Oyster fry brings good crowd

The Halkirk Elks once again garnered a full house to enjoy their annual feed of oysters and all the trimmings. Auctioneer Dick Creasey was in charge of the white elephants and money raised from it goes into the communities youth programs with a portion designated for the National Elks fund for children.

Awards night was held at the school on Thursday evening. Each Mother Teresa student receives a plaque and each year their achievements are engraved on it, because our school believes that each achievement is worthy of merit. Jillian Schaffner began the evening by singing O’Canada. Amber Neilson was awarded the citizenship award and was also winner of the female athletic award. Max Schaffner received the male athletic award while Jonathan and Simon Muncy and Ryan Dahmer each received perfect attendance awards. Cale Neufeld was given the reading award. Michelle Prediger Nanius came back to present awards. Former teachers Lindsey Sawchuk and Jeanene Oberg also attended as did trustee Rob Nichols. Congratulations to all the students.
