VIEW FROM THE PORCH: Paddle and potluck in Round Lake

You’re invited to the Round Lake Community Hall Saturday, June 23 to celebrate longer days with a potluck and a paddle on Round Lake.

The Art Gallery has an urgent need for volunteers, exciting, creative positions: Exhibition Coordinator, a fundraising event committee member, a sitter (opening the gallery to the public), a member of the Board of Directors. Contact Caroline Bastable for more information, 847- 3898.

Energy drinks are usually full of extra unnecessary things. Here is a recipe to make your own: Homemade Vitamin Water: 10 cups water, 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced, 1 lemon, thinly sliced, 1/4 cup basil leaves, shredded, 1/3 cup mint leaves, shredded. Stir all ingredients in a pitcher.

Place in fridge overnight, serve.

Recipe by Mary Roslyn Jolley, www.mygreendiet.com.

With this recipe you know exactly what you’re drinking.

I now attend Council meetings, educational, sometimes long.

The radio station I volunteer at, CICK 93.9FM, records entire meetings.

Later some of the more interesting bits are pulled out and saved to be replayed on the Friday following council meetings, noon on Council Briefs.

One of the councillors attends to explain how decisions are reached or to comment on what was brought forward to Council.

It can be informative, letting you know what’s happening in our community.

I thought my little walking buddy slept a lot, a dog’s life: comfy bed, good food, someone to take you for a walk.

Now I know, under controlled laboratory conditions dogs sleep about 13 hours but wake up more frequently than people.

I know that as she walks on me during the night when she is on guard dog duty, which she takes seriously.

You’re invited to the Round Lake Community Hall Saturday, June 23 to celebrate longer days with a potluck and a paddle on Round Lake.

Paddle in the afternoon.

Take a break for a potluck, 6pm with a campfire, singsong planned for the evening.

Details  at www.roundlakebc.com.

Attended the Spring Recital for flutes and piano.

Wonderful to see the children growing, taking on challenging pieces of music.

The favourite, I think, was the Bottle Band where the performers blew into bottles and produced music.

You really need to go to lionheartproject.com!

I am a fan of crochet and this is something you must see.

Lions have been crocheted larger than life for a special project.

I wouldn’t have the patience for something this size but it’s amazing.

Check out the Smithers Library website for an online survey.

The library wants/needs input from the community.

It is so important to keep our library on the cutting edge of technology, information, activities.

It’s the community’s needs that guide the library in the direction it takes.

A hard copy of the survey is available at the library as well as online.

We will also be bringing the survey direct to you, watch for us at the Safeway and at the Extra Foods Mall in July.

Closing with: Vitality shows not only in the ability to persist, but in the ability to start over.
