Great ending for a successful school year in Lac la Hache

More than 200 hot rods and motorcycles are set to show up at the Hot July Nights final event on July 17 at Centennial Park. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. The exhibition will then be open to the public at 10 a.m. Several food vendors and live entertainment will be at the park as well. The event will be the grand finale to the three-day vehicle enthusiasts' celebration

Lac la Hache Elementary School ended the school year with a great family barbecue that was put on by the school staff.

The weather co-operated and the outside dining experience was a great success.

Student awards

Every student is unique and each was given special recognition at an awards ceremony.

The top award winners were: Lily Henderson who won the Lac la Hache Community Club diligence award and outstanding student; Gracie Schmid won the Deb Angels Award, for displaying traits of compassion, care and consideration; and Emma Schmid-Ritchie won the academic achievement award for excellence in all her studies.

Congratulations to Emma as she moves on to Peter Skene Ogden Secondary school in the fall.

Register now

The school is looking forward to the 2016/17 school year.

Registration is open for all grades from kindergarten to Grade 7. School will reopen on Sept. 7.

Christmas in July

The Community Market has been operating for several months now at the community hall on Saturdays.

It is somewhat discouraging that we have been unable to generate more interest in this venture by getting in more vendors.

Despite all our efforts advertising in the newspaper, posters, ads and by word-of-mouth, we have not been successful.

It has been mutually decided to cancel the Community Market, and the last one was held on July 9.

Many thanks to all who donated their time and effort in this venture, the organizers, vendors and the volunteers who all participated in this worthy cause to help raise funds for the arena.

Busy workers

Spectra Energy is now working flat out in visible areas.

It looks like they are building a freeway in the fields!

Motel sold

Congratulations to Annette Golder in the successful sale of the Lake Motel.

The community wishes you good luck in your travels.

Under the B

Bingo on Wednesday nights seems to be the place to be.

The progressive jackpot continues to grow and so does the attendance. Good luck to all who come to the community hall for a fun evening.
