It’s beginning to look like Christmas

The Village Christmas decorations were hung on Thursday, the hall has been decorated and with only three weeks left until Christmas the community is ready for the holiday parties.

The Village Christmas decorations were hung on Thursday, the hall has been decorated and with only three weeks left until Christmas the community is ready for the holiday parties.

Only a skiff of snow can be seen in the sheltered areas.

The village councilors, staff and committee reps went to Endiang on Friday evening for their Christmas supper.

You can enjoy breakfast with Santa on the morning of Dec. 6 (there is also supposed to be a bake sale table from the school), win a Christmas turkey or ham on the evenings of Dec. 10 and 17 (regular bingo Dec. 3) , listen to the music of the Castor/Alliance community choir as they present their Christmas cantata at 2:30 Dec. 13 -there will be no other service in December- and be part of the Mother Teresa students Christmas concert on the evening of Dec. 15.

Congrats to JD Johnson and the team who placed first in the Oilmen’s spiel in Hanna last weekend.

Len and Kelsey Solick with their business, Solick Seeds, sponsored a farmers information meeting in the hall last week. JD and Sandra Johnson attended a dinner show in Edmonton on Friday, compliments of Pioneer seeds.

Anne Neilson and her floor curling team of Shirley Brodersen, Dora Morasch and Elizabeth Raher have been busy attending the local spiels. They have been to Castor, Botha and Stettler during the last 10 days.

The grades 4,5 and 6, having a blanket drive until Dec. 8, will be sending gently used blankets, toques, mitts and scarfs to the Hope Mission.

Everyone’s busy and we are still short of news. Give us a call and let us know what’s going on. Of course it has to be printable.
