Halkirk students among those attending Gus Wetter’s spring prom

One hundred and sixty plus gathered to enjoy the Elks annual “Mother’s Day” pancake breakfast on Sunday morning.

HALKIRK HERALD — One hundred and sixty plus gathered to enjoy the Elks annual “Mother’s Day” pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. As usual there were several multi-generation families present. Each lady was given a carnation to take home. A great job by the guys, who had a little help from our younger generation.

The seniors met for their monthly potluck supper and meeting on Tuesday evening, May 16. Floor curling has come to an end for the summer and the last senior bingo will be held on June 6. A wind-up potluck supper will be held on June 20 at 6 p.m.

Capital Power hosted a come and go informational session on the proposed Halkirk 2 wind project on Tuesday, May 16 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the community hall. The proposed project supports Alberta’s commitment to develop new sources of renewable energy. Attendees were treated to beef on a bun.

Halkirk students are being honoured at this year’s Spring Prom ceremony at Gus Wetter on Friday, May 26. They are Tiana Gamroth, Liam Grice, McGuire Kent, Leif Neufeld and Madelyn Schauer. Congratulations to all of you, well done!

We extend our sympathies to the Coleman family from the Gadsby/Westwoods area on the passing of Loralea on May 10. Loralea was a regular bingo player in Halkirk before her move into Stettler.

Kathy Muncy and Rhonda Walgenbach spent a week in Midland, Texas, where they attended the graduation of Kathy’s grandson, Jared, from the Midland college with a certificate in Diesel Mechanics. Jared is the son of Keith and Abbi Muncy. Weather was very hot and dry and so they were pleased to see the green grass on their return home.

Coming up: May 25 hall board regular bingo commences at 7:30 p.m.; May 27 Halkirk hosts household hazardous waste, electronics and paint products roundup at the fire hall; June 18 Father’s Day; June 21 first day of summer; June 24 annual Manhunter competition at the Circle Square, for more details go to the Circle Square website or call 403-884-2444.
