The Bulkley Valley Credit Union in Burns Lake made a large cash donation to the Lakes Outdoor Recreation Society (LORS) to help with this year’s recreation site maintenance budget.

The society works with the province to maintain 30 recreation sites in the Lakes District, as well as two small provincial parks.

The volunteer group is currently looking for more registered members to attend the upcoming annual general meeting to make future plans. The larger a member base LORS has, the more funding opportunities it can take advantage of.

As reported recently in Lakes District News, LORS was facing a large funding shortfall for the 2013 summer season. Although the province would have stepped in to make sure that funds were available for LORS to do its work, the society is working towards a self-sustaining model of recreation site maintenance so that future seasons are assured whatever future provincial budgets might bring.
