McLeese Lake hosts winter fun day

Mother Nature co-operated with some fine weather as McLeese Lake and area residents celebrated a Winter Fun Day in McLeese Lake on Feb. 2.

As McLeese Lake and area residents celebrated a Winter Fun Day in McLeese Lake on Feb. 2, they are were grateful that Mother Nature co-operated by supplying the best possible weather for the event.

It was definitely a great time with many activities for the more than  100 people who attended this fun-filled day.

There was ice fishing, snowmobile runs, hay eRides, socializing aroundrthe campfires and enjoying a very tasty lunch. The lunch included delicious chilli made by Jackie King, roast beef and beef dip made by Greg Foster, cook your own hot dogs and marshmallows over the camp fire, brownies supplied by yours truly, coffee and hot chocolate.

This occasion was sponsored by the McLeese Lake Recreation Society and they were grateful that several people worked hard to make the day the huge success it was.

Thank you very much to the cooks and to Maj Sutherland and Jackie King for serving the guests all day, to Howie Chamberlin, Daniel Jalbert, Greg Foster and Mark Ralph for their help with the ice rink.

This event would not have been possible without the generosity of Rob and Jim Swaan for the use of their property and tent. Rob Chamberlin and Gail Parish did an awesome job running the snow machine runs all day as well. Finally a huge thank you goes out to Jeremy Kishkan for bringing his sleigh and horses for the hay ride. This was one of the biggest hits of the day.

The local community was so supportive, first of all by attending and participating in all the events and secondly by donating $150 and more than 300 pounds of food to the Williams Lake Foodbank.

The society needs your support too. Please come out to the annual general meeting being held at the McLeese Lake Hall on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7 p.m.

In order for the committee to be able to continue sponsoring events such as the winter fun days and the annual Christmas supper and auction, they need your help.

It only takes very few hours of your time each month to help with organizing.

Please come out to the annual meeting. If you have any questions, please contact Howie Chamberlin at 250-297-6429 and he will gladly answer your questions.
