Anyone having trouble finding the Christmas spirit should head to Nanton for the Community Christmas Concert on Wednesday December 13th.

Organizer and singer Pam Woodall, who is also performing, says there is great entertainment lined up and as always all the money raised goes to the food bank.
"I am looking forward to hear some people that I haven't heard play before," said Woodall. "And a few people that some people might be surprised to find out they play music. A few ringers that you didn't know about."

The performers include Mariya Stokes, Morgan Wilson, Mark Parsons, Charlie Ewing and the Grady Brown Trio.

The one rule of the concert is the songs must contain the words Christmas or Snow in order to be performed.

They are accepting donations for the food bank, but there is a ticket cost as well.

"There is a ticket price of $10 per person, $15 per family, a suggested price, nobody would ever get turned away at the door, but all that money goes right to the food bank."

The concert is at the Community Centre, doors open at 6:30 and the concert gets underway at 7 p.m.

"It is just a great community event that gets people thinking about Christmas. It is a low pressure gig for people, they want to do a good job, but it is a warm friendly community here who just likes music and just doing something that is in the spirit of the season."
