Christmas story and recipe contest extended

Additional entries will have to be in by Dec. 11

The 100 Mile House Free Press is has extended the deadline for their annual Christmas story writing and recipe contest to Dec. 11.

For the story contest, entries can be either fiction or non-fiction and should be about getting a Christmas tree or how your favourite Christmas tradition came about.

Recipe-wise, the Free Press is looking for your favourite Christmas Eve appetizer, Christmas day dinner or dessert dish everyone raves about.

Stories and recipes that are used in the Free Press’ Christmas Greetings (Dec. 21) will have a chance to win chamber bucks through a random draw.

Please email your stories and/or recipes to with “Christmas Contest” as the subject or drop your entries off at the 100 Mile Free Press office for Max Winkelman.
