I was disappointed when the groundhog predicted another six weeks of winter and what I really did not expect was that Mother Nature would dump it all on us in a one-week time frame! Once again our lives were disrupted, freezing rain and tons of snow, so much so that some of us are still trying to dig ourselves out. Travelling was out of the question causing many events to be cancelled. At least now the sun is out and shining and many events are coming up in the new few weeks!
Exciting news for the Greeny Lake Volunteer Fire Department! Sincere thanks are going out to Chris Nickless of the South Cariboo Fire Relief Fund and to Kim Taylor and Ron Graves of the Lions Club for their generous donation of $5,000. These funds will enable the Volunteer Fire Department to purchase a floating pump.
The Old Timers Hockey team is holding a fundraising tournament on Feb. 18 for our local arena. The plan is to have a total of nine games which will be open for public viewing. The concession will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. At this time they are desperately looking for more volunteers to help out in the concession, all help will be greatly appreciated! Please give George Lee a call at 250-644-6412 if you can donate any of your time that day.

It is with great regret and sadness in my heart that I report that Bob Lehto, former owner of the Lac la Hache Food Mart passed away suddenly on Feb. 11. Bob was a wonderful person, very well liked and respected in the community, we will all miss him so much.
