The Lone Butte Community Hall was full at the Celebration of Life honouring Evelyn Nelson on Sunday afternoon on December 3rd. Evelyn was an honorary lifetime member of three community groups, the Lone Butte, Horse Lake Community Association, The Lone Butte Historical Association and of the Creekside Senior Centre.
If anyone ever needed a helping hand or some baking was done for a fundraiser or special community event, Evelyn was always there to help.
There was much reminiscing by Evelyn’s family, with much laughter and even a few tears. With nine children, 39 grandchildren and 55 great-grandchildren, the two most important things to Evelyn were family and community and she will be missed by everyone who knew her.
There are only two weeks left until the school Winter Break which is from Dec. 25 to Jan. 5.
This year, the Christmas concert is on Dec. 21 at 6:30 p.m. with a dress rehearsal at 12:30 p.m. on the same day.
Seventy-five students from Horse Lake Elementary School will be travelling to Millsite Lodge and Carefree Manor to perform a gift of music to the elderly residents of our community on Dec. 15 with Mrs. Dickson, Mrs. Matwick and Mrs. Ramsay.
