Is this a great town or what?

Today there was free public skating under Christmas lights at the Powell River Recreation Complex.

It was provided by CUPE (The Canadian Union of Public Emplyees) Locals 798, 476 and 873 representing the Powell River Municipal, Library, and School Board workers, and Ambulance Paramedics.

In addition to two hours of free skating, there was hot chocolate and a visit with Santa.

New and gently-used coats, boots and toys were also collected to be distributed later through a local charity. It's so wonderful to live in such a great town with so many caring people, especially this time of year! -- Margy
