Watch Lake/Green Lake news

Correspondent needs news from Watch Lake/North Green Lake groups/residents

As the community correspondent, I try to write about the things that happen in our area, but I can only do that if I am made aware of the activities.

To the members of the clubs, organizations, groups and individuals of my area, please contact me to keep me informed on what is happening in our community.

If you have events, get-well, birthday or anniversary wishes or news that you would like to share, call or e-mail this writer.

Watch Lake Community Hall

If you would like to rent the Watch Lake Community Hall (WLCH) for receptions like weddings or anniversaries, birthday parties, get-togethers, meetings and other activities, please contact Tanya Richards at 250-456-7783.

She will gladly book the dates you require for that special day.

Special wishes
