What to expect over the next couple of weeks in Burns Lake

Burns Lake Rotary Club annual radio auction

The Annual Rotary radio auction takes place from 7 p.m. to midnight both evenings, Nov. 16 and 17, at The Heritage Room across from CNC in Burns Lake.

The auction is the Burns Lake Rotary Club’s major fundraiser of the year, and supports a wide range of Rotary projects in the Lakes District.

Catch all the action on The Moose AM 760 in Burns Lake, or 106.5 FM in Houston. To check out the auction items, watch for the auction insert coming in the Lakes District News, or visit

The Wardens perform at the LDSS MPR

The third performance in the Arts Council’s eleventh season takes place on Friday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lakes District Secondary School’s multipurpose room.

The Alberta-based trio The Wardens will sing and play – and present a slide show of their photographs of the Canadian Rockies.

The Wardens are Scott Ward, Bradley Bischoff and Ray Schmidt, a Banff National Park-based trio whose stories rise from the land they’ve protected for the past thirty years. Their music connects with anyone who has a love of landscape and the outdoors.

The Wardens perform mountain music: the superb musicianship of lead guitar, rhythm guitar and bass, and haunting three-part vocal harmonies.

Rich on-screen images add to their spine-tingling delivery. They blend folk, roots and western styles: a piece of Canadiana reflecting the pristine wilderness of the Rockies. We welcome you to sit back and enjoy the music – and stunning photographic images of Canada’s Rocky Mountain national parks.

Look for LDAC’s ads in the Lakes District News, and posters around town. Tickets are now at sale at Process 4 circle arts Gallery, Lakes District Printing and Stationery and the Lakes Artisan Centre. Tickets will also be available at the door – but if you are thinking about attending this show, don’t delay. We expect this one to be a Hot Ticket!
