Here we come a wassailing, Rustlers style

A group of merry Christmas carolers were out and about in the Twelfth Avenue area of Williams Lake Tuesday evening.

A group of merry Christmas carolers led by members of the Williams Lake Rustlers Rugby Football Club’s Todd and Caren Pritchard were out and about in the Twelfth Avenue area of Williams Lake Tuesday evening spreading Christmas cheer to all.

The Rustlers will also be hosting its 17th annual Polar Bear Swim on New Year’s Day at Scout Island. Members of the Lake City Secondary Falcons’ boys and girls rugby teams will be out in the community for the coming days collecting pledges for the event, with the funds raised going back into junior development for the high school rugby program in Williams Lake.

Registration is at noon, before swimmers take the plunge at 1 p.m. There will be prizes for best costume, high pledge earner and more. No pledges are necessary to swim. All ages are welcome. Heated trailers will be set up on site for changing into warm clothes.
