Cultus Lake Christmas – Supporting the Community

This blog post was developed in response to a request from the Cultus Lake Park Community Events and Engagement Committee – which is made up of community volunteers.

Cultus Lake Christmas is a highly popular December holiday season event put on by the Community Events and Engagement Committee. The volunteers work for hundreds of hours in planning this event – taking time away from friends, family and their busy lives to contribute to the strong sense of community at Cultus Lake Park. This is a family-friendly event that grows in popularity (and fun!) each year.

The Cultus Lake Christmas event received support again this year from Electoral Area H, Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD).

Electoral Area H is part of the Fraser Valley Regional District and was established in 2014. It includes Cultus Lake North and Cultus Lake South (Columbia Valley and Lindell Beach areas).

There are eight Electoral Areas within the Fraser Valley Regional District and each is governed by one Electoral Area Director. Taryn Dixon is the Director for Area H. There are also six municipalities and each one has representatives who sit on the FVRD Board. Within the FVRD area, there are 30 First Nations, four Tribal Councils and four Treaty Associations. Soowahlie First Nation is within Area H and Area H is thankful for their ongoing help and support.

Ms. Dixon explains that they are committed to providing support to a variety of community-based initiatives throughout Area H. This includes Canada Day in Columbia Valley, Cultus Lake Day, Cultus Lake Christmas, Art on the Farm and many others. Ms. Dixon said: “These events all provide an opportunity for Area H to show off its bounty and beauty. They bring the community together and help all of us get to know each other and support each other. Working together for the common good is always a blessing to our Area.”

When asked what she likes best about Cultus Lake Christmas, Ms. Dixon replied: “I love the lights, the bonfire, seeing the little ones visiting Santa Claus, and just feeling the joy and anticipation that young and old alike have for the season.” She acknowledged the organizing committee for their continued work and effort in putting on such a wonderful event. She added: “I know it takes time from so many volunteers, but the result is a first-rate event that is valued and looked forward to by not only me, but the many, many visitors too.”

A big thank you goes out to Save-On-Foods Garrison for their contribution to the event.

Cultus Lake Christmas Sponsorship Profile

This blog post was developed in response to a request from the Cultus Lake Park Community Events and Engagement Committee – which is made up of community volunteers.

IG Wealth Management is the Santa sponsor for Cultus Lake Christmas.

IG Wealth Management has been in Canada since 1926. They are a planning organization that helps companies and families to reach their financial goals – both big and small. While many people know that the company is a leader in mutual funds, the fact is they do so much more – especially in the area of financial planning. They have more Certified Financial Planners than any firm in Canada and they justifiably take great pride in this accreditation.

IG Wealth Management has been involved with Cultus Lake Christmas since it began. They are instrumental in working with Santa so that the jolly old fellow keeps time in his busy schedule to come to the event for both nights to visit with the children! In fact, the IG Wealth Management team has been around for so long that they remember the fun when they helped Santa to arrive by helicopter! They have also been a popcorn sponsor of Cultus Lake Park’s highly popular Movie in the Park events.

The IG Wealth Management team is actively involved with community events such as Cultus Lake Christmas and they consider it a great privilege to partner with the Community Events and Engagement Committee on this fun, family-friendly event.

A big thank you goes out to our additional sponsors: Gidney Signs, Naomi Adams of Century 21 Creekside Real Estate, Catharine Deveau of Century 21 Creekside Real Estate, Morrows Moving and Storage (1976) Ltd, Bowes Pickfords Ltd., Vedder River Inn, S.T.I. Steeltec Industries Ltd., Cultus Lake Golf Club, Cultus Lake Waterpark and Cultus Lake Adventure Park.

We would also like to send a special thank you to our Public Works team for all of their hard work making this event a reality and for the beautiful lights already lighting up Cultus Lake Park!

In addition, we are grateful for all of the efforts put forward by the Cultus Lake Volunteer Fire Department to make this event a success. They will be at the event, in charge of roasting marshmallows for the kids. And of course, they will be keeping us all safe as we stay warm by the fire.

We are able to do events like Cultus Lake Christmas because of our fantastic community support.
