Events adding up for Christmas in Sicamous

Christmas is coming and events are already revving up for Sicamous.

Christmas is coming and events are already  revving up for Sicamous.

The spirit begins to climb with the Christmas Hamper and Gift Campaign, starting Nov. 15, and the Christmas Craft Fair at Eagle River Secondary on Saturday, Nov. 19.

The first Eagles home game where a food bank contribution means a discounted game ticket is on Dec. 2 against Penticton, and again on the 4th against Chase. The Toque Toss Christmas game is on the 16th, and the last game before Christmas is on the 18th.

Santa’s Breakfast and Workshop is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3, 8 to 11 a.m. upstairs at the rec centre. The Downtown Light-up would normally be this weekend, but needs a group to spearhead it this year.

The Early Years Fair and Skating Party is happening 1 to 4 p.m. at the arena up and downstairs on Wednesday, Dec. 14, and will be followed by the arrival of the marvelously-lit CPR Holiday Train to Silver Sands Junction.

The community dinner planners and volunteers had their first meeting on Sunday, Oct. 16, and are looking for more help with preparing and hosting Christmas dinner for those alone for the holiday. Traditionally, this meal opens it doors at noon on the 25th at the Senior’s Centre. If you can help, please call to indicate your support to Diana at  250-836-2446.

These are only a few of the traditional dates that make Christmas in Sicamous a wonderful month.

If your event is not listed here, it means that you need to contact Pam with updates and confirm details for a Christmas In Sicamous schedule of events.

As you set your dates and details, they can be posted on the Chamber of Commerce and the District of Sicamous  websites, and on Facebook too, so you best start planning now.

To update your event info, call 250-515-1692.

Submitted by the Christmas in Sicamous Committee.
