Children hold their own art show and sale

Come support these young artists with your attendance and by purchasing some wonderful art. Proceeds from works sold will go to the Oliver Food Bank. What a great learning experience for these children. Be sure to enjoy some of Medici’s coffee and treats or a late lunch while you’re there!

In addition to all the amazing plants that have been donated to us, we’re also holding a loonie auction, there will be live music by The Gala Vanters (www.thegalavanters.com), the Oliver Ambassador program will be holding a Barbeque (all profits go to support their program), and Leza McDonald will be running a kids craft corner and art show. There will also be information booths and a seed swap.

Community Christmas Concert December 4

Remember years ago the afternoon Christmas concerts with several Oliver groups participating? The singalong? The kids? The goodies? Well, it’s ho-ho-here again!

The Oliver Community Arts Council is reviving this tradition and presenting a programme full of local entertainment. Fun for the whole family!  The concert is set for Sunday December 4 at 2:30 p.m. using the venue at the Oliver Alliance Church. Admission is FREE but donations to the arts council and Oliver Food Bank are welcome.  

The programme has something for everyone: the Swingin’ Bronze Handbell Ringers, Lori Martine with a  flute instrumental, Bill Phillips with a recitation, the Desert Bronze Handbell Ringers, Bob Park with a guitar instrumental, the Oliver Handbell Ringers, a “teaser” sampling from the Sage Valley Voices (who have a fabulous concert planned the next weekend!),  a vocal/piano duet by Hal H. Hopson and Dorothy Moore, dancing by Delaney Wise, the Oliver Elementary School Chorus, South Okanagan Secondary School Band, the Advent Alliance ensemble, the South Okanagan Adventist Christian School Choir, and the Desert Air Men’s Chorus. What a lineup! 

The concert will promote other seasonal events happening locally. Check out some of the publicity in the foyer. Fill your calendar with joyous celebrations!

The concert concludes with goodie bags for the kids. Thank you to the Oliver Ambassadors, Sheila Lange, Buy-Low Foods, and Super Valu for their support!
