Boaters race to save Happy Hour Pavilion

Summer storms and high water levels this year have left the Happy Hour Pavilion on the Pine River hanging on for dear life.

The club will meet Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. to finalize the plan. Volunteers available to help with the rescue and salvage are encouraged to attend, and to bring their own chair.

The meeting will be held at the Alpha Controls shop at 7819 93 Street in Fort St. John.
