The Homecoming committee 2012 met on July 27 and are pleased to report that reunion plans are underway. Reserve the weekend of July 6 to 8, 2012 on your calendar and notify family and friends. 2012 is Halkirks official 100th birthday as a Village and the sequel to Halkirk Home Fires will be launched.
