Forshee Country Christmas Concert held on Dec. 2 was another success.

The people who attended and participated in the concert had a grand time. From a young performer of the approximate age of three to our oldest performer at the approximate age of 88, we were well entertained. Entertainment from musical arrangements, vocal arrangements, skits, rhythm band that was arranged on the spot and, of course, the nativity play that includes all the children in the audience who wanted to participate.

Santa’s early arrival after the concert was welcomed with squeals of delight from the children and special candy bags were given to each child.

Thanks to the Forshee Hall Board for supplying the hall at no charge for this annual event and for supplying janitorial services after the evening was done.

This is truly a community event put on by the Forshee Ladies Club, The Get Together Ladies Club and the Forshee Hall.

Donations for the Rimbey Food Bank were gratefully received and have been delivered to the appropriate organizations. The delicious lunch was served after the event and a wonderful time was spent visiting old and new friends.

The weather was foggy earlier in the evening, but when it was time to go home the fog had lifted and people were guided home in the moonlight.

We would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope to see you all next year.
