Entry books for annual Bridge Lake Fair out in stores

Community news happening around the Bridge Lake and Interlakes area

Bridge Lake Fair directors Marion Mickelsen

At the Bridge Lake Fair’s June 3 meeting, directors checked out the new fair entry booklet and the new first-place ribbons for children’s competition entries.

Children are reminded there will be a best-dressed bicycle parade this year, with $10 and $5 prizes for ages five to eight, and ages nine to 12. The very popular old-fashioned races will be back, as will the cakewalks.

Entry booklets, covering everything you could possibly want to enter – baking, handicrafts, photography, garden and farm produce – are in all local general stores.

Retirement party

A retirement party for Carney Myers will be held at Lone Butte Community Hall on June 25, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

All colleagues, former and current, parents, students, and friends are invited to join us in wishing her well. Everyone is welcome.

Bridge Lake Stampede

Make plans to attend the 65th Bridge Lake Stampede at the Bridge Lake Rodeo Grounds on June 28.

Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, $5 for children aged 6 to 12, and children five years and under are admitted free.

A pancake breakfast will be available from 8 a.m., slack (extra events) starts at 9 a.m., and the main events start at noon.

Bring your children for the pig scramble and tug o’ war, and come enjoy all the hair-raising thrills of the rodeo.

Age-friendly meeting

South Cariboo residents are invited to the Age-friendly Planning Cafe in the Valley Room behind the Red Coach Inn in 100 Mile House on June 24 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The meeting is for seniors (and everyone interested in making a difference for seniors in our community) to have conversations, make connections, focus on what is important to improve quality of life living in the South Cariboo, and contribute to solutions.
