The Youth Action Committee hosted Winter Carnival Day on Heritage Day. Public skating started off the morning and the Grads of 2013, manned the booth for lunch of hotdogs.
The entertaining games were Toilet seat Toss, Chicken Bowling , Snakes, various Minute to Win It games and a very competitive nail pounding race. Due to poor road conditions, Blair Bickford's hoses and sleigh didn't arrive; they were sorely missed. The Pink Team took home the trophy this year. This event is always well attended with parents and children competing in fun " !

The Mortlach Museum and Recreation Board held their annual fundraiser last weekend. It began with Bingo, Penny Parade and followed by an auction of various items including fancy decorated cakes and baking.The highest bid on a cake was $250.00; needless to say, it was a very successful evening raising over $6800.00. The quilt raffle was won by Wendy Searle. Thank you to all who donated of their time and money to make this event possible.
Chocolate and Turtles- only in Mortlach!
The 'chocolate fountain' was put on by the Mortlach United Church
and all funds went to saving the turtles. Jim and Jen Tedford adopted the turtle "Beatrice" on a vacation tour, one of the many put on by Nature Seekers of a working holiday.They spent 6 hours a day cleaning up the beaches , helping baby turtles get to the ocean, and tagging the female turtles that were nesting. Very interesting presentation.... and the chocolate fountain was a real hit as well!
