The glorious Indian summer temperatures may have been 25 plus degrees outside, but the spirit of Christmas was in full bloom at the Centennial Centre gymnasium as the Volunteer Resources department of both Ponoka Hospitals played host to their annual Christmas in September Fair.
Over 14 vendors were on hand for the occasion on Sept. 30 and presented a delightful array of food, crafts, beauty products, giftware and much more for the early Christmas shopping pleasure of a great crowd of patients, families, staff, volunteers and visitors. The casual event also featured a magnificent copper toned Christmas tree, complete with matching decorations and angel; which was kindly donated by Direct Travel Service.
Proceeds from the fair will go to the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre Auxiliary Patient and Comfort Care Fund. The Christmas tree will go to a lucky winner on Dec. 8, with tickets now available at the Volunteer Resources offices at both hospitals, and proceeds going to the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre Bed Fund.
Everyone is invited share the joys of Christmas with patients at both the Ponoka Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury and the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre with donations of gifts, entertainment, or your presence at the many scheduled functions.
