Benefit dance for Bruce Woelk drew big crowd in Endiang

Congratulations to Kirk and Suzanne Sorensen on the birth of their daughter Alerie Rose at the Daysland hospital Nov. 2. Congratulations also to the grandparents, Marj Sorensen of Hanna and Colin and Barb Kroetsch of Heisler.

The Endiang Hall was filled to capacity Nov. 6 for the Bruce Woelk benefit dance. The evening started with a delicious meal, followed by both a silent and live auction of many donated items and concluded with a dance to the music of Marty & Company. Bruce is in Calgary, where he continues to receive treatments for leukemia. The generous support of the community and surrounding areas will be a great help to the Woelks.
