SENIORS SCENE: Christmas is coming to Kent Street

Holiday activities abound at White Rock's seniors’ centre.

Santa visits attendees of last year’s Mistletoe Lunch at Kent Street Activity Centre. This year’s event takes place Dec. 10.

Monday, Nov. 23 is the day for the Kent Street Activity Centre’s annual general meeting.

All members of the centre are invited to attend the AGM at 2:30 p.m.

Meet the Kent Street Centre executive, find out what is happening at the centre, enjoy a photo show and complimentary refreshments, and for all those who attend, their names will be entered in a draw for two 2016 Recreation and Culture memberships.

Time is running out to purchase tickets for two very popular Christmas events.

The Kent Street Chorister’s Sing We Now of Christmas concert Friday, Dec. 4 at the First United Church is sure to put you into the Christmas spirit.

The Kent Street Centre’s very own Mistletoe Lunch on Thursday, Dec. 10 from 12-3 p.m., promises a delicious meal, festive entertainment and a visit from the jolly, old fellow himself.

There are a limited number of tickets left for both events, so be sure to get yours soon.

Call 604-541-2231 for more information.

The Winter Recreation Guide is available to view online at www.whiterockcity.ca/register

Copies can be picked up at all White Rock Recreation and Culture centres, as well as the White Rock Library.

The Winter Recreation Guide is full of activities and programs which are certain to spark your interest.

Member-registration day is this Friday, Nov. 20, and non-member registration starts Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Classes fill up quickly, so don’t delay in registering for your favourite program, workshop or daytrip.
