AGM and Christmas events coming up

Al Jones’ regular correspondence for the Lone Butte and Horse Lake area

If you enjoy Halloween, Lone Butte Rocks, Christmas dinner or other community events that are held each year in Lone Butte, be sure to support the Lone Butte, Horse Lake Community Association (LBHLCA) at the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) by attending at 7 p.m. on Dec. 11 at the Lone Butte Community Hall (LBCH). Without community support at the AGM, these events will not be possible under the terms and conditions of the BC Gaming Grant, so mark the date on your calendar. In addition to the elections, there will be wine and cheese at the AGM.

Christmas Craft Sale

The always popular Christmas Craft Sale will be held at the LBCH. on Dec. 1 from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Everyone is welcome, admission is free and there will be a concession. For additional information call Carmen at 1-604-862-2379 or Mary at 250-395-1994.

Christmas Dinner

The annual Christmas Dinner family potluck will be on Dec. 9 at the LBCH and doors open at 4:30 p.m. with dinner at 5 and Santa will arrive at 6.

There are only 120 free tickets so call Mary early at 250-395-1994. Guests are asked to bring a salad, vegetable, or dessert, and the rest will be supplied by the LBHLCA.

Christmas store

Horse Lake Elementary School annual Christmas store will be open from Dec. 3 to 7 and the school is looking for helpers to wrap presents and record sales. Please call Courtney at 1-604-868-1284 or email cwhite@telus.net if you can help or sign up at the PAC news board by the office. The School is looking for small boxes, plastic and gift bags.

Caboose

You may have noticed the caboose in Water Tower Park has received a facelift in the form of new siding. The Lone Butte Historical Association would like to thank Keith and Valinda Boyd for the donation of material and Dave Rastad from KADA Renovations who attached the siding and also did the new roof on the Water Tower.
