Snowmobile Club held membership drive

Diana Forster Interlakes column

In mid-November, all readied for the season, Interlakes Snowmobile Club held a membership drive in the car park at Interlakes Market. Those mentioned in the above photo were assisted by members in the van: Shirley Scott, Vic Dempster and Kathy Conway; and president Marcel DeRepentigny, who was with his snowmobile, answering various questions from the many residents dropping by for information.

Interlakes residents, especially those at Sheridan, were saddened to learn of the Nov. 14 passing of Art Greenlees, at the age of 88. Art and his late wife, Phyllis, who passed away in August 2020, ran “Greenlees on the Lake” B&B at West Sheridan for many years. Art is especially well remembered for the wonderful birdhouses he created and often donated to worthy causes. Sincere sympathy is offered to his famiy and many friends.
