Bee and Toni Hooker along with the Big Lake Community Association hosted a barbecue fundraiser recently at the old Big Lake Elementary School.
There was an overwhelming turnout and a great time was had with friends, neighbours and former students who attended the old Big Lake Elementary School in the 1940s and 50s.
It was an afternoon of stories and shared memories. Some former students had not seen their classmates since the school days and rekindled old friendships.
It was wonderful to hear all the old stories they had to tell.
The Big Lake Symphony Orchestra kept the audience captivated with their talented musicians and singers.
It added a real liveliness to the afternoon.
A huge thanks to all those who came out and a special thanks to Bee and Toni Hooker for coming up with the idea of inviting the community and former students to their beautiful piece of paradise to help raise funds toward a new caretaker’s residence.
Marianne Woods is vice-president of the Big Lake Community Association.
