May 17, was the day to find all the treasures you wanted along the South Green Lake Road.

There were two residents, Jennifer Gehl and Joyce Dyck, having their own garage sales, as well as the South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (SGLVFD) welcoming more than 200 people who were having fun shopping for deals throughout the day.

The SGLVFD sold more than 300 pies and it turned out to be a very successful fundraiser. The community contributed great items for sale and many thanks go out to those generous neighbours. Organizers are hoping people will start saving those treasures again and donate the same next year for another great turnout.

Snowmobile club open house

Plans are in the works for the Green Lake Snowmobile Club to host an exciting open house on Aug. 24, starting at 2 p.m., with entertainment, games and a concession.

Carriage driving

Exciting field trials were held at the Huber Farm Equestrian Centre in 70 Mile House, behind the 70 Mile Motel, May 17-20.

Six carriages from Green Lake and as far as Slocan, Nelson and Vanderhoof showed up for field trial courses and dressage classes.

The results for Level 1 were: first, Barb Lindsay; second, Betsy Naismith; third, Jenine Payne; and fourth, Terry Worsfold.

Level 2 was won by Marion Roman.

The trials consisted of all sizes of carriages manoeuvring around trees, cones, gates and various other obstacle courses in a specified time.

On June 8-9, the Roadhouse Open Horse Show will be held at the equestrian centre. Saturday will have the driving and halter classes and Sunday will feature the saddle performance classes.

The next field trials at the Huber Farm Equestrian Centre will be on July 20-21 and also on Sept. 28 -29. These will be on a grander scale with a marathon on the second day involving up to 40 carriages competing from dozens of miniature Welsh ponies to full-sized horses.

Make sure your family comes out to see these spectacular events. There is also a concession available.
