Lac la Hache Christmas Craft Fair and Bazaar great

Awesome collection of gifts; there was something for everyone

The Christmas Craft Fair and Bazaar at the Lac la Hache Community hall was very well attended on Nov. 5-6. The feedback was positive from both the vendors and the shoppers.

The Christmas Craft Fair and Bazaar was very well attended both Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 5-6), and there was nothing but positive feedback from the vendors and the shoppers.

A great selection of wares was available; there was something for everyone: home canning, baking, jewelry, spices, wooden toys, hand-painted glasses, ornaments, handicrafts and much more.

Thanks goes to everyone for working so hard to make it all happen and to those who made donations for the door prizes.

Arena busy

The arena was also kept very busy as on Nov. 5 was a training day for sharpening the Zamboni blades at Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena.

On Nov. 6, there were two tournaments that took most of the day, finally wrapping up the afternoon with the public skating sessions.

Hot water is now available for showers thanks to Percy Ogden and his crew for installing the new water tanks.

I have heard that a $500 donation was received from one of the men’s hockey teams towards that project, and it’s appreciated.

Fire department news

The Lac la Hache Volunteer Fire Department (LLHVFD) spent Oct. 5 with driver skills training, and fun was had by all during the obstacle course.

The ladies auxiliary is organizing for its annual Christmas Hamper program. Christmas hampers for families in need will once again be distributed by the LLHVFD prior to the holiday.

Please drop off non-perishable contributions beginning Nov. 17 to the following locations: Race Trac Gas, Post Office, the elementary school, Rolf Zeis Arena, the community hall, Pioneer Society, Hungry Bear, Red Crow and Clancy’s.
