Halkirk Herald

The seniors held their monthly supper meeting on Tuesday evening with 25 members present. Final plans were made for the “Meet and Greet” afternoon coffee held this Wednesday. Floor curling continues every Tuesday evening and bingo is held every other Tuesday afternoon.

The seniors will be working at the casino in Red Deer on Dec. 9 and 10. Their Christmas supper will be held on Dec. 16 at the special time of 5 p.m. for this month only, due to the school concert being on the same evening.

Our sympathies go out to the family of Louie Engel, who passed away on Friday, Nov. 21 at the Coronation continuing care facility. Louie celebrated his 90th birthday last April. Services will be held at the Halkirk hall at 2 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 1. His story is on page 468 of Home Fires and continues on page 70 of Volume 2.

Debbie Hronek and Maxine Baird are coaching the Castor Tigers girls’ sr. high basketball team. They compete in the northeastern division. Halkirk students on the team are Katelyn Dahmer, Jacey Gamroth, Tiana Gamroth, Haley Grice, Jillian Schaffner and Maddie Schauer. Halkirk boys on the Castor Raiders boys’ sr. high team are Liam Grice, MacQuire Kent, Simon Muncy, Lief Neufeld and Seth Neufeld. Congrats to all our Halkirk students who display great athletic skills in a wide variety of sporting events.

Two floor curling teams participated in the Stettler floor curling bonspiel last week. Paul and Jacquie Dietrich, Wendy Ashbacher and Rose Koenraadt were one team and Anne Neilson, Olga Cox, Francine Hanson and Elizabeth Raher were the other one.

Kourtney and Kassidy Hronek, who are attending school in Lethbridge, were home last weekend to take part in hunting season. Kourtney is completing an after degree in nursing and Kassidy is in a criminal justice program.

Coming up: Nov. 27 – regular bingo at the Hall; Dec 7 – Elks annual Breakfast with Santa from 9 to 11 a.m. in the hall; students will be holding a bake sale in conjunction with the breakfast; Dec. 9 and 10 – seniors at the jackpot casino in Red Deer; Dec. 11 and Dec. 18 – Ham and Turkey bingos in the hall; Dec 16 – Christmas pot luck supper at seniors’ centre at 5 p.m.; Dec. 16 – Mother Teresa annual Christmas concert at the school at 7 p.m.; Feb. 7 – Elks Seafood and Comedy night – details to follow. Mark these dates on your calendar.
