RCMP brighten Cowichan seniors’ holidays with carolling call

They use cruisers instead of a one-horse sleigh and sirens instead of silver bells, but North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment was still able to deliver holiday cheer to local nursing homes.

On Tuesday, Dec. 11, police officers and employees from the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP attended four nursing homes in Chemainus and Duncan during the detachment’s annual Christmas carolling event. Police sang carols and visited with residents at each centre. Uniformed officers wore the traditional (and conveniently festive) red serge while serenading residents with Christmas classics.

“This event is one that staff and police look forward to every year,” says North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment commander Chris Bear. “We enjoy the opportunity to bring some holiday spirit to the elders in our community.”
