The call went out earlier this week – the community Christmas dinner in Nyssa was short of help and turkeys.
The Enterprise shared word from organizer Lori Rae that she might have to cancel the dinner. We published the story on our website and shared it on our social media.
Not long after, Lori’s phone logged call after call. Enough people stepped up that the meal on Christmas Day is going ahead.
At the Enterprise, this is part of our mission – to help the community. For us, there was no better gift this season than the community rallying behind this event.
And don’t forget that there’s a Christmas Day community dinner in Vale too. The Vale Feast Group will serve from noon to 2 p.m. at Vale Christian Church, 450 A St. West.
Speaking of Vale, Bob Bement made good on his promise to do a downtown flyover on his birthday. We’re not sure how he managed this trick, but the fog bank holding much of the county hostage ended just outside Vale on Wednesday. That gave the Vale Viking alum clear skies for his passes over downtown to celebrate his 89th birthday.

HE’S LOOKING FOR A HOME – YOURS, MAYBE?
Mouse, 10 years old, is a gentle giant that has so much love to share, he wants to find his loving forever home to live out his life!
He’s such a great kitty, he’s over curtain climbing but is still very playful and silly.
He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and tested negative for FeLV & FIV. He is an indoor cat only for safety and no declawing is allowed.
During the month of December we have reduced our adoption fee for our bonded pairs. Kittens are $100 for two fur babies and adults over a year have an adoption fee of $60 for two . Our adoption fee for the month has also been reduced to $40 for cats 1 year and over to help find our fantastic felines their loving forever families. All of the kitties go home with a “welcome home” gift of a litter box, poop scooper, two dishes and a toy.
We want the very best for our rescue kitties and what’s better than finding their loving families?? Let’s get these kitties home for the holidays!!
Adoption event: Every Saturday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. or by appointment at the Constance McCullough House, 84 N.W. 2nd St., Ontario.
