The Greeny Lake Volunteer Fire Department held its open house and Cariboo Regional District chair Al Richmond drew the lucky raffle ticket winners for the GLVFD Super Boat Raffle 2013 on Aug. 31 at the Greeny Lake Fire Hall on Timothy Lake Road.

Fire department member Sue Fox noted all of the winners of this year’s annual raffle were either full- or part-time residents of the South Cariboo.

The grand prize fishing boat went to a young couple from Forest Grove, as Brad Forster’s ticket #1211 won the 14-foot G3 Aluminum Boat, 25 horse power Yamaha motor, electric trolling motor and Garmin 145 Sounder.

Fox says Forster’s wife bought the ticket hoping she would win a prize for her husband whose birthday is in September.

Second prize went to Chris Bunting (ticket #218) who won the Outcast Pontoon Boat.

Third prize went to Betty Brown-John (ticket #513) who won the Bradley Smoker.

Fox says Brown-John bought a ticket at the Greeny Lake Campground this summer while visiting with friends and said the prize she really wanted was the smoker.

Brown-John lives at Lac la Hache and loves to smoke kokanee, so that’s why she had her heart set on the smoker.

Fourth prize went to John Digman (ticket #838) who won the Sage Combo Fly Rod. Fifth prize went to Thomas Moeller (ticket #877) for the portable fish finder, and the sixth-place prize went to Bob Hamill (ticket #1320) who took home the Minn Kota Electric Motor.

The GLVFD members thank everyone who purchased a ticket on the raffle and made it such a great success.

 

Bingo open again

Lac la Hache Bingo has been cancelled the past couple weeks due to much dust from the ongoing upgrades and facelift of the Lac la Hache Community Hall.

But the good news for bingo-goers is their favourite game will resume tonight (Sept.) 11, with the doors opening at 6 p.m. and bingo starting at 7.
