Interlakes Economic Association hosting a Show ‘n Shine

Community news happening around the Bridge Lake and Interlakes area

Four-and-a-half- year-old Sophia

In addition to music at Interlakes Corner on Friday evenings, the Interlakes Economic Association’s next big event is the inaugural Show ’n Shine from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Aug. 24, for cars and motorcycles.

There is no registration fee, but participants, who should arrive around 9 a.m., are asked to register by Aug. 17. Just drop by V-Squared at Interlakes Corner any day except Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Food will be available at the Show ‘n Shine, as will entertainment, and the “best” vehicles will receive prizes.


Fundraiser changes

This year, instead of a Thanksgiving Sale, Sulphurous Lake District Volunteer Firefighters’ Association Ways & Means Committee is having a flea market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Aug. 30.

This will include books, crafts, baked goods and stacks of yard-sale goodies.


Hicks showcased

Jim Hicks is the guest artiste in Bridge Lake Library’s Community Showcase for the month of August.

Jim’s woodwork is well-known, especially his unique birdhouses. His creations can usually be found at Loon Bay Saturday markets in the summer.


Free space

Vendors wanting a free space at the Aug. 17 Bridge Lake Fair at Interlakes Hall should call the writer as soon as possible.

All spaces are outdoors so vendors should come prepared for any and all weather conditions.



Friends wish every health and happiness to Stephanie Schiemann, who married her longtime boyfriend, Karim Hemani, on July 20 in Toronto.

Steffi is now a qualified naturopath.



Belated birthday wishes go to Carissa Ruscheinsky who turned 18 on July 26.

Birthday bubbly also goes to Lorraine Jerema, Eva Ruscheinsky, Donna Watson and Bob Pernoski. Destiny Schroeder becomes a teenager July 31, so 13 huge balloons are sent to her.



Call the writer for contact numbers.
