New exhibit at community showcase

Community news happening around Bridge Lake and the Interlakes area

Looking rather chilly

Bridge Lake’s Celeste Faessler is the guest artist in Bridge Lake Library’s Community Showcase for March.

Celeste is well-known for her many artistic talents but informs me that she will be displaying examples of “recycle-upcycle.” Her imagination always runs wild to produce amazing creations from “used” materials. Be sure to drop in and see what you can do with an old sweater or toilet rolls.

Directors set

After their annual general meeting, Feb. 7, most of Roe Lake & District Recreation Commission and Interlakes Community Centre Society (ICC) directors remain in office, including: president Lorraine Jerema; vice-president Craig Charlton; treasurer Gyl Connaty; and directors Pam Canty, Carolyn Charlton, Jil Freeman, Rene LaFavor, Carney Myers, Brenda Norfolk, Joyce Shmyr, Barb Weston and Ken Weedick.

The newly-elected secretary is Vanessa Ooms, and Kate Warnock was also welcomed to the board.

Massage on offer

ICC is offering a relaxing foot reflexology massage by Piri de Vries on Monday, March 20. Call 250-593-4869 by March 17 to book a 30-minute massage between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The cost is $35.
