Clearwater Rotary Christmas light-up

The Christmas lights are brightening up the Wells Gray Info Centre once again.

Members of the Clearwater Rotary were busy over the weekend decorating the entryway of the info centre for the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus. The Christmas light-up celebrations were once again put on hold this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, but that didn’t stop them from giving the kids a chance to say hi to Santa.

Parents drove through the info centre parking lot with their children cozy in their seats, who waved at Santa, Mrs. Claus and Gillian the elf. Those who wanted to delivered a letter to Santa as well.
