To the residents in our community, please mark this special date on your calendar.

The Watch Lake/Green Lake Community Association (WLGLCA) will be having a Christmas party on Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Watch Lake Community Hall (WLCH). Doors will open at 5 p.m. with the potluck dinner at 6 p.m.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting us after dinner. There will be gifts for registered children. Please contact Gisele Poliseno at 250-395-9082 or Roze Sander at 250-456-6091 to register your children’s name, age and sex of the child, as well as, how many adults will be attending and what food item you will be bringing for the potluck dinner.

The association will supply the ham and turkey for this event. The cut-off for the children’s registration will be Saturday, Dec. 2 with no exceptions. A non-perishable food item donation to the food bank would be greatly appreciated.

Hall Decorating

The WLGLCA will be decorating the community hall for the Christmas party on Friday, Dec. 8 at 1:00 p.m. If you have some time, please come and join the fun. For more information, contact Gisele Poliseno at 250-395-9082.

Fire Department

It is the time of year that the Watch Lake North Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (WLNGLVFD) would like to remind everyone who uses a fireplace and/or wood stove for heating, to have his or her chimney cleaned before the cold season approaches. This will eliminate the build-up of creosote in the lining of your chimney and reduce the risk of chimney fires.
