Volunteerism alive and well in the community

Without volunteers, Christmas Dinner event could not, and would not have taken place.

After a very successful Christmas dinner hosted by the two seniors groups, Old Age Pensioners Organization and the Sicamous Seniors Activity Centre, which saw a packed house on Dec. 2, I would like to make our community aware that volunteerism in Sicamous is not yet dead.

Without volunteers, this event could not, and would not have taken place.

Our volunteers were from all generations. From the Eagle River Secondary high school students, to the 90-year-old seniors, they were there for us. Also, the Sicamous Eagles Jr. B hockey team were on standby to assist as needed.

The hall and tables were beautifully decorated, the carol singing was great and the turkey dinner wonderful. A great time was had by all that attended.

Thank you Santa’s elves who spent time setting up and decorating the tables, and the gals who made the centerpieces, making the hall very festive.

A huge thank you to the kitchen crew and servers – what a great job.

Hugh and Dorreen-Favel Wilson,
B.C. Old Age Pensioners’ Organization, Sicamous Br. #89
