I attended the Christmas tea and sale hosted by the United Church, Trinity Guild, and the Age of Sail museum. It was very well organized and a large crowd was in attendance.
James and Joanne Allen of Fox River and Mona and Don McCully of North Greville are both celebrating 50 years of marriage. Congratulations to both couples and I hope you enjoy many more happy years together.
Dale Hatfield will be taking a bus load of shoppers to Moncton, N.B. on Monday, Nov. 30, leaving Port Greville between 8-8:30 a.m. If you plan to go, please let Sharon Benjamin know so we can have an idea of the numbers.
The Christmas Carolers are in place at Grace United Church. It is always nice to see them in the community.
Some residents have begun to decorate their houses and yards with festive lights and decor. The Shore Drive Association is hoping to see many homes “lit up" by Dec. 1 to coincide with our community tree lighting at the FPW Fire Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 6:30 p.m. We are inviting residents from Wharton to Brookville to come over, see the tree, and enjoy some hot chocolate.
On Dec. 5, those who ordered "sweet trays" will be able to pick them up at the fire hall. Call Shirley Kuryluk for the time of pickup.
The Living Christmas Tree performances will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12 and Sunday, Dec. 13 at Grace United Church. It is always wise to go early as both nights are usually packed full of people who look forward to this event each year. I will check on the starting time and mention that in my news next week.
Upcoming events include: Childrens' Christmas party on Dec. 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Call Amber Lewis if you have not yet registered your child). This event is for children living between Wharton and Brookville who are 12 years old or under. The community Christmas dinner sponsored by the Shore Drive Community Development Association is set to go on Dec. 20. Tickets usually sell out quickly. If you wish to attend, please call Sharon Benjamin for tickets, which are $20 per person.
As Christmas approaches, let us all try and reach out in some way to the less fortunate. We can do this through: food bank donations, gifts for the homeless or those in shelters, visits to the elderly, shut-ins, or those living alone.
The Foxy Lady is out of news for now. Have a great week, everyone.
