tís time to grab your mittens and invite all of your family and friends to lace up their skates. Prospera Credit Unionís annual Skate Party is back and itís going to be a Winter Wonderland of fun. The date is December 7, and the place to be is the Prospera Centre in Chilliwack (located at 45323 Hodgins Ave).  


The entire community is invited to share in an exciting afternoon of free entertainment and an opportunity for families, friends and neighbours to come together and share the warmth of the holiday season. The skate party runs from noon to 3:00 p.m.


The festivities include free admission for ice skating (skate rentals are $4.00), a complimentary keepsake photo taken in our holiday photo booth and treats such as candy canes, home-made goodies and hot chocolate (invitations to the event have been printed on the side of hot chocolate packets and distributed to Prospera branches throughout the Fraser Valley).


Bring a Food Donation and Receive a Prize

Prospera Credit Unionís community partner for the Skate Party is the Salvation Army and they will be on hand with their truck and kettle to receive donations. Those bringing a food donation for the local food bank will receive a ticket to choose a prize from Prosperaís prize tree. Every donation is appreciated as it helps to make the holidays a little brighter for everyone in our community.
