Volunteers always needed

Mountain Spruce Community Centre Society holds AGM

Mountain Spruce Community Centre Society (MSCCS) held its annual general meeting at the park on July 26.

Penny Millway (250-593-4521) remains chair and recording secretary, while Rena Wheatley remains treasurer and corresponding secretary. Directors at large comprise Tony Eades, Roy Tomlinson, Mauno and Sirkka Tuomi and Mary Weight.

MSCCS would also like to thank those residents who support the cause financially, and others who more than do their part. These hard workers include Brent Clifton, Mario Huebel, Joyce McManus, Bill Stanton and Ted Weight.

Elections held

Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’  Association’s (DLRDA) July 29 annual general meeting saw a good turnout of interested and supportive residents.

Directors in mid term comprise Sandy Amy,  Al Martin, Joyce Rowe and Lorna Wiebe. Directors Jane Mahovlich, Marty Mahovlich, Penny Millway and Wolf Zink were re-elected to the board for two years.

Newly elected were Barrie Armitage and Jocelyne Colbert for a two year term, and Kerrie LeGrand for a one-year term.

Volunteers needed

Roe Lake & District Recreation Commission (RLDRC) is the body which manages Interlakes Hall and Grounds and Interlakes Rodeo Grounds on behalf of all the citizens of Interlakes, who own the complexes.

RLDRC is also the “parent” of Interlakes Community Association which runs all the programmes and events that are offered.

RLDRC is in need of a volunteer treasurer. Speaking for RLDRC, Gyl Connaty advises that the work involves about 8 hours per month, and that interested parties or those with questions may contact her at 250-593-4456.


No sooner had open fires been banned when the skies opened to torrents of rain, and the campfire ban was lifted again on July 25. However, note that fireworks and torches are still banned.


Birthday bubbly goes to Alamaz Durand and Terry Allan; and congratulations to Bev & Doug Crawford on their 58th wedding anniversary.
