Fifteen brave “snow pokes” ventured out on their snowmobiles for a 27-mile ride in memory of past Green Lake Snowmobile Club (GLSC) members on Feb. 23.

When they reached their destination at Jeep Lake, club president Peter McKie and Helen Monk read out the names of 50 past members as they reminisced with stories about events and contributions they made to the club.

New riders came as far away as Horse Lake to join in the ride.

“It was a great day to get out on the groomed trails with riders who ranged in age from 16 to 82 years. A great time was had by all riders, enjoying the Cariboo winter wonderland we live in,” says McKie.

 

SMAC great

South Green Lake resident Dennis Tupman says one of the best places to shop is the Seventy Mile Access Centre (SMAC) in 70 Mile House.

“Come out and see what super bargains they have for you,” he adds

SMAC is an amazing example of how a small community can benefit through volunteer dedication and with co-operation with other agencies, such as the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.

“In my view, it is the largest and most comprehensive and affordable used item store and service centre in the Cariboo – and maybe beyond – and it’s well worth visiting.”

 

Spring fundraiser

GLSC members should have received an email with a six-page PDF attachment showing all the plants and bulbs the club is trying to sell as a fundraiser to cover expenses throughout the year.

If you haven’t received it, or you are not a member, and would like to get a copy, call this writer at 250-644-4242 or e-mail me at gailpotter0@gmail.com and I will send you a copy of this brochure.

All orders are to be in by March 10, so you must hurry.

That garden of yours will be more beautiful each year, as most of these bulbs multiply and are deer resistant.
