Quilter Marilynne Brager, who has been with Cariboo Calico Quilters for more than 20 years, is the guest in Bridge Lake Library’s Community Showcase for September.
She really enjoys doing scrap quilts – lap, baby and full size.
“For me, it’s extremely relaxing, very creative, and I dearly love the people involved. I’ve made some very good friends,” she explains.
Marilynne was a co-judge at this year’s Bridge Lake Fair.
The Interlakes BCRA Rodeo Committee congratulates this year’s all-around cowboy, Cole Scott; and all-around cowgirl, Candace Chevalier.
Cole won a halter donated by Royal LePage, while Candace’s prize halter was donated by Safeway.
Taylor Cherry took the high-point junior award to win the Junior Buckle donated by Steve Brown, in memory of his father, Gordon Brown. Taylor also had the fastest junior barrels time to win a halter donated by Lazy B Saddle & Tack.
Ginelle Talarico was the fastest at ladies’ barrels, and won a halter from the Log House.
Residents were deeply saddened when Moira Davies passed away Aug. 12 at the age of 72.
Moira and her husband, Larry, and three wee children moved to Deka in 1970, making them the first permanent residents after the “pioneers.”
Moira was a founding member of Deka’s Ladies Auxiliary, and a keen bridge player.
She will be sorely missed by countless friends. Deepest sympathy is extended to Larry, Shelley, Leanne and Patrick, and their families.
A celebration of life will be held at Deka Fire Hall at 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving Saturday (Oct. 11).
The Interlakes Economic Association’s next big event is a tractor pull from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Interlakes Corner on Sept. 14.
Competitors should pre-register by Sept. 7 at V-Squared (any day except Tuesdays and Wednesdays); and they should plan to arrive for setup at 9 a.m. on Sept. 14.
