Mock CBC was at the Christmas concert

Merry Christmas to all and please, please drive safe and find a designated driver through the festivities.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — Merry Christmas to all and please, please drive safe, find a designated driver through the festivities and remember all those other vehicles on the road have families, too.

The Christmas spirit was alive with songs and stories at the Botha community hall on Wednesday night. The hall was filled with standing room only and even that filled up when Gadsby and Botha families watched the students as they hosted the annual Christmas concert. We even had a mock team from CBC anchoring the event with questions about what Christmas means to others. The finale included all the students from kindergarten to Grade 6 with a beautiful rendition of the Huron Carol. Costumes were great. A bake sale followed. Food bank donations were taken and tickets sold. Great job to the teachers and students.

Get well wishes to Vic Carey who had an early Christmas present with a new knee. The surgery took place in Medicine Hat on Wednesday. Barb and Vic returned home on the weekend.

Velvet Nickerson enjoyed a few days visit from her niece Veronica from Stoney Plain. They shopped, baked, decorated and visited. Great catch up for Velvet after her stay in hospital.

Helen Heier has already enjoyed al family members and anticipating visits throughout the Christmas holiday.
