Congratulations to graduates

Grade 9 farewell was held on Wednesday night with two graduates, Taygan MacGillivray and Eric Williams.

Grade 9 farewell was held on Wednesday night with two graduates, Taygan MacGillivray and Eric Williams.  The night began with a potluck supper, then presentations and entertainment from the Grade 7 and 8 classes and a slide show of the graduates.

Congratulations to the former Halkirk students, Jacey Gamroth, Shane Neilson, Seth Nuefeld and Jillian Schaffner, who were among the graduates honoured  on Friday evening at Gus Wetter school festivities.

We send birthday greetings out to Dora Moracsh, who celebrated her 87th birthday on Sunday when the Duncans, Murray, Linda, T J, Tanner and Michelle of Stettler called to share coffee and birthday cake with her at the Paintearth Lodge.  Daughters Caroline Cox, Katie Turre and Linda Duncan had taken mom, Dora, out for dinner and a celebration on Thursday.

Andrea Mabbott was definitely surprised when her family, spearheaded by daughters Brittany and Tessa and son Elliot, planned a special 50th birthday party for her at the hall in Halkirk.  Both Andrea’s parents and Darcy’s parents plus most of their siblings and many other relatives and friends attended.  Happy birthday, Andrea!

Melody and Dale Kent were among the attendees at the Stettler grad on the weekend, grandson Brandon, son of Bob and Melinda graduated.

Ross and Sheryl Bunbury had their grandson, Jameson, spend the long weekend with them while his parents, Tanya and Jeff Clattenbury from Olds were playing ball. Jameson just turned three.

Word has been received on the passing of Iona Berg, mother of Paulette Heer from Castor.  The funeral was held in Stettler last Saturday at St Peter Lutheran Church.

Bingo will be held on Thursday, May 28 and the hazardous waste roundup is on Saturday, May 30 at the fire hall from 10 to 11 a.m.
