HALKIRK HERALD — The Village of Halkirk’s streets were crowded on Sunday evening, Nov. 6 when over 400 hungry friends and a lot of youngsters came for supper. The community joins together each fall to organize, cook, bake, serve and clean up at their delicious turkey supper. This tradition has been going on for several years and the community thanks everyone who came out to support them.

Some unknown visitors have been scattering silk flowers and removing ornaments from the graves at the local cemetery, so a new fence has been recently constructed around the perimeter of the cemetery.

Anne Neilson and her floor curling team from Castor participated in a bonspiel in Botha last Thursday, Nov. 10.

Congratulations to Dean Fowler and Emma Graham who were married in Lacombe on Saturday, Nov. 5. A reception and social evening followed. Emma’s family immigrated from Ireland and her bouquet held the Graham tartan while Dean’s tie was of the Duncan tartan. Dean’s nieces, Kaylee, Grace and Olivia and his nephew Brody stole the show as junior attendants. The newlyweds will make their home at the south of Halkirk.

Upcoming events – Nov. 26: Country Gospel Music with a potluck supper at the Hall at 6 p.m.; Dec. 4: Elks annual “Breakfast with Santa” is from 9-11 a.m. with Santa scheduled to fly in about 10 a.m. It’s a great family time and this year the diners are asked to bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the Castor Food Bank.
