The Loon Lake community celebrated its annual fall dance and fire department fundraiser on Aug. 31  at the community hall. The event was attended by approximately 100 community members and guests who enjoyed dancing and visiting.

The highlight of the evening was the draw for our summer long raffle. Sally Watson (TNRD rep) drew the winning ticket and Sid and Cheryl Ward were the grand prize winners of a Princecraft boat, motor and trailer. The winning ticket was sold by Kevin and Linda Lennox. Second prize was a 40” TV won by Ron and Louise Hanson and third prize was a barbecue won by Tom Godmendson.

The event was made possible through the organizing efforts of Ron and Louise Hanson and a number of volunteers who assisted them. A large number of sponsors greatly assisted including: Norah and Lorne Nicholson, BOSA Developments Inc., Dusty Rose Pub, Galaxy Promotions, Rivershore Estate and Golf, Copper Classics, White Moose Resort, Marigold Resort, Evergreen Resort and AnuYou Resort.
