The West Kootenays Francophone Association (AFKO) will hold its annual Christmas dinner on Saturday. The event takes place Dec. 8 at 5 p.m. at Tarry’s Hall in Thrums.

Members of the association, as well as locals are invited to attend.

Special guest Santa Claus and his helpers will be there to distribute gifts while the parents can sip on a good glass of wine. Our buffet theme is about traditional recipes from Quebec, such as meat pies, pork stew, Quebec style turkey, and so much more.

Preparations for this event begin in early fall when the volunteers from AFKO and from the community start crafting decorations for the party.

They get together to create the menu and cook this wonderful food. “We are always surprised to see the large francophone community of the Kootenays; they are so creative and alive’’ says Joelle and Judith, students in the French immersion program at LVR Secondary School and volunteers at the AFKO.

The costs to attend this amazing party are $48/family, $20/person (13+), 8$/person (6 to 12 years old) and free for children aged 6 and under. The costs for members of the AFKO will be $38/family, and $16/person (13 and +), 8$ (6 to 12 years old) and free for children aged 6 and under. Join them to celebrate Christmas, French Style. Doors open at 5pm, dinner starts at 6pm and Santa will visit at 7pm.
