The WLGLCA Christmas dinner on Dec. 10, at the WLCH, was a huge success with 91 guests attending. The wonderful buffet included an assortment of foods such as turkey, ham and all the trimmings. After dinner, Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the elves arrived and wrapped gifts were given out to 18 children who attended.

Draws for the baskets and door prize were held at the end of the evening. Everyone had a wonderful time. A big thank you goes to all the individuals who donated items for the prizes, all the hardworking volunteers who decorated the community hall, took care of the registration of the guests, helped during the evening, and all who brought food for the dinner. Without all of you, this would not have been a success.

If you would like to rent the WLCH for receptions like weddings or anniversaries, birthday parties, get-togethers, meetings, and other activities, please contact Joni Guenther at 250-456-7330. She will gladly book the days you require for that special day.

Special wishes
