May 23 saw the Pioneer Tea and Antique Appraisals, hosted by Bridge Lake Community Centre Society, at the Interlakes Community Centre.
Expert appraiser Theodore Pappas, aka The Mumbling Muse, was kept busy all day appraising various wondrous pieces, and visitors enjoyed the photos and stories of our pioneers.
Recreation Commission AGM
After Roe Lake & District Recreation Commission’s annual general meeting on May 13, the executive was still in place: president Wendy Chase, 250-593-0203; co-vice presidents Lorraine Jerema and Craig Charlton; secretary Pam Canty; and treasurer Gyl Connaty.
They are supported by sitting directors Andrea Glatz, Norm Granberg, Rene Lafavor, Marion Mickelsen, Carney Myers and Barb Weston. Jil Freeman and Ken Weadick were newly elected to the board.
Bridge Lake Rodeo
Get ready for the Bridge Lake Stampede at the Bridge Lake Rodeo Grounds on July 4 (not June 27.)
Gates open at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast, and the main events start at noon. Come enjoy all the hair-raising rides, as well as children’s pig scramble and tug o’ war. Admission is $15 for adults; $10 for seniors; and $5 for children aged five to 12. Children under five get in free.
The community was saddened to learn of the May 15 passing of Bridge Lake’s Jo Sedlar, aged 87.
This writer has particularly fond memories of Jo; first from Rainbow Lodge in Langley, and then here, where she always let me park in her yard adjacent to the Bridge Lake Stampede.
She will be missed by many friends.
Birthday bubbly goes to octogenarians Sophia Dunne, Lorraine Faessler and June Forsberg.
Many congratulations go to June and Vince Forsberg on their 62nd wedding anniversary, and to Dolores and John Frame for their 59th.
