Let's Go For a Walk . . .

A "drop-in" walking group has just formed at the lake and everyone's welcome to join us. From Monday through Friday we'll begin the walk at 1:00 p.m. in front of the Lac Le Jeune Lodge. Now that winter weather is on the way, that's usually far enough into the day that the temperature has warmed up a little.  So far the walks have been about an hour in length, taking various routes each time. Friendly dogs who play well with others are also welcome. It's a chance to get some fresh air and exercise AND become better acquainted with your neighbours . . . so think about joining us!

New Dog Trail at Stake Lake

There's a work party at Stake Lake to get the new Dog Trails ready for the ski season. Bring your lunch, gloves, shovels and rakes to remove rocks, fill holes and prepare the surface for the first season of service. Meet at the day lodge at 9:00 am, Sunday Oct 26th.

Heartland Food Coop

Heartland Foods and Farm Tours Cooperative is an organization of local farmers and ranchers who produce a broad range of products. You name it -- eggs, freshly picked fruits and vegetables, grass fed beef, lamb, and bison, chicken, pasta + flours, preserves, cheese, a variety of breads and other goodies. It's nice to have such convenient access to food that hasn't traveled thousands of miles and isn't loaded up with the usual hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, perservatives, and animal by-products.

They offer an email ordering service that I've been using for a few weeks now. Here's how it works:
  1. Send email to heartlandfoods@telus.net to let them know you would like to be included in their weekly mail out.
  2. Each Thursday you will receive a "Fresh List" of items that are available that week.
  3. Respond with your order. They appreciate receiving it before the weekend.
  4. Pick it up at 996 Laval Crescent (High Country Storage) anytime after 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, or on Thursday.
The also have a variety of frozen and non-perishable items in the store that you can pick up any time.

If others are interested in this service we could organize a Lac Le Jeune pick up. Just let me know! Add a comment here or send email to sylvia@webbedfeat.com.
