In 2014, the 108 Lions applied for a Bingo gaming licence that would provide additional support to the 108 Mile Ranch community.
One of the specific objectives was to build a relationship with the Mile 108 Elementary School. In the past few months, the Lions have had six bingo events at the 108 Community Hall.
Recently, the Lions contacted Mile 108 Elementary School principal Kevin McLennan who presented some ideas on what would be beneficial to the students. On April 24, the 108 Lions presented a $1,500 cheque to the school.
On April 13-14, the Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship (CCLF) hosted the course, Back Bone Parenting.
The presenter was longtime family counsellor Bob Trainor who founded Vistapoint Coaching in Burnaby. Bob was also the former Chaplain for the BC Lions football team.
There were 30 people in attendance and the general consensus was the course was great.
Remember the fishing retreat is on June 12-14 at Ruth Lake. Contact Marie at 250-791-5532 for more information.
The community horse pastures in the 108 Mile Ranch Greenbelt will open May 30.
Registration forms are available at the 108 Esso Station. Horse owners do not have to be residents of the 108.

Most of the birds around the 108 are in full nesting season.
Please be mindful when walking your dogs and keep them on a leash. Nesting season is usually over by July 15.
