Free community Christmas event planned for Dec. 18

Editor, The Times:

To all North Thompson Valley residents –

The Aboriginal Engagement Success By 6 table and North Thompson Aboriginal Sharing Centre will host a free Christmas community event on Sunday, Dec. 18, at the Elks hall in Clearwater from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Last year the Aboriginal Engagement Success By 6 table and North Thompson Aboriginal Sharing Centre hosted a Christmas event with Clearwater Chamber of Commerce. This year our partners are Clearwater Festival and Events Society (CFES) and Royal Purple Lodge #302.

This community event will be to gather and share in the Christmas Spirit. Long ago adults would put aside any differences, they had and made the holiday season a special time for all children. It is not about all the glamour, glitz and presents. It is about taking time to relax and enjoy each other’s company. It is our job to teach the children the true meaning of Christmas. If we do not teach them, then who will?

On that note, this is why we have fundraised throughout the year so that we could give back to the community, by hosting a free family event.

There will be free food, free door prizes, free games, free crafts The admission to this wonderful event will be a smile. So put on your Santa or elf hat and join us.
