Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

As I sit here writ­ing this, now that the cal­en­dar tells me it’s De­cem­ber, I have my Christ­mas ear­rings dan­gling from my ears.

This time of year is busy for us here at the Chron­i­cle.

There is plenty on, from Christ­mas par­ties at child­care cen­tres and the Christ­mas pa­rade to choir con­certs and Christ­mas at the Park. It may be a busy time but it’s also a time to re­mem­ber those that are less for­tu­nate.

In next week’s Chron­i­cle we will fea­ture de­tails of the an­nual Mata­mata Com­mu­nity Christ­mas Din­ner.

Vol­un­teers aplenty come out on Christ­mas Day (and many be­fore­hand) to pre­pare a fan­tas­tic lunch for those that are less for­tu­nate or for those who are lonely. If you and your fam­ily would like to make a dif­fer­ence this year, I’d ask you to con­sider giv­ing your time to this cause. It’s be­cause of spe­cial peo­ple like those who or­gan­ise the Com­mu­nity Christ­mas Din­ner that make my heart swell with all those fuzzy feel­ings this fes­tive sea­son.
