Haven volunteers are ready for the big day.

Haven a great evening for all

Haven provides a welcoming atmosphere for people of all ages, backgrounds, and incomes so they can enjoy a hot turkey dinner.

It’s literally a haven for those who don’t have anywhere to go on the night before Christmas.

So if you need a place to go, the odds are you’ll have a pretty good time at the  Christmas Haven that takes place at the Arts Centre Theatre on Christmas Eve.

Back again at the event in the downtown is Sharone Malone from the Emerald Pig theatre group. She will do face painting.

“Sharno is always such a big hit, the adults sometimes seem even more excited than the kids,” organizer Coun. Corisa Bell said in a release.

Two bands, Shades of Green and Generations, will also be there, as well as local talent Julie Cutting.

The Greystone Knitting Circle will also be bringing warm winter clothes that members have been making.

For anyone who has transportation challenges, the HandyDART system says it’s ready and able to get people to the Christmas Haven. Disabled customers ride for free while their companions will have to pay $2.75.

The Haven provides a welcoming atmosphere for people of all ages, backgrounds, and incomes so they can enjoy a hot turkey dinner, local Christmas entertainment, children’s activities, and a special gift from Santa.

It will be held on Dec. 24, from 6-9 p.m., at the ACT. It is a free event, and no registration is required.
