An invitation to CSS Chrismas Festival

I would like to invite the North Thompson Valley community to the CSS Christmas Festival to be held Thursday, Dec. 6 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Editor, The Times:

On behalf of the Clearwater Secondary School students and Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), I would like to invite the North Thompson Valley community to the CSS Christmas Festival to be held Thursday, Dec. 6 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

It will be a night of art, music, entertainment, crafts and cookies decorating, plus performances by our youth theatre group and music groups.

The CSS shop classes will have 30 signs available for purchase and custom design – this is an incredible program offered at CSS with continued thanks to Wells Gray Community Forest.

Santa will make an appearance and there also will be a Dear Santa letter writing station. Come have a family photo taken – we’d like show off the new printer. Bring your loonies and toonies – there will be something for every size wallet, including a bake sale and a raffle for a truckload of firewood (dry fir!).

All proceeds from the evening will go to school arts, music, theatre and sports as well as to purchase new books for the library.

This will be a fun evening for a great cause … schools are funded on levels of enrollment and with a mere 230 students, the funding model is skinny and PAC fundraising efforts are essential to enhance school opportunities that aren’t available due to our rural nature. Our CSS kids have all sorts of talents and with a community behind them, we are confident that they can blaze their own trail of success and personal achievement.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Shelley Sim, chair
