The snow sure came on suddenly in our area and I hope you were ready.

We’ve been spoiled with such a mild fall, that shockwaves were felt across the Cariboo when that storm hit us.

We all know it was inevitable, so we might as well go with it. The white stuff is going to stay for a while whether we like it or not.


Halloween winners

Horse Lake Elementary School students had a lot of fun dressing up and shaking a leg at their lunchtime Halloween dance last week.

Prizes were given out to some of the more inventive costumes. Chloe Shewchuk from the Grade 1 class took home a prize for her horse rider costume, as did Grade 4 Lego man Brayden Boyce. Grade 7 student Elton Klassen with his great homemade train costume and Grade 4 hobo Owen West also took home prizes.


O.U.T. happenings

The next get-together for the women of the Other Unusual Talents Group is on Nov. 19 at the community hall.

Scrape your windshields and come on out.


Craft sale

The Christmas Craft Fair is coming up at the Lone Butte Community Hall on Dec. 7.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m., and early birds are welcome. Vendors pack up at 2 p.m., so come early for best selection.

It will soon be Christmas, so come out and see what treasures are to be had. Maybe you can cross a few things off of your shopping list.
