Art classes in session

Diana Forster's regular correspondence for the 100 Mile Free Press

Deka artist Genevieve Amy is leading “The Four Lakes Art Group.” One of her pieces

From 2 to 4 p.m. every Wednesday, Deka’s well-known artist Genevieve Amy (250-593-4544) is leading “The Four Lakes Art Group” at Mountain Spruce Community Events Centre, (MSCC) Sulphurous Lake. Interested parties should feel free to drop in, or call for further information.

MSCCS is also holding its annual Park Clean-Up on Saturday, April 15 from 10 a.m. Come join other volunteers at the Park at Mahood Lake & Burgess Roads, and earn a fire roasted hot dog.

It is with sadness and deep appreciation that the community learned that, on March 10, Roy and Olga Tomlinson retired from MSCCS.

In its recent announcement, MSCCS states that the Society owes a debt of gratitude for the continued time and effort this couple put into forming and sustaining the society. Without them, we would not have the community park which is there for all residents of Hathaway, Sulphurous, Higgins and Deka Lakes to enjoy. We thank them for their vision, time and support, and wish them all the best in the future.



A new session of Restorative Yoga commences April 25, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at ICC. Must book in advance for session. Call 250-593-4869.



Birthday bubbly goes to Lola Sullivan, Jesse Boyce and Sean Grahn.

For April 11, we send congratulations to Johann & Ken Miller, and Jen & Dave Ostlund who both celebrate 19 years of wedded bliss.
