The Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club is planning two work bee weekends this September at the Queest and Blue Lake cabins.

They need volunteers to cut and stack firewood, clean up inside and outside of the cabins and to do some minor repairs to the cabins.

Queest work bee day is scheduled for Sept.15. They will meet at the staging area at TFL 1800 forestry road at 8 a.m.

Blue Lake work bee day is scheduled for Sept. 29. We will meet at the Yard Creek staging area at 8 a.m.

Participants will need some form of transportation, like a quad, to get up the mountain. If volunteers  have no transportation and the club will see if some of the members have extra seats on their quads.

The club will be supplying lunch and non-alcoholic beverage so the club needs to know the number of people that are coming.
