The Bridge Lake Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (PAC), with the help of
Bridge Lake Community School Society, hosted a successful dinner/auction on Dec. 5, with 120 people in attendance.
PAC co-president Denise Waldner said it was a great event.
“The children of Bridge Lake Elementary School wish to thank the auctioneer, all donors, buyers and volunteers, businesses and the local restaurant for making the 25th Anniversary Dinner Auction a huge success. Approximately $12,000 was raised for field trips, educational material and events, sports equipment, and the snack and hot lunch programs.”
This community can always be counted on to step up when asked.
The highly successful ladies fundraiser at Wildmans Family Dining & Lounge on Dec. 12 was attended by 39 ladies and raised $2,892.55 for a commercial fast-freezing freezer at Interlakes Hall.
The freezer is specifically for the frozen dinners volunteers are preparing for the South Cariboo Frozen Meals program. The event was great fun, and gratitude is extended to everyone involved.
Many congratulations go to Lorraine and Charlie Faessler on their 69th wedding anniversary on Dec. 27; and to Joice and Danny Jenewein on their 54th on Dec. 30.
At Christmastime when most people are happy, it’s good to remember words by Ella Wheeler Wilcox: “It’s easy enough to be pleasant when life flows along like a song, but the man worthwhile is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.”
I wish you all a wonderful and safe Christmas, with special blessings for those who have reason to be sad.
