During the past year, the Burns Lake Band has been constructing a community Gazebo on the lake front for community members.

The finishing touches are put to a new fire pit and bar-b-cue smoke hood in Burns Lake.

During the past year, the Burns Lake Band has been constructing a community Gazebo on the lake front for community members. The project was initiated by Chief Albert Gerow, Councillor Dan George and Wesley Sam. The Gazebo was designed and built by volunteers Michael Wassegijig and Roger Tibbitts.

The purpose of the Gazebo is to provide the Burns Lake Band Community Members and other members of the Burns Lake Community with a place to enjoy outdoor recreational activities.

The overall goal of the project is to strengthen our community by learning to share our interests through socializing during birthday parties, anniversaries, receptions, yard sales, fund raising, and other events.

This gazebo is unique in many ways. It is designed for public use, it measures twenty four feet across, has a reinforced concrete floor and a fire pit. The fire pit is round, five feet across with a polished granite top, steel octagon smoke hood.
