Read all about it: Halkirk students check out WHL

The Halkirk grades 4, 5 and 6 students won tickets to a Western Hockey League game

The Halkirk grades 4, 5 and 6 students won tickets to a Western Hockey League game between the Edmonton Oil Kings and Kamloops Blazers through the reading program, “Give it a shout.”

Schools who participate in the program do the required reading and enter their name.

The Halkirk students were among 17 lucky schools to receive free tickets and have front-row seats. The game was enjoyed by both the students and their chaperons.

Good going, Mother Teresa!

We send special greetings out to Janette Berry on the occasion of her 80th birthday on Dec. 9. Helping celebrate was her sister, Jean Anderson, along with her daughters Sandi and Gordon Klaus and Nancy Chick, with her granddaughter Addison Rock, as well as granddaughter Stacy and Darcy Erion.

Congratulations to Brad and Erica Engel on the arrival of an eight-pound, six-ounce girl, Sloan Marie, born Dec. 11 in Edmonton. She is the third grandchild for Don and Kjerene Engel and the sixth great-grandchild for Louie and Fern Engel.

Congratulations to Mike and Leanne Lougheed of Stettler on the birth of a seven-pound, 10-ounce daughter, Emily Ann, born Dec. 13 in Stettler. This is the first grandchild for Terry and Donna Howe.

Our best wishes go out May Jamieson, who is a patient in the Stettler hospital.

Sympathy is extended to Trish and Garth Dowling on the loss of Trish’s grandmother, Helen Pigeon of Castor, last week.

Our junior high was able to field both boys’ and girls’ basketball teams this season, and league play is now underway.

Christmas parties have been held in the area for the last few weekends.

Get-well wishes to Flo Demyen, who has been in the hospital recently.

Irene Schilling had a early Christmas last Saturday, having her son Kim and grandson Jesse down from Wainwright.

Dana and Verna Perry held an early Christmas on Saturday when their sons, Justin and Kevin, Krista and family were at home.

Greg and Laura Kent, Rob Kent and friends from Rocky returned from a seven-day holiday at a resort near Cancun. They toured the Mayan ruins, climbed the pyramids, went parasailing, rented sea-doos and sat on the beach.

Ryan and Tara Schilling, accompanied by Amy and Tanner Spady and Keith and Janine Erion, attended the NFR finals in Las Vegas, returning on Saturday.

We send Christmas wishes out to all our outof-town and out-of-country readers. May the blessings of Christmas be with you and yours.
