Cruising for Christmas lights
Searching Facebook, we’ve been able to find out where some of the best Christmas lights displays are. So if you’re out for a drive, be sure to include these areas on your route:
• By Davis Road
• Holland Creek Place
• Ryan Place
• Davidson Road
• Pictou Road in The Diamond
• Fourth Avenue Extension across from Hartley Road
• Bel Aire above Fourth Avenue Extension
• Chemainus Road just after Green Hill Drive
• Chemainus Road just before Olsen Road
There are probably many more great houses we don’t even know about, so have fun exploring!
Coats for Folks has moved
There is an abundance of warm coats, boots, hats and mittens available for free for anyone who needs them.
People have been very generous in donating coats of all sizes, shapes and styles for the Coats for Folks program, and anyone who needs a coat or knows someone who needs one is welcome to drop by 432 First Ave. (the old Grant Jewellers and Impeccable Jewellers) Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We have had the most incredible response from people,” said Nita Grant. “People are so, so generous, and I thank the community so much.”
Grant also noted that there are women who knit items for this program all year long.
