Nollaig Shona Duit – Happy Christmas

Well the Christmas season is truly upon us. You can drive down any street and see that people already have their trees up and decorated as I am sure some of you do too. Christmas is a wonderful time of year because it brings out the best in people. Many of us have traditions of contributing to our favorite charity or volunteering our time to help others. It is a time of family, friends and community. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I wish the spirit of Christmas would last all year long.

To build on this we are asking people to bring a “Tin for the Bin” (non-perishable) or monetary donations to the Carol Night on December 15th doors open at 6:30. The items and any money collected will all be donated to Winnipeg Harvest. Once again, we are featuring the wonderful Irish Myst Choir and a few surprise guests to lead us in a wonderful night of song. Come out and sing a few songs and meet up with old friends or even better make a few new ones.

On behalf of the IAM Board of Directors, we wish you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous, healthy New Year. We want to leave you with this Irish Christmas Blessing:

During the coming Christmas Season

May you be blessed with the spirit of the season

Which is peace

The gladness of the season

Which is hope

And the heart of the season

Which is love
