A Lac Le Jeune Winter Wedding

Claire Lindros and Phil Ryan were married on Sunday Feb 23, 2014 in true winter Lac Le Jeune style.

Gregg Lindros led Claire through the sparkling snow and down the steps to the dock

They said their vows on the frozen lake

 The piper could be heard for miles around

Claire's "cloak" was made from her mom's (Lucy) wedding dress

They left for Cuba in search of warmer temperatures for their honeymoon

Thank You! Red-Winged Blackbird Social

Thank you! To:

The wonderful hosts at Lac Le Jeune Wilderness Resort

The CHEFS! (Wasn't that food amazing?)

The 76 people who purchased dinner tickets

The DJ who kept us entertained

The dancers and game participants who kept us even more entertained!

Everyone who helped to spread the word

Those who travelled from afar and braved the horrible winter highway conditions to attend the supper

The "social" committee for all the planning and preparation

LLJCA Area Reps who sold tickets

The special guests who joined us for the evening

All the generous people who donated gifts for the door and spot prizes 

Clever people who posted excellent ideas on our post-it wall (I'll compile them in a separate post)

Volunteers for the Lake Monitoring Project

The thoughtful residents who gave their tickets away when they realized they could not attend

The recipients of those free tickets who, in exchange, left some hefty tips for the servers

The many creative folks who picked up the crayons and markers to doodle, draw, and play games on tables

The red-winged blackbirds, for returning to Lac Le Jeune right on schedule!

Planned Power Outage

The following is a planned maintenance outage, scheduled by BC Hydro. It includes all of Logan Lake and outlying areas including Lac La Jeune, Meadow Creek Road, Tunkwa Road and Hwy 97C.

March 30, 2014 8:00 - 16:00 

From the BC Hydro website:

How you can prepare for a planned outage?

To prepare for power interruptions, we encourage you to protect your equipment from damage, turn off all lights, electric heaters and major appliances and unplug all electronics. For the first hour after the power comes back on, please only plug in or turn on those electronics and appliances that you really need. This gives the system time to stabilize and prevents it from getting overloaded.

Is this your cat?

UPDATE: This cat's home has been found. It belongs in Lac le Jeune on Ridgemont. Thanks to Tracy, Kecia and Chris for their footwork!

The pictures are a little blurry, but hopefully you can make out if this is your cat or not! S/he's been hanging around the Upton property on Pineridge the last couple of days. Leave a comment below if you know anything about this sweet kitty.
