In Drayton Valley, visits from hockey players and elementary-school students, and a trip to view Christmas lights around town, lit up residents’ days. Read the full story here and see photos here.

Residents in Athens Creek in Penticton created an “angel tree,” painted snowmen, decorated ornaments with kindergarten kids, hosted a family of singers and much, much more. See photos here.

Stettler residents had a door-decorating contest, visited with the Claus family and rang in the new year with style! See photos here.

In Moose Jaw, residents enjoyed gifts from Christmas Spirit for Seniors, delivered by a Christmas-carol-singing group of Warrior hockey players. See photos here.

Snowflakes dangled from the ceiling and bright red napkins decorated the tables as residents and guests in Prince Albert enjoyed their Christmas Gala. See photos here.

Music was in full force in Wainwright, with violinists and choirs of all ages, plus essential activities like decorating cookies with youth and receiving Secret Santa presents. See photos here.
