Rowland sale was quite crowded

Halkirk Herald

Family and friends gathered at the hall on Sunday afternoon to shower congratulations and best wishes on new mom, Sandra Gonda and six week old Caleb.

A large crowd turned out for the Rowland sale on Saturday, despite the cold wind. The seniors appreciated the support they received at the pie and coffee table.

Enjoying the fun floor curling bonspiel in Botha on Thursday were Paul and Jacquie Dietrich, Adolf Heier, Helen Heier, Rose Koenraadt, Edna Luft and Irene Schilling.

Regular community church services, which were held on the last Sunday of each month, have been suspended due to a decline in attendance since the new year. The church is still available for special occasions.

Our sympathies are extended to Anna Taylor on the passing of her brother, Archie Wudel of Calgary this weekend.

Peggy Vockeroth returned from Hoddeson Herts, England, where she attended her uncle’s 97th birthday. While there, she went to the Roman baths and Cambridge.

Samantha Vockeroth recently secured a maternity leave position teaching Grade 2 at the Mattie McCullough school in Red Deer.

Kent and Evelyn Johnson drove to Vancouver to spend Easter with their daughters, Kim and Daryl Mackie, Taylor and Drew and Kandice and Scott Morrison and Forbes. Though the weather was cool, they report that the flowers and trees were beautiful and they had a great trip.

Coming up: May 8- Elks annual Mother’s Day pancake breakfast – 9 to 11 am; May 10 – census day; Bingo at the hall May 5.
