On the 16, also at the ICC, BLF anticipates hosting the annual Interlakes Show ’n Shine, previously hosted by Interlakes Economic Association.

The driving horse show will be on again.

Mid-term directors comprise Jaime Cameron, Evelyn Crawford, Lorraine Jerema, Joanne Levick and vice-president Sharon Stewart.

President Marion Mickelsen, treasurer Pat Lytton, secretary Diana Forster, and Andrea Glatz were all re-elected for two-year terms.

Celeste Faessler was re-elected for a one-year term.

The BLF is delighted to welcome Fawn Lake’s Susan Armstrong and Sheridan Lake’s Terri Brown to the board.

Twin Lake’s Robin Granneman, and Terri’s daughter, Taya, were happily welcomed to the “working crew.”

The 2020 start-up meeting is Feb. 4, 2020; new members are always welcome.
