Donations being accepted for family house fire victims

Third place in the Interlakes Hay Bale Art contest went to the “Hula Dancer.” It was created by Jil Freeman and Jackie Williamson.

The Cariboo Presbyterian Church (CPC) sponsors Interlakes Youth Groups, Teen Space and Kids Space, and they are accepting donations for the Duits family members who are heavily involved with the youth groups, and who lost their home in a July 30 fire.

Donation cheques should be made out to the CPC (only,) and must have a separate note attached stating the funds are for the Duits family.

Mail your cheques to CPC; Box 156; La la Hache, B.C.; VOK 1T0.
