Ashbachers stock Agribition awards for Hampshire ram, premier breeder honours

Sunday’s Grey Cup parties are always a kickoff to the Christmas season and a busy time of year.

Sunday’s Grey Cup parties are always a kickoff to the Christmas season and a busy time of year.

As the East dominated the play against the West last Sunday, a quick check on the definition of the word Argonaut seemed necessary.

It means “someone engaged in dangerous but potentially rewarding adventure” and/or “ a person who enjoys taking risks.”

Toronto was all of that Sunday in knocking off the Calgary Stampeders.

Congratulations are sent out to Chad Sorensen and Melitta Walgenbach, who were married on Saturday evening at the Stettler Hall. The newlyweds will reside in Big Valley.

Happy birthday to Corrine Cordel, who celebrated a milestone birthday on Sunday. Her parents, sons, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends gathered in Camrose on Saturday to help her celebrate.

Word has been received on the passing of Ken McDonald on Nov. 18 in Calgary. Ken spent several years in our community working away during summer and later spending his winters in Mexico.

Rose Koenraadt, Halkirk’s representative on the FCSS board, attended the FCSSAA Power of Prevention conference held in Edmonton this past week.

Darrel Ashbacher and his daughter Erin returned from attending the Canadian Western Agribition held in Regina. The Ashbachers received the grand champion award for their Hampshire ram and the premier breeder award.

JD and Sandra Johnson with daughters Devon, Toryn and Aspen spent a week in the Cancun area of Mexico. They said it was a little cool — Boo Hoo.

COMING UP: Nov. 29 – Hall board regular bingo at 7:30; Dec. 2 – Christmas in the Village with the Elks annual breakfast from 9 to 11 am; Santa is due to land at 10 am; Christmas market at the School from 10 to 1 pm; Sleigh /wagon rides around town and a chance to go caroling; Dec. 18 – Mother Teresa School’s Christmas concert.
