What's going on here? What do you think, Lac La Biche?

Come in, we're open... very open.

What's your caption for this image of the office "leftovers" following the removal of the Pow Wow Hut from the Lac La Biche Recreation Grounds?

We like - "Open office concept" or "I think I'll work outside today."

Our newsroom spotted the unusual sight on Friday afternoon after the private owners of the former Pow Wow Days headquarters had spent the week dismantling the wooden building that once served as the administration office for the annual Lac La Biche summer celebration. 

It is not known if the removal of the building included the removal of the contents, or if current members of the Lac La Biche Pow Wow Days and Fish Derby Association still has a bit of office work to do.

The Pow Wow Hut — which has been part of the Lac La Biche Regional Recreation Grounds for more than 50 years — had to be removed to make way for new design features in the part that are part of a $7.3 million overhaul. Last year the last of three baseball diamonds were removed from the park area, followed by the demolition of a concession stand, meeting room and group-use pavilion. Work on the new McArthur Park upgrades will include walking trails, green space, a skate park, bike track, parking and a town-square area. The plan also includes several upgrades to the Lac La Biche lakeshore area near the McArthur Place municipal building.

Construction on the park upgrades is expected to be completed by this September.

If you'd like to add your caption, put it in the story comments.
