Golf Club to host Castor and Halkirk Elks on June 25

To celebrate Seniors’ Week, FCSS is serving ice-cream floats at the Halkirk Senior Centre from 10 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 6.

HALKIRK HERALD — To celebrate Seniors’ Week, FCSS is serving ice-cream floats at the Halkirk Senior Centre from 10 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 6. Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to be a member of the Senior Centre, in fact you don’t even have to be a senior, so come and enjoy!

The Castor and Halkirk Elks will host a golf tournament on Sunday, June 25 at 2 p.m. at the Castor Golf Club. This is best ball, and tournament players of all levels are invited to participate in this entertaining afternoon. The all inclusive fee of $30 gets you 9 holes of golf and a chicken cordon bleu supper. Please register by June 9 with either Pat Annett at 403-882-2495 or John deMos at 403-884-2286.

On July 15, Elks are invited to Big Valley for a round of golf, similar to what will be hosted in Castor on June 25. There are only two district tournaments this year so this is your chance. Fine weather with no mosquitoes are not guaranteed.

A “come and go” bridal shower was held at the Hall on Saturday, May 20 to honour Robyn Homans, bride-elect of Michael Potter. Supporting the bride were bridesmaids Laureen Saruga, Cheryl Glattasker and Sydney Hawkeswood. Her fourth bridesmaid, Maria was in Austria. Flower girls were Michael’s nieces Jailyn and Eberlee as well as Robyn’s niece, Aspen; Owen, nephew and ring bearer, assisted. Present also was mother of the bride, Cecile Homans from Pincher Creek and the groom’s mom, Lynn Potter as well as grandma, Lorraine Potter. A few games and lunch kept the crowd entertained.

Doan and Sherry Jamieson have their granddaughter, Sydney Jordahl graduating from Gus Wetter. Dale and Melody Kent have two grandchildren graduating, Breanne Kent in Stettler and Brian Kent in Camrose. Congratulations to all the graduates!

Kiara Gamroth and Megan Grice are among the Gus Wetter Jr. High students, along with parents hosting a group of exchange students from JJ O’Neil school in Napanee, Ontario, who arrived on May 24. All the students went to West Edmonton Mall on Thursday, May 25, and to the Circle Square ranch for a Man Hunter experience, with hiking and a wiener roast on Friday, May 26. The weekend was spent with their host families. On Monday and Tuesday they did an overnighter at the Columbia Ice Fields and Banff. The visitors went home on Wednesday, May 31, with our students leaving for a one-week return visit on Thursday, June 8.

Coming up: June 6 at 10 a.m. Ice cream treats at the Senior Centre, with final afternoon bingo of the season at 1 p.m.; June 8 7:30 p.m. last hall board bingo until September.
