The 1st Annual Santa Parade
It was Fraser Lakes first Christmas Light Parade
and it was bright and colourful and enjoyed by
everyone who took advantage of the route and
watched from the warmth of their living room.
The temperature was cold but the spirit was not.
The parade was a happy first for Fire Chief Joe
Pacheco who spearheaded the event within days of
his return to the post as Fire Chief. Thumbs up to
everyone who took part .

In life there are teachings that come without guidelines. We

Endako This & That by Audrey Read

The community was saddened by the death of Jim Brooks on November 29, 2016. Jim has lived in the area for many years and made many friends
who will morn him. RIP in peace Jim.

The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change and the realist adjusts the sails!

Did you notice along about December 1st for just a very few minutes for the first two days there was that strange shinny ball way up in the
sky? Then the bright light lasted for, WOW nearly twenty minutes on the third and by golly the fourth really outdid itself...It is known as the
SUN! It shone so brightly I could hardly believe it! Hadn't seen it for so darn long I almost had to call the neighbours to see what it was!

The Endako Hall Association held their A.G.M. with the following members being elected: President: Kiona Armatage, Vice Predisent: Dave
Johnson, Treasurer: Lorraine Turnbull, Secretary: Elka Webber. Directore: Sylvia Litke, Krysten Mielty, Donna Eisert, Richard Cannon,Ruth
Pfister. Fund Raiser: Audrey Read. Plans for a children's party for Dec. 18 are well underway as well as a coffee house being planned in the
near future. The next meeting is January 16, 2017, hope to see you there. We welcomed the Endako Snowmobile Club to become part of our
society, welcome folks! Should get some new energy and ideas in the outfit and start having some events taking place again!

Phyllis Horner and I went to the Fraser Lake Christmas dinner for seniors at the Legion. What a lovely meal, sing-a-long and gifts. Meeting many
people we haven't seen for awhile was very enjoyable too. Merry Christmas one and all!

Happy Birthday to Shannon Turnbull on reaching a "milestone birthday!" And...you were shocked about your "surprise party" weren't you! LOL!
Now you know how it feels! Imagine FIFTY years young, I don't know how in thunder my kids got so darn old? I'd better check into that I think,
maybe someone is changing the dates on their birth certificates? LOL My little great grand daughter Paisley also celebrated her birthday at the
same party, her first, how time flies when we are having fun aye! What a lovely party. As usual your cake decorating was out of this world Isabell!
And the "country decorations" were..WOW! Wonderful job Ashlee!

By gingo this cold weather sure brings a fella to attention when you step outside doesn't it! Glad I got most of my outdoor lights up when it was
still reasonably warm!

Our congratulations to Kiona Armatage and Lyle Litke on the birth of their son, Ryley Mark Stanley Litke who presented himself on October 6,
2016 weighing in at seven pounds fourteen ounces and just shy of twenty inches long. A little brother for Cameron and also a first grandchild to
Mark & Darlene Armatage as well as (old hands) grand parents Neil & Sylvia Litke. Congratulations to all!

The grads brought my wood for me, hard working bunch of kids....AND parents! They'd like to thank Fraser Lake Sawmills and the various con-
tractors who kindly donated truck loads of logs for them to cut up and deliver, great community spirit. Thank you!

Went to P.G. the other day, got my glasses lined up again, then I went to Burns Lake and was trying on some sweaters, put my glasses on the
chair in the dressing room....and...promptly SAT ON THEM!... Sometimes I do the CRAZIEST things! LOL Boy I tell you, "Life in the fast lane
sure can be exciting can't it!"

Our sincere condolences to the Serle family. Bill passes away October 16 after a lengthly illness. Rest in peace Bill, your family and friends are
going to miss you.

A very Happy Birthday to Connie Rye...A lovely cake was served at Autumn Services with many friends in attendance. I also hear the Red Hat
gals treated you to a great meal too. (Gordon & I were going to crash that party but it was too darn cold!) Hope the year ahead is a wonderful one
for you in every way, may you be blessed with good health all year long.

Did you know that the secret to having it all....IS TO BELIEVE YOU DO! Wishing each and everyone of you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and
the great 2017.

10th Annual Seniors Christmas Party
For ten years there has been a full course sit-down
Christmas dinner served at the Legion. The group who
organize it have managed to keep it sustainable thanks to
community support and ticket donations received at the
door.
This year 136 seniors (over 65) once again filled the
room to capacity and enjoyed a wonderful meal pre-
pared by the Legion kitchen staff and volunteers. Cathy
Harder, Legion president was there merely to coordi-
nate the event that appeared to be carried out seamless-
ly with cooks slicing, volunteers pouring, and elves serv-
ing. Organizer Darlene Thiessen is instrumental in put-
ting the event on and from year to year as the senior
numbers grow and the coordinator numbers dwindle, it
becomes a bigger task. While she doesnt begrudge the
work involved, she recognizes the event has almost out-
grown the building. Its so important for the seniors.
This is the one event they hate to miss. This year, more
turkeys were ordered, and once all the help staff had
eaten, about 160 meals were served.
