Christmas events to light up the holidays

Christmas music and festive crafts to make the season brighter.

The Cache Creek Beautification Society is calling for local musicians who wouldn’t mind playing or singing a Christmas tune or two at the third annual Winter Lights Appreciation/Community Singalong on Dec. 18.

The night also features the Desert Bells Hand Bell Choir, the Simple Pleasures recorder duo and a public singalong. Please call Carmen at 250-457-1250 before Dec. 8 if you are interested.

This free event also recognizes all of the great seasonal lights that brighten up Cache Creek at this time of year. The group will take all nominations and hand out appreciation certificates during the event. This year there is a special prize draw of an outdoor yard ornament valued at $100 to be drawn from the names of the nominees attending the event.

Anyone can be nominated – this is not a contest. Everyone nominated will receive an invitation and a certificate. Nominate your neighbours or nominate yourself, it’s all good. Call Marcie at 778-207-6957 with your nomination.

Two other Christmas dates worth mentioning: the Cache Creek Garden Club, another of the Society’s sub-committees, is offering a workshop on Dec. 14 for making Christmas table centres. It will be held from 2-4 pm at the Cache Creek school. There is a $5 fee and you have to pre-register with Carmen at 250-457-1250.

And on Dec. 20, come out and hear the Sage Sounds Choir at the Pentecostal Church on Stage Rd. in Cache Creek. They will be joined by the Desert Bells Hand Bell Society.

Lastly, mark your calendars for the second annual Seedy Saturday on Feb. 7 in the Cache Creek Community Hall. Organizers are planning a bigger and better event for local gardeners who will, by then, be ready for Spring.
