Pair of variety shows aim to help our local food bank

Start the holiday season off with a pair of old fashioned Christmas variety shows for the whole family

Start the holiday season off with a pair of old fashioned Christmas variety shows for the whole family featuring terrific local valley talent.

The Brenda’s Brats group is helping present two different shows.

First, there’s the Cobble Hill Christmas Variety Show, co-presented by the Cobble Hill Farmers Institute, on Sunday, Nov. 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Cobble Hill Hall and then there’s the Mill Bay Christmas Variety Show scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 6, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Mill Bay Community League Hall (beside Kerry Park Recreation Centre).

Entry is by donation of food or cash to the local food bank.

So, why not take the families and enjoy performances by Melissa Flint, the Huckleberry Duo, the Killam Sisters, Lesley Ridenour, Brenda’s Brats, Ken Hiles and many more?

And kids, watch out for a special appearance by The Grinch.

Help the food bank this time of year and bring the family to be entertained.

Doors open at 6 p.m., so come one, come all to both events.
