Revised bookmobile schedule set

Victor Popiel’s regular correspondence for the 70 Mile area

The revised YNRD bookmobile schedule has been set. The next stop in the area will be Jan. 18 and not Jan. 4 as previously published.

It will be at the South Green Lake Fire Hall from 10 to 11 a.m. and at the 70 Mile General Store from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There have been many additions to the new vehicle. Check it out when you can.

VFD news

Residents are reminded that they require house numbers posted in a visible location.

Anyone wanting to donate returnable containers can take them to Gold Trail Recycling and request the funds be turned over to the 70 Mile fire department. Bins are being constructed for placement in 70 Mile and should be in place soon.

Dusty Rose

Angel and Del closed earlier this year so that they could enjoy an extended vacation. They anticipate returning on May 1.
