HALKIRK HERALD — What a party! We send special birthday greetings out to Bill Jamieson who celebrated his 100th birthday on Saturday, Oct. 29. Actual date was Oct. 27. Eighty plus family members from the Jamieson’s and Doan’s extended families in addition to a few close friends gathered at Points West in Stettler to celebrate. Bill was thrilled to receive greetings from the Queen, the Governor General and from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office. He also received a plaque and bouquet of flowers from Mannix, his former employer. The family served lunch and a large birthday cake.

Almost 40 ghosts and goblins roamed the streets on Halloween night soliciting treats on Monday, Oct. 31.

The floor curling team of Paul and Jacquie Dietrich and Darrel and Wendy Ashbacher travelled to Galahad last Monday.

Deer hunting season is in full swing from Tuesday, Nov. 1 and our local guys and girls are enjoying the sport.

Anne Neilson returned from a holiday in greater Vancouver visiting with family, Mike in Burnaby and Brenda in Langley.
