HALKIRK HERALD — The junior high students were camping at Twin Lakes campground in the Crimson Lake Provincial Park at the weekend. The group who took off on Sunday did some fishing, canoeing and hiking. On Tuesday, they visited the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site, where they traveled back in time and faced challenges similar to what the settlers had faced. Thanks to Jack and Melanie Ross, who accompanied the group. They returned on Wednesday.

A pat on the back to Max Schaffner who participated in the Walk a mile in her shoes” reminding us that abuse against women, gender violence and sexual assault are still present in today’s society. What size were those shoes, Max?
