Willament also says the community made a determined effort to meet the criteria required by the association to win the award.


The award will be presented at a ceremony in Reno, Nevada on May 2nd.


Meanwhile, La Loche will be officially recognized for being the “Readingest Community in Northern Saskatchewan” at a ceremony tomorrow at the local elementary school.
