Serving the Community
Over the years, the Lac du Bonnet & District Chamber of Commerce has been involved in numerous projects for the benefit of the Lac du Bonnet area. Here are a small sample of the Chamber's projects.
 
Ice Fishing Derby
Lac du Bonnet’s most popular winter event happens yearly in March and attracts 1100+ young and old fishing enthusiasts. The derby is designed on a hidden time and weight system giving all a equal chance at the $25,000+ in prizes. The 2009 - $10,000 grand prize winner was Cale David of Lac du Bonnet.
 
Incorporated in the Summer of 2009, the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby Inc. is the official organization of the annual event. The Chamber of Commerce supports the derby by advertising the event on this website as a community public service.
 
Experience Lac du Bonnet Sign
The Experience Lac du Bonnet Sign on Highway 59 is a Chamber initiative. It helps direct those travelling on Highway #59 to our four season's Playground.

Lac du Bonnet Area Map
Every Spring the Lac du Bonnet & District Chamber of Commerce produces a full size map of the area. The map will be delivered to residents with The Leader and is also available for pick up at The Leader box on 2nd street that day. Alternatively various businesses, or at the RM or Town offices are locations where you may obtain one. Please support the advertisers listed on the back, without whose contribution this initiative would not be possible. (Click to View)
