Helpful elves: The Children’s Christmas Shopping Party, sponsored by the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce, was held at St. Augustine School Dec. 7. Children enjoyed a day of shopping, with help from “elves” (the Scouts), who also helped to wrap and tag their gifts, got to visit with Santa, and were treated to complementary cookies from Sommer Home Hardware.

The St. Augustine Grade 8 and 9 students’ gingerbread competition entries were on display during the Children’s Christmas Shopping Party Dec. 7. Shoppers voted for their favourite house by donating change in the jars in front of each house. All the donated money will go towards KidSport Ponoka. The winning house creators will receive personalized chef coats.
