‘Happy to say I belonged in Halkirk’

Kudos to the organizers of the “party of the century” in Halkirk, which celebrated its centennial this month.

Dear Editor,

Kudos to the organizers of the “party of the century” in Halkirk, which celebrated its centennial this month.

Although I hemmed and hawed about committing to attend, I am so happy that I ultimately decided to show. It was an event that was so well-organized and, of course, the weather made it all the better.

The food was superb, people were helpful and accommodating, and the best part was meeting people who I have not seen in years.

It was especially nice to see the parents of school friends who are setting a standard of aging gracefully.

Thanks to all the many hands who made this party so special to so many. An especially big round of applause to the people in charge of the amazing fireworks display.

Congratulations to the citizens of Halkirk — both past and present. I was happy to attend and happier yet to say I belonged.
