Living Christmas Tree practicing for final year again
There was a large crowd at the Christmas tea and sale in Port Greville, hosted by the United and Anglican churches and Age of Sail museum. People of all ages came from Parrsboro, Diligent River, Wharton, Brookville, Advocate, etc.
One of the people there commented, “Isn’t it nice how everyone supports all the functions and activities?” Every weekend there are several events in our communities, especially as we get closer to Christmas.
I would like to extend sympathy to Donna Benjamin and her sister Margie on the loss of their brother-in-law, Dale Graham, who passed away recently.
We have our monthly meeting of the Shore Drive Community Development Association this week. I will pass along information from our meeting in next week’s news.
This coming weekend the annual Harrison’s hockey tournament takes place at the Parrsboro rink. Come on out and cheer on your local teams. It is always a well-organized and exciting tournament.
I have noticed that a few folks have begun to put up their outside Christmas decorations. The town of Parrsboro and surrounding communities are always very festive and tastefully decorated for the Christmas season.
Practices have been taking place for the Living Christmas Tree, which will be the final one, celebrating 25 years, I have been told. Mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 13 and Sunday, Dec. 14 to see this year’s production. Both nights are usually packed houses.
Please remember to contact Amber Lewis to register your child for the Christmas party (age 12 and under) on Saturday, Dec. 20 and Sharon Benjamin for the community Christmas dinner. ($20 per person) on Sunday, Dec. 21 at 4 p.m. Both the children’s Christmas party and the Christmas dinner take place at the FPW Fire Hall.
If you have any news you would like to see included in this column, please call or email me prior to Sunday at 5 p.m.
I read this week that some notable weather experts are predicting a shorter and warmer winter than we had last year in this part of the country. Time will tell as to the accuracy of this forecast. Personally, I enjoy the snow although I do not particularly like to shovel wet slushy snow, which weighs a ton.
The Foxy Lady is out of news, so have a great week, everyone.
