Lumby school seeks help making swags

There will be a holiday cedar swag building party today at J.W. Inglis Elementary School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Lumby residents can embrace the Christmas spirit while supporting local students.

There will be a holiday cedar swag building party today at J.W. Inglis Elementary School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“We are hoping to have community members, families of the school, the principal, teachers, the mayor, councillors and the local RCMP attend our fundraising event,” said Christine Lishman, with the school’s parents advisory committee.

The PAC has been commissioned to create 80 cedar swags which will be displayed in the community. In return, the village will donate $2,000 to go towards home reading books for the school.

Local logging contractors have contributed the cedar boughs for the project.

Hot chocolate and popcorn will be provided during the event today.
