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.

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.
