Senior Centre to host BBQ and potluck supper next Tuesday

On June 20, Halkirk and area residents will get together at 6 p.m. for supper.

The Senior Centre will once again be a busy place on Tuesday, June 20 with a barbecue and potluck supper to be hosted at 6 p.m.

A disappointingly small crowd turned out to celebrate Seniors’ Week when the Castor and District FCSS served ice cream floats at the Senior Centre on Tuesday morning. Guests also had a chance to decorate a t-shirt and win a door prize.

Congratulations to Ryan Dahmer, who graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Red Deer College on June 2. He was proud to be on the Presidents Honour roll this year. He will be spending the next few weeks helping on the farm. His girlfriend, Lindsey Deitz, from Castor graduated on the same day with her LPN.

Max Schaffner also graduated with a double diploma in Kinesiology this Spring. He has been certified at the Canadian training level holding his CCEP and is working with a team of healthcare professionals at the Red Deer hospital with respiratory patients. Congratulations!

The Hall board will not be holding Bingo over the summer months. Last one was on Thursday evening, June 8, and the new session will commence on September 14. Have a good summer and plan to join us in the fall.

Coming up: June 18 is the day to honour the dads and granddads in your family and also the day that you can tour the Diplomat Mine Museum on Hwy. 855, north of the river; June 20 at 6 p.m. a BBQ and potluck supper at the Senior Centre followed by their regular monthly meeting; June 24 – the Circle Square is hosting Man Hunter. Three races will be held. The first is Family Fun at 10 a.m. with ages 12 to 15-year-olds racing at 1 p.m. and lastly the 16 years plus at 3:15 p.m. Register at Halkirk@Circlesquare.ca or phone 403-884-2444 for information; Aug. 26 – Mark this day on your calendar, it’s the Elks annual Bullarama!
