Volunteer: Be a part of making gingerbread memories come to life

Last year, more than 400 people enjoyed building and viewing about 90 gingerbread creations.

Does the aroma of gingerbread bring back happy memories of Christmas? Do you want to have fun creating fresh memories for children this Christmas season?

Why not get involved with the 2012 Gingerbread House Event? Last year, more than 400 people enjoyed building and viewing about 90 gingerbread creations.

Add your organizational skills and enthusiasm to the planning committee that has already begun to meet. This is a short-term commitment, ending in December.

Use your acting skills and dress up as the mascot during community events to spread the word and about the Gingerbread House Event to celebrate with children and adults alike.

Maybe you are a ‘day of’ kind of person. You want to show up on event day, help everything run smoothly and add to the buzz of laughter and photo taking.

There is a spot for you to get involved. Visit the website at www.gingerbreadevent.com or email Clinton Dixson at chairman@gingerbreadcompetition.ca.

The Gingerbread House Event will be held on Sunday, Dec. 16, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., at Parkinson Recreation Centre in Kelowna.

It is presented by The Red Hot Chili Paddlers Dragon Boat Team in support of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs’ Cool Moves program that promotes physical activity and healthy eating.

You can pay a $25 registration fee and submit your gingerbread creation in the youth, adult, family or chef category. Build a gingerbread kit at the event or start from scratch at home. The choice is yours.
