Mother Teresa school students presented their annual Christmas concert to large group of family and friends on Tuesday evening. The concert began with “Twas the night before Christmas”, acted by Grade 1 to 3 students. Then the grades 1 through 4 performed Christmas Carols with bells. Grades 4, 5 and 6 sang and danced to three musical selections: Santa’s coal, snowman stomp and the little drummer boy. A play “Cowboy hands Christmas carol” was presented by the jr. high class. In between each act, Mrs. Norman’s piano students played Christmas carols. The entire student body gathered to conclude the evening with the Nativity. Our sincere appreciations to the teachers and their helpers.

Santa arrived with candy bags and oranges for all the students, compliments of the Halkirk Elks. A lunch was prepared by the parents, draws were made and a successful achievement went down in the history books. Students will spend their final day with activities at the Circle Square ranch.

The seniors held their Christmas supper on Tuesday evening at the center with 20 plus members present to enjoy turkey and the trimmings. While some went on to the school concert, others stayed enjoy a couple of rounds of floor curling. The casino committee reported that their first time of working the Jackpot casino in Red Deer was a successful operation, things went well and they had a lot of fun. The group consisted of 20 members and friends with some pulling double shifts.

The Elks Santa suit has gone missing from the Hall! When Santa is finished with it on Christmas eve the community would appreciate its return.

Dale and Melody Kent were in Camrose last weekend where they met up with Dales sisters and Greg and Laura for an early Christmas gathering.

Ross and Pat Stewart from Red Deer visited Tuesday afternoon with Mary Stewart celebrating an early exchange of Christmas gifts.

We send Christmas blessings to all our readers, the staff of the Stettler and Castor papers, our friends and family. Have a safe and happy holiday. See you all in 2015.
