WLDWI Bake Sale
The Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute (WLDWI) are planning to have their Easter Bake Sale on Thursday, April 18 at the Cariboo Mall from 10 a.m. until the goodies are sold out. If you want more information, please contact Ruth Kachur at 250-395-1163 or email email@example.com. Their meetings are on the third Wednesday of every month, except July and August, at the Watch Lake Community Hall (WLCH) at 11:30 a.m.
They also contribute to the gymkhana’s in July and August, so come out and see what they are all about. The next meeting is on April 17.
Garage Sale Items
When you start your spring cleaning and are thinking about discarding any used items, please remember the Watch Lake/North Green Lake VFD Auxiliary’s (WLNGLVFDA) annual garage and bake sale in May.
Items should be in fairly good condition and when donating small electrical appliances, indicate whether they are in working condition or not.
No large appliances will be accepted (stoves, fridges, washers or dryers) as these items are very difficult to sell and the fire department has to dispose of them if not bought. If you have any items to donate, please contact the Gisele Poliseno at 250-395-9082 for drop-off.
Watch Lake Community Hall
If you would like to rent the Watch Lake Community Hall for receptions like weddings or anniversaries, birthday parties, get-togethers, meetings and other activities, please contact Joni Guenther at 250-456-7330.
She will gladly book the days you require for that special day.
The WLNGLVFD meets every Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. New volunteers are always welcome. If you can find the time, come and join.
If you are interested and would like more information on the department’s training, please contact Fire Chief Guy Poliseno 250-395-9082 or Deputy Chief Mark Bulman 250-456- 2151.
The WLNGLVFD Auxiliary’s next meeting is on April 13 at the Shorty Horn Fire Hall (Hall #1) starting 10:00 a.m.
