Heritage Society celebrates getting back to normal

The Lac La Biche Heritage Society hosted a well-attended event on Monday.

LAC LA BICHE - A 'Get Back to Normal Party' and membership drive brought seniors and community members together on Aug. 9.

The Lac La Biche Heritage Society and County FCSS held a free barbecue last Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The County supported the event with a grant to help purchase food and musical entertainment.

Anyone above the age of 50 was allowed to participate, and potentially apply to become a member of the Heritage Society. A draw for a gift and fruit basket was held for anyone who was interested in becoming a member, as well as being open to all current members.

The Lac La Biche Heritage Society is a non-profit community organization that promotes healthy, active living for seniors in Lac La Biche County. Membership is available for 50+ at a fee of $10 per year. 

Members of Lac La Biche County council were invited to the party and showed up to enjoy the day with entertainment from Ben Desjarlais and Walter Fred.

“We’re so happy with the turnout,” said Mona Frederick, the Executive Director of the Lac La Biche Heritage Society.

Les Diachinsky, President of the Heritage Society, gave a heartfelt speech thanking everyone for coming.

“Let’s take a moment to remember our brothers and sisters who are no longer with us or those who can’t get out,” said Diachinsky.

Those who attended were dancing, laughing and smiling until the event ended.
