Harper Mt. In our backyard

I

t’s the perfect getaway for Kamloops families looking for some winter fun. The easy 25-minute drive from downtown Kamloops is paved almost the whole way and there is more free parking than ever. Harper Mountain has 1,400 vertical feet of ski and snowboard terrain spread over 400 acres. The Terrain Park includes a great variety of rails and jumps, and it’s open for night riding two nights a week. Rivalling the skiing is the Snow Town Tube Park, complete with a power lift and a bonfire for social gatherings. It’s a great place to meet people over a hot dog or marshmallow roast. The rustic, log Day Lodge has two

Daily News Cheer Fund

T

his is the 11th year for The Daily News Christmas Cheer Fund and it has become an exciting example of the Christmas spirit. Over the last 10 years, the Christmas Cheer Fund has taken in $476,877.68, all of it donated by readers and friends. Then The Daily News spread it among Kamloops charities. Last year, you handed over $82,676.00 and,

because The Daily News covers all costs associated with the fund, every penny of it was passed on to charitable groups. Each year, charities apply for consideration to be beneficiaries of the Cheer Fund. Those applications are submitted to our six-person selection committee, which has already made its selections for 2012. This year’s beneficiaries of your Christmas Cheer Fund will be:

• Pregnancy Care of Kamloops; • Kamloops Food Bank; • Marjorie WilloughbySnowden Memorial Hospice Home; • New Life Mission; • YMCA-YWCA Y Women’s Emergency Shelter. Drop off donations to The Daily News, 393 Seymour St., or call 250-372-2331 for more information. And a very, merry Christmas to you!

BC Wildlife Park Wildlights

T

his is the 15th year for the B.C. Wildlife Park’s annual Wildlights celebration and it just keeps getting more popular with each passing year. The spectacular laser light show that was introduced last year was a crowd favourite but it’s only one of many attractions and activities. Visitors this year will see more than 600,000 lights and 360 rope-light sculptures. Kids and adults enjoy the Wildlife Challenge in the bigger and better Giant Maze. And no visit to the B.C. Wildlife Park is complete without a ride around the park on the Wildlife Express miniature train, all decked out for Christmas.

Peter Olsen caught this scene of the Wildlife Express at the B.C. Wildlife Park’s Wildlights exhibit.

This year’s Wildlights Festival runs from December 14, 2012, to January 6, 2013. The park is open 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily (closed on Christmas Day). Adults, $11; Seniors, $9; Children two and under are free, ages 3 to 17, $7.

Kamloops Food Bank

K

amloops Food Bank not only works to help the hungry. It also provides valuable opportunities for volunteer workers. For some of those, it’s a form of job training. For all volunteers, it’s a way to give back to the community. The food bank gives its volunteers the chance to use their skills and talents, as well as learn new ones with hands-on practice. Volunteers learn new skills, gain self confidence,

discover their strengths and talents, and expand their social circle. Volunteering goes beyond a career search. It’s a way to give a part of yourself to help others. Your time, energy, skills and ideas all come into play. Some of the opportunities at the Kamloops Food Bank include: • Preparing Food Hampers • Serving Clients (9 a.m. to noon) • Sorting Food

• Special Events • Kitchen Assistance (Cooking lunches for volunteers) • Grounds Keeping. There is always more to do so volunteers are always welcome. This Christmas, as always, share some food. Food donation boxes are at: Real Canadian Superstore; Extra Foods; Save On Foods; both Safeways; Costco; all Coopers; London Drugs and Canada Post outlets.

Big Brothers You’re the gift & Big Sisters

T

he best Christmas present you could possibly give this year may not be something that sits under the tree. It might be you — you as a role model and friend to a young person who would welcome your input and enrich your life as you enrich his or hers. The men and women who serve as mentors teach by example the value of caring for others and giving back. They extol the riches of staying in school and getting the education that opens doors in the future. To a discouraged or lonely child, school might be a struggle. Your input can affect

his or her entire life for the better. Mentors also show what having respect for family, peers and community means and how it builds bridges to friendships, opportunities and an exciting adult life. Even if you are not able to donate time and energy, you can still have the satisfaction of contributing to a young person’s social and personal development by making a financial gift. Your donations can provide a Christmas food hamper to be delivered on your behalf to needy families involved with Big Brothers and Sisters. To learn more, call 250-374-6134.

ALPINE VISIT DECEMBER 15, 3PM–7PM

Santa’s coming to Sun Peaks! Come and get your last-minute gift requests in with Santa before the big day! Enjoy carolers, watch elves working on toys, take part in the snowman making competition, and visit any of our onsite vendors selling a variety of wares. You’ll also have the opportunity to sample some of our winter activities right in the heart of the village; all this and more!
