Boating incident

​Residents and landowners of the Green Lake Watch Lake Area​

There was an incident on the east end of Green Lake during the Jim Lake fire that authorities have contacted me about and they are requesting information.
Specifically, when the water bombers were landing on the lake, there was a pleasure craft seen boating around the landing area of the bombers and basically interfering with the fire fighting efforts. The authorities are looking for any photographs or videos that you may have that show that the boat and planes. They want to determine how close he was to the landing area.

Please contact me or email me any photos or videos you may have. Your help is appreciated.

Just for your information, it is the law to remove yourself from the area immediately if aircraft are using a lake for fire fighting efforts. It is a criminal offence to interfere with approaching and departing water bombers.

Age Friendly Society AGM

The VERY FIRST AGM (annual general meeting) of the Age Friendly Society of the South Cariboo will be held on WEDNESDAY JUNE 21ST, 2017 in the VALLEY ROOM (behind the 100 Mile Lodge) from 1 to 3 PM.

EVERYONE is welcome to attend! There will be entertainment from 12:45 to 1:30 by the Front Porch Band, a local favourite. Celebrate the accomplishments of “age friendly” over the past year and enjoy our traditional “light refreshments” with neighbours, friends and new acquaintances.

The event includes a “business” meeting where we share financials, report on progress and perform the election of the board directors. The purpose of the AGM activities is to maintain accountability to the members (that’s you!) and to the Society’s rules. Attendance at AGM’s indicates support for the work that we do. Although it may be much more fun to watch a gardening presentation or learn about local resources, it is important to show potential funders that what we do is supported by and engaged with our community. It is also a chance to get to know the steering committee members who keep the momentum and community connections strong.

Invasive Species BC – Strategy Survey

ISC

The Invasive Species Strategy for British Columbia (the ‘Strategy’) completed in May 2012, is a strategic framework for improved invasive species management in British Columbia. It offers a foundation for invasive species work across BC and is the basis for our programs and efforts. As the 5-year implementation period drew to a close at the end of 2016, there is a need to both measure the success of the last five-year period and seek input from stakeholders across the province for revising the Strategy for 2018-2022. To do so we need your input. If you have been involved in invasive species management during 2012-2016 please fill out our survey to measure the success of the Strategy. link here —> Survey

Winter Hazard Warning

On January 1st a notice to the Community page on Facebook warned that there was a 150′-200′ dock extending into the lake.

This dock is fully covered with snow and is a serious hazard that will cause serious injury.

A Snowmobiler hit it on New Years day and went to the hospital this morning as the pain and ability not to walk was very overwhelming .

This individual’s snowmobiling season is done for the year due to this injury.

Luckily the person was traveling at a safe speed. If the snowmobiler wasn’t, it would of been a significantly more serious situation.

The dock is located between the Snowmobile Club area and Boulder Road on South Green Lake. Please be aware of hidden dangers when out snowmobiling.
