Election

I spent two hours watching election coverage only to find out that the results are still unclear. Sally Watson, running in Cariboo-Chilcotin, made a good showing but was not able to catch Donna Barnett. Will the Green Party hold the balance of power? Who guessed that.

Poker

The poker tournament scheduled for May 14 was cancelled. The next game will be held June 11 at Elaine’s Poker Palace.

Play starts at 12 noon.

There were 12 players at the bingo held May 9. The big g-ball pot has not yet been won. Next bingo will be held May 23 at SMAC, with play starting at 7 p.m.

The time has come once again for the annual VFD yard sales at Green Lake. Watch posters for starting times.
