One of the most beautiful days of the summer yet, Lake Cowichan had two hot dog fund-raisers take place, Saturday, September 3.

At the Country Grocer, the Cowichan Lake Golden Agers Society raised money for trips. The group enjoys taking four to five trips per year, to places like the Singing Lights in Ladysmith at Christmas, Victoria, Salt Spring Island, and other places.

“We’ve had a good crowd come by,” fund-raiser Joyce Hargreaves said, of the day’s crowd.

The society’s next meeting will take place Tuesday, September 13, at 10 a.m. for the executive meeting, and 1:30 p.m. for the general; both at the Lake Cowichan Seniors’ Centre.

Over at the Evergreen Place, the Lions Club and the Evergreen Place held fund-raisers, both hot dog and rummage sales.

The Lions Club plans on reconvening Monday, September 12, after having taken a break for the summer. They meet at the Lions Den at 7 p.m.
