The Blue Lake Museum will have its Pints for Non-Profits event today, Nov. 14 at the Mad River Brewery, 195 Taylor Way, Blue Lake. My apologies in regards to information in my last column. I got the name of the band wrong. The band playing will be Old Dog, and music will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

There will be a bake sale and silent auction with many awesome donations from Pierson’s Building Center, Caravan of Dreams, Arcata Exchange and more! The pints for non-profits is all day, but the main attraction will start at 6 p.m. See you there!

Day Camp for Kids

It’s almost Thanksgiving break time – do you know what your children will be doing while there is no school?

The Blue Lake Parks and Recreation has an amazing kids camp during all school breaks. For Thanksgiving, the camp will be open Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 19 to 21. Children 5-13 can enjoy a variety of games, crafts, and of course skating! Contact Parks and Recreation at (707) 668-5932 for more information.

Public Works awards

On Friday, Nov. 2, the Blue Lake Public Works was presented with three awards from the California Water Environmental Association for their wastewater facilities and project: Collection System of the Year, Small Plant of the year, and Community Engagement and Outreach Project of the Year.

We here in Blue Lake are really lucky to have such a dedicated team of individuals who take care of our public works needs! Thank you to Glenn Bernald, Public Works Superintendent, Hal Burris, Public Works Operator, Jacob Meng and Skyler Coke, both Public Works Facility Maintenance workers.
