Ponoka folks prepare for Community Christmas

Set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the event is expected to be a fun community gathering

Another year has come and gone but there’s one constant in all of it, the Ponoka Community Christmas.

Set for Christmas Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Ponoka Legion, the Community Christmas is a time for all residents to come together in a spirit of fellowship and camaraderie. It’s also a time for those who would otherwise be alone on the special day to spend time with others.

The Community Christmas has become such a staple experience in Ponoka with a special turkey dinner and no one leaves hungry. If there are leftovers, folks are given to-go boxes to take some food home.

Hosted by a large group of friendly volunteers and Bob and Deb Hepp, the event is an experience for everyone to enjoy time together.

Organizing the army of volunteers is Val Schabert who helps ensure things run smoothly.

The fun event is usually busy with people, plenty of food and treats and brings a range of local entertainers to keep the Christmas spirit up.

For more information on volunteering, please send us a message or you can reach Val at 403-783-8799.
