Fifth break-in at Lac la Hache dump

Barbara Hansen’s regular correspondence for the Lac la Hache area

I can’t believe it, the culprits are at it again! On Feb. 15 the garbage dump was broken into again, this time there was forced entry into the workers’ shack and fuel was taken from the machines there.

That makes it five times since the beginning of the New Year. Most of these break-ins happen at night or on Thursdays when the garbage dump is closed.

I would ask if anyone sees any suspicious goings-on during the closed hours to please inform the authorities so that the culprits can be dealt with accordingly.

We need this service and would hate to lose it because of a couple rotten apples in our community.

Hockey fundraiser

The hockey fundraiser on Feb. 18 was an absolute success!

The bleachers were full of spectators, the games were fun and I have heard murmurs of even inviting more teams to participate next year.

Many thanks to the Old Timers Group for their generous donation of over $4,000 in support of our arena, it is greatly appreciated!

The hockey/skating for the season is fast coming to a close with the ice off time being set for March 15.

The last thing I saw posted as an event was a fun hockey night for the ladies hockey teams on March 10. The Pickleball teams are chomping on the bit to get started for the year and have indicated that they will help with the drying out process of the arena.

Crib tournament

Despite the snowy weather, the crib tournament held at the Pioneer Centre was an astounding success with 28 people attending.

Everyone had a super great time and enjoyed a light luncheon, play resumed and at the end of it all, there were three top prizes awarded of $60, $45 and $30.

The next scheduled crib tournament will be held on April 28, hope to see you all there!

Community club

The Lac la Hache Community Club held its annual general meeting on Feb. 27 and is happy to announce that several new members have joined.

It is the first time in history that two junior members have joined – way to go Akira Logan and Samara Masun, nice to see you so community-minded at your age!

We are fortunate to have three new directors this year, George Lee, Georgina Lisoway and Elisha Logan – welcome aboard! The board remains the same as last year: Larry McCrea President, Wendy Williams Vice President, Jeanette McCrea Treasurer and Barbara Hansen Secretary. We are all looking forward to another fabulous year.

Fire Smart

There will be a Fire Smart Public Meeting held at the Community Hall on March 8 at 7:30 p.m. It is an opportunity to learn what to do to reduce the fire potential on your property and all about safe pile burning and why it is done.

Come out to this informative meeting, some valuable information to be learned.


The Celebration of Life for Bob Lehto was very well attended with all the chairs being filled and then standing room only.

It was a great tribute to Bob who was very well liked and respected in the community!

The formal service was short and sweet with a lot of time for visiting and mingling afterwards with a delicious luncheon following.
