Now here’s something special!  Chuck’s Auto Supply will be holding their 4th Annual Car Show Sunday July 8th, 2018 across the street (Mackenzie Ave. S) from the Stampede Grounds on the same day as the Wildfire Recovery Cruise picnic rendezvous. Chuck’s Auto writes, “This is a great opportunity for the community to get out and have some fun. We will have booths and displays set up from vendors such as Jet Tools and Rancho Suspension. The Williams Lake and District 4-H will have a PETTING ZOO set up, and Van Kam Freightways will be providing a BBQ with proceeds going to the 4-H. We look forward to seeing everybody here.”

Tina writes, “Logan Lake was hit with the loss of tourism (in 2017) but we weren’t evacuated, so we don’t qualify for government help. I hope you are sharing this idea with other clubs. Even if they only stop for gas and meals it’s a big help to the local communities. In past years when the Harley ride comes through, the restaurant they stop at gets a huge boost, which in turn helps the town.”
