Liv­ing Christ­mas Tree prac­tic­ing for fi­nal year again

The Citizen-Record (Cumberland) - - COMMUNITY - Gail Wagstaff

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.
