Jackie Northey – These Are OUR Children

The Christmas season is a time of giving, generosity and coming together as a community, no matter where you live. But there’s something going on in the tiny little community of Bashaw that is unusual and almost inexplicably magical, and it is literally transforming lives. You could look at the Sugar Plum Ball event, or the Angels Among Us campaign, you could study the impacts of the Bashaw Food Bank and the annual Christmas hampers, or the Bashaw United Church’s new care packages for seniors that are being distributed around town right now. It wouldn’t matter which community program or event you examined, you’d find that behind every single one of them there has been a cultural paradigm shift in Bashaw in recent years that has magnified the impact and effectiveness of everything that we do to support those in need, and has fundamentally changed the way we create community. If you want to know what the secret is, you’d be hard pressed to find a better person in town to share it with you than Jackie Northey. Thanks for listening, and Merry Christmas!
