Seniors to work casino in Red Deer in August

If you can lend a helping hand, please contact Rose at 403-884-2237.

The Halkirk Prairie Short Line Club will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sundays as soon as the nice weather hits. If the R.R. crossing lights are flashing, then the station is open and anyone is welcome to drop in.

The seniors held their monthly potluck followed by a business meeting. They will be working the Casino in Red Deer on August 15 and 16. If you can lend a helping hand, please contact Rose at 403-884-2237. Next meeting is on Tuesday, May 16. Floor curling and bingo will end in June.

Paul and Jacquie Dietrich, Rose Koenraadt, Wendy Ashbacher and Anne Neilson were among the floor curlers at the Hub in Stettler last Tuesday.

Sympathy is extended to Kent and Evelyn Johnson and family on the passing of Evelyn’s brother, Alex Montbriand, of Fort Qu’Appelle, Sk. on Monday, April 17.

Congratulations to Terri Kneeland and Tim Clausen on the birth of a 7 lb. 5 oz. daughter, Eloise Estelle, born on Good Friday, April 14 at Highgate in London, England. This is the second grandchild for Rod and Corrie Kneeland.

Harold and Velma Chick hosted their family on Saturday, April 22 at the Hall for an Easter dinner get together. Due to the bad weather some were unable to attend, but the 50 folks that were there spent the day visiting and enjoying Easter activities. A new miniature baby goat was the centre of attention. The Easter bunny left him for Grandpa David to share.
