Delivering Christmas cheer

No one should be alone on Christmas

Thank You Victory Life for hosting your 13th Free Christmas Dinner at 5 p.m. on Christmas Day at the Parkinson Recreation Centre. 

By saying “No one person should spend Christmas alone,” Victory Life is expecting over 500 people. 

Everything is free  — turkey dinner, gifts for children and youth, 200 food gift bags, and an evening full of entertainment.  

There are lots of ways to be involved even if you are not able to make it on the 25th, but please consider donating to Victory Life as it costs them over $30 per person. 

The Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission has announced its 2017 board.

Congratulations to new board members: Janice Larson, Matt Gomez, Chris Lapointe and Chris Mazurkewich.

Enjoy your holidays as the work is about to begin.

L’Oven Farm Fresh Foods is holding its first Olde Victorian Christmas Festival at 4 p.m. today in hopes that it becomes a Westside Christmas tradition just like its Thanksgiving dinner did.  

There will be Victorian-themed entertainment, chestnuts and smores on the patio, mulled wine, eggnog and handmade rum fruit cake.

Come and sing Christmas carols with Santa, but if you’re hungry and would rather be indoors, then join their Victorian buffet at 5:30 p.m. 

While you’re there, order your Christmas dinner too. Check out their website for all the details. 

Make it a great Christmas.
