Christmas celebration at the Church of the Nazarene
Be ready for an “Old fashioned Christmas” at the upcoming Christmas celebration at the Church of the Nazarene on December 18 at 6:30pm. The show is put on by Caroline Musical Productions and features the Caroline Family Singers and the Home Town Kids. Donna Stahlwick is Choir Director and choreography is by Lillian Coulson.
Caroline’s Fire Department needs volunteers
Daytime fire and accident coverage from the Caroline fire hall can no longer be guaranteed due to a lack of available volunteers as of December 1. This fact was emphasized at a recent meeting of the Village Council, following the announced move to a new job outside of the community by one of the department’s veteran fire fighters.
The Caroline Fire Department serves a population of some 5000 people in Caroline and the surrounding countryside and responds to highway and other accidents as well. It uses equipment that would be the envy of many professional departments for a variety of tasks, including vehicle extrication work and back country rescues.
This is an ideal opportunity for action oriented individuals to participate in real drama, rather than just watching it on TV. A volunteer commitment can also lead into a highly rewarding career as a professional fire fighter. For more information, contact Patrick Oslund at 403 845-4444.
Christmas hampers available.
Families, seniors and singles who are struggling financially during the holidays are welcome to receive Christmas hampers from the Shepherd’s Food Bank in Caroline.
Food and monetary donations are gratefully accepted with cheques payable to Christmas Hamper and Shepherd’s Food Bank, Nazarene Church, Box 195, Caroline, Alberta, T0M 0M0.
Adopt A Family & Santas Anonymous
Donations are now accepted to ensure that these programs are available again this Christmas for families and children in need. Donors, nominators and applicants can call Caroline Neighbourhood Place at 403 722-3787 for more information.
