Community turns out for fun and games at Beaver Lake Sports and Cultural Club

The Beaver Lake Sports and Cultural Club was the place to be this weekend for the return of the Beaver Lake Winter Carnival.
With COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in the rearview mirror, dozens of people turned out for a full weekend of events at the club. The carnival ran from Feb. 17-19.

The carnival featured an impressive variety of events and activities for people to enjoy.

There was a spaghetti supper and euchre party on Friday. Saturday began with a Finnish pancake breakfast and continued with activities all day.

Saturday featured a bake sale, jug curling, a vintage snowmobile display, face-painting and kids games, family skating and cross-country skiing. There was also a boot toss and a rolling pin toss, as well as a photo contest.

Inside the clubhouse, there was music all day provided by the Local Yokels as well as the men’s drum group from Sagamok Anishnawbek. A silent auction and penny sale, as well as food and drinks, had dozens of people hanging out in the clubhouse between activities.

There was a paint social event on Saturday night, as well, with a snowmobile poker run on Sunday morning.
