Sad passing

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.
