What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Festive Countdown to Banish Humbug Begins

Theatrix Christmas Carol Inlet Theatre Port Moody

‘twas the week before Christmas, and all through the Tri Cities not an event was stirring, not even a fundraiser … a seasonally quiet week for entertainment but I suspect residents will be out and about making their own. School’s out on Friday. Keep going – you’re on the home stretch now!

And don’t forget, it’s never too late to give to your local food bank – details over at SHARE (just sayin’).
