Locals at the jubilee

Congratulations to Steve and Amanda Jackson on the safe arrival of their 8 lb 3 oz baby boy, Brody Daniel David, born in Red Deer hospital. Very proud first time grandparents are Dan and Clara Fowler with this being a first great-grandchild for Doris Fowler.

Congrats to Ellyn Schaffner, who has completed her Masters degree through Walden University out of Minneapolis completely on line. She is preparing her thesis Children’s Voices for publication this fall.

Deepest sympathy is extended to Bette Hronek and her children Barry and Dawn and their families on the passing of their husband and father, Jim, on Sunday. July 26. A celebration of Jim’s life was held on Thursday, July 30, in the Halkirk hall with Pastor Jim Culham and Phil Doan leading the service. Bette and Jim recently celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary.

Members of the Marshall family travelled by bus on Saturday to lay Doug Marshall’s ashes to rest at the Castor cemetery. The family then toured the Marshall homestead northeast of Halkirk, where their granddad, Slim Marshall, grew up.

We are pleased to report that Celia ( Sis) Creasey is now making her home in Heritage House in Stettler.

Our best wishes go out to Ida Bailey who is a patient in the Stettler hospital.

Spending several days with Doug and Virginia Duke was Virginia’s niece Brenda Howe, Colten and Sierra from High Level.

Irene Schilling had her sister-in-law Margaret Kros from Strathmore visiting with her.

Anne Neilson, Shirley Brodersen and Clarence and Anne Allen were in Hanna where they enjoyed the old time jubilee.
