Goose hunting season is underway in our area. Though it’s early days, a few birds are beginning to head south. The snow and cold rain this week made all of us think that maybe it’s time to head south, too.

The Halkirk Elks had 26 members and friends staffing the Jackpot Casino in Red Deer on Monday and Tuesday. This is part of their community fundraising efforts.

We welcome another young couple to our community. Roland and Sharla Stirling from Castor have moved into the trailer home, formerly occupied by Kathryn Morlock. They have two pre-school daughters: Annabelle, who is three, and one year old Kelsey. Roland is a County of Paintearth employee.

Kent Johnson spent a couple of days in Red Deer hospital having some more work done on his broken arm. Get well soon!

Matt and Jessica McKnight and their daughter Ava have returned to Bietigheim-Bassinger, Germany, where Matt will play hockey with their local team. This is his third year on this European team and they played their first game this past week.

Shane Doan is spending his 18th hockey season in Phoenix, Arizona. Only now a name change means he’s playing with the Arizona Coyotes.

Dale Kent attended the final, for this season, District Elks golf tourney hosted by the Hanna Elks on Friday.

Dave and Linda Chick spent a week camping and fishing at Slave Lake. They were joined by Gerry and Janie Slemp of Camrose.

Mandy Gonda and girls spent Saturday enjoying the Corn Maize at Lacombe on a Co-op sponsored staff outing.

Jan and Rose Koenraadt visited on Friday with Steve and Edie Woodrow in Blackfalds.

Coming up: Sept. 18 – regular hall board bingo; Sept. 24 – Mother Teresa awards night – 7 p.m. at the school; Sept. 26 – students will participate in the Terry Fox run supporting cancer research – please support the students asking for pledges; Oct. 2 and Oct. 9 – Hall board Ham and Turkey bingo just in time for Thanksgiving dinner; Oct. 18 – Elks annual Oyster Fry and White elephant sale – this event is always sold out, so speak up for tickets early.
