The Lake Days 2012 Society met last Monday, to continue planning this year’s Lake Days celebration.

All the committee heads were present and gave their reports. As mentioned before, the same events will be returning this year for everyone to enjoy during the Lake Days celebration week.

Lake Days raffle tickets will be available for sale most Saturdays in front of Country Grocer. First prize this year will be an Apple iPad 2. Second prize will be a bench and arbor set donated by Mountain Man Services and third prize will be a giant gift basket.

The live stage entertainment has started to be booked for this year and the West Coast Lumberjacks show will be back. We are looking for local vendors who wish to be part of Lake Days this year as well as community groups wishing to set up information booths on the grounds during the big weekend. Soap box derby kits are available for purchase  by calling 250-709-4718.

You can find more information at
