Snack Shack gets new look

.

Halkirk Herald

Gwen and Pat Kroetsch are laying new floor tile in the front part of the Snack Shack. Due to new regulations the original oiled hardwood floor of the 100 year old building has to have a brighter look.

Helen Morel accompanied 27 members of her family (daughters, their spouses and her grandchildren) and her sister, Sophie Morrison from Ottawa, on a wonderful two week holiday to France where they attended the 100th birthday of Jean’s sister, Germaine.

They called themselves the Canadian delegation with the French connection as it required 8 cars to hold the group who spent four days in Paris, four days in an old Village resort as well as travels to the tourist sites around the country.

Birthday greetings to Fern Engel who celebrated her 89th birthday on July 16 at the Coronation Assisted living complex. Joining Fern and Louie were their children, Don, Doris, Wayne and Dianne and their families as well as Ferns sister, Jean Plouvier from Castor.

Get well wishes to Shirley Vanak who is recuperating at home following surgery in a Calgary hospital.

Congratulations to Leona Robertson who is proud to announce that she is a great-grandma. Dayton Primrose, a 7 lb. 14 oz. baby boy was born on July 16 to Glen and Meagan from Sundre.

A pat on the back to Aileen (Anderson) Jackson who completed the 60 km “walk to end women’s cancers” in Calgary this weekend. This is Aileen’s fourth consecutive year.

A lot of Halkirk residents were on hand to watch the Castor parade and support the rodeo events.

The descendants of William and Christina Howe gathered at the Hall on the weekend for the 66th annual Howe reunion. This year the hosts were the Stan Howe family and around 100 family members enjoyed the pot-luck supper on Saturday evening followed by music and entertainment by Terry Howe. A fun weekend with good weather and lots of visiting.

Steve and Dixie Kossowan from Cochrane visited during the week with Dixie’s mom, Doris Fowler and with Steve’s mom Kathleen Kossowan.

Bull-a-Rama date for 2011 is August 27. Mark it on your calendar.
