Watch Lake Green Lake Community Association meeting date corrected

Watch Lake & District Women's Institute held annual general meeting

The next meeting of the Watch Lake Green Lake Community Association (WLGLCA) will be at Watch Lake Community Hall on Jan. 21, and not on Jan. 2 as previously reported.

Social time is at 7 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7:30.

The WLGLCA annual general meeting (AGM) will be held in February, date and time to be announced in a future column.

New members and executive candidates are needed. The treasurer and vice-president will stand for election, but new candidates with fresh ideas are needed for other positions.

W.I. news

The Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute held its AGM and meeting in November at the home of Linda Krupp. Elections were held and all positions were filled.

A Christmas bake sale was held at Cariboo Mall in 100 Mile House and was very successful. The proceeds may be dedicated to the new tables for Watch Lake Community Hall. The W.I. also voted to transfer surplus funds toward the cost of new chairs for the hall.

Future plans are for another sale between Easter and the May long weekend. They welcome anyone who can help with the baking and selling.

The next W.I. meeting is today (Jan. 16) at the community hall at 11 a.m. and guests are always welcome.

The group will hold a thank-you tea at the community hall on Jan. 19 between 2 and 4 p.m. It is hoped this date will allow volunteers, who work during the week and have not been able to attend in the past, to attend.

Fireworks display

There was a large fireworks display on Green Lake New Year’s Eve, but many viewers on the north side could not see very much because a low fog hung over the lake.
