Drowning at Albas this summer
We're just back from our annual Mothers day week to the cabin.
We have been making this trip for many years, meeting up with a group of Realtor friends that have
been making the annual Mother's Day trip for over 20 years. They leave their wives at home and rent
a houseboat. They tour 3 to 4 arms of the lake over a 5 day period and stay at least 2 nights at
Seymour Arm. This year they gave up 1 day of their trip to help build our new dock. We often wonder
how they can leave the wives for the past 20 years on Mothers Day. Since they all have been married
to the same ladies for 30 years or more, they must be doing something right. Thanks to Larry, Al,
Brian and Steve
Sonja is working in Denmark and won't be home for Christmas.
Gltedelig jul og Godt Nytar. Alt Gar Godt I Danmark.
Haber alt star vel til hos jer.
Things are going great half way around the world in Denmark. Having a great time with all my Danish friends and new
guy. I'm now in Hanover Germany staying with my family for Christmas. I'm always trying to tell my friends here
what life at the lake is like and they just dont understand.

Seymour Arm Student wins top Canadian Award
Eagle River Secondary School principal Rag Fogarty presented Tamzyn Bradley
of Seymour Arm with the Governor General's Academic Medal. Tamzyn, who took her grade 12 at ERSS,
achieved the highest average upon graduation. The Governor General's Academic Medal was first
awarded in 1873 by the Earl of Dufferin, and has since become one of the most prestigious awards
that a student in a Canadian educational institution may receive. The Governor General of Canada
continues this tradition of encouraging scholarship across the nation and recognizing outstanding
students. Congratulations, Tamzyn and parents, Lorne & Vivian Bradley!

Mud Slide Takes Out Town Water Supply!
On Friday July 9th, at approximately 5:30 am a large mud slide came down Long Ridge above the town's dam site,
breaking the Dam. The slide followed the creek right down to the lake, causing the closure of the road to the south
shore, and shakey hollow (bug house bay) campsite. Ron Krease was busy clearing the mud, huge boulders and trees,
at last count. The town is on limited water, until something can be done with the dam.
