The Halloween celebrations at South Green Lake are going according to plan.
Trick or Treat is expected to start around 6 p.m., with children working from Point Road to the end of Green Lake South Road. COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.
When the 13 tricks or treats show up at the doors of residents of South Green Lake, treat givers are asked to wear face masks and gloves when handing out their treats.
Miguel and Krista Vieira are providing the fireworks, thanks to generous donations from residents and local businesses again this year.
Fireworks should light up the sky at 8 p.m.
Members of the South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department will help Miguel set up and light the fireworks as well as clean up after the event.
Funding need for the community hall
The 70 Mile Community Club is hosting fundraisers to kick off Phase 2 of the community hall upgrades.
Phase 2 will complete all interior upgrades including new floors, washrooms and kitchen.
Community club president Ken Huber said they need to find the money for the second phase.
“It was suggested that the community needs to come forward to help because there are no more grants available, and it really needs to happen,” he said.
“We are asking businesses and individuals to donate to the cause. If they would like to donate labor or money, that would be appreciated.
Anyone wishing to make a financial donation can send their donation to 70 Mile Community Club, Box 159, 70 Mile House, BC, V0K 2K0. It must be made out in the name of the 70 Mile Community Club.
Those wishing to donate manpower should contact Huber at 250-456-6050 in the evening to let him know what they want to do.
“The more volunteer work we get, the less money we have to raise.”
The club is hosting a community fundraising event from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on October 30. A pancake and sausage breakfast will be provided by donation, with coffee, tea and hot chocolate also available. All proceeds will go to Phase 2 upgrades.
Huber said the club are also building a kiosk by the back door for barbecues.
He added that they needed electricians, plumbers and painters to paint the vaulted ceilings of the hall and the walls around the stage. Work in the kitchen will involve new countertops and flooring, he noted.
The club is also organizing a craft fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on November 20.
Club treasurer Miriam Livingston said the fair had always been a good event before the COVID-19 pandemic and “I’m sure this one will be great as well.”
Vendors wishing to rent a table for $ 10 are asked to call him at 250-456-7531. Tables are available on a first come, first served basis.
Religious services resume at the community hall. South Cariboo Community Fellowship now holds Winter Sunday services from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Services returned to the Community Hall at the Seventy Mile Access Center (SMAC), and Huber said their return to the community hall was a blessing for the community club.
Horse-drawn carriage riding events on the British Columbia circuit have suffered this year due to COVID-19 and recent wildfires.
COVID-19 safety rules have reduced the number of people who can gather at events – even outdoors – while wildfires have produced a lot of smoke in the province, making it difficult for people to put their horses in competition condition.
Although the Cariboo Country Carriage Club were able to successfully organize a field test drive at Huber Farm at 70 Mile House from September 25-26, an 18 mile hike scheduled for October 17 had to be canceled due to the cold weather. and wind on the scheduled day of the event.
The driving club is now complete for this season, according to club secretary Karyn Greenlees.
