Bridge Lake Fair’s (BLF) directors recently reviewed the new entry booklet.
They remind residents that, for the first time, those who enter corporate baking competitions – cookies, pies or bread – will receive regular fair points, as well as any prizes awarded by Country Fair Baking.
This was changed, so corporate competitors do not “lose out” on points and potentially miss their chance at winning the Grand Aggregate.
Entry booklets are at all local general stores, Horse Lake Garden Centre, Lone Butte Gardens, Donex photography counter, or call Marion Mickelsen at 250-593-4354.
Interlakers have been saddened by the recent passing of three residents.
Bridge Lake’s Peter Lanosky passed away May 22, at the age of 62. Peter was an expert preserver of old books and documents, and taught a class for Bridge Lake Community School.
Deepest sympathy is extended to his wife Bonnie and family. A Celebration of Life will be held at his home, 7833 Bell Rd. on June 29 at 2 p.m.
Fawn Lake’s Glynis Dayman lost her long-fought battle with leukemia on June 8, at the age of 62. An Interlakes Cattlebelle, Glynis was very well-known in this area.
Sincere sympathy is extended to her husband, Joe, and daughters Diana, Bobbi-Jo and Nicki, and their families. A Celebration of Life will be held at Interlakes Hall on June 29 at 2 p.m.
A longtime resident of North Bridge Lake Road, Amy Switzer passed away June 13 in Victoria, at the age of 93. A graveside funeral was held here, at the Lakeview Cemetery, on June 22. Condolences are extended to Amy’s family and many friends.
Some time ago, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) circulated a survey on waste management.
Results were relatively specific, and last year, the Lac la Hache site was the first to incorporate new parameters.
This year, according to the CRD, Interlakes Landfill Site on Horse Lake Road will become manned with improved facilities and specific hours. It will no longer be open 24/7, and recycling facilities are expected in 2014.
Interlakes residents extend sincere condolences to Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett on the loss of her husband, Jack, on June 8.
