Interlakes member will be deeply missed

Diana Forster's regular correspondence for the 100 Mile Free Press

Sadly, Bob Goheen, previous owner of Interlakes Market, passed away March 19, before reading the words of thanks in my last column. I hope he knew he was appreciated.

Residents send deepest condolences to his wife, Anneli, their family and so many friends.

Those friends are invited to remember Bob from 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, April 1, at the family’s Bridge Lake home.


New exhibition

Bridge Lake Librarian Brenda Tillyer will welcome 100 Mile photographer Daryl Bell to the library’s Community Showcase for April.
