Children had the opportunity to play games

Children welcome winter

Blueberry Creek Community School (BCCS) hosted a winter festival and market for children over the weekend.

Blueberry Creek Community School (BCCS) hosted a winter festival and market for children over the weekend. The event was a combination of family fun and fundraiser. The building was bustling with activity and BCCS community liaison Rebecca McDonnell said, “It’s gone really well. We have had a lot more visitors than we thought we would have. We are really really pleased. The feedback is tremendous. People are having fun and we are having fun. Its a great community builder.”

Children were able to participate in a number of activities including story time, crafts and posing for photos with characters from Frozen. There was also a children’s market that featured a variety of items ranging from hand made crafts and clothing to comic books and chocolates.

Fortis BC donated new LED Christmas lights to the school, so for the first time in its history the school’s exterior was illuminated with blue and white holiday cheer.

“We are extremely grateful to Trowelex for sponsoring this event,” said McDonnell, “and to all of our volunteers who have given so much of their time.”
