We have been getting little hints that winter will soon be upon us as we wake up to those crispy, white mornings.

Time to clean those chimneys, get the winter tires on and pull out those warm woolies. The countdown is on.

Pot luck supper

Everyone is invited to come out on Nov. 20 for a community pot luck supper at the Lone Butte hall.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and we’ll hopefully be eating by 5.

Bring a meal to share and some goodies for dessert if you like.

Draw results

Congratulations to 100 Mile House resident, Wayne Parks who was the recent winner of a 338 Browning Stainless Stalker and Ken Fern of 70 Mile who took home an Model 870 Remington shotgun in the Lone Butte Fish and Wildlife raffle.

Moose hunting

There is some important information for local moose hunters posted on the LBFW web site regarding possible changes to the hunting regulations. Hunters will want to monitor this information closely to have a successful hunt this season.

The LBFW is also gearing up for their upcoming banquet in February. Please check the website for more info.

Trap shoot

The new trap machine is also up and running so members can now shoot doubles, which apparently can be very challenging.

Anyone interested should come out and “give it a shot.” The shoots are the second and last Sunday of each month at 12 noon.

For more information, please contact George Ostoforoff at 250-395-4027.

Keeping busy

Our local volunteer fire department has been kept busy with numerous first responder calls in recent weeks as well as one motor vehicle accident and an unsupervised brush fire.

They also took part in fire prevention week, doing a fire drill at Horse Lake Elementary and giving information to the students on fire prevention.
