Local businesses spring into action in the 70 Mile House, Green Lake areas

Crafts, treasures, golf, garage sales, correspondent retires

The 70 Mile House Craft Shop has opened for the May long weekend and will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on every weekend for May and June.

Then they will be open every day for July and August then back to weekends only from September on.

Check out the new versions of favourites made by old and new local crafters and artisans.

Used treasures

While you are in the area, pop over to the Seventy Mile Access Centre, which is in the former 70 Mile Elementary School, and discover all the treasures.

They offer just about everything you may be looking for and deals you cannot refuse.

Golf anyone

The local Tin Cup Greens is open now. They have been very busy raking and fertilizing the greens, so it should be a great local place to go with your family and friends. For more information, call Ray and Seija Paulokangas at 250-456-7577.

Garage sale

The South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department is hosting its annual Garage/Bake Sale, 546 Green Lake South Rd., on May 17 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The sale, which is the department’s main fundraiser, includes garage sale items, used books, a large variety of baking, gift basket raffles and hotdog sales.

Retirement

It is my deepest regret to announce I will not be the South Green correspondent after this month.

Our B&B has become very busy along with music and many other things.

If you would like to take over this job, please contact Free Press editor Ken Alexander at 250-395-2219, and he will be glad to talk to you.

I thank all my readers for their loyalty and comments throughout these past years. Best wishes to everyone and happy gardening.
