Hampers bring a little light

Have you chosen an angel tree bookmark from a tree at The Source, Overwaitea or the Credit Union yet?

Pictured above are some of the many community volunteers with the Community Christmas Hamper Truck collecting hats mitts and toys at last week's Black Friday event.

The Community Christmas Hamper Program is still raising funds to purchase food for 300 hampers from local stores costing approximately $50 a hamper.

Have you chosen an angel tree bookmark from a tree at The Source, Overwaitea or the Credit Union yet?

Look for The Community Christmas Hamper Truck at The Parade Dec. 5 where you get another opportunity to drop off your angel tree purchases before we start assembling hampers.

That’s not all, the silent auction will be closed at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 29 at the annual borscht supper which is served this year by our local firefighters and paramedics.

On Dec. 13 we host a lunch by donation at the Christmas Craft Faire held at the Senior Citizens’ Centre in City Park.

It has been a really great season and our team wants to thank everyone in the community for their participation in our events so far.
