Winter starting to test endurance of South Green Lake and area residents

Community news happening around the South Green Lake area

Winter is starting to knock on our doors as the shallows on the west end of Green Lake are starting to form a thin layer of ice and we had our first snowfall on the lake.

Hazardous road conditions on Nov. 2 contributed to about a four-hour power outage along the South Green Lake Road and tested our driving ability on very slippery pavement. By 4 p.m., they still had not been plowed.

Remember to leave earlier, take your time and slow down when conditions are not safe.

Also, don’t forget to feed the birds now and keep your animals away from that thin ice.


Card night

A dozen people showed up for the first crib/card night at the Green Lake Snowmobile club clubhouse on Nov. 1.

Everyone had a lot of fun and even beginners remarked about how they would like to see more of these nights. Bring your friends and neighbours and stay tuned for upcoming dates.

Please call Diane Sullivan at 250-706-8562 if you are interested in coming to another card night.


Snowflake Dance

Polish up those dancing shoes because the floor is going to be bouncing once more with the first dance of the year on Nov. 23, featuring the Class Mates, Gail and Brad Potter.

It’s going to be a beef dip sandwich dinner at 7 p.m. with Caesar salad and dessert. Doors open at 6 p.m. for those early birds. Tickets are $10 for adults and children 12 years and under are $5.

It will be held at the Clubhouse on 176 South Green Lake Rd. There is also going to be a 50/50 draw.

Make sure you RSVP to Rita Dixon at 250-456-7529 by Nov. 16. We have had to limit the seating, as last year we had people pouring out the doors. Bring your friends and neighbours and don’t miss this great night of fun.


Christmas dinner/dance

The next great night of fun for the entire family will be on Dec. 14 at the Clubhouse and this will be a night of Christmas merriment for everyone.


Membership renewal

It’s time to renew your Green Lake Snowmobile Club membership and join in all the winter activities in store for this winter.

There will be lots of dinner/dances, pig roasts, guided fun rides to all parts of the Cariboo and more. If you haven’t signed up yet, call Rita at 250-456-7529 and she will be glad to welcome you and all your friends.

The club needs volunteers to come out and help clean and groom the trails, too. Please call Art Groves at 250-456-2112. Remember, being a club member lowers your insurance for your machines.
