FCSS plans family movie day in December

Ponoka families are invited to a free Christmas movie show to be hosted at the Ponoka Legion on Dec. 15.

Ponoka families are invited to a free Christmas movie show to be hosted at the Ponoka Legion on Dec. 15.

Emma Curran, program co-ordinator for the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), said the movie day is part of FCSS’s mandate to provide accessible community events. “It’s just something we feel the community could really benefit from.”

The Legion has stepped in to provide the space, which can hold up to 300 people and Ponoka Parent Link and the Early Childhood Development Coalition is also helping out. Those who want to attend should contact FCSS to get their tickets as organizers need to plan for the amount of people coming.

Expect a visit from Santa Claus and his elves (volunteers from the Ponoka East 4-H Beef Club) who will provide snacks and treats to moviegoers. Curran said tickets are only available at the office and she advised those that cannot attend give the tickets to a family that can make it.

“It’s really just a simple family event,” said Curran.

Doors open at 12 p.m. and the movie (yet to be determined) starts at 1 p.m.
