If you know me personally, then you know I LOVE Christmas! I love decorating, baking, shopping, cutting down a tree, watching Christmas movies...all of it!! Having a 10 year old girl makes the whole holiday even that much more fun!!
If you know me personally, you also know that I love to volunteer my time to causes I really believe in. I sit on the board of NOYFSS (www.noyfss.org) because I truly believe the work they do makes such a huge difference in the lives of so many families in this area. I also volunteer at my daughter's school, Vernon Christian School (www.vcs.ca) because I believe all parents should volunteer at their kid's school AND because working with the staff and teachers at VCS is so much fun and SO rewarding!
Right now I am working with Corinne Remple putting together our Christmas Market at the school. This fantastic event takes place on November 23 at the school from 9:30 - 3 pm. The school is located at 6920 Pleasant Valley Road. It features local crafters and vendors (lots of unique gift ideas), has a kid's zone so you don't need to find sitters to leave your kids with at home and this year the Dessert Shoppe is being hosted by the Mexico Missions 2014 group. I LOVE THIS EVENT!! The school is decorated, the carols are playing and everything smells wonderful. If you have seen the school as you drive along Highway 97 and have ever wondered what it is like inside, this is your chance to do a little Christmas shopping, have a piece of homemade apple pie and check things out. Please attend. My 87 year old mother and I always make a day of it!
