Interlakes community member will be missed

Diana Forster's regular column for the Interlakes area.

Interlakes residents were deeply saddened to learn of the Dec. 19 sudden passing of Julian Kenney.

Julian was always a strong supporter of Interlakes organizations, especially Bridge Lake School, and his charm, presence and wholehearted efforts will be missed.

Sincere sympathy is extended to his wife, Linda, their family and many friends.


Controlled burn confusion

In mid-January, a startled Bridge Lake resident noticed a huge fire on Heritage Island.

Concerned, she called the Interlakes Volunteer Fire Department (IVFD) who came out to survey the situation.

In the meantime, the resident’s husband had called the RCMP because he thought “wild parties” were afoot.

The RCMP called back to inform them that it was a Cariboo Regional District (CRD) controlled burn.

Whilst happy that “things were under control,” the resident was amazed that the CRD had apparently not notified IVFD in advance.


Mountain Spruce Community Centre Events

New this season are Yoga classes at Mountain Spruce Community Centre Events (previously Sulphurous Firehall.) Prairie James will instruct every Tuesday morning from 9:30 to 11 a.m., for a drop-in fee of $10.
