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 (WLCH). Doors will open at 5 p.m. with the potluck dinner at 6 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be coming after dinner.

There will be gifts for registered children. Please contact Gisele Poliseno at 250-395-9082 or Roze Sander at 250-456-6091 to register your children’s name, age and sex of the child, as well as, how many adults will be attending and what food item you will be bringing for the potluck dinner. The association will supply the ham and turkey for this event.

The cut-off for the children’s registration will be Saturday, Dec. 2, with no exceptions. Children not registered after this date will not receive a gift. The cut-off for the number of people coming will be on Thursday, Dec. 7, as the association will be setting up on Friday afternoon. Once again, please call either Gisele or Roze to let them know how many are coming to the party. A non-perishable food item donation to the food bank would be greatly appreciated.
