It is feeling a little like spring don’t you think? We sure have been having some nice blue sky, bright sunny days in Lone Butte lately.

 

Dance slated

The details haven’t been hammered out yet, but keep your eyes open for a March dance in Lone Butte.

It’s always a good time, and a much-needed night out after being cooped up all winter.

 

4H meetings

The club is in full swing and their next meeting is at the community hall on March 9 at 1 p.m.

They also will be having a bake sale in front of the 100 Mile House mall liquor store on March 15 if you would like to lend your support.

 

Flea market

There will be a craft sale and flea market on March 29 at the community hall.

If you would like to rent a table, please call Audrey Burnell-Higgs at 250-395-4206 or Pat McKay at 250-395-2114.

 

Community Association meeting

This group of residents will be getting together on March 11 at 7 p.m. to discuss ongoing community projects and events.

Without this dedicated team of volunteers, there likely wouldn’t be any events going on in Lone Butte. Anyone is eligible to join, and a helping hand is always appreciated.

Lone Butte Rocks is fast approaching, and they are already planning and organizing for that growing event. If you would like to be part of the fun, give Heather Nelson a call at 250-395-3588.

 

Spring break

Horse Lake Elementary School students will be on spring break from March 8 to March 24.

I hope everyone will enjoy their break and the weather will co-operate during the time off. I’ll be heading to the balmy Prairies (ha, ha) to visit friends and family. It’s not quite as warm as Mexico or Hawaii, but it will have to do.
