Halkirk history book committee seeks stories, photos, to update village history for centennial

Halkirk history book committee is looking for the stories of people who lived in the Halkirk area at some point in their lives.

The committee is interested in acquiring stories and pictures about Halkirk and its inhabitants to include in an updated history book, that will be a continuation of the 1984 edition of Halkirk Home Fires.

The book will be released in 2012 for Halkirk’s 100th anniversary. For more information, please contact the Halkirk and District Senior Society, Box 233, Halkirk or go online at Historyfolks@live.ca.

The Halkirk seniors will begin their monthly meetings again on Sept. 21 starting with a potluck supper, their meeting then followed by floor curling.

Congratulations to Nick and Shawna Jenkins of the safe arrival of a 6 lb 6 oz baby girl, Rori Nichole, born on Aug. 31 at the Stettler hospital. Shawna’s mom, Jaye Jacobson, from Brandon, MB is spending several weeks here bonding with the new baby and keeping 19-month-old Coy busy. Local grandparents are Fred and Gwen Jenkins from Castor.

Tracey and Ken Schilling of Calgary and Phyllis and Colin Fuller from Airdre stopped for a quick visit with their aunt Irene Schilling, en route to the Jenkins/Fuller wedding in Castor last weekend. Shane Schilling from Calgary is out visiting with his aunt Irene and family in the area.

Anne Neilson spent a week visiting with son Mike in Burnaby and her daughter Brenda Hagerty in Langley.

Murray Thomson from Vancouver made a quick stop in town last Friday and visited briefly with the Anderson families while on business in Edmonton.

Dennis and Doris Cordel spent the long weekend visiting with son Adrian and his wife Cassandra in Davidson, SK.

Community church services will commence on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 2 p.m. The interdenominational service is held on the last Sunday of each month and is open to all. Watch for posters on a potluck supper to be announced at a later date.
