Great Mother’s Day breakfast

It was the Elks' annual " Salute to Mothers" breakfast of pancakes, fruit, sausages, ham and eggs at the hall.

HALKIRK HERALD — It was the Elks’ annual ” Salute to Mothers” breakfast of pancakes, fruit, sausages, ham and eggs at the hall. What a great way to celebrate with moms, grandmas and great-grandmas as many families gathered together on Sunday. Each lady took home a carnation. A special thanks to the local jr. high students who served, gathered, washed many dishes and scrubbed many tables. These students learn early the value of volunteerism, and they leave Hallkirk with impressive life skills.

Our Halkirk senior floor curlers were in Botha on Thursday for their bonspiel. Enjoying the day were Adolf Heier, Edna Luft, Wendy Ashbacher, Jacqui Dietrich and Anne Neilson.

Congratulations to Jordan Malloy and Dylan Ussellman, who were married on May 7 in Coronation. Special guests included Jordan’s grandmother, Nelda Malloy, from Montreal and her sister, Jade, along with her 2.5 month old baby, Peyton, from New Brunswick. Her brother, Liam, celebrated his birthday during the celebrations.

Sympathy goes out to Laura and Allan Gamroth and their girls on the passing of Laura’s grandma who lived at Mt. Robson, B.C.

Thanks to school children who once again went around town and did a town wide cleanup.

Garbage pickup will be delayed to Tuesday May 24 as May 23 is the Queen Victoria day long weekend.

During the Elks’ annual Alaskan seafood dinner and fund raiser last February, a group of six went together and bought a dinner catered to by a local couple. They, Les and Cathy, Rocky and Louanne, Murray and Linda got together the end of April and were treated to the superb culinary skills of their hosts, Tony and Clara. Just one of the great reasons to support our local fundraisers.

Coming up – May 12 – Hall board regular Bingo commencing at 7:30; May 26 – Grades 1 through 6 track meet at Burma Park; May 28 – Piano recital by Mrs. Karen Norman’s students at the hall at 7 p.m.; June 1 – Grade 9 graduation; June 2 – Grades 1 to 6 Field trip; June 4 – Bridal shower to honor bride-elect, Kourtney Schilling, at 2 p.m. at the hall.
