The Bethlehem Walk, a tradition in Rimbey for several years, went off well this year, thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to put it all together.
Terry Oke, one of the organizers said he is grateful for all the volunteers.
He noted that Barry Nesbitt has worked hard for several years to put the event together.
“Without Barry it couldn’t be done,” he said. “He provides the bales, clears the snow and does much more. We would have a difficult time pulling this all together without him.”
He also mentioned Keith Kendrew who comes every year with his trusty donkey to play the role of Joseph.
He noted that volunteer Corey Glen, who drove the team of horses so everyone who wanted to could go for a wagon ride was impressed because often the group in the wagon would start singing Christmas carols.
During the evening 150 bowls of chili were handed out. Seven bags of groceries and $189.75 in cash was taken to the Rimbey Food Bank.
“The event was an opportunity to families to enjoy some Christmas joy. It is a blessing to put this on for families.”
