The family ice-skating event on Sepa Lake on Jan. 29 was a great success.

There were more than 60 folks attending with a lot of children enjoying the skating rink and then warming up with a free hot chocolate and a muffin. When folks weren’t skating or playing on the ice, they could warm up by sitting on a bale of hay and enjoying the crackling blaze.

Our local 108 Mile Lions Club did a great job clearing off the snow to get down to the ice and then the local fire department flooded the area to make it smooth. The Lions had to clear the snow off again a couple of days later, following the dump of snow on Jan. 28.

As a community activity, the youngsters had a great time and the rink was big enough for all to be able to have great skating. Let’s hope they do it again next year.
