Wendy Coomber and Kirk Watson at the Cache Creek Winter Gathering.

Festive winter gathering

Music of all sorts, including a Christmas singalong, was on the menu at the annual Cache Creek Winter Gathering

The fifth annual Winter Lights gathering, sponsored by the Cache Creek Beautification Society, was held at the Cache Creek Community Hall on December 10. Several dozen people gathered to listen to Wendy Coomber and Kirk Watson (on recorder and guitar respectively); Roman Jackson, who sang two songs and recited a poem by Johnny Cash; the Desert Bells Handbell Choir, using their new handchimes for the first time; and singer/guitarist Theresa Takacs. Certificates of appreciation were given out to all those whose houses were nominated, and Kat and Mike Shepherd won the prize of a Christmas lawn ornament. The evening also featured sweet treats and drinks, and concluded with a singalong of favourite Christmas songs.
