Green Lake Snowmobile Club winds season down with pig roast

The 62-pound pig was put on the spit at 7 a.m., and 11 hours later, 64 people gathered for a wonderful potluck

The annual Green Lake Snowmobile Club (GLSC) wind-up was held at the clubhouse on March 14.

The 62-pound pig was put on the spit at 7 a.m., and 11 hours later, 64 people gathered for a wonderful potluck and pig roast dinner. Many helping hands made it a great evening and community event, says event key organizer Diane Sullivan.

There were raffle prizes, a silent auction, and a 50/50 draw to help cover the cost of the event.

Sad passing

Longtime South Green Lake resident Mike Balachanoff passed away suddenly in the Lake Havasu Hospital in Lake Havasu City, Arizona on March 6.

Mike was a member of both the GLSC and the South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department and he will be missed by everyone.

The community sends its thoughts and prayers to Mike’s wife, Sherry, family and friends.

Service schedule

Judy Clarkson, who worked at the 70 Mile landfill for several years, passed away at 100 Mile District General Hospital on March 18 after a brave battle against cancer.
