Despite the lack of snow at this time, there definitely is an air of excitement! People are hanging up their Christmas lights making driving down to our little community centre a real delight, I have seen several wonderful displays so far. As usual, I have put forth my request to hubby to bring me home a normal sized tree this year, he just looked at me and said “I don’t think so”, more than likely I will end up with the 14 or 16 foot tall one again this year.
The Christmas Hamper campaign is turning out to be a huge success so far! At the Community Hall for our Wednesday bingo night, we have already filled two boxes with donated items and would like to do it again this coming Wednesday, not too many weeks left till we have our Turkey Bingo on Dec. 13.
The Cariboo Regional District is holding a meeting at the Community Hall on Dec. 11 at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend and participate. There will not be an open microphone but people will have equal opportunity to talk during small group discussions. The purpose of the meeting is to help the CRD hear our concerns and to help them improve in any further emergency situations. I think this will be a very important meeting and hope to see active participation from the residents of our community.
It is very distressing to hear that the LLH Share Shed was vandalized several times recently during closed times or during the late evenings. It is hard to understand when everything there is free, why should a person be allowed to spoil things for everyone. Further actions like this may just prompt the CRD to remove the share shed and we all lose out.
Some events of interest coming up on Dec. 15 – The Elementary School will be having a spaghetti dinner fundraiser, silent auction, 50/50 draw and the Christmas concert at the Community Hall. The fundraiser is to help with the cost of a trip to Barkerville for the students next spring. The doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner is served at 5.30 and the concert is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Cost of the dinner is $15 per person with kids 12 years old and younger to eat free.
The next scheduled event for Dec. 15 is the Coffeehouse music night at the Pioneer Center, any and all optional donations are to be designated for the Lac la Hache Volunteer Fire Department.
