Christmas Tree Decorating and Carols
December 12, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Come to your Club on Saturday December 12 at 4 pm and help decorate the Christmas tree. Please bring along a decoration.
We are fortunate to have Sound Eclectic Choir to come and sing carols. This is a 14 member choir, conductor and pianist that will sing their Christmas repertoire and also have carols for us to sing along to if you choose. Visit their website for more information https://www.soundeclectic.ca/upcoming-performances.html
Santa has been invited and may put in a brief appearance. He is pretty busy and will have no presents.
We plan to collect donations of food or money for the Union Gospel Mission on East Hastings St who will be providing some cheer over Christmas to those in need. You can obtain more information about the services that they provide at https://www.ugm.ca/
Tea, rum punch and some snacks will be available. The bar will be open.
This is a free event. Invite your friends and neighbours. It is an excellent way to get into the Christmas spirit and help those in need.
