Christmas carols for the community

Choirs from all around Agassiz, Harrison and Rosedale gathered together last Thursday for the annual Community Christmas Concert.

The choirs included a mix of large and small choirs, accompanied by the Chilliwack Community Band led by conductor Dale Warr.

The Agassiz Agricultural Hall was filled to capacity with standing room only, leading to a generous amount of donations being given during the offering.

The annual event is a fundraiser for Agassiz Community Services, and cash and food donations were being collected on their behalf.

The event was emceed by Allan Roth and included an opening prayer by Pastor John Koster and benediction by Pastor Tom Grey.
