Halkirk’s pretty landscape changes seemingly daily

The last day for the Sizzling Summer program, sponsored by the FCSS, at the playground ended on Wednesday.

The last day for the Sizzling Summer program, sponsored by the FCSS, at the playground ended on Wednesday.

Jacey Gamroth was the co-ordinator in Halkirk. She was pleased with the number of youngsters who showed up once a week for crafts, games and, of course, snacks.

Liam Malloy was the Halkirk STEP student for the summer, working with Paul Dietrich and Doan Jamieson. His job ended last Friday. There was lots of work to do, keeping the town in shape for the summer visitors.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Sarah (Rowland) Cordel, who passed away Tuesday in Stettler. She was a gracious lady who was part of the Halkirk community until 1998, when she moved to Stettler. Her family story is on Page 119 of Home Fires and continues on Page 51 of Home Fires Part 2.

Shane Neilson accompanied his uncle Mike Neilson and aunt Brenda Haggerty to their homes in the greater Vancouver area for a short holiday. They left on Tuesday. Mike and Brenda were in town to celebrate their mom’s birthday.

Larry and Sandi Brodersen accompanied their granddaughter, Arianna, to her home in New Brunswick in time for the new school year.

The landscape around our village changes daily — as of the weekend, there were 19 windmills completed as part of the Halkirk wind project between Halkirk and Castor.

We hope everyone enjoyed the last long weekend of the summer. Life gets more structured once school starts.

COMING UP: Sept. 6 — Halkirk Hall board hosts its first bingo for the season Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and then it’s every other Thursday night. Sept. 9 — Grandparents’ day – It’s a special time.
