Signs of spring have arrived for Lone Butte and area residents

Community news happening around the Horse Lake area

The snow is retreating, the geese are back, and the mud is here. I think we are all ready to see the colour green, so bring it on.

Potluck supper

The Lone Butte Community Association invites everyone to a spring potluck supper at the community hall on April 6.
