Castor Legion members visit school for Remembrance Day

Snow has hit the area once again, with lots of wet, fluffy snow setting the scene for last weekend.

Snow has hit the area once again, with lots of wet, fluffy snow setting the scene for last weekend.

Members of the Castor Legion were at the Halkirk school on Thursday for a Remembrance Day service with our youngsters.

Monday was a holiday this year, as Remembrance Day fell on a Sunday.

The flu clinic at the Senior Centre was very busy on Tuesday as residents lined up for their shots.

Several of our residents attended the CFR in Edmonton on the weekend, cheering on the local cowboys.

Halkirk Elks members Matthew Koenraadt and John de Mos attended the fall district meeting in Hanna last Saturday.

District Deputy Lyle Howard from the Hanna lodge attended the Halkirk Elks meeting last Tuesday.

Volleyball season is coming to an end. CARA playoffs were in Stettler last Saturday for the girls’ teams from our district. CARA playoffs for the boys were in Coronation last Friday. Our junior team travelled to Byemoor last Tuesday for a practice game.

We would like to welcome Phil and Betty Checkel to our community. They come from south of Fleet.

Get-well wishes go out to Janette Berry, who recently underwent surgery on her back in a Edmonton hospital and has been transferred to Castor.

The last windmill has now been assembled. Now, we wait for them all to be connected to complete construction of the Halkirk wind project.

We hope everyone took time to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony on the weekend. Lest we forget.

Coming up in Halkirk is Bingo at the hall at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
