Volleyball, cross-country running step up to plate at Mother Teresa



Volleyball season is in full swing and Mother Teresa School in Halkirk is able to field both boys’ and girls’ teams this year.

Home games are scheduled for Oct. 19 and 26, so visit the school and support the local kids.

Eighteen students from Mother Teresa participated in the CARA cross country run held at Theresetta in Castor on Tuesday.

Congratulations to Sherry Jamieson, who received her quarter-century award from ATCO Power last weekend. At a banquet in the Hotel Arts in Calgary, she was presented with the S.D. Southern plaque in recognition of and appreciation for her years of service. Hubby Doan accompanied her.

Matt Koenraadt represented the Halkirk Elks at a leadership educational session in Red Deer last Saturday and Sunday.

Next Tuesday (Oct. 18) is a busy day in Halkirk. Flu shots are available at the Senior Centre from 10 a.m. to noon. In the evening, the seniors are hosting their regular monthly pot-luck supper, followed by floor curling, while at Mother Teresa school, the students will be honoured at their awards night ceremonies, commencing at 7 p.m.

Some other dates to mark on your calendar are:

The Elks annual oyster fry and white elephant sale is Saturday, Oct. 22. All Elk members are challenged to donate an unusual item for the auction.

On Oct. 29, there will be a community pot-luck, followed by inspirational music at 6 p.m.

The Elks will host the community fall supper on Nov. 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. and they will be phoning the community for help with that big undertaking.
