Duck Race cancelled until further notice

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

This is to inform our residents that all Watch Lake-Green Lake Community Association monthly meetings, as well as the Duck Race scheduled on May 17, has been cancelled until further notice due to the COVIC-19 pandemic.

As for the Gymkhanas in July and August, this will be discussed with the members at the beginning of June to decide whether or not to hold the event. I will let our community know the outcome as soon as I am informed about this decision.

WLNGLVFD Auxiliary

After much discussion, the members of the Watch Lake/North Green Lake VFD Auxiliary decided to cancel the AGM on May 28 and future meetings, as well as, postponing the yearly Bake/Garage Sale scheduled on May 16 until further notice. This is due to the situation with the COVIC-19 pandemic.

The ladies will wait until June to decide if the sale will be rescheduled or cancelled.
