Catering numbers needed for Easter party

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

Interlakes Community Centre (ICC) Society is holding their annual free kids’ Easter party from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, April 15 at the hall. All children are welcome including those visiting their grandparents. They will enjoy games, cupcake and egg painting, refreshments and, almost certainly, the Easter Bunny will drop by.

Numbers are needed for catering purposes; call Ruth Marx at 250-593-4865.

This month’s Coffee Chat at ICC, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Monday, March 27, will hear speaker Linda Jefferson of New Roads Nutritional Consulting/Balanced Nutrition. Coffee & goodies are $2.

To clarify the new “Canada 150 People’s Choice” contest at this year’s Bridge Lake Fair (Aug. 19/20) at ICC: Each entrant, of any age, may enter any one hand- or home-made item made by that entrant. The Fair will provide one $25 prize to the winner, who shall be determined by Peoples’ Choice votes. Entry forms and cards should read “Canada 150.”



Residents extend the deepest sympathy to the family and friends of long-time Sheridan Lake rancher, Walter Kulyk, who passed away Feb. 26 at the age of 90. No memorial service is planned.



Birthday bubbly goes to Audrey Smith and Danny Jenewein, and 15 huge balloons are today (March 16) winging their way to Emma West.

Congratulations to Karen & Bruce Simundson on their 39th wedding anniversary, March 18.
