Rotary hosts carol festival

Tune up your singing voice as the annual carol festival happens Nov. 30

Sometimes it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until you hear your favourite carols and get to sing merrily along.

Next Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. you’ll get that chance as the Mission Rotary Club hosts its annual Christmas Carol Festival at the Clarke Theatre with proceeds going to charity.

This year’s festival features carol-singing from Deroche Elementary, Hatzic Elementary, Joy Vox Community Choir, ESR Elementary, Heritage Park Secondary, Hatzic Secondary, West Heights Elementary and Cherry Hill Elementary.

Also performing are groups from Valley Arts and Talent, and Fraser Valley Stage Society.

At the end of the program is a sing-along portion, which is always an audience favourite.

Admission is by donation to the Food Bank and Christmas Bureau and Rotarians will be on hand in the lobby to assist Phil Hope from Mission Community Services in collecting the items.

Please bring only new clothing or gifts to donate to the bureau (for health concerns, no used items can be accepted).

For further information call Rotarian Pam Alexis at 604-302-2005.

If you can’t make it out to the Clarke Theatre and still want to donate to a needy family this Christmas, the bureau is open at the Junction Mall from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. It will stay open tomorrow night until midnight.
