Recreation commission elects new officers, thanks past president

Community news happening around the Interlakes area of the South Cariboo

Several dozen residents attended Roe Lake & District Recreation Commission’s (RLDRC) annual general meeting, February 5.

The RLDRC manages the Interlakes Hall and Rodeo Grounds on behalf of all Interlakes residents who are its owners.

The new president is Wendy Chase, and she is assisted by co-vice-presidents Lorraine Jerema and Craig Charlton, secretary Pam Canty and treasurer Gyl Connaty who is assisted by newly-elected Cambria Volonte.

Directors Verna Desjardins, AJ Dwyer, Andrea Glatz, Rene Lafavor, Marion Mickelsen, Carney Myers, Joyce Shmyr, Barb Weston and Bill Adams were already in office, and are joined by newly elected directors Chris Lance, Jacquie McKay, Sharon Stewart, Norm Granberg and Vince Zadworny.

Past president Carolyn Charlton has retired, and is appreciated for stepping in at the right time and for all her hard work.

 

Cleanup requested

A Bridge Lake resident asks ice fishers to take their garbage, especially cigarette butts, away with them.

He also advises fishers not to use WD40 on lures, as it pollutes the water.

 

Sad passing

Condolences are extended to the friends of Deka’s Mavis Wiebe who passed away in her late seventies at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, Feb. 2.
