After many years following lack of creek water, the Watch Lake-Green Lake Community Association (WLGLCA) is planning to have the Duck Races at Olsen’s Flats on Sunday, May 17 of the May long weekend. The creek is flowing so Baby Ducks will take to the water. The Duck Race is a fundraiser that started in 1996 for the Community Association. The Ducks will go on sale at local Resorts in early May and at $5 a head, they sell very fast. More details will be available as to where to purchase the Baby Ducks and the prizes in my future columns.
WLDWI Bake Sale
The Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute (WLDWI) Annual Christmas Bake Sale held on Thursday, Dec. 19 at the Cariboo Mall was a huge success. At the end of the day, they made $391. The WI would like to thank all the bakers who donated baked goods, the volunteers for their hard work as well as the generous buyers.
