New Christina Lake website delves deeper

The new website for the community of Christina Lake is up and running.

The new website for the community of Christina Lake is up and running. Christinalake.ca is a one-stop shop for residents and visitors alike covering everything from local history to chamber of commerce information to living in Christina Lake to Christina gateway community development.“Our website needed to be brought up to date and made more interactive,” said Sandy Mark, community coordinator at Christina Lake, about the launch of christinalake.ca. “The new website is a lot more interactive and can also come up on people’s mobile phones. It’s a website that we can get in and change anything ourselves fairly easy which is really helpful.”Mark said they’ve tried to make the website a full community website.“Before it was pretty much a chamber of commerce website, but now it’s a full community website,” she said. “The chamber is included as are all the other part in the community, but now all the community organizations are on there. There are pictures of them and what they do and who to contact and so on.”There is also a section on community economic development and what people in the region are trying to do to bolster the economy in Christina Lake.”The website also has stories about Christina, the lady who the town and lake were named after.“It explains how it came to be and how she was the first woman shopkeeper in B.C. and all that background is on there,” said Mark.Mark said the website is created and maintained by local students through the Christina Gateway community development society.
