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 on May 19, 2011 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)
