Minitonas Metis Local Hosts Christmas Coffee House

Submitted by: Lesley Sembaluk |

The Christmas Coffee House that was put on by the Minitonas Metis Local on December 8, 2018 was a fun and entertaining evening. There was about 100 people in attendance, with performances from musicians and singers from all around the Swan Valley and beyond.

Our youngest performer on the stage was 4 years old and our oldest was 91 years.

The Gifford Sanderson Memorial Dancers entertained the crowd in beautiful Christmas themed outfits.

Coffee, tea, and juice was served to the attendees, along with dainties and snacks.

Door prizes were won by Nick Lapsuik, Nick Watson, Ed Yablonski and Patsy Davey. The Christmas Hamper basket was won by Janet Watson and 50/50 went to Gwen Hay.

Thanks to everyone who came out, and to those who performed. We hope to do this again, so keep an eye out for future coffee houses from the Minitonas Metis Local!
