It's hard to believe the Christmas season is heading our way again rather quickly.

It’s hard to believe the Christmas season is heading our way again rather quickly. On Sunday, join the Old-Thyme Dance Club for their Christmas Dance starting at 1:30 p.m. If you would like dress in something red and green for this occasion. The crowd that afternoon and all these dances are open to everyone regardless of age. The committee would like everyone to bring with you either buns/sandwiches, salads or desserts to share with everyone at their pooled luncheon.

Then in December, there will not be the last Sunday of the month dance, instead it will be held on New Year’s Eve. So purchase your tickets now by phoning 403-741-9861, before they are sold out. The “Country Gems Band” will be entertaining everyone that evening and joining with you to see the old year out and the new year in, so phone for your tickets now, as it sounds like one great time.

Tomorrow, Nov. 26, make sure you plan to attend the very important monthly meeting at the village office at 7 p.m.

Then on Monday, Nov. 30, make sure to come to the seniors’ centre at 9:30 a.m. to start finishing up your special item for that special person on Christmas morning.This group will be closing down shortly for their Christmas activities, as life gets really busy soon for the festive season.So please plan to join the ladies this coming Monday and the second Monday of December to finish off that one special item you are making.

Dec. 1 is the monthly seniors’ meeting starting at 12 noon, and they are hoping all seniors can attend.These meetings start out with a potluck luncheon so please bring one of your favorite dishes with you to share with everyone. Meeting follows right after the luncheon.

December brings to the school Christmas Concert they will be performing in, so there is lots of practice getting ready for this event, and trying to get all the work done they have to do before their Christmas break.

There is some new work that has beeen happening at the arena, including a new confectionery, so when it opens come on out and see how the arena looks now.With a lot of hard work from Shaun and several volunteers that helped out, this arena really looks great, so thank you to everyone who has helped out on this project.
