Christmas will be coming early this year to the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury. The 1st Christmas in September Fair, hosted by the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre Auxiliary, will be held in the gymnasium on Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Numerous vendors will be present, displaying items perfect for Christmas gifts such as purses, soap, pies, candy, preserves and more.

Lynn Gray, manager of volunteer resources for the David Thompson Health Region, believes that the event will make for a valuable and fun time and encourages everyone to get a head start.

“It’s a great way to get a jumpstart on your Christmas shopping and at the same time help a very worthwhile cause,” said Gray.

All proceeds will go towards Patient Comfort and Care at the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre.

Vendors include the Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop, Brenda’s Staff Uniforms, It’s All in the Bag, Nut Man, Healthier Coffee, Glassatude, Robin’s Creative Memories, Nikken/Frequensea/Pampered Chef, Brenda’s Barnwood Benches, and many more.
