Bingo, dinner, hockey and more

Barbara Hansen’s regular correspondence for the Lac la Hache area

This last month has just flown by!

Catching the last events scheduled, doing the shopping, special baking and just getting ready for the holidays. We almost had a green Christmas and then in one short week we turned into a winter wonderland!

There would be absolutely no guessing what the community was up to – we were all doing the same thing – digging ourselves out from the snowstorms that hit.

Just to catch up a bit on some of the events that happened in December – the oldtimers hockey tournament held at the arena was an absolute success, this event did some much-needed fundraising required and we thank you all so much!


The turkey bingo was held on Dec. 12. Attendance was a bit less than last year but the fun level was just as high! The volunteers that run the bingo are currently on vacation and will return back on the job on Jan. 16. It is so hard to gauge if the timing is right as we hope for the worst of the weather to be over and travel to be safe for all!

Dinner and concert

The spaghetti dinner/silent auction and Christmas concert held by the Elementary School was also a success. The PAC did some good fundraising for this event to help with future activities for the students.


Family and friends met at the Community Hall for a celebration of life for Del Stenberg who passed away recently. Del was a long time member of our community and will be sincerely missed by all.

Paint night

Register at RB Café and Pub for the paint night scheduled for Jan. 13 at 2 p.m. All supplies are provided, no experience necessary, and opportunity to win a door prize, a free paint night and an entry to win a trip for two to Las Vegas.
