Please pick up!

Have you heard about stools to fuels -- street lamps that run on doggie poo? Unfortunately, we don't have them here! And now that the snow is beginning to melt we're noticing the problem of not picking up after dogs is worse than ever. 

Please prevent this accumulation from ever happening by promptly dealing with dog waste. It's especially important to pick up after your dog near the lake. Your neighbours will also appreciate your efforts on or around their property. Bonus: If you're walking on Lac Le Jeune Road we even have free bags and drop off service.

Winter reading

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District Library System recently donated another box of excellent books, including several for young readers. This is a regular occurrence thanks to Coleen Krawchuck who has been coordinating these contributions to our Little Free Library.

Added bonus: you don't need to climb over a snowbank to get yourself a book. The snow shovel, located behind the library, has been put to good use this winter!

Lac Le Jeune Lodge - circa 1960

Photo courtesy of Kamloops History Community, posted here with permission

Does anyone remember when the Lac Le Jeune lodge looked like this?

This photo from the 1960s was posted to the Kamloops History Community in Facebook. People in that group reminisced about the drive on a long gravel road to come to Lac Le Jeune for all the reasons we still enjoy this area today. Well, except there was downhill skiing back then!

This lodge was torn down and the current lodge built in a different location.

Copied from Kamloops This Week

It is with profound sorrow that the family announces the passing of Brenda Louise Phillips on October 3, 2017 at Marjorie Willoughby Hospice.

Schoening Funeral Service 250-374-1454

A personal note:

I heard about Brenda long before I met her -- great stories about her international adventures and love of animals. Many of us will remember how she gave Phantom, a dog from Turkey, a new lease on life.

One summer during one of Brenda's visits to Lac Le Jeune, a group of us went on a bike ride to Ross Moore Lake. There is one stretch on the final descent toward the lake that is rocky and steep; many riders choose to dismount and walk. Not Brenda. She rode over those rocks like a pro. Later when we stopped for a break she explained that a good dental plan was factored into that decision. :)

We crossed paths a few times over the years -- gathering around her kitchen table with fresh-baked cookies to talk about website design, her parents 50th wedding anniversary party, and just smiling and waving across Lookout Road.

I knew I'd like Brenda before I met her, and now I know I'll miss her. xo
