Lions Christmas House roars to life

The Lions Christmas House is inviting the communities around Cowichan Lake to come for a visit with Santa Clause this week.

The Lions Christmas House is inviting the communities around Cowichan Lake to come for a visit with Santa Clause this week.

Beginning of Dec. 3, the Lions Christmas House will run until Dec. 11 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Nita Powell is a Lions member who has played a part in helping organize the Christmas House. Powell stressed that Lions fundraising events like the Lions Christmas Craft Fair have been slightly under-supported lately and encourages the community to come visit the Christmas House.

“We haven’t been able to do very much for charity lately. We only have six to eight active members right now,” said Powell.

She anticipates the Christmas House will raise several hundred dollars for hockey and figure skating in the community.

“We’re a small group and we try our darndest to give to the town as much as we can,” she added.

Admission is by donation and proceeds are going towards Lake Cowichan Minor Hockey and Figure Skating.

“For this, it’s just by donation. They can give anywhere from a dollar to whatever. Then it goes to this and will probably end up with our charity fund,” said Powell.

The Lions Christmas House is located at the Pilkington residence at 318 South Shore Road across from the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena.

For more information phone 749-5493.
