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.
