The gymnasium at West Boundary Elementary School was packed as parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, friends and neighbours came to the 2013 Christmas Concert.

The theme was stories of past Christmases in the Boundary, the Herdman family performed Little Drummer Boy.

Stories were provided by Pat Pownall, Art Harfman, tapes from interviews local historical biographer Pownall has done with pioneers and by children reading stories of their grandparents. Harfman reminded everyone that the important thing about gifting is not the size or cost of the gift but the acknowledgment that you love somebody.

The Rock Creek Women’s institute each year raffles a quilt at the fall fair with some of the proceeds going to the community and the school.

This year the quilt raffle enabled the WI to give $200 to Boundary Hospice and the balance of $685.88 going to WBES PAC for the food program.

As they do each year the students and staff of WBES gathered on the stage at the end of the concert to lead everyone in a round of We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
