ATCO has a program for grades 4-12 where there will be two lucky students and a parent will be flown to Vancouver for the Olympics. Great opportunity for someone.

Belated birthday wishes go out to Maureen (Airey) Wiltse, who celebrated her BIG 65 on Dec. 13 while volunteering at the Roar of the Rings in Edmonton. I’m sure the family will help her celebrate over their Christmas get together.

There will be no floor curling in town until January. There will be no hall bingo until Jan. 14.

Waste Management site in Halkirk will be closed on Dec. 26.

Valley Ski Club opened on Dec 17. Two Nancy Green skiers from our area, Jacey Gamroth and Cooper Brown, were successful at the Zone 4 tryouts in Red Deer on Sunday. Congrats to all the competitors.

Dan and Clara Fowler accompanied Clara’s sister and brother-in-law, Marg and Wayne on a week’s holiday to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico.

And to all our readers we extend the wish for health and happiness in 2010.
