Christmas party on Dec. 9

Gisele Poliseno’s regular correspondence for the North Green Lake/Watch lake area

Just a friendly reminder to our community, that the Watch Lake/Green Lake Community Association (WLGLCA) will be having a Christmas party on Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Watch Lake Community Hall. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with the potluck dinner at 6 p.m. A surprise visitor will be coming at 7:30 p.m.

There will be goodies for registered children. Please contact Joni Guenther at 250-456-7330 or Judy Thatcher 250-456-6031 to let them know how many children and adults will be attending and what food item you will bring to the potluck dinner.

The association will supply the ham and turkey for this event. The cut-off for the number of people coming will be on Thursday, Dec. 7 as the association will be setting up on Friday morning. A non-perishable food item donation to the food bank would be greatly appreciated.

Christmas Hamper

The Watch Lake-North Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (WLNGLVFD) are wanting to show their extra support to our community by having Christmas Hamper donation boxes. The boxes are at the 70 Mile Store and 99 Mile Supermarket. Any non-perishable food items, unwrapped gifts, toys, etc. are appreciated. The boxes will be collected prior to Christmas and a hamper will be distributed to a family in our area.

If you have anyone who may be deserving of a hamper, please place your suggestion in the donation box. A huge thank you to the businesses that made room and allowed the fire department to have the donation boxes in their store.

Christmas Bake Sale

The Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute (WLDWI) Annual Christmas Bake Sale will be on Friday, Dec. 15 at the Cariboo Mall from 10 a.m. until they sell out. There will be an assortment of baked goods available and what a great time to purchase your Christmas baking. Proceeds from the bake sale will be dedicated to a charity. Baking and/or cash donations would be most welcome. Please contact Helen Eagle at 250-456-2413 or Ruth Kachur at 250-395-1163 for more information.

Special Wishes

Happy wedding anniversary to Ron and Barb Thurston on Dec. 18. Have a wonderful day.

Get well wishes and a speedy recovery to Shirley Mitchell from all your friends.
