Have you heard about the Christmas Wine Survivor Fundraiser being put on by the Stettler Friends of the Library? Well let me tell you about it. Come to the library armed with a bottle of wine (minimum wine value $15). Then join us for the Elimination Party on Dec. 8 at 7:30 pm (it is not necessary to attend the party to win but really who doesn’t want to party). The last person standing wins 30 per cent of the wine collected. You will be ready for Christmas, New Year’s and a quiet night at home. Proceeds will purchase children’s play equipment at the library. Tickets are on sale now and rules are posted on the Stettler Public Library’s website (spl.prl.ab.ca).
