The Historic BC Cafe is hosting several fun events including Winter Survivor which starts at 7 p.m. People can sign up their teams of four which must have two females and two males, during business hours and the team entry fee is 8 non-perishable food items for the local food bank. At 6:15 p.m. they are also hosting “Snowball Dodgeball”. Registration for this event will be throughout the day and the entry fee is 2 non-perishable items. There will be lots of prizes for both events.

Also on Dec. 14, there will be a bake sale at the New Hazelton Lions Hall from noon until 7 p.m.  There will be baked goods, coffee, gifts and other items for people to enjoy or purchase.

While downtown in the Hazeltons for the festivities, people are invited to drop by the Misty River’s Art Gallery at the Old Riverboat where Roy Henry Vickers’ art and calendars are on sale, the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition above the Law offices where the new book, “The Sacred Headwaters” by Wade Davis is on sale along with an assortment of other gifts such as the Ali Howard “Awakening the Skeena” DVD. Also, local artist Leah Pipe is displaying her talents at Mercedes Beans and Model Teas for the rest of the month.
