Halkirk fire department accepts truck donation


Halkirk Herald

The Halkirk fire department has accepted a gift in kind of a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado truck from TransCanada Pipelines Ltd., which partners with communities to enhance community based initiatives.

The truck, which arrived Aug. 23, will be modified to meet the needs of the department before it’s put into use. Watch for some fundraising activities this fall.

Our community is in desperate need of new volunteers. Practice is held on the third Wednesday of each month in the fire hall. Volunteers should live in or close to town. Training is provided for new recruits.

Bob and Irene Cox from Courtney, B.C., are spending the week with Doug and Virginia Duke. Irene and Virginia are cousins. Allan and Jeanette Marshall from Gwynne drove down to visit with them.

Don and Kjerene Engel from Edmonton called in town Sunday en route to Coronation to visit with Louie and Fern.

Laura and Allen Gamroth and girls planned to attend the wedding of Laura’s cousin, Joel, and Amelia Cinnamon in Valemount, B.C., on the long weekend.

They will then take part in the second annual family raft trip down the Fraser River past Mount Robson. Laura’s parents live in this area.

Visiting with Paul and Jacquie Dietrich last week were Jacquie’s sister-in-law, Brenda Anderson, and her daughter from Quesnel, B.C.

Bingo at the Hall commences this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Games are held every second Thursday. Extras include an early bird bingo and the Happy H, which is a progressive bingo game. Come on out and bring a friend — the profits go toward paying the utility bills at the hall.
