Pioneer Trail Centre News & Update
Well the Christmas Season is officially here, with a great Festival of Lights held this past Saturday night. Pioneer Trail once again was the spot to be, as Mr. and Mrs. Claus showed up to greet the children and hear what their wishes are for Christmas. The children were once again entertained with decorating cookies and making cards. Thank you to all who helped to make the night a great success once again.
Bridge scores are in for the games held on Thursday November 15 at Pioneer Trail. 1st place went to Jan Quinney and Don Robertson (4120), 2nd place went to Jennie DeMille and Lilo Rolf (3050), 3rd place went to Barb and Bob Repas (2560). Once again, well done singing and leading contemporary worship, and we appreciate when we get the opportunity to partner in ministry. My hobbies are reading, playing games with my family, golf, cross-country skiing, going to costume parties with Joce, and telling puns and jokes. You may get a sense of this from my sermons! One of my favourite quotes is from Brennan players, see you week.
All Christmas items are now on sale for half price, stop by and see the many great Christmas items we have for you to purchase.
We are open six days a week from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m., with a different event going on each afternoon.

We also have our Choir that practices each Thursday morning, except for the third Thursday when you can find them performing at Hillview Manor and the Sunshine Lodge. Our games are open to everyone, so if you want to learn how to play or already know how to play stop by and play a game or two.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, drive safely, watch out for all four legged creatures out wandering around. all again next
