The Mother Teresa school students held their annual Christmas concert on Wednesday afternoon. The entire school shares in presenting songs and skits of the season and closes with the Nativity. Santa also put in an appearance and presented candy bags to the youngsters while the adults enjoyed a lunch hosted by the parent council.

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.

Sympathy of the community goes out to the family and friends of Katie Schultz, who passed away on Wednesday at the Castor hospital. Services will be held on January 5 at the Catholic church in Castor.

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. They enjoyed the touristy activities like quading in the mountains and snorkeling, but the warm weather was best of all. Don’t forget the Elks’ New Year’s Eve party at the hall. Advance tickets only. And to all our readers we extend the wish for health and happiness in 2010.
