A holiday season potpourri...

If you want to hear some Christmas music this year you are in luck. The Blaine high school and middle school are doing their part to make this holiday season a musical one.
The high school swing choir is singing at Stafholt Good Samaritan Center on December 20 at 10:45 a.m. and the senior center at 11:45 a.m. They are also singing at the Holiday Port Festival on December 9 at 4 p.m.; at 4:30 the Blaine Christmas brass will play. The jazz band will play at the Leopold Retirement Center on December 12 at 7 p.m. along with the swing choir.
For something a little closer to home on December 17 there will be a high school community Christmas concert and on December 19 the middle school will have their concert. Both of these concerts will be held in the Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m.

The Blaine Boys & Girls Club’s Torch Club wants to help out this holiday season. They are accepting donations of unopened toys for children of all ages. Donations can be dropped off at the Blaine Boys & Girls Club Monday through Friday anytime between 3 and 7 p.m. from December 5 until December 20. For more information, contact Kristin Frady at 332-3008.

Boat owners on both sides of the border are wrapping masts with tinsel and stringing lights on the stays, making their vessels into floating Christmas ornaments for the annual holiday parade from Blaine to White Rock.
This year’s cross-border lighted flotilla will start off the White Rock pier at 5 p.m. on December 8. The boats will then make their way to Blaine. “We hope to go into Drayton Harbor this year,” said Semiahmoo Yacht Club commodore Hoyt Hatfield. He expects two dozen boats will participate.
“Anyone who’d like to join us is welcome,” Hatfield said, adding interested boaters could just join. “You’ll see the boats when you get to White Rock.”
