Trout Lake is privileged to have top notch Fire Fighters who work hard to keep up-to-date with the latest training, equipment and information; we cannot thank them enough.

A huge vote of thanks to Deb Faast for the positively fantastic murals that she has painted and installed in the Grange. Both the women's and the men's bathrooms are now beautifully decorated. Wow, what a job. Thank you, Deb!
