Rowland family holds reunion

The descendents of Tom and Sadie Rowland met in Halkirk during the long weekend in August. Organizers had chosen a Hawaiian theme, and with many in costume one hundred and five family members were treated to a delicious catered pig roast on the Saturday evening.

The fun weekend included adult and kids games and competitions, a silent auction, a dance, fireworks, lots of visiting and lots of food. The group has decided to do this again in two years.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Ella May Taylor who passed away suddenly on Friday. Services were held from the community church on August 6 with Pastor Jim Culham officiating. Burial took place in the Halkirk cemetary.

Celia Creasey quietly celebrated her 91 birthday last Friday at the Heritage House with immediate family present.

Donna Matier from Grande Prairie is visiting with her mom, Audrey Thomson, who is a patient in the Stettler hospital.

Correction: It was Dale Marshall’s ashes (not Doug’s as reported last week) who were buried at Castor cemetary. Dale passed away in February in Edmonton. Doug passed away in Lacombe this Spring.

Herbert and Regina Radke, Marlene and Robert who live near Berlin, Germany are spending two weeks visiting with Ron and Millie Radke and family. They will also visit with Edwin, Sherry and Everett in Edmonton. Herbert is a nephew to Ron.

The Johnson household was full of grandchildren last week with Forbes, Drew and Taylor from BC and Devon, Toryn and Aspen from Halkirk all visiting with Kent and Evelyn. Forbes mom Kandice also was here for a visit.

Last Sunday Jan and Rose Koenraadt along with Rose’s mom Enida Stewart from Penhold went to Wainwright and visited with Rose’s sister and brother in law Jean and Dennis Kile.

Amber Creasey returned home on Saturday from her six-week week Contike tour of 17 countries in Europe and thought Croatia the most beautiful. There were 51 young people on the tour from the U.S., Australia and Canada.
