Join the Evergreen Club for their annual festive event Dec. 6.

It will be a great opportunity to gather with friends (and make some new ones) and have a wonderful evening out.  A ‘no host’ bar starts at 5 p.m. followed by a savoury turkey dinner catered by Custom Gourmet Catering at 6 p.m.

A group of talented retired music teachers called A Time for Uke will then play Christmas music with their ukuleles. “You have to hear them to believe how great a sound the little ukulele can make!” says organizer Marlene Lally.

Later, Gord Kruger and the Amigos will have everyone up on the dance floor. If you have heard the Amigos before you know you will enjoy some great dancing music.

Early-bird tickets are cheaper before Nov. 29. Tickets are available through Courtenay Recreation at the Florence Filberg Centre office (250-338-1000).
