This Saturday in the L.V. Rogers gym, the Recreational Leadership 11 and 12 classes will host its first Christmas fundraiser.

Each year, the leadership teacher encourages the Grade 12 class to think of a way to give back to the community that has supported the students for many years. This year they have decided to raise funds to support families in need.

The recreational leadership students have been busy trying to organize this event in a very short period of time.  The LVR Christmas fundraiser consists of a pancake breakfast, a bake sale, photos with Santa, and a silent auction. A craft table will also be available for younger children wanting to make a Christmas ornament or decorate gingerbread cookies.

Several Nelson businesses have donated items for our silent auction. All of the funds raised will go towards purchasing Christmas presents for families in need. Students hope this event is a great success.

The fundraiser will run from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.  Admission is by donation.

Please bring your families for breakfast, or stop by to purchase your Christmas baking, or bid on a silent auction item.

For more information, or to donate an item, please contact Sheri Morrison (Recreational Leadership teacher) or Taryn Scarff (Grade 12 organizer) at 250-352-5538 or email smorrison@sd8.bc.ca.
