Halkirk Herald: Layne MacGillivray head to Calgary Stampede canvas auction

New phone sheets ready for distribution at the Post Office

The 2018 Rangeland Derby held their annual Chuckwagon canvas auction on Thursday, March 22nd.

Congratulations to local driver, Layne MacGillivray who tied for the 4/5 spot with a bid of $105,000. from Spray Lakes Sawmills.

Layne is a driver with the WPCA (World Professional Chuckwagon Association).

His first run will be at the Grande Prairie Stampede from May 30th to June 3rd.

Local floor curlers Peggy Bergstrum, Paul and Jacquie Dietrich, Rose Koenraadt and Ann Neilson entered the Endiang Fun ‘Spiel on Monday. A good time was reported.

Watch for your new Halkirk phone sheets, compliments of the Elks. They are being distributed through the post office.

Summer hours commence on April 11th at the Transfer Station. They are Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Waste round-up date for the Halkirk area is May 26th. More details to follow.

A sure sign of spring is when the ‘telemarketers’ crawl out of the woodwork and start pestering us all with phone calls. The favorites so far are a computer virus, credit card interest or late payments and persons impersonating the Income Tax bureau claiming that you owe the government money. They can be quite nasty. Be sure to hang up on these people.

Another sure sign of spring is the arrival of the Geese, a Robin or two and perhaps even a gopher. Enjoy the Easter holidays with family and friends.

Halkirk Hall board regular bingo is on March 29th at 7:30 p.m.
