Watch Lake/Green Lake Gymkhana provided entertainment for the whole family

Community news happening around the Watch Lake and North Green Lake area

The Watch Lake/Green Lake Gymkhana was a great success again on July 13 with great weather.

Many thanks go out to all the volunteers who help out in this event. The gymkhana had many old-time favourites, such as the barrel, stake and keyhole races, as well as the poplar musical tires.

The next Watch Lake/Green Lake Gymkhana is scheduled for Aug. 10.
