On December 8, Burton will host its 4th annual Community Christmas Party at the Burton Fire Hall, starting with a parade at 3:30 p.m., so deck your self up and be part of it. The parade will set off from Burton Community Learning Centre and make its way to the Fire Hall.
This year, volunteers will again be serving a whole pig roast for dinner. Tickets for the feast are available for $15 and are going fast; all tickets must be purchased by December, so don’t delay. Your money will be going to support the Burton Volunteer Fire Department, but if you’ve been taken over by the spirit of generosity and feel like giving more, not a problem. Donations can be given to the Burton Community Hall Board.
The dinner will also feature a baked goods sale, bingo, raffle, silent auction, 50/50, and a “chicken drop.” The raffle prizes include a logging truck load of seasoned birch firewood, a skookum ski jacket donated by K2, a load of gravel, and a dinner and soak for two out at Halcyon. The silent auction also has a rich selection of neat stuff to bid on.
In the evening, there will be live local musicians, fire pits, a cash bar and dancing. Make sure you don’t miss it! Please bring a non-perishable donation for the food bank when you come, too, so others can enjoy a feast of their own.
The BVFD are grateful for the Columbia Basin Trust for their support for this event, which is one highlight in the Burton calendar. For more info and to purchase dinner or raffle tickets, please call Wayne at 250-265-3820.
