Information session at Senior Centre on Feb. 21

HALKIRK HERALD -- According to an announcement by Environment Canada on Jan. 13, we've hit the "Dead of Winter."

HALKIRK HERALD — According to an announcement by Environment Canada on Jan. 13, we’ve hit the “Dead of Winter.” It’s not the end of winter, it’s just the halfway point, calculated by noting the average temperature every day of the year. So if you’re fighting the winter blues, there’s lots to do in the next few weeks.

On Saturday, Feb. 4, the doors open at 6 p.m. for the Elks Alaskan Seafood supper followed by comedian Howie Miller who has been featured in Winnipeg, Halifax and Montreal comedy festivals. Pre-sold tickets only, please.

Spots are still available for the seniors’ floor curling bonspiel on Thursday, Feb. 16. Phone Paul or Jacquie at 403-884-2565. Local floor curling games are held every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.

Family day activities will be held at the Senior Centre on Monday, Feb. 20 from noon till 3 p.m. for all ages. This event has been sponsored by the FCSS.

On Feb. 21, the FCSS will host an informational meeting at the Senior Centre about senior fraud and/or senior abuse. The session starts at 6:30 p.m. and everyone is welcome.

We extend our sympathy to the family of Heather (Thomson) Wetter who passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 11 in Edmonton. Heather married the late Wes Wetter and they had three sons. No memorial was planned as all the family were together at Christmas.

Dean and Emma Fowler spent their honeymoon in Iceland, which is becoming a popular and fun place to visit. They stayed in Reykjavik, touring from Snaefellsjokull to Vik. They also went snorkelling in Pingvallavatn, saw the waterfalls at Gullfoss and Seljalandsfoss, watched a geyser and went skidooing. Temperatures were eight degrees above zero, with only four and a half hours of sunlight.

Kathy Muncy met up with her son, Keith and Abbi in Galveston, Texas where they attended her granddaughter, Avery’s graduation from Texas A&M University. Avery received her B.Sc. degree, majoring in Marine Biology. They then drove to the Muncy home in Midland, a nine-hour drive, part of which was through sand and sage bush.

Terry and Peggy Vockeroth recently enjoyed a brief visit with son, Scott, Emily and girls in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Jan and Rose Koenraadt were among a group of 24 people that spent a week in Huatuko, Mexico where the weather was 33 degrees every day.
