Another season of joy celebrated in our great community

This is the season when all the magnificent talents of our students and their teachers are showcased through a variety of Christmas

This is the season when all the magnificent talents of our students and their teachers are showcased through a variety of Christmas concerts that bring together neighbours and friends to celebrate.

Again this year, we’ve had the pleasure of attending many events, whether it has been band and choir concerts or dramatic performances, where we’ve seen how well our community supports its arts and culture sector.

As well, the outpouring of support for organizations such as the food bank and Christmas Bureau have been heartening.

Despite dealing with weather issues and illness typical of this season of the year, youngsters and adults have all contributed to the bright light which shines over Sylvan Lake when it comes to a community uniting.

Of course none of these things just happen. There’s a significant cadre of volunteers who contribute vast amounts of time to make sure the smiles that brighten everyone who sees them shine through at this special time of year.

Sylvan Lakers, thanks once again for doing what you do best, entertaining yet contributing at the same time to those less fortunate.

We truly do lived in a blessed community. Enjoy time with family and friends during this holiday season and be safe.
