Fireworks display a bright light for South Green Lake community

Ken Alexander’s column to Free Press

About 100 South Green Lake community members showed up on New Year’s Eve to watch a great fireworks display in the Snowmobile Clubhouse meadow.

Rita Dixon, who spent a lot of time collecting donations to make the event a reality, thanked everyone for their support, including community members who donated funds toward the cost of the fireworks, especially GLARA, the Fire Department Auxiliary, the Snowmobile Club and Will Unrah.

“The perfect weather saw little ones building snow ‘things’ and some people staying warm by the fire while other folks visited with friends and neighbours.”

Dixon also thanked South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Roger Graham and the volunteer firefighters for attending the event in case there were any emergencies, as well as Assistant Fire Chief Bob Bell for plowing the parking lot.

“This event would not be so successful without these volunteers and the community for showing your support with your donations and your attendance,” she said. “I wish you a very sincere thank you for making our community what it is!”
