This is the last week in which you can buy Christmas Wine Survivor tickets. And, believe me, the tickets are going fast.

Come to the library armed with a bottle of wine and buy a ticket. Then join us for the Elimination Party on Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. It is not necessary to attend the party to win, but you are sure to have a great time. The Friends of the Stettler Library are planning a night of entertainment including belly dancing, Christmas karaoke, wine tasting, refreshments and trivia. it’s going to be so much fun. The lucky person who survives being eliminated wins 30 per cent of the wine collected, with additional wine prizes for the second to sixth runners-up. You will be ready for Christmas, New Year’s and a quiet night at home. Proceeds will be used to enhance the children’s area in the Library. The rules are posted on the Stettler Public Library’s website (spl.prl.ab.ca).
