For one day only fabulous images of life around the lake will be displayed at the Christina Lake Community Hall as a part of the Homecoming celebrations. The exhibit of historical photos, paintings and a display of artwork by children of Christina Lake Elementary School (CLES) has been prepared for this first annual event that was envisioned by Regional Area C Director Grace McGregor. 

The exhibit will be on display all day Saturday, June 19 opening at 10:00  a.m. with an Art Show & Sale, where one might find great Father’s Day gifts and enjoy a pancake breakfast from 9 – 11:00 a.m. hosted by the Christina Lake Chamber of Commerce and the Ladies Auxiliary to the hall.

“Come down and flip through scrapbooks prepared by Terry King and see if you can find a photo of you and your friends at CLES over the years. The kindergarten class has made pictures of their excursion to the local beaver dam. While the grade 2- 4’s have made drawing of their favourite spots around Christina Lake and written about why they love it here so much,” says Leah Carnahan, event organizer.

“Children in grades five and six have been asked to interview a friend or family member who has lived at the lake and these will be posted. You might discover some things about someone you thought you already knew.”

Sue Adrain and Bev Buldoc have collected fabulous images of life around the lake and the people who lived here that will be on display. As well, a slide show of images collected by the Sandners will also be showing throughout the day showing life at the lake in days gone by.

Be sure to catch this show on display for one day only – Saturday, June 19 at the Christina Lake Community Hall!
