Bridge Lake Fair booklets now available

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Interlakes area

Bridge Lake Fair entry booklets are now available in all local general stores, The Country Pedlar and Donex Pharmacy and department store; or call this writer or call Marion at 250-644-2418.

There are 20 categories to enter, comprising over 400 classes from Baking to Writing and everything in between. Cash prizes are awarded to three places where merited.


Long-time residents will be sad to learn that Edith Rafuse passed away May 19 at the age of 95.

Since they “retired” to Deka Lake in 1980, she and her husband, Max, were tremendous community supporters, such that the local access was known as the “Rafuse/Nordquist Access” until long after they moved “back to civilization” in 2004.

Services were held June 2.

Deepest condolences are extended to Max and their family.


Birthday bubbly goes to Becky Citra, Vera Rottluff and Olga Tomlinson.

Congratulations to Dolores and John Frame on their 62nd wedding anniversary, June 9.
