Kinettes’ first Christmas party a success

More than 250 people attended the Ponoka Kinette Club’s first holiday party, targeted at local businesses looking to find a way

More than 250 people attended the Ponoka Kinette Club’s first holiday party, targeted at local businesses looking to find a way to entertain staff.

“It was, we’re hoping, to be our first annual business Christmas party,” said Kinette Leah Cline.

The event was held at the Stagecoach Saloon Saturday, Dec. 6 with many different businesses attending.

“We kind of thought it was something that was lacking in the community,” she explained.

She said Kinettes used the party as an opportunity to give businesses some holiday entertainment and as a way to raise funds for their Centennial Park Playground. The group is working with the Ponoka Lions to improve the park.

Bull Skit Comedy was hired to provide some laughs and entertainment with their improvisational comedy routines. Cline said they provided some great moments during the evening.

“The improv stuff was fantastic and hilarious,” said Cline.

Cline says each year the Kinettes will hire a different act to change up the entertainment. She said they would not know the full amount raised until full numbers have been tallied.
