Ryder Lake Grape
The More Things Change
Board Member changes and a look at Nov-Dec events
By Peter Hamilton, RLFI
yder Lake Farmers' Institute (RLFI) is starting to deck the halls with seasonal happy happy. Peter Hamilton wanted to share with Voice readers their line-up of November and December happenings.
There's going to be some changes at the Hall this coming year.
After a decade of bringing the Ryder Lake community together as president of the RLFI Hamilton say he's hanging up his hat.
"My thanks to the Directors who retired this year, Heather Werner, Barry Eastman, Melanie Reuter and Petra Wykpis. After ten years on the Board I did not run as President again," said Hamilton. "The renovations to replace the front wall the Hall are complete, the Hall is open again and ready to renew its role as the central meeting place for the Ryder Lake community. I know the residents of Ryder Lake will support the new RLFI Board as they continue the task of making this a great place to live."
The Ryder Lake Farmers' Institute held their Annual General Meeting last night and they now have several new Board of Directors:
Mark your calendars and plan to make these community events part of your family's Fall and Winter celebrations.
Sheltered in the valley bowl, charming homesteads dot the landscape. Each year the close-knit community plays host to city dwellers and country kin alike. Visitors come from close to home, from around the Province, and around the world, to attend the annual Ryder Lake Ramble. During the Ramble weekend, the Ryder Lake Hall is open to the public. The aroma of delicious home country cooking greets visitors as they begin their tour of some of the most beautiful properties in the area. Visitors are treated to a self-guided rambling collection; a sort of “Open House” of local farms, incredible gardens, breathtaking views, and walks in the serene natural environment. The annual Ramble shines a spotlight on this beautiful and unique area, in the hopes that Ryder Lake’s unique character and charm, will be celebrated, and protected, for many future generations to come. Ryder Lake is truly one of the jewels in the crown of the Fraser Valley.
