HALKIRK HERALD — The local volunteer fire department responded to two calls of accidents in our area this past week. It’s a reminder that winter driving conditions are in effect. A reminder the fire department is always looking for volunteers, if you can help phone the village office.

We send out get well wishes to Janette Berry, who is a patient in the Red Deer hospital.

Randy Hallett and his friend Shirley were recent visitors with Randy’s aunt Irene Schilling.

Beware, there is a scam going around about computers, your computer will have issues and then tell you to phone a number for support, wanting your credit card. At least one person has had this happen to them.
