.

Halkirk Herald

Alberta Avenue from the water tower East within the Village limits was recently improved with new pavement. While the crew was in town they paved an outdoor basketball court in the school yard playground.

Congratulations to Randi Howe and Ian Campbell who were married on July 9 at an outdoor ceremony in the bride’s parents farmyard, followed by a reception and dance in the Castor hall. A large crowd of family and friends, many of whom travelled from long distances, were present to witness the festivities. One of the high lights of the day was the presence of Randi’s maid of honor, Deanna Kneeland Christoffer, who recently underwent lung surgery, and her hubby Keith who was a groomsman. The newlyweds will make their home in Calgary.

Dick and Joan Neilson from Parksville, on Vancouver Island visited this week with their sister-in-law, Anne Neilson, nephew Bert, Cindy and family as well as Paul and Joyce Neilson and Rose and George High at the Paintearth lodge in Castor.

Jacqui Dietrich returned this week having spent three weeks with her mom, Elsie, in Victoria. Paul joined her for a family reunion and her mom’s 90th birthday party.

JD and Sandra Johnson,  Devon, Toryn and Aspen spent the past week in Vancouver where they visited with JD’s siblings, Kim and Daryl and girls and with Kandice, Scott and Forbes.

The 15th annual Camp Teckla concluded on Friday afternoon. A successful week under the leadership of Leighann Doan Reimer and a small army of helpers and supporters.
