Community member deeply missed

Gisele Poliseno’s regular correspondence for the North Green Lake and Watch Lake area

With heavy hearts, the community is saddened to learn of the passing of Barbara Thurston on Nov. 9. Barb was a valuable member and treasurer of the Watch Lake-North Green Lake VFD Auxiliary for many years and will be deeply missed.

Sincere sympathy to her husband Ron Thurston, family members and all her friends. A tea, in memory of Barbara, will be held at a later date.

Christmas Party

Just a friendly reminder, to our community, that the Watch Lake/Green Lake Community Association (WLGLCA) will be having a Christmas party on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Watch Lake Community Hall (WLCH).

Doors will open at 5 p.m. with the potluck dinner at 6.

A surprise visitor will be coming at 7:30 p.m.

There will be goodies for registered children. Please contact Helen Hicks at 250-456-7718 or Joni Guenther at 250-456-7330 to register your children’s name, age and sex of the child, as well as, how many adults will be attending and what food item you will bring for the potluck dinner.

The association will supply the ham and turkey for this event.

The cut-off for the children’s registration will be Saturday, Dec. 1, no exceptions. Children not registered after this date will not receive goodies. The cut-off for the number of people coming will be on Wednesday, Dec. 5, as the association will be setting up on Friday morning.

Once again, please call either Helen or Joni to let them know how many are coming. A non-perishable food item donation to the food bank would be greatly appreciated.

Hall Decorating

The WLGLCA will be decorating the community hall for the Christmas party on Friday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m.

If you have some time, please come and join the fun. Bring a lunch.
