Millet Winter Carnival

This past week end residents of Millet got to go out and enjoy the break in the cold weather and help make this Christmas a little merrier for those who may be struggling this time of year.  For the first time in 10 years, The Millet Winter Carnival was held on December 8 at the Millet Agiplex. The event was a joint effort of The Town of Millet, Recreation, Tourism and the New Edge Skating Club. Admission was a donation to the Millet Food Bank.
       Although the sleigh rides were cancelled, the bonfire was still roaring and toasty outside. Inside The New Edge Skating Club entertained the crowds with a skating program. Upstairs hotdogs and hot chocolate were for sale with the proceeds also going to the Millet Food Bank. 
       Rounding out the activities were the Christmas tree decorating and gingerbread house competition, along with the cookie decorating. The trees were decorated with non-perishable food items, toys and clothing for donation to Wetaskiwin & District Victim Services, Millet Food Bank, and The Millet Lions.
       Prizes were awarded to the top 4 entries in the Christmas tree and gingerbread house competition and everyone was a winner in the cookie decoration with all children who participated receiving a prize. The prizes for the top 4 Christmas trees were awarded to: 1st) Millet Rec & Ag. Society 2nd) Red Hat Society 3rd) Millet Ministerial and 4th) Millet Communities in Bloom. In the gingerbread house competition 1st) Ann Nash 2nd) Kristien Lorenson 3rd) Tyler Love and Geraldine LeBlanc and 4th) Lauren Barnes, Kolby, Dominic, Kayla and Dakota Jaffray.
       The Millet Lions provides Christmas Hampers for those who need a little help during the Christmas season. The hampers provide Christmas dinner and presents. Boxes for donations of gifts, non-perishable food items and cash are at local businesses and Millet Town Office. When making gift donations for children please consider an item suitable for a teen ager as they are often in short supply.
