Christmas events set for Richmond
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.
