good luck girls.

Congratulations to Mike and Leanne (Howe) Lougheed on the arrival of a 7 lb. 11 oz. baby boy, Keaton William John, born on Tuesday, July 18 in the Stettler hospital. Thrilled with his arrival are big sisters, Emily, 4, and Madison, 2, as well as grandparents Terry and Donna Howe.

Jan and Rose Koenraadt were on a bus tour to the Ag in Motion agriculture fair in Saskatoon for a couple of days this week.

Stan and Dorothy Anderson attended the 95th birthday celebrations for Natalie Hewitt on Sunday at the Paintearth Lodge in Castor. The large gathering, hosted by her family, included several former Halkirkites.

Coming up: Aug. 26 – Elks annual bull-a-rama. More details to follow.
