There was a host of Mother's Day events across Stettler region

A host of Mother's Day events held across region

Those so wishing could eat their way across the region on Mother's Day.

Starting in the east country, the Halkirk Elks hosted its annual Mother's Day pancake Breakfast at the Halkirk Community Hall. 

The breakfast ran from 9-11 a.m. on May 12, and the first 75 mothers received a flower!

Halkirk's Elks club hosting a Mother's Day breakfast is a longstanding tradition in the community.

Heading west, Red Willow hosted its breakfast as well.

Red Willow Ag Society held their annual Mother’s Day Breakfast at Red Willow Hall on May 12, from 8:30-11:00 AM.  The menu for breakfast included pancakes, sausages, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and juice.

The men from the community, including the County of Stettler Coun. Paul McKay, were busy mixing pancakes, scrambling eggs, and preparing tables for their special guests.  The community men cooking and serving breakfast has been a tradition for many years.

The hall was bustling with guests who came out to enjoy the breakfast the men prepared.  

There was a draw for hand-carved roses in a handmade vase, donated by Lee Adam, a wood carver known as Grizz Carvings and a member of the Red Willow community.  Many hopeful mothers entered and so did their family and friends that came with them. The door prize was drawn at the end of the event, the winner being Colleen Hill.

Finally, the International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) hosted a Mother's Day Breakfast at the IOOF Hall in Erskine which ran from 9 a.m. until noon.

Proceeds from the event go towards maintaining the hall.
