This event is jointly sponsored by the library and the Chamber of Commerce. Sixteen trees and twenty-five gingerbread houses were entered.

Six classrooms of excited children came to tour the library and enjoy some juice and cookies while listening to a story.

Over 300 people came through the doors to vote for their favorite tree and gingerbread house. Christmas music, hot apple cider, cookies, children’s laughter and neighbours visiting made this a very successful event.

People’s Choice for the tree category was Swan Valley Ag. Society

People’s choice for the Gingerbread houses was Ecole Swan River South

Guess the number of candies winners were Lorraine Goodman and Taylor Bass.

Happy Holidays!
