June 25 was canning day at Dog Island Brewing Co. in Slave Lake. Four people were going at it hard in the canning room, preparing flats of a brew called ‘Mahalo Pineapple Pilsener.’
That’s a new thing at Slave Lake’s only craft brewery. Another new thing is a musical concert, happening there on Sunday, Aug. 1. Dave McCann, the Lethbridge-based singer-songwriter is the artist.
One of the two dance studios in Slave Lake managed to hold an unconventional dance recital just 12 hours before the most recent set of COVID-19 restrictions came into place.
In a news release, owner Jennifer Hansen says, “Last season was cut off abruptly, and many dancers were left devastated over their 2020 year left unfinished.”
Out of all the dental teams in Canada nominated for the 2020 Leadership in Practice Award Practice Team award, Slave Lake Dental won.
“Leaders in Practice acknowledges dental care professionals who are passionate about providing optimal patient care and making a difference in the lives of Canadians,” says leadersinpractice.ca.
“When I am at work, I dream about painting,” says Corinna Horsman. “It’s taken over my life. I love it so much.”
Horsman’s most recent project was painting a canvas for each of the 20 residents in Slave Lake long-term care.
On March 23, there was a special ceremony with the residents opening their paintings. They all appeared to like them a lot.
‘Drop us a line!’ says Slave Lake’s Anglers Cup committee – pun certainly intended. The big walleye tournament is going ahead again in 2021, after a year off.
“We just got our license last week,” says chief tournament organizer Tracey Crain. “We’re getting entries in already.”
Despite being ticketed for contravening the Public Health Act, Benita Pedersen is forging ahead with several more ‘anti-COVID’ rallies, including one in Slave Lake on March 4. She’d held one the day before in Whitecourt and was moving on later in the week to Peace River and Fort McMurray.
