Has Christmas Day become too quiet? Gathering too small? Kids can’t make it? Maybe you’re new to the area?

Whatever the reason – you are invited to a Christmas dinner family style at the new venue of the Westside Senior’s Activity Centre at 3661 – Old Okanagan Highway.

Doors open at 1 p.m. with music and socializing. For more information contact Helen Graham @ 250-300-6434.
