Never a dull mo­ment in Rich­mond County, with lots of hol­i­day events still planned lead­ing up to Christ­mas.

There are three events, that I would like to high­light.

The first event is the New Hori­zons Arts for Se­niors pre­sen­ta­tion of The Rich­mond County Christ­mas Theatre at La Pi­casse in Petitde-Grat on Mon­day start­ing at 7 p.m. and again at the Lions Hall in St. Peter’s on Dec. 16 at 2 p.m.

Af­ter last year’s suc­cess­ful the­atri­cal pro­duc­tion, the group is back again with an­other fun-filled show. Made up of mu­sic, com­edy and skits, this event is sure to have you laugh­ing all evening long. The event is spon­sored by the Dr. Kingston Me­mo­rial Com­mu­nity Health Cen­tre in L’Ar­doise. Ad­mis­sion is a food item or a mon­e­tary do­na­tion for the lo­cal food bank.

The sec­ond event will have the au­di­ence tap­ping their toes along with the per­form­ers. On Dec. 17, La Pi­casse will host the dancers of the Trina Sam­son Dance School for a Christ­mas dance con­cert start­ing at 6:30 p.m.

The con­cert will have stu­dents from begin­ners at four years of age to the se­nior dance group, the Is­land Step­pers, who will per­form chore­ographed dance num­bers. Ad­mis­sion is $7 for adults and $2 for chil­dren un­der 15.

The third event is a mul­ti­cul­tural church con­cert hosted by the Pot­lotek Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre, it will take place at the Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion Catholic Church in Barra Head, on Dec. 19 at 6 p.m.

The con­cert will fea­ture an amaz­ing lineup of en­ter­tain­ers in­clud­ing Dwayne Cote and Ja­son MacDon­ald, Kevin Col­ford and The Step­pin Out Lit­tle Big Band, Court­ney MacPher­son, Joel Denny, the Mika­mawey School Choir and the East Rich­mond Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre School Choir.

This is a fundrais­ing event for two baby girls, Mya May and Pais­ley Jean Bernard, whose mother, Cas­sidy Bernard, died in Oc­to­ber. Her death re­mains un­der po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Let’s show our sup­port for these lit­tle girls and come to­gether for this fundrais­ing event. All pro­ceeds will go to the Bernard girls of the We’ko­qma’q First Na­tion.
