Regular jam sessions to be held in Interlakes

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Interlakes area

The inaugural jam session at Mountain Spruce Community Events Centre on Feb. 9 was a huge success with some 20 musicians.

Participants decided to hold one on the second Saturday of every month at 7 p.m., i.e., March 10.

Bring your own beverage and snack, and instrument.

If you don’t have an instrument, you are more than welcome to just come and sing along.


A reminder that Deka Ladies Auxiliary’s Family Bingo at Deka Firehall runs on March 21 and 28, the latter will be an Easter game with special door and good neighbour prizes, in addition to the bake-table raffle.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and play starts at 7.


Birthday bubbly goes to Joanne Levick, and Emma West turns Sweet Sixteen on March 16.
