Light Up expects 'warm' reception

With no more fire pots available to sponsor, the Kitchen Boutique gingerbread house contest set to take place (see page 26) and enough free hot chocolate and hot dogs for everyone to have a bite, it seems Cochrane Light Up organizer Shana Bruder can

With no more fire pots available to sponsor, the Kitchen Boutique gingerbread house contest set to take place (see page 26) and enough free hot chocolate and hot dogs for everyone to have a bite, it seems Cochrane Light Up organizer Shana Bruder can breathe easy this Saturday.

“A huge thank you to everyone who came out last year in the freezing cold to support this long-standing event,” said Bruder.

“This year, so far, the weather looks to be glorious compared to last year and I hope it will bring out even more outstanding Cochranites than last year. I am truly thankful to live in a town with so many supportive and truly passionate residents.”

Bruder added that even though the Christmas cheer event only takes place from 5-7 p.m. on Nov. 24, none of it would happen if not for a dedicated team of volunteers.

The Cochrane Light Up committee is in need of new additions to the team in order to continue building upon the community event’s success, year after year.

Numerous family-related activities will be taking place throughout Cochrane’s seasonally-decorated, lit-up downtown.

Email cochranelightup@shaw.ca to get on board as a volunteer next season.

Cochrane Activettes will be accepting donations for their food bank during the event.
