Look for some unique little collection cans that will soon be out around the community for folks to donate toward some major repairs that are needed on the Lone Butte Community Hall.

Collections will be put toward some structural construction that will only happen when the funds are in place.


Fun day

Horse Lake Elementary School had a primary and intermediate fun day recently with students having fun with various booths where they participate in a puck shoot, fish pond, face painting and other fun activities to win small prizes. Thanks go to the parent advisory council, which organized this for the students.


Unique items

Shoppers were met with some unique crafts and creations for purchase at the most recent craft sale in Lone Butte.

It is always a great way to spend part of the day and it’s a lot of fun looking at everyone’s wares, while enjoying some fresh baking and coffee. The next sale will be held May 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the community hall.

With the nice weather coming, there will be spots available outdoors for anyone who would like to come. Call Pat McKay at 250-395-2114 for more information.


Spring cleanup

On June 10 is when the community association is planning a clean up of the community hall grounds, starting at10 a.m.

If you can spare an hour or two, come out with your weed eaters, rakes and enthusiasm. For more information, call the writer.


Tai chi

Tai chi classes, instructed by Karen Broughton, will be held at the community hall on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

On the second week of each month, it will be held on the Monday. For more information, contact Boughton at 250-456-2324 or 250-706-8222.


Plans being finalized

Lone Butte Rocks organizers are counting the days until the fourth annual community celebration June 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Businesses are getting on board for the poker run, kids zone, craft sales and flea markets, as well as many other fun things, and winding up with an evening dance. Organizers have ordered sunshine and, hopefully, there will be some collector cars on hand for viewing, as well as some great outdoor entertainment for everyone’s enjoyment.

To get involved, call Heather Nelson at 250-395-3588 or the writer.


Art show

A great spread was put on at the Iron Horse Pub on April 29 for the wine-and-cheese tasting and art show display by local artist Lisa Haerttrich.

There was a wonderful showing of support and the artist recommends anyone who would like her to do some work should order sooner than later as she is expecting a set of twins in October.


Potluck dinner

Another delicious potluck dinner was held on April 29, with a few new people coming out to enjoy some good food and fun with other local residents.

It’s always a good time and always good food, so keep tuned for when the next one will be held.
