‘People were so thankful’

Strong support helps local hamper program meet rising demand By Jennifer Lang Christmas arrived early for nearly 300 local families last Saturday, when recipients turned out for what’s known as ‘Hamper Day’ in Cloverdale. “It’s been awesome. Everything just went beautiful,” said Kevin Lunder of the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program Monday. “We unloaded 1,000 boxes of food.” While the 2013 tally isn’t yet in, he estimates close to 300 families have been helped, up 20 per cent from last year due to rising demand, including from seniors. “People were so thankful,” on hamper day, Lunder said. “It went so smooth. There were lots of tears. And so many volunteers showed up to help them load the cars.” The hampers contain a combination of fresh fruits and vegetables, plus non-perishable food items. Recipients receive gift cards from Price Smart to buy turkeys. Children and teens are welcome to select a gift or two from the toy room, which is filled with brand new, unwrapped presents arranged by recipient age group. Cloverdale Elementary schools are the largest contributors of toy donations, said Lunder, who acts program lead along

with wife Trish. Dedicated volunteers like Marie Kovacs and Sandy Doyle were part of the army of volunteers assembling hampers last week. On Dec. 12, they were nearing the end of their final shift, sorting donations and putting together hampers to meet Saturday’s deadline. “It’s fun,” said Doyle, insisting she prefers working at the warehouse, helping others, to shopping in crowded malls. Kovacs, meanwhile, had been there four days in a row, and figured she hasn’t missed a year since the program began. The Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program is run by volunteers, and relies on support from businesses, individuals, churches and schools in the Cloverdale area. Even Surrey’s first responders got involved, helping collect 500 pounds of food and $900 in cash during Hillcrest Village Shopping Centre’s Cloverdale Community Cares event. The Cloverdale Legion also donated $2,000. In the spirit of giving, Clayton Heights and Lord Tweedsmuir secondary schools formalized a good-natured rivalry for donations and declared a contest to see which school could collect the most nonSee STEP UP / Page 5

Coat drive launched The threat of snow and more cold weather has inspired a local youth group to hold a winter coat drive. Friday, Dec. 20, from 5-8:30 p.m. the Surrey Cares Youth Empowering Team (YES) is gathering coats at City Centre Library. The coats will be

donated to a non-profit organization helping homeless people. The YES team is a program operated by the Surrey Cares Foundation. Members are Grade 11 and 12 students from Enver Creek, Queen Elizabeth and Kwantlen Park secondary schools.

Located in the heart of Cloverdale

“The youth team is unique because the group members “lead themselves,” said Michael Chang, the group’s adult advisor. During the cold snap, they decided to hold a last-minute coat drive to gather as many coats as possible for people who may need one, he said.

Time travel Imagine a time before department stores and crowded shopping malls, when your favourite treats were baked from scratch. So, just how did our Surrey forebears celebrate Christmas? Bring the family on down to the Surrey Museum Saturday for Pioneer Christmas, a special holiday event filled with carol-signing, craft-making, old films and more, from 1-4 p.m. Sing along with the Surrey Children’s Choir, performing at 2 p.m. or listen to storytime with Sandra at 3 p.m. Kids can help decorate the museum’s Christmas tree with old-fashioned ornaments they can make themselves. Other family-friendly activities include a scavenger hunt, watching black and white holiday films in the theatre, and browsing the museum’s collection of vintage Christmas cards and postcards. Make and learn about traditional takehome crafts, including pomanders – an orange with cloves and cinnamon arranged in patterns – and Christmas stockings. Bring along a donation for the Surrey Food Bank: 41 per cent of its monthly 14,000 recipients are children under 18. Pioneer Christmas is the last day of operations in 2013 for the Surrey Museum, reopening in the new year after a seasonal break. Admission is sponsored by the Friends of the Surrey Museum Society.

S

o, your mom’s an addict, dad’s out of the picture, and you’re a former foster kid who’s just trying to keep it together. Mom keeps trying to sponge off you, now that you’ve got your own place. But with the holidays coming, she’s disappeared again. You’re 19, and you dream of applying for veterinary assistant school, because you love animals, but you can’t really even afford groceries. Now imagine it’s Christmas. That’s the situation facing Tara (not her real name), one of five foster youths whose stories were recently shared in an appeal for donations of grocery and department store gift cards for young people who could really use them. Although the holiday season is a happy time for many, filled with family, traditions, gifts and great food, it’s a time of pain for others, according to the folks at SOS Children’s Village BC. The society, headquartered in Cloverdale, runs the Transition to Adulthood program. It’s for youths aged 16 to 24 who have little support from family. When asked what they wanted for Christmas, “almost all of the kids asked for grocery gift cards,” program coordinator Katie Perkins, a social worker, told the Reporter Monday. “A lot of them are working part time,” she says. “They’re really trying to support themselves.” The society is trying to make this Christ-

mas a little brighter by helping them meet their basic needs. Tara, for instance, needs bath towels for her place, and would love some gift cards for Chapters or Indigo. A gift card for PriceSmart would help with groceries. Matthew, also 19, was living with his emotionally abusive mom until she was evicted in September. Now he’s couch-surfing while attending school full time. He’s hoping to get a job so he can finish his studies. Meanwhile, he desperately needs help getting food. Gift cards from Wal-Mart or Price Smart would really help him out. Or picture Jennifer, a young mom with a two-year-old girl. Like the others, she’s trying to make her own way in the world, without the kind of family life many of us take for granted. She’s only getting a couple of shifts a week at her job – not enough to provide for herself or her daughter. A gift card for Toys R Us is on Jennifer’s wish list. Donations of gift cards or cash will be gratefully accepted. Cash will not be given directly to youth, but will be used to purchase specific items for youth by staff. Perkins says the program was launched about a year and a half ago to address the needs of foster kids making the often difficult and confusing transition to adulthood. Once they reach the age of 19, they’re more or less expected to fend for themselves, even

though it’s practically become the norm for children from stable families to remain at home into their adult years. Perkins and colleague Stephanie Shuttleworth work one-on-one with the youth, helping them with a range of needs, whether it’s hunting down safe and affordable housing, finding a job or applying for valid identification so they can qualify for social assistance. They also provide counselling and therapy. Having the type of support that many of us receive from our family and friends is critical during the first two or three years after youths leave foster care, and can turn their lives around. “Once they turn 19, there are so few supports for them,” she says. Perkins notes statistics continue to show that as many as 70 per cent of the homeless in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside lived in foster care. Gift cards can be mailed or dropped off at their head office in Cloverdale, at 102 5830 176A Street, Surrey, B.C., V3S 4H5 (attention Katie Perkins or Stephanie Shuttleworth). Call 604-574-2964 to arrange pick up instead. Donations of cash are eligible for a charitable tax receipt. It’s something to keep in mind while you’re out making your shopping rounds. Imagine how it would feel, knowing a stranger cares.

Editor’s view

– Jennifer Lang, editor

The Dowie family tradition As Violet cooked and the boys decorated the tree, Frank brought home a stranger for Christmas dinner

I

don’t think that Frank meant to start anything. It just happened. That particular year, 1933, had been very hard for a lot of people and when he got that extra job wallpapering a house in Kitsilano just before Christmas, well, he just couldn’t help himself. The people he had done the job for were so happy that he received some extra cash. He had himself, Violet (my grandmother) and two boys, Francis and Oliver, and he felt that things had been good for him and he wanted to share the wealth (so to speak). On Christmas Eve while Vio-

let was cooking the turkey and the boys were decorating the tree, Frank went out and down to the rail yards in east Vancouver not far from the docks. He found a gentleman who was down on his luck, by the name of Charles, and invited him home to share a meal and some good cheer. After a wonderful meal Frank gave Charles a set of clothes that he could spare and played the piano while the family sang. When Charles came out of the bathroom he was a changed man. It turned out that he was a baker and an opera singer of sorts and he and Violet sang all the old favorite

songs from yesteryear. Because of my grandfather’s generosity, Charles had a job inside of a week at a bakery and he and Frank became good friends. Francis became known as Fran (my dad, Fran Dowie), and Oliver became known as Taller (my uncle). Since then, Christmas Eve has been special in my family. Friends, neighbors, and even strangers have always received a gift of sorts, either baked or hand-made and all given with love and the joy of sharing. CONTRIBUTED PHOTO

BOAZ JOSEPH / BLACK PRESS

Staging a Surrey Christmas Tradition Surrey’s Chloe Choroszweski (above) danced in the Royal City Youth Ballet Company’s annual performance of The Nutcracker at the Surrey Arts Centre this weekend. The final performances were Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m. The company is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. At top left, an open scene of dancers, bottom left, a Clara (Madison Stocker) and the prince (Renato Barbosa) on a sleigh, and the death of the mouse king (Davi Rodrugues).

My Favorite part of Christmas is (from Grade 1 classes)

Jingle Bell walk gives back The Jingle bell Walk is AJ McLellan Elementary School’s annual way of giving to those in need. The school drops off bags in the community a few days before they return and pick up the filled bags. The community has been very supportive of this endeavor and the students look forward to this event every year. This year, they filled over 130 boxes of non-perishable food items for the Surrey Food Bank. It was truly a community endeavor with parents and families donating food items and their time to help students go door to door and collect items.

Kai’s favorite part: My favorite part of Christmas is setting up the Christmas Tree because every year I get new ornaments. My little sister gets one too.

Simone says... My favorite part of Christmas is presents because I like the gifts that I get and sometimes I get a present for my mom and dad.

Elena writes... My favorite part of winter is throwing snowballs and because it is fun and the best.

Christmas is Special to Me Because.... Christmas is special to me because my family and I get to trade presents. I get to sleep in. I get to make a Christmas list for Santa to read. Some time in December my family will get to go to a family gathering. I will get to see my aunts and my uncles, my grandparents and my cousins. It will be the best family gathering I have ever had in my whole entire life. Each year my grandma gets my family and me a Jangula photo for my parents and me as a present. We always stay over for dinner and we have cake for dessert. We always have two cakes because there is about 35 Jangulas at the gathering. That is why Christmas is special to me. Michelle Jangula Div 10 Grade 4

Christmas is special to me because it is the day Jesus is born. It is also special to me because I get to decorate the Christmas tree with my mom and little sister. My mom used to put real candy canes on the Christmas tree so when I was hungry I could just take one off the tree and eat it, but I don’t think we will do that this year, because we have a new puppy named Zuko and he’ll probably eat it and get sick. A few weeks ago we moved most of our furniture and make it look like some kind of Christmas wonderland of some sorts. I also like Christmas because we get cool or super cool presents. Christmas is one of my favourite holidays because of these reasons. Kya Maghirang, Gr 4

each other, we get to have a lot of fun, everyone is smiling, everyone is happy, we get to draw Christmas pictures. We get to eat pancakes, bacon and orange juice for breakfast. That’s what I love about Christmas. Vanessa Eastgate

Christmas is family and happiness. Christmas is when you are with your family and friends. Some people go to a hall or a party. People think it is just about the presents but it is not, its about family and love. Kids opening presents and being so happy that they cry. At school we do a thing called the jingle bell walk. The jingle bell walk is when we donate food to people that do not have as much money like some of us do. Oh, I almost forgot we sing carols too. Merry Christmas. Jocelyn Arana

To me Christmas is about spending time with your family and giving. Some people think it’s all about presents and Santa and all that stuff. But don’t get me wrong. Yeah, it’s nice to get presents and candy. But think of the people who don’t have home, money or food. Do you think they have fun and nice Christmasses? Some families have traditions to watch, a Christmas movie or read a Christmas book. On the other hand, there are families that donate food to the food bank or they go caroling or go to homeless shelters and that’s what Christmas means to me! Brady Barrick

Christmas is special to me because I get presents. My whole family comes over for dinner, we get to decorate for it, we get to watch Christmas movies, we get to read Christmas books, we get to have a big fancy dinner, we get to sing Christmas songs, we get spend time with

(everything is yummy) Okay, it’s food food food! The turkey is adorable. Oh right, and swag — awesome gifts! Hey want about the big one? Me! I was Santa Claus for Halloween! (no lie) Do not forget about the sweet candy. Yes, the candy. Snow! Sledding, snowmen, snowball fights, ahhh snow, love it! You get a nice, fat break from school, Christmas lights are bright on the tree. And on Christmas morning, Yup, today is the day! We wake my mom and dad up. First my mom goes downstairs and makes her coffee. And finally, 2 centuries later, we go downstairs .... Awesome! Yes! Swag! Hooray! Yolo Woo Hoo! Yeah! Oh right, last and Certainly not least, Caroling! Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh, over the Oh Whatever! Anyway, just less than a month, Oh! Can’t wait! Jacob Jacob, Grade 5, Division 7 Christmas Morning — Christmas lights gleaming and Santa’s bells ringing through the night sky. Snow is falling in the cold winter breeze, as children laugh and play inside. They’re waiting, the fireplace burns through the cold winter night. Later on as the children wait for Santa’s. Quiet bells ringing all night till they awake and see their amazing Christmas presents awaiting for them to open the shiny golden wrapping paper and see their smiling faces on the gleaming new toy. Paige

Santa Santa is happy, and when he’s happy he says ho ho ho. Noah

Christmas... hmmm, let’s say, It means FUN! The end. Okay, fine. It means the whole family, it means CELEBRATION. Oh right, and the wait, hints. It’s greasy, it’s edible (anything is edible) it’s edible but yummy

Christmas Memories and more...

Carson, Grade 5, Santa Claus

My Christmas memories are that last year, I sat by the warm, toasty, crackling fire pit that was so warm it was melting down my spine! Since I was two, my family and I created a tradition. It was every year, we would all watch the Polar Express! I would also get a new pair of PJ’s, my favorite ones were a reindeer pair! I always loved waking at 6:45 in the morning to wake up my brother. It’s always a blast opening my stocking and giving gifts! Those are my family memories!

es and countries around the world. Another reason I like Christmas is because you can show family members your Christmas decorations and your Christmas tree. Also I like Christmas because you can show your family members what you’ve learned in school and some other things you’ve learned on your own. Another reason Christmas is special to me is because you can also show new toys you get to your family and play with your new toys with your family. That’s why Christmas is special to me!

Téya Ng Jeevin Bal Grade 3 Peyton, Jesus was born on Christmas Day

Kayla, Grade one, Skating with my Dad on Christmas Day

Christmas is a caring time of the year. Happy and fun to celebrate. Reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh, It’s about family and friends not presents, Spending time with family Time to put up the beautiful decorations “Merry Christmas” they all say Always doing your traditions every year Santa quietly putting presents under the tree.

Andrea Jette Grade 5

Sarah, Grade one (Christmas is special because you get presents from Santa)

Christmas is special to be because it’s a time where you get to be with your family and have lots of presents! Also I like Christmas because in my family we do something called Secret Santa where you get someone a present and you don’t sign it so that person you got the gift for has to guess who got them the gift. It is fun to do Secret Santa but that means you would only get one gift! Another thing is we have pasta or a turkey dinner when we all gather together during Christmas. Christmas is also special to me because I have some family members who live in different places so this is the time I usually see the family members of mine that live in different provinc-

Christmas Carols being sung, Happy memories being made with family, Rudolph leading Santa’s sleigh, Ice and snow everywhere Santa delivering presents all over the world The best time of the year Many presents being opened All the elves making presents So many beautiful decorations being hung Sabrina, Grade 5

On Christmas Eve, my mom, dad and I go to our friends Pam and Simons. They have two daughters. There names are Reese and Cameron. I’ve known them since I was born. When we arrive I can already smell dinner. It smells really good. When we get inside we sit down and they offer my mom and dad a warm coffee. And they offer their girls and I a hot cocoa. After we finish our drinks we set the table for dinner and put the food on the table. After dinner we start baking cookies. Once the cookies are finished we start decorating them. After the decorating we go downstairs and watch a Christmas movie. When it is finished, we get to open one present. The present is traditionally pajamas, slippers or some kind of small toy. After we open our presents it is time for us to go home. When we get home I get to open one

family present. After I open my present I put out the milk and cookies and go to bed. When I wake up in the morning I run into my parent’s room and jump on their bed until they wake up. Once they wake up I have to wait until they are ready to go downstairs. When we go downstairs I see all the presents under the tree. First I dig into my stocking and traditionally I find a stuffy on the top so I don’t see all the stuff inside. When I pull the stuffy out of the stocking I see all the candy and headbands and ponytails. Once the stockings are empty, we open all of our presents. After all the presents are open I thank my parents and phone all my family to say thank you. And that is Christmas in my family . Selina Reid, Grade 5

Hmmm, let me think. What does Christmas mean to me? Ah ha! I’ve got it. You’re going to love this piece of writing! Christmas to me is to be with my family and friends, to give presents to people in my neighbourhood, family and friends. Also to give to the less fortunate. I don’t just think you should do it to prove to someone, you should do it and be proud of yourself for doing that deed. It’s also about the kids sleeping and waiting for sleeping and waiting for Santa Claus to come sliding chimney with the presents lying in his sack waiting to be put under the Christmas tree and for the kids to unwrap them. Then the next morning I can see the kids rushing down the stairs so fast to see the presents lying under the beautiful red and gold Christmas tree. Why? I think this is meaningful because these are the memories we carry with us through our life, the pictures, albums, videos and special notes from our loved ones. Also the traditions we carry every year We only have Christmas once a year. We should treasure it! Samah Khan, Grade 5 Jacob, Grade 5, Division 7

Christmas, Eid, and other Traditions

The Christmas Cheer Christmas is here! Have all the fun you can. Reindeer are flying It’s that time of year Santa is in his sleigh. To bring holiday cheer Merry Christmas to all And if you didn’t know Santa is here!

Liam Kevin Mcadams Grade 5

Our Christmas Tree When my family goes to a farm to get a Christmas tree, we cut the tree that we pick. Then we put the tree on top of our car. When we bring our tree home and put it in a treestand. And then we decorate it. The decorations shines and are all different colors. The tree smells like Christmas. I can’t wait for Christmas. Gwyn

Christmas Christmas means, Jesus’s birthday rising up from the sunset. Turning on the fireplace as we look in our stockings to see what we get. Handing out gifts to our dearest family members. Donated gifts everywhere around the world. To help the children who need food and may be treated like slaves. Decorating the Christmas tree to make it look like a festival. Taking sips of hot chocolate from our snowman mugs. Waking up to the smell of bacon, eggs, pancakes, orange juice. Making pancakes for the family. It’s always fun. Opening up the most delightful gifts! Christmas is my favorite holiday. Why? Because, I spend more time with my loving family. Julia Fischer, Grade 5 Julia Fischer, Grade 5

Eid Eid is the time of year when all my family gets together. To a lot of people Eid is the time of the year to get money and presents. But to me, well, it is getting money and praying, being thankful for everything we have and meeting my family that I have not seen in a while. Every year my family gets a sheep and eats it and it’s delicious! We always have an Eid party so all my family gets together. Since a lot of my cousins come, we play soccer or cricket in my huge front lawn. After dinner we have dessert and we can have anything we want. There are two Eid’s, Eidal-fit and Eid-al-Adha.

Christmas — it means gathering up with my family around the fire as the hot air kisses our cheeks. It means giggling, tiptoeing downstairs waiting for your parents to wake. It means playing with your cousins, brother or sister. It means putting the tree up or getting a real one. Putting up the lights and decorations. It means clearing your driveway of snow when the cold misty air nips at your nose. It means going outside and building a snowfort or have a snowball fight with a friend or sibling or making snow angels as the cold snow covers you like a blanket like it’s trying to trap you or if you’re not an outside person, staying inside near the warm toasty fire and reading or drinking hot chocolate or doing both at the same time. It means seeing the smiles on your sigling’s faces when they open their presents. What Christmas means to me is giving, caring, loving and happiness. I wouldn’t want to spend a minute of it wothout my family. Sam Brown, Grade 5 I go to my Grandma’s at Christmas. My grandma gives me presents. Cohan

Christmas For Christmas, my family and I are going to get a real tree for the first time. Then we are going to have a party where we have my three brothers, Kaiden, Dayton and Jordan. Then my mom and aunts come to dinner and decorate the tree. We will have all sorts of food and treats. YUMMY. I can’t wait until this happens. I hope it comes soon so I can eat some tasty stuff. I love Christmas!

Well, first things first, it’s about Jesus’ birthday, but I’m not a believer in Jesus and I just celebrate it because I just celebrate it. Most kids celebrate Christmas no doubt about it because, well, it’s Christmas. People just say it’s not about the presents and it’s about spending time with your family even though on the inside they just want presents. Like just think about it, if there were no presents really, would anybody even like Christmas? There would be that one kid that’s like “I still love Christmas even though they would really be sad on the inside.Well let’s start with money. You can get anything pretty much with it, like a 30 lb steak and a king crab with 7 lbs of butter sauce, oh yeah. And presents, hmm. Well, you can get anything at a store that’s umm, well anything if you just whine enough - mom mom mom! Mom! Okay. I will get you an X-Box 1.

Ella, Gr 5

To me, Christmas means jingle bells and green pine trees in your living room. Christmas is jumping into snow’s freezing cold arms that chill you to the bone. Hot chocolate with marshmallows in the color of the rainbow, that my mom bought for me. Snowball fights with my brother and friends that come from down the road. Mini Christmas trees in my room that is decked out in mini everything, from Christmas lights to candy canes made of plastic. I love deck the halls in school because you can make whatever you want that is Christmas related but on the other hand anything craft related I am a part of, trust me! My favorite part of Christmas shopping is donated to the people in need.

My Christmas

ments and lights all over it. I like getting all of the new presents that are mine. I also buy presents for my dad, mom and brother. I have a very fun Christmas morning and night. It is fun looking at all the different colours everywhere on the house. It is really fun decorating everything on the house. I like Christmas because it is a time that you get together with your family. You can do a lot and a lot of fun stuff on Christmas day that is really fun. One year I played hockey in the snow on sleds. Lucas Corkish, Grade 3

Christmas is an awesome holiday. If you don’t believe me, listen to this story. The Christmas Story Christmas is an awesome holiday. Where you get awesome gift. Oh and you get to stay home from school. Have you heard of Santa? He wears a red hat and a red coat. Not trying to be rude, but he’s chubby. Santa comes every year and gives you cool stuff. Like racecars and snowboards. Back to the real world. So do you believe me now? Yes, great. Because I was running out of ideas.

Christmas is a time to show your love to people by giving them a present they will cherish and love forever. It’s a month of red, green, yellow, and blue lights that flicker in the dark. Christmas is time to write over flowing lists of all the toys that should be toppling out of the bottom of your tree on Christmas morning. I always love giving people presents as much as receiving, seeing their faces light up feels like I just made one more person’s day. In my school choir we go to senior homes and sing Christmas songs. In my guide group we made cards for the senior homes. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I just love to decorate and it’s something my whole family get to do together. It means a lot to do all these things and make people happy. I try my best to make everyone I know have the best Christmas ever!

The Christmas Tale

Andrea Jette Grade 5 Christmas is special to me because it is a day that makes everyone happy. Christmas is when Santa brings you presents and stuff for your stockings. Christmas is fun. Sometimes it will snow on Christmas then you can go sledding downhill. I like to decorate my house with Christmas lights and I like to decorate the Christmas tree with orna-

and making cookies for Santa. I stay up on Christmas night because I’m really excited to wake up and see presents under the Christmas tree and to see the cookies have been eating. My mom videotapes me, Hannah and Hailey opening our presents. It’s so much fun. My dad said we will get our Christmas tree December the first. We get our Christmas tree from Rona. My dad and me get to pick out the Christmas tree. We also go to our grandma’s house and meet our cousins there. We also get some presents. We also go to our other grandparent’s hosue. We eat crepes there. I love my grandma’s crepes. Ava Graham, Grade 3

Serena, Grade 2

Snow Fighting I like snow fighting because it is fun because you can snowballs and make a wall. You can even make snow angels. You can even make a snowman! Nyall Julia Fischer, Grade 5 The sky is blue, the clouds are here. Soon you will see the snow appear You celebrate Christmas at home. While you wear Santa hats that look like cones. Waiting for Christmas presents is intense. So much that all I can do is dance! Christmas lights twinkling bright. They sparkle so pretty in the night! Merry Christmas to all Enjoy shopping at the mall! Izaiah C, Grade 5

Christmas is Special to Me Christmas is special to me because all my family members get to come to my house and I get to play Chrismtas songs on the piano. For dinner we eat turkey that my mom makes. The special thing about Christmas is it’s Jesus birthday. I also like getting presents and decorating the Christmas tree

It looks a lot like Christmas! Surprises waiting to be opened. A lot of children waiting for Santa. Noel, signs hanging over the fireplace. Trees being decorated for Christmas. Antlers leading the way! Ciara S

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyre’ni-us was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house and lineage of David,) to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

ICBC CLAIMS & GENERAL PRACTICE 5690 - 176A Street, Surrey

I’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit myself through a number of activities: the Surrey Tree Lighting, Sources Season of Trees at Fraser Downs, Surrey’s Santa Parade of Lights, the Surrey Chamber of Commerce Christmas Luncheon, the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Kickoff (and of course visits to local merchants in pursuit of the perfect gift for members of my family).

And of course it will come as no surprise to chamber members but we all have a role to play in supporting the small businesses that support our community. Whether you buy jewelry from a local designer, purchase locally made baked goods or visit our local craft brewery - doing your Christmas shopping and celebrating here in Cloverdale pays dividends for our community at large.

Former MLA for 12 years DaveSHayer

Looking out onto the row of holiday decorated storefronts, it is clear the Christmas season is in full swing here in SurreyCloverdale.

Events such as these are a great way for small businesses here in Cloverdale to remind the public they do much more for a community than sell goods and services. Being involved in the community helps make all of us stronger and truly is a cause worthy of support.

As 2013 winds down we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our hundreds of volunteers who work tirelessly to keep our Chamber strong. We lost a great friend, advocate and just a great man in Bill Reid this year and we look forward to honoring his legacy for many years to come. Our Chamber is unique in its partnership with the Cloverdale BIA and huge thank you and kudos go out to that great organization for another fantastic year. 2014 is going to set new records for this Chamber. We have an aggressive goal to increase our membership while also improving the value that our members get for their annual fees. We are planning two new events and will continue to partner on the many great events that Cloverdale has to offer. If you are not yet a member of our organization you are missing out on great savings on benefits packages, processing fees as well as the best networking events in town. We are your voice for business and are a great viaduct to City Hall for any business concerns. Join us for our next luncheon and find out why we are “the center of the universe - as our dear friend Bill would say.” Brian Young, President
