Halkirk students present concert, visit Circle Square Ranch for rides

The Mother Teresa School students presented their annual Christmas concert on Tuesday evening and the school was filled with many youngsters and young families representing the growth of our district population. The junior high performed a play featuring a terrific choir of young singers with a rendition of ‘It Came upon the Midnight Clear’. The k-to Grade 6 students entertained with eight songs, but the pre-schoolers, as always, stole the show with one song, “ Ring the Bells”.

Last day school for 2010 was on Thursday, they all went out to Circle Square Ranch and had a wiener roast and hay rides.

Curling club worked at the casino in Red Deer two days last week.

Congratulations to Max Schaffner, now in Grade 10 at Gus Wetter high, who has made the Camrose Vikings Club Volleyball team and will be training there twice a week, and to Kourtney Schilling, in Grade 10 at Wm. E Hay, who has made the Wildcats senior girls basketball team. Jillian Schaffner, who sings with the Gracenotes performed at a Christmas service of remembrance in Stettler.

All of David and Linda Chick’s family gathered on Sunday for an early Christmas celebration. The family, including grandparents Harold and Velma, fills the house and totals 21 members.

Doug and Virginia Duke met with Virginia’s brothers, Keith and Regina Marshall of Stettler and Allan and Jeannettee Marshall from Gwynne and with Jeannettee’s sister Terese Allen and Ted Gabert for a pre- Christmas get together on Sunday.

Peter and Karin Koenraadt and children were early Christmas visitors with Jan and Rose Koenraadt.

Dale Berry from Saskatoon arrived Sunday to spend the Christmas season with his daughters, Ellyn Schaffner and Christie Ruddell and their families.

We extend a sincere wish to each and every one of you, our readers and our friends, for a safe and happy Christmas and the best of everything in the new year 2011.
