The South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (SGLVFD) is having a work bee today (July 10), starting at 10 a.m.
Everyone is welcome to join the firefighters do a general cleanup of the property and the fire hall buildings. Let’s make our fire department proud of its community.

Practices are held every other Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.
The next practices will be held on July 16, 20, 30 and Aug. 3. Mark these dates on your calendar and remember new recruits are always welcome.
The SGLVFD Community Day and Open House is slated for Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and it promises to be an exciting day.
There will be running races, fire hose relays, tug-of-war, firefighter demonstrations and folks just might be able to climb in the fire truck and imagine they are fighting fires.
A lunch will be served with hotdogs, ice cream, drinks and other goodies.
The day starts at 8 a.m. with the two-mile fun run behind a fire truck.
The schedule is as follows:
• 11 a.m. – Official opening
• 11:30 a.m. – Firefighters demonstration
• Noon – Fire hose relays with teams of four – preteen, teen, post-teen categories
• 12:30 p.m. – Tug-of-war – put a team together to challenge your friends, neighbours and other families, and finally the firefighters will take on anyone.
The cost of participation is only a Loonie per person per event. This will definitely be a family and youth-friendly day.
Please note the appreciation dinner date has been changed to Sept. 7.
More details will be available as the day approaches.
The Green Lake Snowmobile Club’s Open House will be on Aug. 17 and organizers hope to make it not only informative about the club and its trails, but also have something for the whole family to enjoy.
