The clubhouse was packed for Green Lake Snowmobile Club Christmas Dinner and Dance on Dec. 14.

Families of all ages enjoyed a wonderful night of singing Christmas songs and dancing to the music of The Classmates until 11 p.m. Santa’s helper Brandon Potter came to deliver presents and candy canes to the children and the potluck feast was absolutely wonderful.

Many donated gifts were raffled off and the winner of the 50/50 draw, Mike Anderson from North Green Lake, who was drawn up in the spirit of Christmas, kindly donated his winnings back to the club to help pay for a much-needed trail groomer.

Many thanks go to Santa’s hard-working helpers Pat Olsoff, Miriam Livingston and Cheryl Groves for putting this great night together and Frank Dixon for the beautiful tree.


New Year’s Eve Dance

The club will be hosting a fun night of dancing with live music by Jack Keough and friends on Dec. 31.

Doors open at 9 p.m. and the party goes on until 1:30 a.m. Snacks will be provided and there is no charge to attend.

Make sure you don’t miss celebrating the last day of 2013 with all your friends and neighbours.

If you can help out, please call Jack at 250-456-7725.
