It’s Bake Sale Time. Don’t forget to come down to the Stettler Mall on Saturday from 10-4 to check out all the goodies the HYC teens and families have make for this fun event. Gift wrapping, a creative cake raffle and little trinkets for under the tree are only a few things you’ll find at the annual sale for charity.

The members from three different clubs will be putting a lot of work into this and hope that the turn out will be as fantastic as last year’s event. If you are interested in donating some baked items, please contact Melissa or Tamona at the youth center (742-5437) for more info.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters in-school-mentoring program has kicked off another busy year at the Stettler and Erskine schools. The program is still looking for more enthusiastic volunteers to join the group and make a difference in the life of a child in the community. Anyone interested in more information is encouraged to contact Leanna at the youth center.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters will also be holding a Christmas get together next Tuesday for matches at the youth center. The bigs, littles, parents and siblings are invited for a relaxing dinner celebration and spend time brainstorming group activity ideas for the new year.

This will be a great opportunity for the matches to meet others in the program, as well as the new BBBS case worker Leanna Moon. Matches and their families are requested to RSVP by Dec. 10 for the event at 742-KIDS(5437).

Torch is still on the hunt for some interested teens 12-14 to join their club, that runs Thursday evenings at the youth center. Currently the club is getting ready to put on the annual Christmas party for the after-school drop-in program, as well as playing a big role with the up coming bake sale. The members are also raising money through sorting bottles, with their partner club Keystone for Oxfam to continue their tradition of sending Christmas gifts to third world countries. If anyone has empty cans or bottles they would like to donate to the effort or would like more information on the program, please contact or stop by the youth center. No donation is too big or too small. Last year, the clubs raised enough to purchase two goats, two donkeys and two chickens through the Oxfam Unwrapped program than not only supplies the gifts but teaches sustainability and community involvement. The members feel that extending their reach across the world during Christmas is a very rewarding event to be a part of.

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. Hamilton Wright Mabie
